BE IT KNOWN that Hubert Henry White of North View, Rickmansworth Road, Pinner in the County of Middlesex formerly of Redgrave House, Harcourt Avenue, Southend on Sea in the County of Essex died on the 2nd day of April 1942 at Northwood Cottage Hospital, Northwood in the County of Middlesex AND BE IT FURTHER KNOWN that at the date hereunder written the last Will and Testament (a copy whereof is hereunto annexed) of the said deceased was proved and registered in the Principal Probate Registry of His Majesty's High Court of Justice and that Administration of all the Estate which by law devolves to and vests in the personal representative of the said deceased was granted by the aforesaid Court to Clara White of North View aforesaid Widow the Relict of deceased the sole Executrix named in the said Will
And it is hereby confirmed that an Affidavit for Inland Revenue has been delivered wherein it is shewn that the gross value of the said Estate in Great Britain (exclusive of what the said deceased may have been entitled to as a Trustee and not beneficially) amounts to £ 674 - 3 - 9 and that the net value of the personal Estate amounts to £ 78 - 14 - 7
Dated the 29th day of May 1942
1. In 1881 Hubert was shown as being at Cranleigh School as a 14 year old pupil, in 1891 he is shown living in his father's house and his occupation is given as brewer. His father Thomas in his Will of 1905 appoints Hubert as an Executor and shows him as a farmer farming Lydling farm in Shackleford. Hubert writes his Will in 1907 and by that time he has moved to Southend on Sea, though he does not give his occupation at this time. He dies in 1942 in Pinner 35 years after writing his Will and without altering a word of it. This makes me suspect that he had no children.
2. In order to confirm that we have the right Hubert Henry White I checked the GRO death indexes to confirm his age. This checked out.
