Excerpt from The Virginia Carys: An Essay in Genealogy

Brougham had moved a parliamentary commis sion to investigate such hoary eleemosynary trusts as had outlived their usefulness, and a report had come in that, among others, a property known as Cary's Rents should revert to the heirs of the founder; this was described as lying, forsooth, on the Thames Opposite Windsor, but already swallowed by the growth of London: the Lord Chancellor, Clearing his docket, had exhumed an estate which had remained in Chancery until the direct representatives Of the original liti gants had become extinct; a new interpretation of a Tudor marriage settlement had overturned long established property rights. It was even averred positively that the British Government had asked the State Department at Washington to produce the Cary heir. In due time, when re plies to frantic inquiries in England came in, there was found to be no foundation whatever for the story: it was a purely American inven tion; no one had heard of it in England. The bubble was pricked.
