Assignment of Chattels real, to which a Person is entitled in Right of his Wife, in Trust to Re-assign the same.

Obs. 1. Terms for years and other chattels real, of which a wife is or may be possessed during her coverture, will survive to her, unless the husband exercise some act of ownership in his lifetime, as by assignment or otherwise. He cannot dispose of them by will until he has so done, as the will does not take effect until after his death, and the law vests the term in the wife immediately after the decease. Co. Litt. 351. b. Com. Dig. Baron and Feme, E. 2. 1 Rop. Hus. & W. 196.
