 I think we are onto something Neil (well possibly the same wrong path ;D but it's nice to have company  :) ). 

The tree has a good lead on a son of David Rossiter Edgar so maybe we can find him.

cheers,
  Ros

I received a copy of Fredericks will and he bequeathed all he had to his nephew.. Ross Edgar when he reached the age of 21. This was in 1937.

So the will was written in 1937 ....?  Or was it probated in 1937?   And it is possible that David Rossington Edgar (known as Ross to distinguish him from his father  [speculation]) was the nephew even though he was only 16'ish at the time ...?

cheers,
  Ros

adding : And given that David Rossington Edgar's mother died just after his birth he may have been raised by his grandmother Matron Minnie Rose at the time Frederick was living with her. [more speculation]

Can you please give us all the details on the will?  Witnesses etc.  You never know what may help Greg.   (getting late here and not focussing well but David Rossiter Edgar was closest I could find on ER in Mullewa and then a google search found that tree)

cheers,
  Ros

Thanks Greg,
In matron Rose death notices there is Margaret (Mrs Dyer) as a daughter  (deceased) so possibly wife of John Francis Dyer the executor of the will?

Let me see what I can find ...

Adding :
  aha John F Dyer married Margaret E Rose in Geraldton in 1926.
  and on 1937 ER John Francis Dyer living in Mullewa with Margaret Elvina Dyer
