That seems a lot of money for 2400.00 plus a few extra pounds

In fact I really cannot believe that this man  left this amount of money, I wonder where he got it from to be honest, only found his marriage  and death, can't out his details online till I have cleared it with his family distantly related to me , his wife appears to have left nothing
