I would think, as I have written earlier that it is the Noble/Ross connection.
You have uncle and cousin in censuses.
You have the will which might help.

As you already had some of this information, did you come to any similar conclusions?

The nephew William Ross also gives some clues when you trace him back.

There are possible Ross connections around and you could try Scotlandís People to see if there are records there.

Probate record

Briefly Ö

William Ross, 1 Chatham Road, Grosvenor Street, Camberwell, Printer, the Nephew

Heywood,

I think you're right about the 1861 census.
Where can I find the full probate record ? I don't have a subscription to  Ancestryor FindMyPast.
I live in the Netherlands so I can't visit any record office.

Windley: Woodford Essex, Chigwell Essex, Blackmore Essex.
Halls: Chigwell and Woodford, Essex
Ambrose and Corteling: Sri Lanka

I tried to do it (and did) via this but it was a bit of a fiddle. So I do hope you are more successful (quicker).  ;)

https://www.gov.uk/search-will-probate

You have the dates which you can enter on advanced search.
This is the page which I hope will work for you.
https://probatesearch.service.gov.uk/Calendar?surname=Ross&yearOfDeath=1872&page=7#calendar

It would be pg 203 for 1872 which doesnít show on the right page  ::) but pages 202 and 204 do show so it is between them.  :)
