28th: The rich Andrews relations

A surprise contact a couple of days ago from Eileen has resulted in several updates to the extended ANDREWS tree (which will appear in my World Connect db LornaHenderson in due course).

She is a descendant of Luke, son of John & Tabitha (HUNT) ANDREWS.
I'd never progressed to bringing her particular line right down to present day as I'd hit a stumbling block at Luke's son Hubert, although I had found son Cuthbert heading for Brazil in the 1920s, and prior family information had said he died in Madiera.

With her information, and a bit more digging, the family has now been better documented, including some of the now more readily available information.
Luke apparently made his money as a cheesemaker in London, and returned to his home town to live at Carlton House - which is now a listed building.

The probate index shows his 1916 estate was worth over L2,800, hence the "rich relations" comment.
