680.     Legacies.

Unless there is a contrary intention shown in the will, the general rule is that annuities1 are included in the term 'legacies' in a will2 and also in the term 'pecuniary legacies'3. Similarly, unless a contrary intention is shown in the will4, the term 'legatee' may include an annuitant5.
