his Body ; for none of the No- 
bility which is Lord of the Par-

to be tried by his Peers, fliall 
be arrefted by his Body. The 
Law intends they afllft the King

Weal, and keep the Realm in 
fafety by their Prowefs and Va- 
lour, and they are intended to 
have fufficient in Lands where-

the Degree of Nobility. They 
lliall not therefore be put inju-

difference in that an Ariefl: lies

that particular differ from a C«.

Attachment by writ, Attachia- 
mentum per breve. It differs 
from a Diftrels or Dijirivgat in 
this, That an attachment reach- 
eth not to Lands, as a Diftrefs 
doth ; and that a Diftrefs touch- 
eth not the Body ( if it be pro- 
perly taken) as an Attachment 
doth, yet are they divers times 
confounded. Howbeit in the moft 
common Ufe, an Arrachment isi 
tlie apprehending of a Man by 
his Body to bring him to anfwer 
the Plaintiff's Aftion. A Diftrefs 
without a Writ, is the faking of 
a Man's Goods for iome real 
Caufe, as Renr-fervice, or the 
like, whereby to force him to 
replevy, and fo to be Plaintiff 
jn an Aftion of Trefpafs sgainft

faid to be attainted of Diffeifin,

S E. I. A Man is attainted by' 
two means, 'viz. by Appearance 
or by Procefs, Attainder by Ap- 
pearance is by Confefljon , by 
Battel or by Verdift : Attaint 
by Confeffion is twofold, one 
at the Bar before the Judges, 
when the Prifoner upon the 
Indi£lment read , being ask- 
ed guilty, or not guilty ? an- 
fwers guilty, never putting him- 
felf upon the Jury : the other, 
is before the Coroner in San- 
ftuary , where he upon his 
Confeffion was in former times 
conftrained to abjure the Realm, 
which from the effeft is called 
Attainder by Abjuration. At- 
tainder by Battel is when the 
Party is appealed by another, 
and chufing to try the Tru^h by 
Combat, rather than by Jury, 
is vanquilhed. Attainder by 
Verdia is when the Prifoner 
at the Bar anfwering not guil- 
ty to the Indictment, hath an In- 
quefi: of Life and Death paf. 
fing upon him, and is by their 
Verdift pronounced guilty. Ar.

his default is pronounced or

difference bttwecn Attainder 
and Conviftion, the firft being 
larger than the other, Convifti-

Attainder by Judgment: Yet by

A Burgeft, Burgenils, is, m^ 
Le«. 22. {i.e.) A Freeman of a 

Burglary, Burglaria, a, f. Sfel. 
no. It is derived of Burgh a 
Houfc, and Laron a Thirf. Ic 
is ufually defined the Nigh r» 
breaking of an Houfe, with an 
intent to ileal or kiil, though 
none be killed, nor any thing 
ftolen ; and To it is of a Stable^ 
parcel of a Houfe, but not of 
breaking onc*s Clofe to kill him» 
nor one's Houfe, if it be but to 
beat him, nor chough it may be 
to kill kirn, if it be in the day 
time. It may be Burglary If 
one enter inro a Houfe and break 
ic not, as if he come in at the 
Chimney, or by a falfe Key ; 
and if he break the Houfe, the* 
he enter not, as if one break 
down a Window to hook ouC 
any thing, Cofetf 4 R<^. Richard 
yaux brings an Appeal of Bur- 
glary again 11 Thomas Brook, and 
declares that the Defendant* 
domum manfionaUm prgedillavt Ri- 
chardi Vawx felonice i3 hurgaliter 
fregit. The Declaration was 
found infufHcient, becaufe of 
this word Burgalittr, but it ought 
to be Burgulanttr, or BurgUriter, 
and the OfFepcc is called Bur- 
glary, or Burgulary, and noc 
Burgale ; Burglariter ejl vox artit 
as felonice, nurdravis, rafitit, ex-, 
cambium, ivarrantizare, and.di« 
vers others, which cannot be

this is Burglary, although no

two Houfes and inhabit fome- 
times in one-, and fometimes 
in another, and hath Servants 
in both, and in the Night- 
when his Servants are forth, 
the Hdufe is broke by Thieves, 
this is Burglary. All Iridiflr.

H. 6. fol. 3. That to wage Bat-

Civil Law : But Moil faith it is 
by our Common Law, and as 
Stanndford, Pleas of theCrion, fol. 
ij-j. a. faith, that they fhall 
come armed into the Court, and 
join iflue. The Plaintiff begins; 
his Appeal, ^c. and the Defen- 
dant pleads Not guilty, and (as 
Britton fetteth it down, fol. ^i.) 
undertakes to defend it with his 
Body, &c. and after, one taketb 
the other by the hand, and firft, 
the Defendant faith in this man- 
ner, Hear you this, you Man 
whom I hold by the Hand, 
which are called John by youc 
Chriftian Name, that I Pierce, 
fuch a Year, fuch a Day, in fuch 
a place, the aforefaid Murder 
of U. neither did do, nor go 
about, neither pui'pofe, nor ai- 
fented to fuch a Felony, as yoii

and his Saints. And after the 
Accufer faith. Hear you this, 
you Man, whom I hold by the

perjured ; For on fuch a Day, 
fuch a Year, in fuch a Place, you 
did fuch Treafon, or fuch a 
Murder, which I have alledged 
againft you, or whereof I chal- 
lenge you. So God me help, 
and his Saints. Then they are 
both led into a certain place, 
where both further fay. Hear 
you this Juftices, that we L 
and P. have neither eat nor

whereby the Law of God (hould

fhall fight with Weapons, but 
not with any Iron, but with 
two Staves or Baftons tipt with 
Horn of an Ell long, both of 
egual length, and each of them 
a Target, and with no other 
Weapon may they enter the 
Lifls; and if the Defendant can 
defend himfelf till afcer Sun. 
fet, and as my Author faith, 
till you may fee the Stars in the 
Firmament, and demand Judg- 
ment if he ought to fight any 
longer, then mufl there be Judg- 
ment given on the Defendant's 
fide. And BraBon agreech here-

/^ Coroner, Corona tor, oris, m. 
Coroner is an ancient Officer 
of Tru(>, and of great Autho- 
rity, ordained to be a princi- 
pal Confervator or keeper of 
the Peace, to bear Record of 
the Pleas of the Crown. Af- 
though by the Law the Coro- 
ner cannot enquire of any Fe- 
Jony, but the death of a Man, 
yet it hath been faid, that in 
Northumberland they enquire of 
all Felonies, but this Autho- 
rity they maintain by Prefcri- 
ption. If a Man be killed or 
drowned in the Arms or Creeks 
of the Sea, where a Min may 
fee Land from the one part 
to the other, the Coroner fhall 
enquire thereof, and nor the 
Admiral, becaufe the Country 

' c o 

thereof may well have kn

real : Diftrefs perfonal is made 
by furprifing a Man's moveable

the fecurity of his appearance to

on immoveable Goods, as the

thus it is interpreted by Hotoman

(yet when a Man or Woman is

Man's Hand cucring of Wood,

felf giveth it to her. Of a Caftle 
that is maintained for the necefla- 
ry defence of the Realm, a Wo- 
man {hall not be endowed, be- 

D O 

caufe it ought not to be divided; 
and the Publick fhall be prefer- 
red before the Private: But of a 
Caftle that is only maintained 
for the private ufe and habita- 
tion of the Owner, a Woman 
fiiall be endowed. A Woman 
may be endowed of a third part 
of the profit of a Dovc-houfe, 
of the third part of a Pifcary, 
viz. Ttrtiutn Pifcem vel JaBum re- 
tis ttrtium. The fureft Endow- 
ment of Tythes is of the third 
Sheaf, for what Land ihall be 
fown is uncertain. If the Wife 
be paft the Age of nine years 
at the death of her Husband, (he 
ihall be endowed qf. What age 
foever her Husband bei albtic 
he were but four years old : 
for Confenfus non concubitus facit

Dower to the Wife, and there- 
fore it is accounted in Law after 
the death of the Husband, Legi- 
timum mktrimonium, a Lawful 
Marrriage, quoad dot em. If a Man 
tsketh a Wife of the Age of 7 
years, and after alien his Land, 
and after alienation the Wife at- 
tainethtothe age of nine year*, 
and after the Husband dieth, the 
Wife {hall be endowed ; for al- 
beit fhe was not abfolurely dow- 
able at the time of the Marri- 
age, yet fhe was conditionally 
dowable, viz. if Ihe attained to 
the Age of nine years before the 
death of the Husband, for by 


his death the pofllbiliry of Di 
er is confummate. So it i 
the Husband alien hisLand, 
then the Wife is attainted 
Felony, now Ihe is difabled; 
if ihe be pardoned before 
death of the Husband, flie 11 
be endowed. It h commo 
faid three things are favoi

the County, whereof they bear 
their Name, is not abfurdly fig- 
nified in Sir Thomas Smith, lib. 2. 
cap, 14. where he faith that the 
Sheriff is called Vicecomes, as 
( Vicariut Comitis ) following all 
matters of Juftice, as the Earl 
ihould do ; and that becaufe the 
Earl is moft commonly atten- 
dant upon the King in his Wars, 
or otherwife. So that it feem- 
eth that Earls by reafon of their 
high Imployments, being not a- 
ble to follow alfo the buHnefs 
of the County, were delivered of 
all that Burthen, and only en- 
joyed the Honour, as now they 
do. And the Sheriff although he 
is ftill called Vicecomes, yet all he 
doth is immediately under the 
King, and not under the Earl.

laft Will and Teftament, until

and fo the difpofing and order-

not in Capite of the King, nor 
of any other Lord by Knight's

Ch. Second's time liberty is given 
to devife the Prote£lion of the

no Guardian to his Child, the 
Ordinary may appoint one to 
order his Moveables and Chat-
