Given as early inheritance before my death as he now wants no more to do with the family name he will no longer be in my will

I gave them in good faith with the expectation the family name was an honour to have

No not as yet wanted to know how I stood in legal terms
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
Hi
I am afraid that since you gave them to him as a gift you cannot insist upon their return - you are dependant on either his good nature - or (more likely) pointing out that since he has decided to separate himself from the family you assume he no longer wishes to have the items linked to it.
I am sorry not to give better news - please ask if you need further details
