Stilk v Myrick[1809]

There were 2 members out of 11 of a ship’s crew who decided to desert it. The captain therefore promised the rest of the crew that if they sailed the ship successfully and safely back to port, the two members that deserted will have their wages shared equally between the men. However upon returning to port, the ship’s owner then refused to make extra payments to the sailors, therefore the sailors sued unsuccessfully.
