(a) The object of these limitations is, by means of the intervening estate vested in the trustee, to prevent the union of the estates for life with the reversion in fee, and the consequent destruction of the contingent remainders which would otherwise ensue. For it is a well known rule, that “ if the particular estates which support contingent remainders are not in esse when the contingency happens, the contingent estates can never arise, whether it happens by surrender, merger, or any other way.” Butl. Fearne, p. 317. Now if in the above case the tenants for life and the reversioner had joined in a conveyance to A. B. in fee, the particular estates of the tenants for life, upon which the intervening contingent remainders depend, would have become consolidated with the reversion, and ceased to exist as particular estates. The consequence is obvious.

A doubt was at one time entertained whether a court of equity would compel a purchaser to accept a title depending on the destruction of contingent remainders. Rooke v. Kidd, 5 Ves. 647. Such a title has since been held to be marketable. Hasker v. Sutton, 2 Sim. & Stu. 513. On the subject glanced at in this note, see Butl. Fearne, pp. 316-350.
