Annie Jennings, née Thomas (12 November 1884 – 20 November 1999) was a British supercentenarian and the world's second oldest living person, after American Sarah Knauss, at Jennings' death at age 115 years 8 days. Jennings hailed from Chesterfield, Derbyshire where she celebrated her 114th birthday. She became the oldest living person in the United Kingdom following the death of Lucy Jane Askew on 9 December 1997. Jennings held the title for about two years and was succeeded as the oldest person in the UK by Eva Morris. A teacher who never had children, she is the second oldest Briton ever behind only Charlotte Hughes.
