Edward Rose Tunno
He had homes at Llangennech, near Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, Wales, Boverton Castle, Llantwit Major, Glamorganshire, Wales and 19 Upper Brook Street, Middlesex, England. In 1825 he married Caroline Raikes, but they had no children.
His parents were John Tunno (1746-1819), a Scottish-born merchant who had made a fortune in Charleston, South Carolina, and then another in London; and his wife Margaret Rose of Charleston, who married in 1781. Because of his role as executor of his father-in-law's plantation interests in Jamaica, he is listed as a claimant for compensation after the passing of the Slavery Abolition Act 1833.
His coalmine at Llangennech was worked by James Shears from 1824.
He was the uncle of the MP Edward John Sartoris (1814-88), to whom he bequeathed much of his estate.
