Cum Testamento Annexo

named

[Latin, With the will annexed.] A phrase that describes an administrator named by a probate or surrogate court to settle and distribute an estate according to the terms of a will in which the testator, its maker, has failed to name an executor, or in which the one named refuses to act or is legally incapable of acting.

The term is often applied to the administration conducted by such a person.
