English Wills - a general question

A couple of times in English wills around 1800 I have come acrosss people who have left family members "one shilling" when other relatives have been left hundreds of pounds or at least a guinea.

Qustion: is a bequest of one shilling likely to be a snub or form of insult?

Thanks
