Thanks for all the replies.
I think that I must geta copy of the will to see if that throws any light on the story.

Subject: [Dyfed] Wills / Probate
Almost all of my family's 20th century wills were proved within a matter of months of
the death and in the locality of that death. However, there is one clear exception to this
and I wondered whether or not the list could make any suggestions as to why this might be
Date of probate grant - 3 Nov 1891
"The Will of James Gambold late of Stephens Ford in the County of Pembroke Farmer wo
died 6 August 1890 at Stephens Ford was proved in the Principal Registry by John Gambold
of Stephens Ford Farmer the son the sole Executor". - Value £78
So the will of James a farmer near Haverfordwest was proved in London ..
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
