     George Robinson Bowker was mentioned in a civil court action on 20 July 1815. AVELING v. KNIPE By articles of agreement, dated the 14th of May, 1806, Edward Knipe agreed to sell to Thomas Aveling and George Bowker, their heirs and assigns, a freehold estate at the price of 11,500/; and it was agreed, that 500/., part thereof, should be paid to Knipe on the execution of the agreement ; that 30001., other part of the said sum of 11,500/., should be paid by
Aveling and Bowker, their heirs, executors, or administrators, on the 25th of March next; and that 6000/., the remaining part, should at the same time be secured to Knipe, his executors, &c. with interest at 5 per cent, by mortgage of the estate sold ; and be suffered to continue on such mortgage, the interest being regularly paid, for the term of seven years ; and Knipe agreed to make a clear title at his own expence, to pay half the expence of the conveyance, and to discharge all out-goings up to the said 25th of March next, and on payment of the remainder of the purchase-money to Knipe, and on his having such mortgage for 60001., to put Aveling and Bowker, their heirs or assigns, into possession; and Aveling and Bowker for themselves, their heirs, executors, and administrators, agreed to purchase the said estate at the price of 11,500/., and to pay and secure the remainder of the purchase-money in the manner above-mentioned on the 25th of March next, upon being put into possession ; and it was farther agreed, that, if Aveling and Bowker should neglect to complete the purchase, and to pay or secure the remainder of the purchase-money on or before
the 25th of March next, as aforesaid, the said Edward
Knipe having made out a good and clear title to the said
estate, then and in such case the purchase-money paid
should be forfeited ; and Knipe should be at liberty to
resell, and Aveling and Bowker, their heirs, executors,
and administrators, should make good to Knipe any loss
or deficiency he might sustain in consequence of such
neglect.
The sum of 5001. was paid to Knipe upon the execution of the agreement. On the 10th of June, 1806, Aveling died; having, by his will, dated the 20th of May, 1805, appointed Bowker one of his executors and residuary legatees. 1815.
The Bill was filed by the grandson and heir at la» of Aveling ; alleging, that the sum of 500l. had been paid by Aveling and Bowker jointly ; and praying, that the Defendants Knipe and Bowker may be decreed specifically to perform the agreement that Bowker may be decreed to pay one half of the purchase-money, and
the other executors of Aveling may pay the remainder,
and the Defendant Knipe to make out a clear and good
title, and convey to the Plaintiff and Bowker, according
to the agreement.
The Defendant Bowker by his answer stated, that
Aveling had made the purchase for this Defendant, his
son in law, who paid out the 500/. on the execution of
the agreement out of his own money : but soon afterwards Aveling told him he should like to go halves
with him in the purchase.and the Defendant answering,
that he could have no objection, as he came to Aveling
for assistance, and could not purchase the estate without
his assistance, Aveling said he would consider of it ;
desiring the Defendant to transfer 2501. in the books
of his banker from Aveling s account to the Defendant's,
as one half of the 500/., paid to Knipe : which transfer
was made accordingly ; it still remaining undecided,
whether they were to go halves in the purchase, or not ;
submitting, that in case the agreement ought to be specifically performed, the Defendant is entitled to have it
carried into execution for his sole benefit ; and if the
conversation between the Defendant and Aveling, and the
transfer of the sum of 250/. amount to an agreement, it
must be considered as a new agreement independent of
and distinct from the former, and as it is not in writ-
Ing, and signed by the Defendant, &c. insisting upori
the Statute of Frauds ( 85 ).
There was evidence of declarations of Aveling up to
his death, that he assisted the defendant Bowker in the
purchase ; and that the estate was to be bought for
him.
The MASTER of the ROLLS. It is admitted, that, if Aveling and Knipe are to be considered as joint purchasers, the Plaintiff's case would wholly fail. On the face of the agreement they jointly contract with the vendor ; but a doubt was suggested, whether a Court of Equity would in any case execute such an agreement by a conveyance in joint- tenancy. It would not, if there were any circumstances, from which it could be collected, that a joint-tenancy was not in contemplation : but I have no conception, that it is of course upon a controversy between two purchasers to depart from the letter of their agreement, and decree them to be tenants in common. There is a case, Edwards v. Fashion ( 86 ), where the two daughters of a mortgagee for a term of years, taking under his Will the residue of his personal estate, including the mortgage, equally to be divided between them, afterwards purchased the equity of redemption to them and their heirs : it was held under the circumstances, that there was no survivorship : but it is not stated, as a general principle, that articles of agreement must of necessity import a tenancy in common, when in words it is a joint-tenancy. That case proceeds upon the ground, that the purchase was founded on the mortgage ; and, the daughters being tenants in common of the mortgage, they were held to be tenants in common of the equity of redemption likewise.
It was contended, that Aveling's contribution to the
purchase-money has turned them into tenants in common.
That is not the effect of an advance of money ...
