Guardians Are Usually of the Estate

If a guardian was appointed for your minor ancestor, the guardian usually was just to oversee the child's inheritance or estate. The minor's mother may very well have been alive and would probably have had physical custody of the child. Don't immediately conclude that the guardian of a child's estate was the person with whom the child lived. And do not assume because a child had a guardian appointed that their mother was deceased.
