      Nellie was left a substantial holding in Frank Smythson Ltd when both Frank & Ralph died.
      Ralph & Nellie had no children.

      She had the large portrait, which her solicitor passed on to Gran Heather/Avril.
      Letter from Nellie's solicitor quotes her will, "...and the oil painting of my husband's grandfather....." i.e. Marcus Alfred Smythson.
      However, Ralph's father's will (William Benjamin Smythson) says the portrait in oils is of his grandfather ie. Benjamin Christian Smythson (or conceivably John Sallway his other grandfather, but as John was a carver & gilder and Benjamin an actor, theatre owner and general larger than life character, the odds are in favour of the picture being of Benjamin).
