Equity Undue influence. The Chancery Division considered the making of a gift of land by a farm worker, W, to his former employers, with whom he had lived for many years. The court held that the defendants had not had undue influence over W, and that the evidence did not support the finding that an unconscionable transaction had taken place. It further held that, on the evidence, W had not made an executed will.
