Interesting mention of the Chancery court as I believe that's where disputed estates were contested.
Last time I looked the records for the relevant period had not been digitized.
Still, it's worth asking the question. Who administered the Druitt estate after his mother's committal?
I have thus wrenched the thread off course and contend the timing of his death to be suspicious.
His mother is committed in July and he's dead four months later?
