Staniforth v Lyall And Others: 27 Nov 1830

Defendants chartered a ship to New Zealand, where they were to load her, or by an agent there to give Plaintiff, the owner, notice that they abandoned the adventure; in which case they were to pay him 5001. The ship went to New Zealand, but found neither agent nor cargo there, and the captain made a circuitous voyage home, by way of Batavia. This voyage, after making every allowance for increased expense and loss of time, was more profitable than the original adventure to New Zealand would have been. Plaintiff having sued Defendant on the charterparty for breach of covenant, held, that he could not recover the 5001. penalty in addition to the profit of the homeward voyage.
