ABSTRACT
The article examines the legal provisions of Great Britain's Trustee Act 1925. At a cursory first glance, Section 47 of the Trustee Act 1975 (Bermuda Islands) might be thought to replicate the substance of the English Section 57. In reality, though, what was enacted was a hybrid, combining elements drawn from Section 57 (with key omissions) and also from another English statutory provision. Section 64 of the Settled Land Act 1925. The overall effect of this hybrid is crucial in distinguishing English law from Bermudian law. This was highlighted in a recent court case in Bermuda.
