Family History Beginners Board / What is this?
« on: Saturday 04 February 17 00:35 GMT (UK)  »
I found this link when googling the former address of a relative. Can anyone tell me what this is?


BUTCHER, .Walter, 169, Lower. Derby Road,
Portsmouth, in ,the cojanty of Hants, trading
'as W. BUTCHER &.-SON, Pickle Manufacturer,
and' also 'form'erly at 78,' Lower Derby
Road, Portsmouth aforesaid, as W.
No. of Matter—8 of .1933.
Trustee's Name, Address and Description—
Pyke. Cyril John, 87, High Street, Portsmouth.,
Official Receiver.
Date of Release—June 1, 1934

I'm wondering if anyone can help me. I have traced a distant relative but she died at the beginning of this month before I had chance to meet her. She does not have any children or direct family still living and I am wondering if I can find out if she has left a will? She mentioned she had some photographs of my relatives and I hate to think that they are going to get binned in a house clearance or something.

Is there any way I could find out who the executors of her estate are?

Thanks for your help!

I am looking for anyone who might have records, photos, or memories of people living in Old Alresford, Alresford and Cheriton.

I would be especially interested in anything linked to the family names Tanner or Compton and anything about Upton Manor (Upton House) or The Grange.

I am looking for anyone who might have any information on Old Alresford and/or Upton Manor.

I believe my family (Compton/Tanner/Shipp) used to work there and I would dearly love anyone who may also have lived there and remember the to get in touch.

Or if anyone has any registers or photographs from the Manor I would love to see them.

Please get in touch!
