Bulson – Heir Hunters, Series 9 Episode 13 of 20

The Case of Brian Bulson

What’s in a name? Case manager Amy Moyes had her work cut out for her when it came to the case of retired car mechanic Brian Bulson, who died without leaving a will. An only child, Brian had lived in Westcliffe-on-Sea, but he had originally come from Wales.

Welsh surnames can be problematic, as certain names are very common – Jones, Davies, Edwards and Williams – and Brian’s mother’s maiden name had been Edwards, meaning that Amy had to order lots of birth certificates to find the right Lily Edwards. She eventually found Lily through using the 1911 census information, and discovered that she had been one of 10 children. Amy’s work uncovered a sad story, as the children had been fostered out and Brian’s surviving relatives had very little knowledge of their family history as a result.

Amy’s hard work uncovered a total of 16 heirs to Brian’s estate, two of whom included the grandchildren of Brian’s mum’s sister – Amanda Miller and her brother Mark Kelly. The two of them had never met Brian, but both expressed gratitude to their unknown benefactor.
