One more question please, whilst I have the interest of some excellent helpers:

Alfred John Banks had a half brother named Joseph who received a letter 26 Jan 1893 about money and property held in Chancery to the value of 6000 pounds under the name of John Banks and referenced as Cdv-36.
Maybe the half brother claimed on behalf of his family but how do I find out what  Cdv 6-36 was all about.
The letter suggests that the estate belonged to a John Banks who had also left for the Colonies many years ago and the property was believed to be in Covent Gardens, London.
There is one great uncle John Banks I have not researched satisfactorily who was alive in 1793 as per the Will of his brother Henry Banks of 33 Upper Eastsmithfield, Aldgate, also a currier.
