I believe my great great grandmother was Frances Harriett Yates. Her entry on the Probate Calendar reads
"Frances Harriett Yates of 32 Manor Road Chelsea Middlsex spinster died 24 January 1892 Administration London 5 December to the solicitor of the Treasury Effects £1742 5s 5d”.
I presume this means she left no will. Or does it mean she named no executor?
Whichever, I am hoping that after her death someone (or some people) tried to prove they were an heir. She was a spinster so it APPEARED she had no living relatives. However, I have good reason to believe she may have been the mother of an illegitimate son (from whom she was estranged), my great grandfather. He had several children, grandchildren etc.
The point is I am hoping to prove that the mother Frances Harriett Yates and the illegitimate child were related.
Is there a way I can find out if anyone ever claimed her estate and if so who they were?
