T71/1594 p. 134: letter to T.F. Hill, 18 Tokenhouse Yard, dated 02/11/1837 stating there is a challenge from someone else interested in estate of Francis Bowen and asking if JB is really a personal representative?

T71/1606: letter from T.F. Hill acting for John Burke as cover to a letter from J.C. Clarke, 4 Water St Lane, Tower St, stating that Clarke had looked at Francis Bowen senior's will, and John Burke is executor only for his [executor's] lifetime, as Francis Bowen had omitted 'the normal clause, "his executors, administrators or assigns" '. Clarke was married to one of Francis Bowen's daughters 'in whose sight I make this application.' 'I am further inclined to make this application in consequence of Mrs Clarke not having received one penny from the Estate since her father's death.'
