many thanks, Roslyn Hudson Australia
We have found a cutting in a Melbourne newspaper, It is from the Equity office and it says that “in July 1886 probate of the will of George Hudson was granted for Two Hundred and Fifty four pound”. So this finally gives us a bit of an idea of his financial status when he passed away in December 1885

Looking at Freebmd for George Hudson
George is closest as
