    This is just guesswork as most of my family didn't have headstones but could it have been added at a later date to her death?

      Thank you - had just been to the library to check it out - so no joy there, he hadn't found gold either, just a blacksmith there

        sorry not sure what you are referring? Her name on the gravestone?

          I know but just wondered if a rich member of the family put the headstone on quite a long time after her death and burial.

          She did leave some money in a will so perhaps there was more and she arranged for the headstone before she died.

            Yes that could be a possibility too, I will see what the will brings, it says available on 9 August....seems so far away.

            A previous generation relative did lots of family tree work, and he wrote some info that has been handed onto me in recent years, and he states in the writing 'as one enters the churchyard the imposing memorial of Grace Hendy Lugg can be seen' - and that is it, he says no more about her apart from how she links to the tree. It certainly is imposing - there are no others like it from what I can remember. The only other large one has many names including those that died in Australia.

              Bit of a wild one. I wonder if Grace was a beneficiary in the Will of Joseph Fenn Snr. She appeared to be a Cook in the household of Joseph Fenn Snr in 1871 although attached to somebody's mother in law?
              Joseph Fenn Snr died 1875.
              Grace was living on her own means from 1881. Her grave monument is similar to that of Joseph Fenn Snr

                Or maybe Sarah Williams in the 1871 census for whom Grace was a Cook. She died in 1871 leaving a Will of under £18,000

                  My great great aunt never married. She was a cook too. She never had her own home and lived with various relatives at the end of her life. She left a surprising amount of money in her will and the only bit I can a count for was a legacy of £300 her own father left her. Perhaps various employers left her money, perhaps she was frugal and a clever investor, I can't find out. Perhaps you have a similar scenario?

                    thanks Vera, I will look into both, it must be something like that. Enough money to buy a property but instead lodged with everyone else!

                    It does seem the same, perhaps wills might solve the mystery. She may have had a bit from many sources like someone else mentioned - everyone spoilt the maiden aunt.

                      I've just come on here to let you know that whilst checking through the recent wills I have purchased of fairly affluent twigs on my tree (from £30,000 - £90,000 from 1889-1954) in each there have been bequests to various staff members from £50-£500. Where that member of staff has continued to work for the next family they have benefited twice. I thought I would just let you know that it did happen.

                        very interesting thank you, maybe I need to look at her employers, I am still waiting for my will, overdue so hopefully it will be here soon.

                          my will has finally arrived, and tells me very little. Interestingly she had stocks in the pacific Canadian railway and the grand trunk railway company of Canada. She left everything to her elder sisters children.

                          I will go back through this thread and see if I can find some wills to order.

                          she said that she wanted a head stone over her grave, so guess they took her at her word!

                          I have added the will to the gallery on ancestry.

                            Ordered the will of Fenn - which has finally come...and that is not really a will, just a letter, I had assumed as it said probate and not administration it would have more info :(

                            so looks like the mystery of her money will be unsolved.

                              Hum. I am reading it not as admon but as executors according to a codicil in the will. I don't think you have been sent a copy of the will. All my admons are clearly described as admons because the deceased died intestate.

                              Opinions, anyone?

                                this is the second one I have had like this, I thought if it said 'probate' and not 'administration' there would be something more :(

                                  They've got it wrong, I've just checked the register on Ancestry where it quite clearly says the will was proved. What they have sent you is the grant of probate NOT an Administration and neglected to attach the will.

                                      Thank you ladies, this is the second like that, I guess I will start a conversation with them, will wait till I order the next.

                                        I think its wrong too (just to add my two penny worth). It clearly says at the top the WILL was proved. When I've had wills in the past they come with this sheet as well as the will itself.
