Kelson v Kelson: 13 Jan 1853

The statement in a deed of settlement, executed after marriage, was that it was made in consideration of 5s., and divers other good and valuable considerations. Held, that this statement did not, as against strangers to the settlement, amount to evidence that it was not voluntary; and a Defendant claiming against it as a purchaser for valuable consideration, and insisting at the Bar that the settlement was fraudulent and void under the stat. 27 Eliz. c. 4, the Court directed an inquiry whether the settlement was founded on any and what valuable Consideration.
