Ann Cary Randolph Bankhead (1791–1826), Thomas Jefferson’s eldest grandchild and the daughter of Martha Jefferson Randolph and Thomas Mann Randolph, was born at Monticello on 23 January 1791. On 19 Sept. 1808 she married Charles Lewis Bankhead, the son of Mary Warner Lewis Bankhead and one of her grandfather’s closest friends, John Bankhead. Three sons and a daughter from this union reached adulthood. In 1811 the Bankheads purchased Carlton, an 800-acre farm adjacent to Monticello. Charles Bankhead proved to be alcoholic, abusive, and improvident. Trustees managed his estate after 1815, when Jefferson sought to ease a financial crisis by adding 130 acres to the couple’s holdings. Ann Bankhead died of complications following childbirth five months before her grandfather, on 11 February 1826, and was buried in the family graveyard at Monticello.
