WILL OF THE LATE LORD LONSDALE.
The will of the late Earl of LONSDALE has just been proved in Doctors'
Commons, by the Right Honourable William, Earl of LONSDALE, the Honourable
Henry Cecil LOWTHER, (sons of the deceased), and Sir John BECKETT, Bart.
The deceased gives a very large portion of his property to his wife,
(who died in his lifetime.)
To his cousin, Mary Frances THOMPSON £10,000; but by his codicil, he
revokes this legacy, gives her an annuity of £1,000 per annum instead.
To his friend the Hon. G. O'CALLAGHAN, £2,000.
By the codicil, to his son Cecil and family (in addition to the benefit
they receive by the will) £30,000.
His lordship observes, "My domestics and servants are so numerous that
it would be next to impossible to name them separately; and desires his
executors to compensate them leaving the amount to their discretion. He desires to
be buried in Lowther, in a "private manner."
The will is very long, and dated 1836. The personal property is sworn
under the large sum of £100,000.
