Aft of Parliament, which fays that no tally or allignment Ihall be admitted, all. wed, or
proffered until the Mayor &c. ; which is a fufficient matter ; and [then there is the jlea of] 1. 1.5 b.
payment to the Duke of York, and that they had nothing beyond that. And Sir, the plea
is not good ; for the Act is (as above) that no one Jhall be fcrved until the Mayor, txc. be
fatisfied ; then, the collecftors might well have barred the Duke of York ot thofe 100/. by
reafon of the faid A61 ; but they would not, but paid the faid Duke; which payment ffiall
be held as without warrant; and fo the 100/. are in their hands; and confequently
there is fufficient for the 40/. Likewife there is, in fat5l, no Act of Parliament, but only a
recital, which cannot be effcftual ; for if there be no fuch Aft, there is the payment without
warrant. This is what Yelverton faid. The Chief Baro.m fiid that the plea is not good '
for another caufe, becaufe the Acfl is conditional, viz., '' until the Mayor be fatisfied the
10,000 marks ;" and they have not furmifed in facft that the (aid 10,000 marcs were
yet unpaid ; — as if the King grant an aiuiuity " pur autre vie," to be taken out ot the
curtoms of fuch a place, and the King then grant another annuity to be taken out ot the
fame cuffoms : now if I have a " Deliberate," and he [the fccond annuitant] bring a bill of
Debt againft them, it is no plea for them to fay that I had a " Deliberate" direfted to them, I
and how they had nothing in hand ; but befides that, they muff ffiow that he for whofe lite
the annuity was granted is ffill alive: — otherwife they have no caule to pay the 400/.; ]
wherefore they ought to furmife in facft that they are yet unpaid, or otherwife it is of no
avail. Wherefore [&c.] jTOl'tCfCUC* As to that, the plea is good enough, and it is not
fimilar to the cafe which vou put, which is only matter in faft, which muff be lurmifed in 1
fa6t, ur otlierwife it is of no avail : but here, they have nothing to do (whctlier they ar • paid
or not) but to allow the " Deliberate." As in the cafe of us who are Juftices, they h: ve to
pay our falary ; and that is fufficient warrant for them, although it may be that we an paid
before ; for whether we are paid before or not does not concern them. (And this, too, was
the opinion of the Court.) And as to what Yelverton fiid, that it is necelTary to furmile
in fa<ft that there is fuch an Ad: ; this does not hold good; fur it luffices that the writ ,

as to what has been faid that the charter Ihall be taken as ilrongly as polfible in favour of
the King, and f-lrongly againfl; the party, and that nothing pafTes out of the King except by
exprefs words ; this is true in fome cafes, and in others not ; viz. where the party fues a
fpecial charter of pardon, there there mufl: be exprefs words, and the King mull: be fully
certified of the thing in refpeft of which he wifhes to have the charter ; and. there, alio it is
necefTary that the King be informed by exprefs words and not by obfcure words ; and in
fuch caie the charter Hiall be taken and conilrued mofl; in favour of the King, and moll to
the difadvantage of the party ; becauie this tuit comes iblely tVom his own liiit. But it is
not fo in this cafe ; for the charter comes from tlie King himielf of his fpecial grace without
iuit or means of the part} , but of the King's mere motion ; and this pardon fliall be taken
moll: beneficially for the party ; becaufe the law fuppofes that the King is informed of the i
tiling pardoned by exprefs words, as well as by exprefs words in the fpecial charter ; and lo it. 11.
there is a diitintlition between fpecial and general pardon. To which M.\rrh.\.\i and other
Juiiices agreed. . . . And, Sir, as to what is laid by my Mailer Chock, that inalmuch as
this thing is a duty accrued to the King, and there are no words in the charter to pardon
this \\\{^ return, and fo this falle return cannot be underllood as being within the words
contained in the faid charter, to wit " offences &c. ;" [even] then, it [the charter] is luflicient ;
for if the trefpafs be the reafon of the amercement and be pardoned, then, by coniequen e, the
amercement is erroneous. And to this the Juflic'es agreed. And as to furceafing his tin e, and
that the flicriff might have been well certiiied of this, becaufe it is his own return, aiu! of liis
own aft he can well take cognizance ; Sir, in this cafe he did not lurceafe his time ; for the
fheriff" could not be informed of this before ; for notwithllanding that the return was his own
aft, this matter was not yet brought to his notice; for his return was good and legal after

two years, until the coroners certified the record of outlawry ; and this was not the aft of
the flierit}, but ot his coroners, ot which he cannot have cognizance before being warned
thereof; and he has not fiuxeafed his time; for he had never time to plead his charter
before. For before the record certified by the coroners, lie could not plead his charter; for
no trelpals or default appears or exills in the IlierifT before the certificate of the coroners;
and as loon as the coroners had certified, in the fame Term the Juftices amerced him, and
afiefl'ed the amercement, and fent it into the Exchequer, fo that he could not liave advantat::;e
of his charter before; for, before that, he could not have cognizance of the matter; and as
i'oon as he had cognizance, he did as the law requires. jTOttCfCUC' Perhaps, if he had
come before us, before the certification by the coroners, and had lirought his charter and
fliovved to us that he had made a falfe return, and prayed aid of the charter, we fhoi'ld have
aided him : tor if one be indicfted before us in Pais, and the indidlee, before award of any
procefs againft him, come before us and fliow the charter of the King, we will aid him as
well as if he had come by procefs: io here. [Moile, Danvers, and others follow.]
jFOl'tCfCUC : It is true, an amercement is the I'mallell: trefpafs that can be; but there f. 2-
are general amercements which are aflt-fied by oath of twelve men ; and there are fpecial
amercements which lliall be afleffed officially by us who are Jullices, and this is one. (Note
this.) And itiil there is a diflinftion between an amercement aiul a fine ; for on a fine the
party fhall always have a day to put in pleciges for his fine ; and on an amercement it fliall
not be fo. Note the difference. And it is the opinion of all the Jull:ices that the party
fhall have advantage by his charter. Adjourned in Banco c\:c. &c. [The beginning of the

be that the tenant alienated his eltate, as he could well do ; then it is found foi' the '
demandant that he alienated ; and ftill he has no caufe ot adioii ; then, to take fuch iflue

Pole: The contrary appears to me. . . . Yelvkrton : To the fume purport.
jTOVtCfCUC fiiJ : Jt appears that it is good law in your cale of a Dmti fitit infra
u-tatem, to fivy that he did not alienate, and if it be found that he did alienate, whatever the
eftate may be, it is fufficient for the demandant : but it is not fo here ; for although it be
found here that he alienated his ellate, he fliall never recover ; and therefore the caies are
not fimilar; and therefore the tenant mull: fiy that he did not alienate in fee, and the
demandant muil maintaui that he did alienate in fee; and not only that he alienated,
but that he alienated in fee. And in many cafes the demandant has to traverfe all that is
put forward by the tenant, although there be two or three matters. As in writ of " Cofinage "
if the tenant fays that this coufm on whofe pofreifion he has brought his aflion, had ilfue one
J., who furvived him, on whole poffeilion he muft bring this adion, the demandant fliall iay
that this coufin had not fucli ifl'ue who furvived him and was feifed ; all this he fhall have in
his plea. And fo it iliall be in many fmiilar cafes : and io here the tenant fhall fiy that he
did not alienate in fee, and the demandant fhall maintain that he did alienate in fee; and
this ifTue fhall be underftood of all alienations to his difinheritance. Adjourned. [The
remainder of the cafe is at f 1 1.]

In a writ of " Entry," " where entry is not given by law," the defendant pleaded in bar;
and the plaintitT replied ; and it appeai'ed by his replication that the plaintiff had nothing
except in right of his wife; and afterwards the iHue was found for the plaintifT. And riow
the plaintiff prayed his judgment. And the defendant faid that he ought not to go to
judgment; for it appears by the replication that he has nothing except in right of his wif^e ;
in which cafe /he ought to be named with him ; which matter appears by his own replica-
tion, and it appears that his writ is in his name alone, leaving out his wife : judgment,
whether &c. And the plaintiff prayed his judgment notwithftanding anything that he
(the defendant) has faid ; for this adtion for lands belonging to him in right of his wife lies
in his name alone; for it is only a perfonal adion, and no freehold will be recovered, but
only damages; as in a writ of Trefpafs at the common law, which lies for the hufband, leaving
out his wife. And, Sir, in many other cafes is it as in this; for a "Ouare impedit " lies for
the hufljand, leaving out his wife ; and ilill in that cafe he Ihall recover the prefentation ;
and here he only recovers damages. And the defendant faid that the cafe of a " Ouare
impedit" was not fimilar; for the "Ouare impedit" is only given for the difturbance, and f- 4-
the avoidance is a title to the hufband alone, and vefts in the hulhand, and the hufband fliall
prefent although his wife die without iflue ; and then it Iliall go to the executors : and this
aftion fhall not do lb ; for this action trenches on the right of the inheritance, and the right ;
ihall be tried by this adtion to which the wife muft be a party. As, in " Detinue ol
Charters" concerning the inheritance of the wife, the acftion fhall be brought by the huflwnd
and his wife, and not by the hufband alone : and yet this is a perfonal adion ; and the
reafon is becaufe the charters concern the inheritance of the wife ; and in fuch adion Ihe
