Fletcher et al v Dominam Sedley et al: 6 Mar 1704

A makes a bill of sale of his goods to a trustee, for one who lived with him as his wile, and so reputed. Bill of sale set aside as fraudulent against creditors. A purchases a lease of a house in the name of B., and takes a declaration of trust to permit A. to enjoy for life, and then in trust for one who lived with him as his wife, and was so reputed. This lease is not assets of A. nor liable to his creditors after his death ; for when a man purchases, he may settle the estate as he pleases.
