Died in Ealing, Middlesex


  • George made a will in 1965, appointing Alan Robert Ferris (a commissioner for oaths) as executor.  At first reading the will appears unstructured, but it seems to have a clear logic behind it. Relationships are not specified in the will, but after seeing what each of his known descendants was left  it would appear that he had taken the following course:

    Each grandchild, and some nieces,  was to receive ?100.
    The two grandchildren living with him at the time received ?250.
    His two oldest surviving children received ?500 each.
    The remainder of his estate was split evenly between his three youngest sons.

    Emma Atkins, who recieved ?100 is either his niece or his sister.
    Jane Bryant, who also received ?100, could be his sister, but is more likely to be a child of hers and William Bryant, her husband.

    Almost all of the individuals named in the will can be placed into family groups of his children.  Only one is left unplaced.  Vera North of 37 St Andrews Road, East Acton, may be a grandchild who had married and hence taken their husbands surname.  She recieved ?100.
