Ann Cary Randolph Bankhead (1791-1826) View Interactive Version ]

Also known as: Anne Cary

Ann (Anne) Cary Randolph, the eldest child of Martha Jefferson Randolph and Thomas Mann Randolph, was born at Monticello on 23 January 1791. On 19 September 1808, at the age of seventeen, Ann married Charles Lewis Bankhead, the son of Dr. John Bankhead, who proved to be an irredeemable alcoholic with a violent temper. Their first child, John Warner Bankhead, was born in 1810, and three more children followed. In 1811, the Bankheads purchased "Carlton," an 800-acre farm adjacent to Monticello, which they later deeded to trustees in order to pay off their debts. Ann died at Carlton in February 1826 at the age of thirty-five, just twelve days after the premature birth of her son, William.
