Outlawry on Appeal of, 226.
A writ of Mesne was brought by two
husbands and their wives as in
right of the wives. It was alleged
on the other side that, while the
tenancy was supposed by the writ
to be in common, the two moieties
were in fact held respectively in
severalty. It was replied that it had
not been shown that the seignory of
the lord paramount was not entire.
But it was held that, as the tenants
might have become entitled by
several purchases, in which case the
tenancy and the seignory would be
severed, it was necessary to show
parcenary specially in order to main-
tain the writ, 112-114.

Pleadings as to title in, 54.
Defendant pleadedthataleasehad been
made to the plaintiff for life, so that
there might be re-entry whenever
the rent should be in arrear, and
that he had, as heir of the lessor,
entered for rent in arrear. The plain-
tiff alleged that the defendant had
already distrained for the rent.
Issue was joined on this, and, as it
was found that the defendant had
distrained, the ouster by him was
held a disseisin, and, without
enquiry over except as to the dama-
ges, it was adjudged that the plain-
tiff should recover seisin, 84.
The question of the sufficiency of the
disseisors to pay damages ought to

Her nephew entered and enfeoffed
one H. (with the advice and consent

taken any profits. Upon her return
to the country she was prevented
by H. from entering upon part of
the tenements, and when she en-
tered upon another part she was
ousted by H. Judgment was given
for the plaintiff with damages, and
it was held that the disseisin might
be adjudged to be the act of H .,

Question (waived) as to reservation of

one who was insufficient to warrant
and acquit him of services, when
the cognisor was previously bound
to warrant and acquit him, 72-74.
The Justices are directed to search for
evidence in the King's favour when
the tenants plead attornment to
his son, to whom, as they alleged,
the tenements which were held in
eapitc had been granted, 80-82.
Where, in assise of Novel Disseisin,
the plaint was for land and rent
against several defendants, and the
tenant of the land pleaded that ho
was in by virtue of a recovery, and
another as tenant of parcel of theland
out of which the rent was supposed
to issue pleaded in bar of assise, the
plaintiff abridged his plaint for the
rent, and the assise was awarded in
respect of the land alone, 24-26.

When a defendant stands at the bar
in respect of one action, the plaintiff
may count against him in respect
of another action, and have judg-
ment against him when he does not
answer, but not unless he has
answered as to the former action,
and not unless there be no variance
in the description of him between
the two writs, 62-64.
(Account.) If the defendant ac-
knowledge a receipt to the common
profit of himself and the plaintiff,
he must plead it with an absque hoc
that he received to the plaintiff's
particular profit, and this shall be
entered on the roll, 6-8.
(Aiel.) If recovery in assise of Novel
Disseisin or other possessory action
had against the grandfather be
pleaded in bar of the action of
Aiel, it is not sufficient for the
demandant to reply that the grand-
father died seised, but he must
show by what title. If, however,
he show title, he is not compelled to
show how the recoveror in the pre-
vious possessory action was divested
of his possession, 210-222.
A deed of demandant's father was
pleaded which recited lease for
years by his grandfather to tenant,
and confirmed to tenant in fee.

cannot afterwards allege joint-
tenancy. Sed quare, 234-236.
It was pleaded that the demandant had
disseised the tenant, and issue was
joined on that question of fact, 334.
(Entry sur disieiahi.) Where the
disseisin is supposed to have been
effected on the ancestor of the
demandant, and the tenant pleads
in bar a feoffment made to him by
the same ancestor with warranty,
this is regarded as only a traverse
of the writ, and issue is joined as
to the disseisin supposed by the
The disseisin was alleged to have
been effected on the demandant's
cousin, and in the count the resort
was made from the cousin to the
cousin's uncle, and the descent
from the latter to the demandant.
It was pleaded that the cousin's
father had other issue two daughters,
of whom one was living and the
other had living issue, and there-
fore that the action did not lie for
the demandant. It was replied
that the cousin's father had no
other issue by the same venter,
whereupon issue was joined, 114—
(Formedon in the Reverter.) The
tenant pleaded a deed by which the
supposed donor aliened to the
demandant in fee simple, and the
demandant was not allowed to aver
the gift in tail, but was compelled
to answer as to the deed, though it
was pleaded by a stranger, 282.
(Quare impedil.) The King's title to
present being founded upon seizure
following an alleged alienation, with-
out license, of an advowson held in
capite, the alienation was denied.
A fine was produced to show the
alienation, and, although the defen-
dant was a stranger, he was not
admitted to an averment traversing
the alienation, because (per Wil-
lou;ihby, Ch. J.) the words passing
an incorporeal hereditament by fine
bind both privies and strangers,
and because he did not show the
seisin of another by a presentation
or that any one had since become
the King's tenant with liccnse, 14,
