Joslyn Francis Lord Muncaster and the Hon. Alan Joseph Pennington^ the joint acting executors. The personalty was sworn under < £ 25,000. Her ladyship was the eldest daughter of the third Baron Lowther, Augustus Lord Muncaster, and died on the 12th of July last, at Vevey, Switzerland, at the age of 35, having executed her will in July, 1863. Her ladyship has bequeathed to her sister, the Hon. Louisa Drummond, wife of Mr. E. A. Drummond, all her jewels, with the exception of a pearl necklace, bracelet and earrings, and diamond star, which are bequeathed to her ladyship's two brothers, the executors, who are also appointed residuary legatees of both the real and personal estate. The will of Mr. Edmund Hanborough Joynson, of St. Mary Cray, Kent, paper manufacturer, was proved in the London court by his brother-in law, Mr. Charles Robert Collings, together with Mr. John Gotch Hep- burn, and Mr. Charles Beadle, jun., of Erith, the executors and trustees. The personalty was sworn under .£35,000. The will bears date April 23 last, and he died June 29, at Eastbourne, Sussex. To his wife he has bequeathed an immediate legacy of £500 and the furniture, &o. also the sum of £10,000 under the terms of their marriage settlement, and leaves her a life interest in his estate at Beckley, Kent. This estate, upon her decease, is to be divided equally amongst their children, who are also appointed resi- duary legatees of the real and personal estate, including his share in the business of paper manufacturer, carried on by his father and himself. To each of his three sisters, as well as to a friend, he has left legacies of .£500. There are legacies left to his coachman, gardener, and all his other servants.
