  • A court case regarding disputed property in England was held in Cape of Good Hope Supreme Court in 1897. The following is a transcript from the Supreme Court

    CHIVELL V. CARLYON.

    Marriage — Community —Domicile — Immovable property.

    Questions submitted by the High Court of England for the opinion of the Supreme Court

    1. Assuming that two spouses were domiciled in this Colony at the time of their marriage here, and remained so domiciled her during their joint lives, would certain immovable property in England purchased by the husband during the subsistence of the marriage fall within the community of property created by the marriage?

    2. Assuming that the spouses were so domiciles at the time of their marriage, but subsequently changed their domicile to an English domicile before the purchase of te immovable property, but during their joint lives, would such change of domicile have any effect upon their respective rights in raged to the said property?

    HELD, that the first question must be answered in the affirmative and the second in the negative.

    This was a case stated for the opinion of the
    Supreme Court by the direction of his lordship
    Mr. Justice Stirling, Chancery Division, High
    Court of Justice, England. The facts of the
    case were: On August 3, 1887, William Chivell
    then a widower, married Caroline Dorothea
    Dickson, then a widow, at Kimberley. No ante-
    nuptial contract was executed. Mr. W. Chivell,
    at the time, had one son (a defendant in the
    present action), William Richard Chivell, born
    during the previous marriage in England : his
    wife had had three children (defendants in the
    present action) by her first marriage, who were
    born in the Cape Colony. On February 10, 1888,
    Mr. and Mrs. Chivell made a joint will at the
    Cape of Good Hope, appointing the survivor
    and children of the prior and existing marriages
    to be sole and universal heirs, with a life usufruct
    in favour of the wife. There were three children
    (plaintiffs in the present action) issue of the
    marriage between the testators. The testators
    proceeded to England (which was Mr. Chivell 's
    domicile of birth), and during their joint lives
    acquired immovable properties there in the
    name of Mr. W. Chivell, to whom it was con-
    veyed. Mr. Chivell survived his wife and re-

    (missing)


    the question at issue was settled by the procla-
    mation of 12th Ju]y, 1822, added that " the
    great body of civil lawyers agree with Voet in
    upholding the ubiquity of the matrimonial
    domicile by virtue of the tacit contract which
    is everywhere of legal obligation." In the subsequent case of Black v. Black's Executors (8 Juts, 200)^parties (3
    Juta, 200), parties who had been married in
    Scotland changed their domicile and came to
    reside at the Gape, and the question arose as to
    the rights of the wife and of her heirs ab
    hites'ato
    in respect of immovable property
    acquired by the husband in this colony. It was
    not even contended that the change of domicile
    gave the wife any different rights in respect of
    immovable property situated here from those
    which she would have enjoyed in Scotland. It
    was admitted that the law of Scotland must
    prevail, and the only question to be decided was
    what the law of Scotland was. In the present
    case it is not stated where the money came
    from to pay for the property purchased in Eng-
    land. We may assume, however, that the money
    was paid by the husband himself.That money,
    at all events, until paid to the vendor,
    formed part of the community between the
    spouses. Does the fact that it is invested by
    the husband in the purchase in his own name of
    land situated in England deprive the wife of her
    share in the community ? If such were the
    law a husband married here in community of
    property, who wishes to deprive his wife of her
    share, might change their domicile to a foreign
    country, where community does not exist, and
    then with impunity obtain the wife's share for
    himself by investing the whole of the partner-
    ship in immovable property situated ia such
    foreign country. In this colony parents often
    prefer to see their daughters married in com-
    munity instead of by ante nuptial contract, be-
    cause they consider the tacit contract of com-
    munity of more advantage to their daughters.
    All the advantage might, however, be lost if the
    husband had it in his power by a subsequent
    change of domicile and purchase of land in the
    new domicile to transfer his wife's property to
    himself. In answer to the first question, the
    Court is of opinion that the immovable pro-
    perty in England falls within the community of
    property created by the marriage. In answer
    to the second question the Court is of opinion
    that the change of domicile of the parties has
    no effect upon their respective rights in regard
    to the said immovable property.

    Their lordships concurred.
