Hundreds of Irish heirs to unclaimed British inheritance - Treasury list shows estates worth millions
Could you stand to inherit millions? 2,000 Irish per year die without a will in Britain
Birchwood explained, “Mr Jones’ mother was from Co. Cork.
“Hers was a large family, descended from John Holland, headmaster of the Ballinaspittle National School. It took us a long time to find the Holland family. The Jones side was a lot easier, but after research in Ireland, Scotland, Canada, the US and South America we managed to find them all.”
He continued, “A large percentage died unmarried, joined religious orders or just did not have children. This estate was worth about £170,000 and has now been distributed to all of the heirs.”
Bona Vacantia reports that every years 12,000 people died in Britain without a will.
