Ex-wife seeks further payment from ex (and late) husband

A woman who was paid £756,000 in a divorce settlement six years ago is now claiming an increased share of her ex-husband’s estate to more than £1 million – four years after his death.

Penny Ann Davison is claiming that she is entitled to the extra amount because her late ex-husband’s death meant a £2 million tax bill was avoided. Penny Davison is being represented by barrister Lynsey Cade-Davies.

Penny Davison was married to Albert Davison, a horse owner and successful gambler who was described in the High Court divorce ruling by Mrs Justice Baron as a “charming rogue”.

The current hearing is in the Appeal Court. The judges reserved their decision to a date to be set.
