William Wheatley - The Grange
« on: Wednesday 05 July 17 03:17 BST (UK) »
Hi there I was hoping to find out a bit more information about my great great uncle William
William Henry Wheatley

When he died (june 1900) he owned  The Grange, Loughton or Essex

He bequeathed it to his sister Sarah Wheatley
I was just wondering  Did she sell it? how would I find a record of that?
also I was just wondering if I could find out where he was buried. are there any photos of him ?
thank you

Henry E Lester may be the buyer of the Grange from your great uncle. William Henry Wheatley died June 1900 - by Feb 1901 Henry E Lester was occupying the Grange.

Are you sure William Henry Wheatley bought "The Grange" or a property that included the word "Grange" - eg "Wood Grange? No guarantee "Miss Wheatley" at Wood Grange is William's sister - might just be coincidence?

Find a will   https://www.gov.uk/search-will-probate

This site explains how to obtain William's will. Then click on "Start now >", select "Wills and Probate 1858-1996" enter Surname and year of death for basic details of the will.

You could also check for Sarah Agnes' will?

A Henry Andrews, Australian merchant is in "The Grange, Upper Park" on the 1891 Census. He is still there in 1897 according to this death notice in The Times, 20 May -

"DEATHS
Andrews - On the 19th inst, Anne Whiting, daughter of Henry and Mary Whiting Andrews, The Grange, Loughton, Essex"

So, William Henry's possible occupancy sometime between May 1897 and Feb 1900.
