Appledore
« on: Thursday 28 June 18 04:17 BST (UK) »
Folks,
Thomas Appledore dies 19 Oct 1841 at Penrith and is buried at St Stephen the Martyr.I have not been able to find record of a will though being a former convict i was not surprised.
Searching Trove i found several references to what appears to be a clearance sale of horses,cattle and produce.

Would it have been common for the wife to assume ownership without a will?

well some of the newspaper notices say that the auction is "by orders of the executors",  so I think there was a will somewhere.

He could have also died intestate and an executor may have been appointed by application of a Letter of Administration which is an authority to administer the estate of someone who has died without making a will.  I possibly haven't explained that very clearly :-\

Thank you all.
Cando,your explanation reads right to me.
After a letter of administration is granted,would the matter be dealt with as if a will had been found?

If an Intestacy or otherwise, it would have been dealt with at NSW Supreme Court, Eccs Division, and the person appointed to administer was the Executor ...

Description
This series includes papers for both testate and intestate estates both before and after the establishment of the Curator of Intestate Estates in 1847. Intestate papers in the series do not belong with the numbered series of Curator's Case Papers (6/3481-910), and their original order was disrupted before being transferred as State archives.
Due to their miscellaneous nature they have been boxed chronologically and indexed by name, regardless of form, whether part of a numbered sequence or not, etc. The index is available in the Western Sydney reading room (COD516).
The papers comprise the following: oaths, petitions, caveats, affidavits, notices to creditors, lists of accounts current, precipes for citation, letters of administration, copies of wills, some correspondence and other miscellaneous papers.

The series is not complete, and the information varies from cases to case. An index entry may signify either a bundle of papers including a copy of a will, or it may record only a creditor's account of money owed to him by the deceased.

(X953-54, 6/4185-97). 2 vols, 14 boxes.
