  • 16 Mar 1923, BENEFIT UNDER MOTHER'S WILL. Son Cannot be Found.
    Before Mr. Justice Weigall, in the Practice Court yesterday, the Equity Trustees, Executors and Agency Company Limited, for whom Mr Walker (instructed by Messrs Leach and Thomson) appeared, applied for permission to administer the estate of Rachael McDonald, a widow, late of Beaconsfield, who died in December, 1919, leaving personal property valued at £2,616 to her two sons, John Neville McDonald, and Duncan McDonald. Mr. Kelly (instructed, by the curator of intestate estates) appeared to oppose the application.
    Mr. Walker said that before her death testatrix lived with her brother, Samuel Neville, a bachelor. One of her sons, John Neville McDonald, died in the Alfred Hospital in March, 1915. The other son, Duncan McDonald, went to live in America about 14 years ago. He communicated with his mother up to the time of her death. On January 8, 1920, Samuel Neville, who had since died, wrote to Duncan McDonald, informing him that his mother had died. The letter was returned unclaimed. Attempts to discover the whereabouts of the missing son by advertisements were unsuccessful. None of his relatives in Victoria had any knowledge of his whereabouts.
    After hearing argument Mr. Justice Weigall decided that the estate should be administered by the curator of intestate estates.13
