I have been trying to resolve an issue with death records for a Mary Ann Callen born 10 Aug 1870 in Southampton, Hampshire, England. She married Joseph Horatio Follett Sept. quarter of 1890 in Southampton and he died Sept. quarter of 1920 in Southampton.
Now for the death records.
I have found 2 possible death records, one for Mary Ann Callen (d. 1926), which I assigned to her unmarried aunt of the same name, and one for Mary Ann Follett in Basingstoke in 1948. My question is relating to a linked probate, which states that
- she was a spinster, and
- the probate of just under £4000 was awarded to Lloyds Bank when there was a living son and younger daughter.
Could the death be an incorrect one and I need to continue to look further?
