miift be named. And the law is the lame in the cafe of an adion of " b'orgery of deeds,"
which fliall he brought by both ; and fo it feems to be in this cafe. The phiintifF denied the
cafe of" I'"orgery of deeds;" for he faid that it fliall be brought by the hu,band omitting
the wife. Which note. (And this matter was well argued ; but I was not prefent at the
beginning.) JfOTtCfCUC : The cafe of a "Ouare impedit " is a good one to prove this cafe ;
and, Sir, in an action of " Detinue of charters," concerning the inheritance o\ the wife, it is
true that the aftion ihall be brought by the hufL>and and his wife, becaufe they are to recover
the charters which touch the inheritance of the wife : but if a writ of " Trelpafs '' be brought
for charters which touch the inheritance of the wife, this fliall be brought by the hufband
without the wife, becaufe it is not to recover the charters which concern the inlieritance of
the wife, but only damages for them ; and fo there is a dillinc^tion between thefe ad:ions.
(Note this.) Sir, if a tenant can have this aftion on the ftatute, it feems then t lat the
liufband can have it without the wife. — And it was adjourned. And on another i ay the
plaintiff came to the bar, and prayed his judgment. (And the matter was argued over
again: but I was not prefent.) And at the lail the plaintiff had judgment to recover &c. ^'

Hilary Term, 38 Hen. VI.

The cale was thus, in the Chancery. An Abbat had fued in Court Chriftian a t" 19 b.
" Spoliation" againft one K. clerk and one H. clerk, in that, whereas the fiid Abbat and
all his predeceffors have been feifed of the advowlbn of J. and like wife ot the church as
Parlon imparfonee, to hold to their own ule, from time of which the memory runneth not, and
had had all the tithes ^v:c., the laid R. and H. came and fpoiled him of his tithes, anil kejit
him out of his church, and took the tithes. And thereupon appeared the aforelaid H. and R.,
and faid that fuch an one was feifed of the advowfon aforelaid as in right of luch an one his 1
wite, m his demefne as of fee ; and furthermore how the ancellor of his wile was feifed before
him, and how the hufband prelented the faid R., wlio on his prefentation was admitted and ' |
inftituted and indudled, and took the tithes and held the cluirch as parfon and incumbent of
the faid hulLand, until he refigned &;c. : and then the laid hufliand prefented the fiid H., I
who on his prelentation &c., and held the church, and took the tithes as above : and f)
each one for his time ; and that the advowfon was never appropriated by the hufliand and
his wite, nor by the ancelfor of the wife. Ami we do not think that the Abbat ou^lit to
proceed againfl: them who were in by prefentation as above, ni (hi', ple.i and \\\ ihis L uirt
Chrillian. And thereon came the aforelaid R. and J J. in the Chancery, witli all the ni, tter
in a libel to the Chancellor, and prayed a " Prohibition " on this matter ; and it was granted
to them, and they had it. And thereupon came the Abbat and prayed a " Confultation."
And this matter was long pending in Chancery ; and now it comes into the Exchequer
Chamber before the Juflices of both benches, and the Chief Bar-on of the Exchequer and

the Mafter of the Rolls : and there the matter was well debated. Markham : It feems to
me that he iliall not have a " Conlultatiuii " ^c. [Mou,i- follows on the o'hcr fide, and
cites the Statute of Weltm. 2]. J?OitCfCUC fiid, that at the Common Law there was a
writ o\ " Right " " that he reftore the advowfon of the tithes of five acres of land," (or of one
acre of land, and the like) ; and for this was the ftatute made ; for a writ of " Right of Tithes"
ihall not be granted of lefs parcel than the fourth part ; and therefore the writ is, " that he
rertore the advowfon of the tithes of the fourth part ;" or of the third part, and fo on ; and 1
fuch writ was not at Common Law. — And this was not contradifted. Which note. [Danbv
and Yelverton follow.] Prisot: It has been adjudged a good plea in a " Ouare
impedit" againlT: a Prior, where he holds a church to his own ufe, x.o fay that it full of
himlelf, a year and a day before the writ was purchafed, as Parfon imparfonee ; becauf; the
church lliall be underftood as full ; and if the church was legally appropriated, then it is
legally full ; wherefore it appears that the " Ouare impedit" lies againfl him. jFortCfiUC :
Matter in facfl proves that a " Ouare impedit " lies againfl; the Parfon imparfonee : for there
are two or three "Ouare impedits" pending before you on a certain day (and he named
them). And in my time I know that ten or twelve " Quare impedits " have been returned ;
and therefore the " Ouare impedit " lies well enough : but even if it does not lie, ftill reafon
proves that it is not full; for the plea of plenarty which lay at Common Law is determined
by the Statute of Wcftminfler 2 and the pleading now given by the flatute. For at the
Common Law it was good plea to fay that the church was full on the day of the purchafe
of the writ ; and now it is not a plea unlefs he fay that tlie church v/as full by lus own
prefentation fix months before the purchafe of the writ ; and i'o he muft fay that it is full
by his own prefentation ; for if the church be full on the prefentation by a flranger, this is
not fufficient to abate the writ, unlefs he fiy that it was of liis own prefentation li.\ months
before the purchafe of the writ; and here he cannot fay that the church is full by his own
prefentation in this cafe, becaufe it is not full by any prefentation, and therefore, as againll
flrangers, the church fliall be adjudged vacant always, as to this aftion. And although
this pleading that he wifhes to put forward was ufed in former times, flill it was not
right pleading ; but I know very well that for a long time paft it lias not been held good
pleading. (Note this.) And then he told him that he fliould not have a " Coniultation,'
becaufe now the right of the advowibn will come in debate, and the pleading is of the entire
tithes of the church : and in all cafes where the tithes which amount to the fourth part or
more fliall come into debate between the parfons in Court Chriftian, and where they are in
by divers prefentations in right of divers patrons, fo that the right of patronage comes iito
debate, then there lies a " Prohibition," and no " Confultation " lliall be granted thereon ;
for there, there lies no "Spoliation;" but "Spoliation " lies where on'i incumbent ejects the
other out of his church and takes the profits, and the right of the advowlbn fhall not come
into debate between them. As if a parlon is made bifliop, and has licence from the Pope

to retain his benefice, if now the patron prefent another, and he is received and inftituted
and indut?led, the other parfon would have a "SpoHation." l<or in this cafe tlie ri^dit of
advowfon will not come into ilehate, for both incumbents claim in right of one patron ; bnt
whether the church becomes vacant or not, Ihall come into debate in this fpecial matter. And
the fame law liolds it my incumbent accept other benefices, and I thereon prefent a new
one, who is received and inflituted and inducted ; if my firft: parfon had licence to hold
pluralities, he lliall iiave a " Spoliation," and the plurality ("hall come into debate there. 1,'he
lame law holds of deprivation; or if one comes to me, and fays that my clerk is dead, when
he is alive, and I prelent him, the other iliall have " Spohation ;" and fo " Spoliation " lies
always between parfons, where they have colour by their admilhon ; and where the right of
advowfon fhall not come thereby into debate. — And this all agreed to. And lo their
opinion was in this cale that the " Confultation " does not lie for the reaion abo\e given.
And this was the opinion of the Mafter of the Rolls ; and he faid &c. (S>[c. And ic was
faid, that the debate on the appropriation ihall be tried in Court Chriftian.

In an a.'-lion of " Trefpafs," JfOttCfCUC f^id, if the defendant juftifies for tithes, as
parfon, and gives colour to tlie plaintiff as parfon of an adjoining church, this is plea to the
jurifdiftion of this Court ; becauie it appears that the right to the tithes will come into debate
between parfon and parion : but if the defendant juftifies, as above, and gives to the other
colour otherwile than as parion, he has given jurifditHion to this Court, becauie it does not then
appear by this pleading that the tithes v/ill come into debate. But if in his replication he
entitles himfelf, as parion, to the corn, becaufe he and liis predecefiors, parfons, have had fiich
portion of the tithes out of the parifh of the defendant, as being appropriated to his cliurch,
now by this plea, if it be confclTed by the defendant, the Court fhall be oulled of juriididtion ;
fo, as foon as it appears that the right to the tithes fhall come into debate, the Court iliali
ceafe ; and in like manner the Court Chriftian, as foon as the right of advowfon comes into
debate, although it did not appear at firl!:. {Sli(od not a ; and which was agreed to.)

the trefpafs. To which the plaintiff laid that long before the defendant had anything
therein, one J. was feifed in his demefne as of fee, and being thus feifed, leaied the lame

at i/liie i?.;c. ; and then it was. found for the plaintiff by a Nifi I'rius in Pais; and now it was
returned into the Bench. In the fame Term, Choki; came into the Kiiig's Bench and

rehearfed all the matter, and faid &c. &c On another day Littleton for

the plaintiff prayed his judgment. Choke: To judgment you ought not to go, for the
reafons above faid ; for as to the firft point, when he was oufted and his leffor dilTeifed, then
tlie will of his leafe was determined, and when it was once determined, it could not be
revived without the entry of the leffor; and ftill if he enter, it Ihall be called a new leafe at
the fufferance ot the leffor, after his re-entry ; and the entry of the leffce fliall not replace
the freehold in the leffor ; for by the diffeifin the leaie is determined : for he can
have " De ejedlione firma:; " againft the leffor, and recover his term ; but the lelft ; at will
cannot do fo ; thus when he re-entered he entered without title. Wherefore ir;.c. And
Sir, as to the fecond point, he has not alleged the life of H. F. ; in which cafe it iliall be (. ■
taken ilrongcfl: againlt him that he is dead , and then, he cannot hold at the will of II. F. ,
when he is dead ; in which cafe, when FT. F. is to have the eiT:ate, he ought to have alleged
the lite of H. as well as that ot A. ; tor both make his title ; and if he be dead, his title is

determined. Littleton : I think the contrary Bingham : As to the tirft

point, it feems to me that this entry was legal jTOttCfCllC : If he be in as ot

the tirft poffelTion after the death of IF F., it feems that duiing the lite of A. he fhall
punifli all trefpaffes, as Bingham has well laid; but it feems to me tliat the plaintiff ffiall
have his judgment to recover; and the ftrongeft argument againft his having liis judgment
is, becaule by his entry the freehold is not recontinued in his lelTor. Sir, this is the ftroni^eft
point for him whereon to prove his aftion good ; for if he be oufted, and he does not recontinue
his ertate, perhaps it is riglit then that lie maintain his adion without any entry. F^or the ,
caufe that the diffeifee fhall not have writ of Treipafs during the ditFeifin is, becaule he can
recontinue the freehold to himfelf by aftion or entry ; and thus there is no reafon to charge |
the diiTeifor for tlie feifm until he has recontinuetl the principal, that is, the freehold;
but here you iay that by his entry he cannot recontinue the freehold to the leffor ; thus it is j
right that he maintain his aftion without entry ; then this proves the entry as void, and as
if he had not fpoken of his entry: then the matter is in this pofition, that the plaintiff was
poffeffed by force of the fxid leafe at will until the defendant oufted him, and dilFeiled his '
leffor ; in v/hich cafe it is right that he fhall recover, for his ejectment, againft the di Teifor 1
without any entry : for if one be diffeifed, he fhall recover damages for the trefpafs male on
the difteilee without any re-entry. Wherefore tvc. W. Jennev faid: Althou' h he
recover his damages for the former entry, ftill he fliall not recover damages for the treipals
committed after the continuance, without re-entry ; and the writ is, " continuing the lame
trefpafs for eight years." JrOltCfCllC ,' \i the tenant at will low liis land, and then be i
