      was made subject to a Court of Protection order 
      • The Public Trustee was appointed Receiver in relation to Bud's affairs. Bud had been examined in July 1984 by Dr. Maria Greenwood, a consultant psychiatrist, probably at the request of his sister Bettina Lilley. Buid refused Dr. Greenwood's suggestion that he sign an Enduring Power of Attorney. It would seem from Dr. Greenwood's correspondence that she supported an application to the Court of Protection by Barclays Bank.

      • The administration of Bud's estate turned out to rival the fictitious case of Jarndyce v Jarndyce. The story deserves a book in its own right but a brief summary is as follows.
        On his death, it turned out that Bud's estate was worth well over £1 million. During his life he had acquired quite valuable objets d'art including snuff boxes and jewellery. He also had cash in Nassavian (Bahamas) and London bank accounts.

        On his death he was also still the legal owner of the Guana Cay island off Nassau, Bahamas.However in the mid-eighties he had entered into a contract to sell the island for $40,000 but later repudiated the contract. The purchasers had paid a deposit which was never returned. The purchasers registered a lien over the property but never took any steps to enforce the contract of purchase.

        [See further: S. J. Farmiloe papers]

        Bud had made a will in Nassau on 13 June 1988 whereby he left the residue of his estate to his all his brothers and sisters of the children of those siblings who had predeceased him on his death. However, Bud had a bad fall on the island some time later. As a result he suffered some brain damage and was sufficiently ill that his sister Bettina Lilley insisted that arrangements be made for him to return to London where he owned a flat in Egerton Gardens.
        Bud became progressively more unable to look after himself and unfortunately came to live in conditions of squalor. At some point, Bud's partner of many years, Hugh Kerrigan, died and that may have contributed to Bud's decline. Bud was befriended by one John McKey Norton who claimed to be a Colonel in a Guards Regiment but it later transpired was a Captain in the Pay Corps. It seems that Bettina was unable or unwilling to arrange for Bud to be cared for and at some point in the later 90s, Norton arranged for Bud to move into a residential care home in Northampton where he lived the rest of his life.
        Bud made a will on 4 July 1994 at Barclays Bank in Park Lane by which he appointed Norton and Barclays Bank as executors. This will left the residue of his estate to such of his brothers and sisters as survived him at the date of his death. The effect of this will was to cut out from a share of the estate the children of those siblings of Bud who had predeceased him

        A family dispute arose over Bud's will. For a brief summary, see the Deed dated 10 February 2000 by which the matter was settled. However, the administration of his estate was fraught with difficulties, litigation and delays.
