suit No. 23
Between:
Jinks Ersrein Watrer
by his next friend

Marietra WALTER Plaintiff
and
Tora Bryanr alas Basy Bryant Dejendant.
JUDGMENT.

In 1940 Charles Humphry Este was the owner of certain lands at Villa in the Island of
Antigua. He was at all material times absent from the island and had given a power of attorney to
one Sate Alexander Henry to sell land on his behalf. On 28th April, 1940, Henry received from
one Reginald Thomas a sum of thirty-two pounds for the sale of a portion’ of the land at Villa,
A receipt was made out, but no conveyance was executed, [t is not denied that Reginald Thomas paid
the above consideration on bebalf of one Tola Bryant. Henry pointed out to her the portion of land.
She experienced difficulty in getting permission for the erection of a house on it. This permission was
eventually obtained in 1948; as from then she was able to rent the land to a tenant named Stevens who
occupied a house erected on it.

2, On the 9th M: ay, 1944, Henry sold a portion of land at Villa to one Jinks Hinstein
Walter for a consideration of £12 10. ‘This time a deed was executed, Jinks Walter was an infant;
his father was a party to the deed. Tt is admitted that the land conveyed by the deed formed a portion
of the land sold to [ola Bryant i in 1940,

3. Jinks Walter’s father was shown the land conveyed to his son by the deed, but nothing
was done by him to indicate physical possession. He died in 1948 and 1950 his widow Marictta
observed that a dwelling-house had been erected on the portion of land which had been conveyed to
Jinks in 1944. She spoke to Iola Bryant about it and they both went to Este’s Attorney, S. A. Henry.
Henry says that he suggested to Mrs. Walter that she should allow Iola Bryant to occupy the portion;
and that he offered her another portion of land in lieu of that which had been conveyed by the deed.
Nothing came of this suggestion.

4, 5S. A. Henry’s account of the transactions was as Palin About 3 or 4 years before the
conveyance to Jinks Walter he sold a portion of land to one Edmund Williams, for which he was paid
£11 or £12. He put Williams in possession by showing him the land. Shortly after that he sold
to Iola Bryant for £32 a portion of land twice the size of that which he had sold to Williams, and he then
gave her the receipt which has been produced. He admits that he signed the deed conveying land to
Jinks Walter, but says that it was not he but Williams, who sold to Walter. He says Williams com-
plained that Tola Bryant was occupying the portion sold to him and that then Williams agreed to accept
another portion of land in its place.

5. Williams’ account is at variance with this. He says he bought land from 8. A. Henry
for £12 10. He was given a receipt, he says he gave this to Norris Walter, Jinks’ father. He was
not shown any particular land,“ hé was simply told it was west of the road and at the back of Iola
Bryant’ s land. He never sold to Jinks Walter; he knows nothing about the deed; and he is still in
possession of the land sold him by 8. A. Henry. His land is not part of the land sold to lola Bryant.

6. The evidence of S. A. Henry and of Williams must be regarded as unreliable. ‘This,
fortunately, 1s not of importance; the documentar y evidence shows that lola Bryant bought land from
S. A. Henry in 1940; and that in 1944. S$. A. Henry conveyed by deed a portion of this same land to
Jinks Walter, Jinks ae alter in this suit claims from [ola Bryant possession of the portion conveyed to
him by deed.

' 7. Mr. Christian, for the defendant, took objection to the absence of any description of the
land claimed from the particulars of claim. He urged that the defendant had an equitable title and
that the plaintiff was affected with notice of this title at the date of the deed. The defendant had
paid the price of the land and was put in possession.’ She could not therefore be said to be wrongfully
in possession. Mr. Christian referred me to Vol. 13 of the Encyclopedia of Court forms P. 489, and
to Vol. 27, Halsbury’s Laws of England, (2nd Ed.), Ps. 807, 808.

8. Mr. Rowan Henry for the Plaintiff urged that, there being a specific deed referred to in
the particulars of claim, which deed’set out the description of the land claimed, there was no necessity
to insert the said description i in the particulars of claim. He said that both parties were unaware of
each others interest and that no question of notice arose.

9. I agree with Mr. Rowan Henry that the absence of any description of the land from the
particulars canuot affect the plaintiff’s claim. As. regards the other questions raised, sec. 9 of the Real
Property Act (Cap. 96) provides that a conveyance vests in the person to whom land is conveyed the
whole legal and equitable estate therein. The evidence discloses that, in this case, although the defend-
ant was shown the land in 1940, there was nothing to indicate that any person was in possession until



54 THE LEEWARD ISLANDS GAZETTE. [6 Mareh, 1952.

about the year 1948; in which year the defendant set about the placing of a tenant with a dwelling on
the land. In 1944, when the land was conveyed to the plaintiff by deed, there was not a single circum-
stance which could notify him or his father that the defendant hed an equitable interest. S. A. Henry
had entered into the usual covenants of right to convey and freedom from incumbrances. There was
furthermore no evidence of the existence of anything ‘which put the plaintiff or his father on inquiry.
In Wave v. Lord Egmont, 4 D.M. and G. 460, Lord Cranworth said:
‘Where he has not actual notice, he ought not to be treated as if he bad notice, unless the
‘“ circumstances are such as enable the Court to say, not only that he might have acquired, but
‘also that he ought to"have acquired, the notice with which it is sought to affeet him—that
“he would have acquired it but for his gross negligence in the conduct of the business in
“question.” :
There was here nothing to show that the plaintiff’s father was negligent; the land was empty
and uncultivated; S. A. Henry said he had forgotten that he had previously contracted to sell it to the
defendant. The plaintiff's father had no notice, actual or constructive; and the whole estate, legal and
equitable, vested in the plaintiff.

10. ‘There will be an order that the plaintiff be put in possession of the land as described in
the deed, and that the defendant do pay him the costs of the suit, agreed on at £5 11. 6.

Suit No. 25
Between:—
WaRNEFORD EMANUEL Plaintiff
and
Morrny Emanurn Defendant. -
JUDGMENT.
At the time of her death in 1937 one Maria Francis was the owner of Lot No. 52 in the
Picadilly Land Settlement. She left one son Josuua (also known as Daseyr), and in 1949 JosHua sold
the lot to the defendant. The defendant took possesion of the lot on the 14th August 1950. The
Plaintiff made an ineffectual attempt to restrain him, and-now sues him for damages for unlawful entry.
The plaintiff's claim was based on the following facts. When Marra Francis died in 1937 her
son Josuua took him to a land officer and arranged that the plaintiff should be allowed to take posession
of the lot. Josuua said the plaintiff paid him rent; but there was no proof of this other than his bare
statement and I do not believe him: The plaintiff believed that the result of his arrangement with
JosHua was that he became a tenant, not of Josuua, but of the Government, and there was evidence that,
acting on this assumption, he paid rent for the lot on at least one occasion in 1950 to the Government.
Neither the receipt of rent by the Government or the belief of the plaintiff can alter the legal
position. No question of. limitation has-been raised; and no objection has been made on the ground that
Josuua did not take out letters of administration to his mother’s estate. There was an agreement by
Josuua that he should allow the plaintiff the use of the lands; but there was no consideration for it.
The result is that the defendant cannot be regarded either.as a trespasser or responsible for breach of
contract. There will be judgment for the defendant with costs £7. 15. 6

Between:

by his next friend

Marietra WALTER Plaintiff
and
Tora Bryanr alas Basy Bryant Dejendant.
JUDGMENT.

In 1940 Charles Humphry Este was the owner of certain lands at Villa in the Island of
Antigua. He was at all material times absent from the island and had given a power of attorney to
one Sate Alexander Henry to sell land on his behalf. On 28th April, 1940, Henry received from
one Reginald Thomas a sum of thirty-two pounds for the sale of a portion’ of the land at Villa,
A receipt was made out, but no conveyance was executed, [t is not denied that Reginald Thomas paid
the above consideration on bebalf of one Tola Bryant. Henry pointed out to her the portion of land.
She experienced difficulty in getting permission for the erection of a house on it. This permission was
eventually obtained in 1948; as from then she was able to rent the land to a tenant named Stevens who
occupied a house erected on it.

2, On the 9th M: ay, 1944, Henry sold a portion of land at Villa to one Jinks Hinstein
Walter for a consideration of £12 10. ‘This time a deed was executed, Jinks Walter was an infant;
his father was a party to the deed. Tt is admitted that the land conveyed by the deed formed a portion
of the land sold to [ola Bryant i in 1940,

3. Jinks Walter’s father was shown the land conveyed to his son by the deed, but nothing
was done by him to indicate physical possession. He died in 1948 and 1950 his widow Marictta
observed that a dwelling-house had been erected on the portion of land which had been conveyed to
Jinks in 1944. She spoke to Iola Bryant about it and they both went to Este’s Attorney, S. A. Henry.
Henry says that he suggested to Mrs. Walter that she should allow Iola Bryant to occupy the portion;
and that he offered her another portion of land in lieu of that which had been conveyed by the deed.
Nothing came of this suggestion.

4, 5S. A. Henry’s account of the transactions was as Palin About 3 or 4 years before the
conveyance to Jinks Walter he sold a portion of land to one Edmund Williams, for which he was paid
£11 or £12. He put Williams in possession by showing him the land. Shortly after that he sold
to Iola Bryant for £32 a portion of land twice the size of that which he had sold to Williams, and he then
gave her the receipt which has been produced. He admits that he signed the deed conveying land to
Jinks Walter, but says that it was not he but Williams, who sold to Walter. He says Williams com-
plained that Tola Bryant was occupying the portion sold to him and that then Williams agreed to accept
another portion of land in its place.

5. Williams’ account is at variance with this. He says he bought land from 8. A. Henry
for £12 10. He was given a receipt, he says he gave this to Norris Walter, Jinks’ father. He was
not shown any particular land,“ hé was simply told it was west of the road and at the back of Iola
Bryant’ s land. He never sold to Jinks Walter; he knows nothing about the deed; and he is still in
possession of the land sold him by 8. A. Henry. His land is not part of the land sold to lola Bryant.

6. The evidence of S. A. Henry and of Williams must be regarded as unreliable. ‘This,
fortunately, 1s not of importance; the documentar y evidence shows that lola Bryant bought land from
S. A. Henry in 1940; and that in 1944. S$. A. Henry conveyed by deed a portion of this same land to
Jinks Walter, Jinks ae alter in this suit claims from [ola Bryant possession of the portion conveyed to
him by deed.

' 7. Mr. Christian, for the defendant, took objection to the absence of any description of the
land claimed from the particulars of claim. He urged that the defendant had an equitable title and
that the plaintiff was affected with notice of this title at the date of the deed. The defendant had
paid the price of the land and was put in possession.’ She could not therefore be said to be wrongfully
in possession. Mr. Christian referred me to Vol. 13 of the Encyclopedia of Court forms P. 489, and
to Vol. 27, Halsbury’s Laws of England, (2nd Ed.), Ps. 807, 808.

8. Mr. Rowan Henry for the Plaintiff urged that, there being a specific deed referred to in
the particulars of claim, which deed’set out the description of the land claimed, there was no necessity
to insert the said description i in the particulars of claim. He said that both parties were unaware of
each others interest and that no question of notice arose.

9. I agree with Mr. Rowan Henry that the absence of any description of the land from the
particulars canuot affect the plaintiff’s claim. As. regards the other questions raised, sec. 9 of the Real
Property Act (Cap. 96) provides that a conveyance vests in the person to whom land is conveyed the
whole legal and equitable estate therein. The evidence discloses that, in this case, although the defend-
ant was shown the land in 1940, there was nothing to indicate that any person was in possession until
54 THE LEEWARD ISLANDS GAZETTE. [6 Mareh, 1952.

about the year 1948; in which year the defendant set about the placing of a tenant with a dwelling on
the land. In 1944, when the land was conveyed to the plaintiff by deed, there was not a single circum-
stance which could notify him or his father that the defendant hed an equitable interest. S. A. Henry
had entered into the usual covenants of right to convey and freedom from incumbrances. There was
furthermore no evidence of the existence of anything ‘which put the plaintiff or his father on inquiry.
In Wave v. Lord Egmont, 4 D.M. and G. 460, Lord Cranworth said:
‘Where he has not actual notice, he ought not to be treated as if he bad notice, unless the
‘“ circumstances are such as enable the Court to say, not only that he might have acquired, but
‘also that he ought to"have acquired, the notice with which it is sought to affeet him—that
“he would have acquired it but for his gross negligence in the conduct of the business in
“question.” :
There was here nothing to show that the plaintiff’s father was negligent; the land was empty
and uncultivated; S. A. Henry said he had forgotten that he had previously contracted to sell it to the
defendant. The plaintiff's father had no notice, actual or constructive; and the whole estate, legal and
equitable, vested in the plaintiff.

10. ‘There will be an order that the plaintiff be put in possession of the land as described in
the deed, and that the defendant do pay him the costs of the suit, agreed on at £5 11. 6.

Suit No. 25
Between:—
WaRNEFORD EMANUEL Plaintiff
and
Morrny Emanurn Defendant. -
JUDGMENT.
At the time of her death in 1937 one Maria Francis was the owner of Lot No. 52 in the
Picadilly Land Settlement. She left one son Josuua (also known as Daseyr), and in 1949 JosHua sold
the lot to the defendant. The defendant took possesion of the lot on the 14th August 1950. The
Plaintiff made an ineffectual attempt to restrain him, and-now sues him for damages for unlawful entry.
The plaintiff's claim was based on the following facts. When Marra Francis died in 1937 her
son Josuua took him to a land officer and arranged that the plaintiff should be allowed to take posession
of the lot. Josuua said the plaintiff paid him rent; but there was no proof of this other than his bare
statement and I do not believe him: The plaintiff believed that the result of his arrangement with
JosHua was that he became a tenant, not of Josuua, but of the Government, and there was evidence that,
acting on this assumption, he paid rent for the lot on at least one occasion in 1950 to the Government.
Neither the receipt of rent by the Government or the belief of the plaintiff can alter the legal
position. No question of. limitation has-been raised; and no objection has been made on the ground that
Josuua did not take out letters of administration to his mother’s estate. There was an agreement by
Josuua that he should allow the plaintiff the use of the lands; but there was no consideration for it.
The result is that the defendant cannot be regarded either.as a trespasser or responsible for breach of
contract. There will be judgment for the defendant with costs £7. 15. 6

4. . In no case was the amount deposited by an unsuccessful candidate forfeited to the Crown

5. There was one complaint imputing partiality to an officer but on investigation it was
discovered that the complaint was entirely groundless.

6. The voting was conducted in an orderly manner. At the Plymouth Polling Station
there was evidence that the number of voters was more than the Election Officers could conveniently cope
with. Steps were taken within the provisions of the Ordinance to ensure that all persons desiring to
vote were enabled to do so with the result that at that polling station the voting was not completed
until 6.30 p.m. No incidents have been reported by the Police..

I have the honour to be,
Sir,
Your obedient servant,

Raypatt H. Lockuart,
Supervisor of Elections.
His Honour the Commissioner,
