Thank you Killiney history for posting that link. I have enjoyed reading through it. Fascinating.

I have just logged in to this thread after a break and was so sad to see the message from Zoe Northeast that Max D passed away in August. My condolences to you. He helped me so many times on this site.

Thank you dathai for those two wills and details. For years I have been meaning to get a copy of the 1938 one for Richard. The story is that he left each of my mother's brothers and sisters one hundred pound which was untold wealth for them. They all had menial jobs at the time. On the gravestone at Deansgrange William is described as Gentleman which I feel is a little pretentious.

Thank you dathai. That is interesting. I had not copped that fact. It is some years since I have looked them up on the census (and my data base is lost!!!). She is only living in two rooms but may have had an interest in other property. Her brother Richard was at this time married. He did not have children. He also had some means because family lore has it he was very supportive of my mother's family when my grandfather (whom he had reared) died so young and left seven young children.
I might have posted this fact before but some years ago I literally stumbled on the Conway grave when I took the wrong route in the graveyard and since then I feel there is a story to be unveiled about the Conways. Ha ha I should be writing novels!

Thank you Kiltaglassan for this info. I'll get checking. That is the family in the 1901census.

Thank you Elwyn and rosie 17 for your replies. I will keep snooping. I went to visit their grave which needs some work and looking at Elizabeth's name I felt I had to investigate just how she died.

Thank you so much rosie17.That is the correct person. They lived for many years at 45 Mulgrave St. I wonder would that mean that she died in London? The 11/1 seems such a trivial amount nowadays to bother putting it in probate. I will keep looking.
