Description

Excerpt from The Revised Reports, Vol. 23: Being a Republication of Such Cases in the English Court of Common Law and Equity, From the Year 1785, as Are Still of Practical Utility; 1821-1822 IN the Chancery part of this volume we have two leading cases on the custody of children, Lyons v. Elm/tin, p. 38, and Shelley v. Westbrooke, p. 47. The latter case has often been misapprehended in popular writings. Lord Eldon did not deprive Shelley of the custody of his chil dren merely because he held unorthodox opinions, but because the manner in which he put his opinions in practice made it clear to the mind of the Court that it would be prejudicial to the children's interests if they were brought up by him. To that extent, and to that extent only, the decision is of authority and has been followed. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
