    Probate 4 Feb 1892  London, EnglandFind all individuals with events at this location 
    • Annie Wooster received the income from £20,000 (with a guaranteed interest of 4%) until her marriage or death. The same sum was held in trust for each of her 2 children, Frederick and Frank. To raise the necessary capital to fund these bequests, the trustees (Daughters Florence and Elinor) were instructed to sell from the estate whatever was required. This resulted in the sale of 49, Prince's Gate, including all of it's art and furnishings.

    Seperation 1879 
    • After a difficult period, Frederick and Frances seperated. Prior to their seperation, Frances and the artist, JM Whistler, were seen out together. As a result, Frederick had written on more than one occasion to Whistler suggesting that he should stay away from his wife and family. In a letter dated 17 July 1877, Frederick writes ..... "I am told that on Friday last you were seen walking about with my wife at Lord's Cricket Ground. After my previous letter to you on the subject, it is clear that I cannot expect from you the ordinary conduct of a Gentleman; and I therefore now tell you that if after this intimation I find you in her society again, I will publicly horsewhip you."
