Annie Jennings, née Thomas
12 November 1884 – 20 November 1999

Annie Jennings was a British supercentenarian and the world's second oldest living person, after American Sarah Knauss, at Jennings' death at age 115 years 8 days. Jennings hailed from Chesterfield, Derbyshire where she celebrated her 114th birthday. She became the oldest living person in the United Kingdom following the death of Lucy Jane Askew in 1997. Jennings held the title for about two years and was succeeded as the oldest person in the UK by Eva Morris. A teacher who never had children, she is second only to Charlotte Hughes on the UK's all time list, and the 26th oldest person on record since April 2009.

Jennings disliked being in the Guinness Book of Records. She was the last surviving person documented as born in 1884.
