1. Firstly whether your husband would be entitled to make a claim today would depend upon the trusts laid down in the will. If your husband's father was a trustee under the will, he would have been given certain powers in relation to any property given to the trust and any giving of the farm would have occurred in accordance with the terms of these powers given to the trustees. So you need to examine the powers given to the trustees by the will before you would know if there was a case. Secondly, there is a 12 year time limit within which these types of cases must be brought. Accordingly, the time limit for bringing a claim by your husband has long since passed. So I regret to say that it is now much too late to do something positive about what occurred over 70 years ago.
