53 Torrington Square Middlesex is the entry on the Probate record.  My tree on Ancestry is Bailey_Joanna it's all on there.

As for the money, I think he passed his business assets to his son.  Not sure what happened after he sold Empire Farm...  No idea why he doesn't appear on any death indexes.

Joanne, do you have the actual will, or just the probate entry as on your Anc page.
It would be interesting to see it all  and perhaps have some clues.
Isiah is proving very difficult to find.
Am sending you a PM.

I don't know what a PM is...
Here is the will...interesting that it refers to an alias: John Wilson.
Also, his executor is in Australia...

It looks possible that he was registered and buried as John Wilson.
Please see the other thread on the same topic http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=736841.msg5828321#msg5828321

Christiana Whitfield was my great, great grandmother. My grandmother was Ianthy Ethel Maydwell. Christiana took up the Maydwell surname as an alias, as her and Isaiah split when they reached Melbourne, Victoria, Australia after leaving Tasmania, Australia sometime circa 1909-1911.

I have researched as much as I can....it can all be found on Ancestry. The only child of Christiana's that detail is scarce on is that of her youngest daughter Christina Whitfield...all the other children have been accounted for.

I hope this helps...
