2 VEEN. 508. CAVE V. CAVE 925 [508] Case 457.-cave domina versus cave bart. [Not followed, Bech v. Rebow, 1706, 1 P. Wins. 94. Referred to, Norton v. Dashwood, [1896] 2 Ch. 501; In re De Falbe, Ward v. Taylor, [1901] 1 Oh. 528.] June 26, [1705].. [1] Eq. Ca. Ab. 268, pi. 6. A. devises 4000 to his son, to be paid at his age of twenty-five, and interest in the mean time, and he to have a maintenance thereout; and directs the 4000 to be raised out of a trust-estate. The son dies under twenty-five. This is a vested legacy, and shall go to his executors. Vol. 1, Case 201. Pictures and glasses put up instead of wainscot, or where wainscot would otherwise have been put, shall go to the heir, and not the executor. 4 Co. 64 a. Sir Roger Cave by his will devised four thousand pounds to his son Charles, to be paid him at his -age of twenty-five, and interest in the mean time (at 5 per Cent, per aim. from his the testator's death, R.

And a question arising whether some pictures and glasses belonged to the heir or to the executor : the Lord Keeper was of opinion, that although pictures and glasses generally speaking, are part of the personal estate; yet if put up instead of wainscot, or where otherwise wainscot would have been put, they shall go to the heir. The house ought not to come to the heir maimed and disfigured. Herlackenden's case [1589, 4 Rep. 62 a, 64 a], wainscot put up with screws, shall remain with the freehold.(S) (1) Not diminishing the 4000.-And if his son Charles should die before his said portion became due, his the said testator's will was, that the said 4000 should be equally distributed amongst the rest of the testator's younger children by both marriages as therein mentioned, R. L. (2) The defendant the heir admitted that the 4000 ought...
