The "trust" was a popular device used by the Victorian middle classes to preserve their private property. At the center of this legal institution was the trustee, who managed the property for the original owner. Victorian trustees found themselves in a society that was changing rapidly and extensively, which had a profound effect on their ability to carry out their duties. This book explores the legal response to the challenges faced by trustees, through the varied relationships which they experienced during their administration.

Review:

"Stebbings states her objectives as setting the trustee in his legal social and economic context, as reconstructing practical trust administration in Victorian England, and as placing legal doctrine in its contemporary context. She achieves all of these in this illuminating and useful study." Canadian Journal of History

"This book is an important scholarly addition to a problem that was central to the viability of family. It informs us of a method devised by the Settlor to transfer his wealth to his beneficiaries, appointing a trustee charged with this duty. Each chapter provides a narrative and analysis of the Settlor's problem as well as the circumstances related to trusteeship." American Historical Review

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2002. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The trust was a popular device among the Victorian middle classes to preserve their private property for the benefit of their families. At the centre of this legal institution was the trustee, whose duty it was to manage the property as the original owner wished. In their task of managing the property, Victorian trustees found themselves in a society which was changing rapidly and extensively, a new commercial and dynamic society which had a profound effect on their ability to carry out their duties. This book explores the legal response to the challenges faced by trustees, and does so through the varied relationships which trustees necessarily experienced in the course of their administration. A consideration of the legal dimension to trusteeship, this book sets the trustee in his legal, social and economic context. It will be of interest to legal historians, as well as to historians of nineteenth-century Britain. Seller Inventory # AAA9780521781855
