I found John Francis GLEW mentioned in the extract of Probate registers (Will’s) for 1932, 1938 and 1951.As follows:-
Sarah GLEW died 19/9/19324 Windsor Street,York , widow.Probate 28/9/1932 ,York, to John Francis GLEW, retired railway official, and Frederick Alippi GLEW, naval pensioner(£249)
Alice GLEW died 10/11/1938of 12 Charles Street,York, wife of John Francis GLEW.ProbateYork, 22/11/1938 to solicitor and Emma KIRBY, spinster (£42)
John Francis GLEW, died 17/2/1951/ of Charles Street,York, Probate 8/5/1951 to Reginald HATFIELD (£3,809).
The named person that Probate is granted to, is the person who carries out the wishes of the Will, and is usually a member of the family, friend, or a solicitor / lawyer.The (£) gives some indication of the value of the ‘estate’ of the deceased.
I also found the following related entries to the family:-
Fredercik Alippi GLEW, died 23/6/1954 4 Windsor Street,York, Probate 22/9/1954,York, to Eliza GLEW, spinster (then to Margaret Cecelia GLEW ) (£1,856)
Eliza GLEW died 15/10/19544 Windsor Street,York, spinster.Administration 16/11/1954 to Margaret Cecelia GLEW, spinster(£611)
Lucy GLEW, died 24/5/19594 Windsor Street,York, spinster.Probate 7/9/1959,York, to Margaret Cecelia GLEW, spinster(£1,142)
It would appear that most of the girls in the family died as spinsters.Perhaps the oldest girl, Sarah (born 1867) had married and had a family.It could be that Reginald HATFIELD is a son-in-law of John Francis.I have no inforamtion for Wilfred.
