Custodial history:
Thomas Hassall died on 14 Nov 1898 in Ballarat, Australia. His will was straightforward in the first instance, leaving his cottage to his neice Louisa Haslem for her life time and then passing to her son Thomas Richard Haslem. Thomas Richard inherited other property and stocks and shares for his use during his life time. To his own son, also called Thomas, he left only a small annuity of £150. Complications arose in the Second part of the will when he directed that the remainder of his income should be divided equally between the children of his half brothers and sisters Joseph, Samuel, Sophy, Jane Knowels, Ann Barnett; to his half brother Joseph himself and to Thomas, only, of his half-brother Williams's family. The papers contained in this collection represent the Manchester side of the familys' attempt to claim their inheritance. The trust set up by the will was not wound up until 1962.
