COOKE v BULL and ANOTHER
The testator in this cause Joseph Bull who was a solicitor's clerk died at Clerkenwell in February last.
He was married, but had been long separated from his wife, and by his will, which was made in 1875 he gave the whole of his property to the plaintiff, Eliza Cooke, who had lived with him for some years, and by whom he had a family.
The validity of the will was disputed by the defendants, the next of kin, but they did not appear to support their pleas.
The Court pronounced for the instrument, with costs.
