Copied from "The London Illustrated News"
of Dec 5'' 1868

"The will of the Hon. Hatley Frere, formerly one of
the Judges of his Majesty's High Court of Judication
at Madras, but late of Harrow, Middlesex, and
since of 28 Cambridge-terrace, Hyde Park, where
he died on 3rd Ult., was proved in the London
Court on the 18th. of the same month, and the
personalty in this Country sworn under £25,00.-

The executors appointed are his brothers
Charles Frere, Esqr., and the Rev. John
Alexander Frere, M.A.

The will is dated Nov. 20, 1866. He leaves
The Estates to his wife an immediate legacy
of £500 and a life interest in his property, real
and personal, and, after her decease, he leaves
the Estate to his Children."


Where in Petersburg I've this year (1868)
I saw in the Library (of which brother
Warner is Librarian) in Burke's
Landed gentry of England,
the genealogy of the Frere
family, which corresponded with
about the number & sex of
the children & some of the names referred to in
Mrs Frere's letter to Grand
Mother. These Freres though
very distant are I believe nevertheless
our relatives,
A. G. B.

Copy of Will of
Hon Hatley Frere.
who died on 3rd Nov-1868
at 28 Cambridge=terrace,
Hyde Park.
London, England.

I believe that this must have been
a son or grandson of Lady Jane Frere
of Gould Square London, who wrote in
1795 or 99 to Grand Mother Baylor
at New Market. The original letter
was in the possession of the Clayton
family & of which letter I took
several copies.
A. G. Baylor.
