Note on Wife: Elizabeth WILLIAMS

From Mike Kempson: An Elizabeth Kempson died, aged 88 years, on 29 July 1953 at Rosedale Street, Weston super Mare. Probate was granted to Raymond Tom Piper, band manager. This probate entry seems to fit with Elizabeth (nee Williams). The somewhat strange thing is that the effects of Charles Henry are recorded as being £732 and those of this Elizabeth six years later were £3599. I have trawled through all the Elizabeth Kempsons and other than this possible match cannot find another death that could be Elizabeth (nee Williams) nor where Elizabeth (of Weston) could have come from. The apparent discrepancy in probate values could be caused by a number of factors including the possibility that Elizabeth Chare being a widow may have owned a house from her first marriage.
