Lord Dudley against Lord Warde

See In re De Falbe, [1901] 1 Ch. 530, 540.

[113] Case 55.-Lord dudley against Lord warde. October 24, 1751. [See In re De Falbe, [1901] 1 Ch. 530., 540.] Tenant for life, or in tail, erects a fire engine to work a colliery. It shall on his death be considered as part of his personal estate, and not go with the estate to remainderman. [Lib. Eeg. 1751, B. fo. 659 b. [S. C. Harg. MSS. Capper, A. 2, p. 68; Hill. MSS. 26 Vol. p. 264, from Mr. Ford's MSS.] William Lord Dudley died, seised of a colliery, on which were erected four fire engines, three of which had been erected by Earl Edward his father, who was tenant in tail of the estate (which came to Earl William under a settlement), and the fourth was erected by Earl William; but it did not appear whether Earl William was tenant for life or tenant in tail of the estate.

Second question is, as to three of the fire engines not erected by Earl William, but by Earl Edward, whether they will follow the same rule as those erected by the last tenant, Earl William 1 To first. There have been many questions of this kind, both in law and equity, and some determinations on very nice and almost frivolous circumstances ', but some general rules are very clear, as what is annexed to the freehold is to be considered as part of it, and yet there are some exceptions to that rule, as between landlord and tenant; what is erected by the latter for the sake of trade may be removed, though fixed to the freehold ; (1) indeed such removal must be during the term, or he will be a trespasser; so marble chimney-pieces, &c.: (2) but this does not hold between the heir and executor; (3) so might these engines be removed as between landlord and tenant. [114] And though the case between landlord and tenant does not hold so strongly throughout, yet it answers one objection ; viz. That a house has been built to which...
