Notes for Katherine Pickering and R. W. Harling

Katherine was co-executor of her father's Last Will & Testament and inherited "one Ninth" of his estate. She was also present, with her husband at her father's funeral.

We can assume the family was gathered at Montebello in 1881 (see Census below) because of the death of Charles William Harrison Pickering in 1881. In the household there were also six servants: Cook, Housemaid, Waitress, Kitchenmaid, Nurse, and Groom.

Katherine was also executor of her brother, Eugene Haynes Pickering's Will 1895, Basset Hampshire, England along with Frederic North, Esq.

Spouse Notes: According to the distribution of the estate of Frederike Valentia Pickering [1859-1932], cash on account was paid to Coutts & Co. as Administratrix of R. W. Harling, deceased.
