In English probate practice, notation is the act of making a memo- randum of some special circumstance on a probate or letters of administration. Thus, where a grant is made for the whole personal estate of tbe deceased within the United Kingdom, which can only be done in the case of a person dying domiciled in England, the fact of his having been so domiciled is noted on the grant.
