  9. She died in Liverpool and probate was granted at Liverpool. can't find any link to Scotland through husbands famiy either.
  10. I have found the probate for one of my relations on Ancestry. There are 2 results, one from England & Wales, National Probate Calendar (Index of Wills and Administrations), 1858-1995 and another from Scotland, National Probate Index (Calendar of Confirmations and Inventories), 1876-1936. This is the first time I've come across the probate being registered in Scotland, any idea why this would be? Both entries are exactly the same.

  13. Thanks for all that . The name Curvengen sounds familiar but dont know were from. Robert did marry a Martha Bunny in England but she die between 1871 and 1881.Wether that is what is refered to in relation to his death.
