Extract . . . . .
1 Dec 1880     
Belfast Morning News     
"tile wife of James T. Burne, H.M.I.R. of a son. HARPCR—November 20, at Churchbrae, Stra-bane."     


My immediate thought was H.Majesty's Inland Revenue (as per UK HMRev&Customs currently)



"The wise man knows how little he knows, the foolish man does not". My Grandfather & Father.

"You can’t give kindness away.  It keeps coming back". Mark Twain (?).

And that's what it turned out to be. His probate notice says "Inland Revenue Officer, retired".

He actually had two probate notices - in England and Ireland. It seems he had property in both countries.
