    • Date from Probate index. Death certificate shows his cousin Thomas Issell registered the death. I think this would have been the Thomas Issell born 1845 - son of John's first cousin Robert.

      Personal Estate under £100.
    Bequest £50 
    1884 
    • When his uncle Thomas Efford Issell wrote his will in 1870 he left £50 to John, but only after his (TEI's) wife's death. This didn't occur until 1884, after John had died, so it would have been his beneficiaries who received the money, according to the terms of his own will.
