Isle of Man / Re: TG Moore 'The Manx Millionaire'
« on: Saturday 10 October 20 11:20 BST (UK)  »

A major source of the manx millionnaire's wealth was a significant bequest left by his aunt Annie Quale Townend (see attached photograph) who died in Christchirch New Zealand in 1914.  Her estate was valued at c 800,000 and a large part of this (after stamp and estate duties of 190,225) was left to Thomas Hamilton Moore, her cousin.

I am trying to track down the document of the bequest which included a special duty stamp.
