LORD G III MTT-I OFTPE'S WILL. The corapLcatod will of the late Lord Grim- thorps, who died leaving an estate .aiucd at £ 2,000,000, cio. c on 200 testamentary docu- ments. NvLs be I' .ro the Probate Court, on Monday. Hi; d-eeeasad jjcer waij known as chief partner of B.x-kctfs Bank, Leeds, had ooen the leader of the Pari:ameatary Bar, and was an enthusiast on the subject of clocks and bells, it being chiefly owing to him that the clock in the tower of the Houses of Parliament was de- signed arId. erected. The plaintiff in the probate action arising out of his estate was Mr. Francis Blake Lascelks Beale, solicitor, of St. Albans, and the defendants were the present Lord Grim- thorpe, Mr. Edmund Backett Faber, and Mr. Alfred James Bethell. There were quite a number of relati cs cited, who were represented by a large array of counsel. Mr. Barnard tated that the number of testa- mentary papers ..hich had to be perused and arranged was K. in all. Mr. Beale, the testator's solicitor, had gene !nr: u^h thega papers most carefully, ahd ne took out- what papers he thought were entiled to probate, and then cited everybody who was invested under those docu- ments. Eventually he parties agreed upon a deed that the will and J5 codicils- should be pro- pounced for. By c-.Uiug about seven witnessea it would be possibL to prove all these docu- ments, though there 1, as a doubt about the dates of some of them. That, however, in view of the deed, was probably immaterial. Sir Gorell Barnes, after hearing the evidence of Mr. Beale, who stated that the estate was approximately £ 2,000,000, and other witnesses, granted pro- bate in solemn form of the 26 documents.
