Date the wills were proved

Hi, I was wondering if I could ask for some advice please regarding the date that wills were proved? I am a little fearful that this question will sound silly, but I was just wondering if the date that an old will was proved is an indication of the date that the person passed away? Were the wills usually proved immediately after the person died? Thank you very much in advance.

Brickwall for Charles Lester Ivings - Early 1800s

Hi,

I'm tracing the origins of my middle name Lester. I've got as far back as a man called Charles Lester Ivings, born around 1810, baptised 1811 (maybe). I believe one of his parents to be a Lester by surname but I'm hitting problems with records not quite matching and I'm not sure if my leaps of faith are too big.

In 1835 through his marriage record and through later census's (except 1841) I can ...

In 1889 my paternal grandfather Michael Henry Nathan (1860-1936) married, outside the Jewish faith, Ellen Mary Bossley (1867-1951).
