How many Wiganers were told that it belonged them personally. I was always told that a "will" went missing and that if it was found I would inherit, a late uncle always paid into a fund to prove it. Seem to remember a lot of other folk laying claim to the same

Remember one fellow claiming to have distant 'connections' to the familiy. He seemed to feel cheated.

Anyroad, as is seen in Mac's second link, and contrary to what a lot of folk believe; the place wasn't given.
