Mary's will

This second document from Mary's probate packet is a petition for probate. John Atkinson (married to Mary's deceased daughter Jane Penelope), George Miller of the Savings Bank, Sydney, and James Norton, Gentleman, are named as executors of the will. Mary outlived five of her seven children. Her estate is divided into thirds to support her two living daughters, Elizabeth Long Innes and Eliza Thomson and the grandchildren of her dead daughter, Jane Penelope Atkinson. The will specifically states money should be set aside for the 'maintenance education and advancement in life' of all of her grandchildren, whether they be boys or girls. From NRS 13660 [Series 1, #3279]
