The common law rule known as the rule against perpetuities was developed by the English courts in the seventeenth century. It was one of a number of rules developed by the courts to restrict certain dispositions of property. The rule in its modern form is actually a rule against the remoteness of vesting so that the name 'rule against perpetuities' is to some extent inappropriate.
