Caunce v Caunce 
A husband and wife both contributed to the purchase price of a house (unregistered land). The house by conveyed into the husband’s sole name.
This historic case stated that a wife’s rights were irrelevant to the doctrine of notice as a wife lived in the shadow of her husband. This case has since been expressly reversed in Kingsnorth Finance v Tizard .
