Hi Groom,

There are no addresses for the people that received the estate, just those who witnessed the will?

Hi,

I think I've found the marriage for Brunhilda Lucia HARRIS to Thomas FIGG :)


Brunhelda L HAMS
May 1989    Bromley    11  793
Thomas A FUGG


There is only a transcription at Ancestry and FindMyPast so I can't see what is actually on the index but I think that the place it occurred and the similarities in the names and make it a very good candidate :)


Although I can't see a death registration it looks like Thomas died just six months after Brunhilde,

In Brunhilde's will whose sister is mentioned?


Regards,
Daisy
