William left his entire estate to Alice. However, it appeared at first that his estate held nothing of value. By 1925, it became clear that his shares in the Clifton Colliery Company were worth just over $3,000, so his estate went into probate. All of his other shares still had no value.

Leicestershire Historian, No. 39 (2003), page 5; https://www.le.ac.uk/lahs/downloads/lh2003.pdf:

Dear Editor,

Leicestershire Historian 2002

I was interested to notice a hidden connection between two of the articles in the current issue. The article on “Celebrating the Jubilee” mentions a memorial window at St. Catharine, Houghton-on-the-Hill (1897) on page 6. The dedication of this window is “To the Glory of God and to commemorate the sixtieth year of Queen Victoria’s reign, this window is dedicated by William Jesse Freer, Clerk of the Peace for the County, and Helen his wife, AD 1897”. Interestingly, this couple also feature in the article on a Former officer of this Society on page 25.

There is also a mural tablet in green marble and Hopton Wood marble in the church with the following inscription:

“In honoured memory of Major William Jesse Freer V.D. D.L. F.S.A. eldest son of Rev. Wm. T Freer Rector. For many years a valued servant as Clerk of the Peace and County Council and to the Lieutenancy of Leicestershire—President British Numismatic Society—Lay Canon of Leicester and a generous benefactor to the Diocese. Died 12th July 1932 in the 80th year of his age. Also of his wife Helen, daughter of William Goode Johnson Esq. of Nottingham & Vancouver. She died 23rd December 1948 in the 91st year of her age”.

It carries:

Arms: Sable, a chevron between three dolphins naiant embowed argent.

Crest: Out of a ducal coronet gules, an antelope’s head argent, attired or.

Motto: Aime ton Frere.

These were carved by Leicester Technical School students.

I hope that this is of interest.

Yours sincerely,

Dr K Oldham, Churchwarden, St. Catharine’s Church
