    Default Laws regarding inheritance around 1817

    Hi, Iím wondering if anyone knows or knows where to look for information about what happened to money if there wasnít a will in England around 1817.
    Did it automatically go to the widow or eldest son?
    Was there an age requirement?
    There may not have been property involved and it was unlikely anything was entailed. However there may have been money or investments.

    No, it didn't automatically go to widows. They had to be specifically mentioned in a will. There's a summary on Wikipedia, in the introduction to the story about the 1882 Property ActHERE.
