    Mr. Palmer was the only son of John Palmer, Esq., formerly of Lincoln's Inn, and afterwards of Chancery Lane, who died at Kentish Town, in 1801, aged 84.

Mr. John Grove Palmer was, on his mother's side, descended from the Strangwayes of Yorkshire, to whom was related the great Chief Justice Holt. By his wife, who was a Miss Ball, of New Providence, and who died a short time before him, he has left a son, Robert John Palmer, Esq., of Listowel, in the county of Kerry, and two daughters; one married to the Hon. James Christie Eston [sic], Chief Justice of Bermuda, and the other the wife of Captain Austen of the Navy.
    He was a gentleman of strict honour, agreeable manners, and exemplary morals, and was esteemed by all who knew him.
