The grandfather, who felt "insulted" because his granddaughters did not visit him often enough, left them only 50 pounds each of his fortune of 500,000 pounds. SSPDaily tells about it.

This was reported by the Daily Star.

Frederick Ward Sr. died in 2020 and divided almost his entire fortune between his children, Terry Ward and Susan Wiltshire. However, the five adult children of his late son Fred Jr. received only 50 pounds each, which led to a family dispute.

Frederick, a former soldier, was 91 years old at the time of his death. He told his lawyers that he was upset that his son Fred's children did not visit him in the hospital when he was ill with lung disease three times. He was close with his son Terry and daughter Susan, who was his full-time caregiver.

The man had previously made a will, according to which his property, including a penthouse worth £450,000, was divided among his three children. However, Fred Jr. died before his father, in 2015, and the family split up.

When Terry read out his father's will after his death, it sparked a heated debate as the five granddaughters were left with nothing. Out of a fortune estimated to be around £500,000, their uncle Terry gave them envelopes, each containing £50 in cash.

After that, Carol, Angela, Amanda, Christine, and Janet filed a lawsuit. They argued that they should receive one-third of their late father's share of their grandfather's money. But the judge disagreed.

The women argued that their uncle Terry and aunt Susan had unfairly influenced their grandfather to change his will and give them a share of his estate belonging to the five sisters. But their case was dismissed by High Court judge James Brightwell, who said it was "perfectly reasonable" for the frustrated grandfather to exclude his granddaughters because of their "very limited contact" with him in his later years.

He stated that "the evidence does not even come close to convincing him" that Terry "coerced" his father or that Susan "controlled" him in a way that would call into question his will.

The judge also rejected the claim that Ward did not have the "capacity" to make the 2018 will or that it was invalid due to a "lack of knowledge and approval" of its implications.
