Something happened in 1910, 1894, 1874 and 1873 what does this all mean?

Rebecca, wife of William, Sophia Louisa and George teir children and others were due to hear somethig to their advantage in 1873: https://search.findmypast.co.uk/bna/...ek%20bousfield


So there was another will swirling around, but that should not affect William's will.


Probably he had left money in trust, which changed on death of beneficiaries. Selby Heles were a dodgy lot. A Devonshire family whose ancestors dun my family out of their rightful inheritance.

Clara married a William Downes Selby Hele on 16 July 1873 just after William Cheek Bousfield's death.

There is no will, I asked for the 1873 one, and it is letters of administration and there was no will

The 1910 probate it says administration (with will), does that mean they found a will and I should have ordered that one?
It is the one to Selby Hele, who married William's "niece" Rebecca Clara Margaret Anderson

The 1873 probate is definitely a will. It says "the Will of William Cheek Bousfield". Or did you order Rebekah's probate instead? That one is an administration.

No, it is definitely Williams.
What they sent me says

On the 17th day of June 1873 the will (then in hand writing)
A of William Cheek Bousfield late of number 12 Eldon Street in the Borough and County of Newcastle Upon Tyne, Gentleman who died on the 24th day of May 1873 at 12 Eldon street aforesaid was proved in the district registry attached to her Majesty's Court of Probate at Newcastle Upon Tyne by the oath of Margaret Rebekah Clara Anderson of Eldon Street aforesaid, spinster the niece of the said deceased and one of the Executors therein named she having been first sworn duly to administer. George Muras and William Eastern, the other executors and two of the residuary legatees in trust named in the said will having renounced the probate and execution thereof.

Then at the bottom of the page is written Further Grant PR June 1910

I also have a form letter from them saying they are unable to provide a copy of the will because this is a Grant of letters of Administration

That can't be right.

Looking at the probate calendar, the one in 1873 was definitely a probate with a will, proved by MRC Anderson.

In 1894, limited administration was granted to Elizabeth Ann Story (no will mentioned).

In 1910 there was a further grant to William Downes Selby Hele; this was an administration with will annexed.

Presumably Margaret didn't finish administering the estate, or further assets came to light later. In any case, sending off for either the 1873 or 1910 grant should give you a copy of the will (probably the 1894 one too, although it isn't mentioned), so I would query what they're telling you.

There is quite a few entries I haven't read them.

https://www.thegazette.co.uk/all-not...heek+Bousfield

Some are other Wiiliam Cheek Bousfields and the William Cheek Bousfield as acting solicitor.

The other William Cheek Bousfield is his father.
The 24 June 1873 entry certainly says the will was proved 17 June 1873 and that is the date of the paper they sent me. I will go back to them and include the link to the newspaper!
