The first part is the restriction tcdt mentioned. This is what shows that the title is held by the proprietors as tenants in common.

Edited to add: TCDT - the OP is no expert. She finds this unclear.

As Administrator, you owe duties to the beneficiaries, and cannot simply permit your brother to take more than his entitlement. Otherwise, you may find that the ensuing court battle is against you.

Properly arranged, a tenancy in common will include a deed of trust which sets out the rights as between the co-owners. That deed will appear at the Land Registry _only_ as a ghost in the restriction you describe. That does not imply any ambiguity in the arrangement, only probably incomplete information.
