025 – The Matter of The Estate of Thomas Henry Smith

A joint claim was made for and on behalf of the Estate of Thomas Henry Smith (“the Deceased”), formerly of Sinky Bay in Southampton Parish, to the Commission of Inquiry into the Historic Losses of Land (COI) by Ms. Pattie Jean Moore and Ms. Juanita Joanna Patrice Jones, cousins and descendants of the Deceased (together, “the Claimants”). The basis of the claim is that the Deceased did not have the capacity to sign his Will dated 31st August, 1955 , which is the subject of the claim and that a fraudulent act had been done by the Estate Executors, such fraudulent act resulting in certain members of the Claimants’ family being disinherited while other members with whom the Deceased did not have a close relationship benefitted from his estate.
