Jane Cuzzins, widow of William Cuzzins


Entry in the Minute Book of the Seaman’s Hospital Fund, re an update of the claim of Jane Cuzzins, dated Dec 2nd 1755. The note mentions that she did not appear at the meeting and the pension was stopped. It is assumed that she was the wife of seaman William Cuzzins, who was awarded a pension for loss of sight. William Cuzzins wrote to the Trustees in 1758, when the decision to stop his pension was upheld. The Fund was an insurance fund for sailors and their families.
