I think the Thomas Charles Williams from the probate record was the nephew of Lewis, son of his older brother Charles
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X7P9-J38

Charles Williams married Sarah Dury 7 July 1891 in the parish church of Gelligaer when he was 42 and she was 19

birth reg Thomas Charles Williams sept qtr 1904 Merthyr Tydfil vol 11a pg 734 mmn Dury

Thomas Charles was baptised 26 June 1904 in the parish church son of Charles Williams, engineer, and Sarah of Hengoed.
