Is this NI law by any chance?

If it was English law, I'd say yes, no problem.

Yes. It is in NI
In that case, I can't be sure. It is quite likely since there are real similarities between England/Wales and NI.

TY, Barmaid. I'll have a bottle of Chateau Thames Embankment left behind the bar at Pommeroys for you as a refresher. :-)
if you look at:
http://www.proni.gov.uk/index/search_the_archives/will_calendars/history_of_probate.htm

it looks as tho the history is exact (1858 reforms and so on)
I cant imagine the 1837 Wills Act doesnt apply as Ireland was within the UK at that time.

I was gonna say Lucky St V de P - he was the only one to found two orders but that was St Francis de Sales (Visitandines and Salesians)

sudduv kind of jinky - its late - bedtime
