The present work was collected from his manuscripts by one of his pupils. Along with cases and opinions, it contains the reading of the Statute of Inrollments delivered in 1778 in Lyons Inn and the interesting case of General Stanwix. "Stanwix and his daughter had perished in the same shipwreck, and the question, as between their representatives, was whether either could be presumed to be the survivor; the case was compromised; but Fearne for his own amusement composed these two arguments for the two claimants.": Butler, preface to the seventh edition of Contingent Remainders cited in Holdsworth, History of English Law XII:374.
