British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Muldrew v. Harris, 1987 CanLII 2878 (BC SC):

(In Pym v. Great Northern R. (1862), 2 B. & S. 759, 121 E.R. 1254, the deceased was the possessor of an entailed estate to which upon his death his son succeeded. Because the estate was the source of the husband’s income, an award was made to the widow and the children other than the eldest son but the eldest son got nothing because he got the entailed estate and, therefore, the whole of his father’s income.)
