Probably not. I do not know how the Pybus estate was sold off, but I do know that various estates of "respectably working class" children of Jack the Ripper victims were sold, in total, to "used furniture and curiosities" dealers who would give a lump sum, save the good stuff for resale and dump the rest. Unless Barbara's beloved aunt thought to save the spoon, it likely went then.

Hi Jim/Mike,

chances are that the estate belonging to the Pybus grandparents was inherited by Barbara's aunt Margaret (Emily's sister) as she was the last of the Pybus children living in the Darlington area at the time, and there is no recorded probate for either grandparent.
The spoon maybe still be held within an extended family somewhere as there are still a lot of Pybus's in the Darlington area, whether they realise the significance of the spoon is another matter,

Cliff
