NSW probate granted 9 November 1937,  so seven months after Victoria.

There is an RChatter who goes to NSW archives to photograph NSW probate packets.  You can find her offer on the resources board.   

Each of the eight juridctions that form the Australian federation,  have their own Parliaments, own court systems etc. 

Probate matters in NSW in 1930s were dealt with at NSW Supreme Court,  and, of course, if several jurisdictions involved in any deceased estate matters, once proven for each jurisdiction, the file would be sealed for the next jurisdiction's determinations... a deceased person could hold real estate in more than one jurisdiction ... and not just in Victoria ... perhaps not just in Australia ...  Echuca is on a state border. :D

Supreme Courts regularly dealt with a matter that is within their authority and seal it,to then  pass it on to the next authority...

Top notch info. Thank you.

I will look for the Rchatter you mention.

It makes more sense now. I was wondering how the other probate was wrapped up so fast as I know there was a lot of trouble with the estate and went on for a long period of time.
So it looks like I'll have plenty of reading to do when I get both probates!
