Excerpt from The Law Reports: Supplemental Indian Appeals; Being Cases in the Privy Council on Appeal From the East Indies, Decided Between March, 1872, and November, 1873, and Not Reported in Moore's Indian Appeals
The summary Of the Collector (if it may be looked at) discloses that the zemindars were not unanimous in their view of the custom; and it further appears that their opinions were given with reference to the succession to a zemindary in a family of a different caste. The late zemindar, who was one of those vouched, differed from the majority, and declared that the eldest son, although by the junior wife, would succeed. It is true that, for the reasons already given, much reliance cannot be placed on his statement, but, so far as it may be of any value, it negatives the alleged custom, at all events as one prevailing in his own caste and zemindary.
