[William Bulkeley Hughes]

The will of the late William Bulkeley Hughes, Esq., M.P., Plâs Côch, Anglesey (of which incorrect abstracts have appeared), has been proved in the district court, Bangor, the personalty being sworn under 17,000. He leaves his mansion house and demesne lands to his widow for her life, with an annuity of 500. The estates are under trust for twenty-one years, or until such time as certain mortgage debts are paid, when the whole property reverts to his daughter, Mrs. Hunter, and after her decease to her heirs male and female. Sir Llewelyn Turner is the only surviving trustee, and Mrs. Hunter has the sole appointment of other trustees. He leaves the lease of his house, 17, St. George's-square, London, with the furniture of the said house, to his daughter absolutely, and 500 a year in addition to property settled upon her under marriage settlement by him. A legacy of 500 is left to the widow of his nephew, Captain George Hughes; and 100 to William Hughes, late butler; and 10 each to two labourers.
