James and Another v Allen and others: ChD 30 Jun 1817

The testator left a bequest in trust for such ‘benevolent purposes’ as the trustees might unanimously agree upon.
Held: The word ‘benevolent’ when coupled with another was not sufficient to restrict the trusts to charitable purposes and it failed.
