HEREDITAMENTS

estates. Anything capable of being inherited, be it
corporeal or incorporeal, real, personal, or mixed and including not only
lands and everything thereon, but also heir looms, and certain furniture
which, by custom, may descend to the heir, together with the land. Co.
Litt. 5 b; 1 Tho. Co. Litt. 219; 2 Bl. Com. 17. By this term such things
are denoted, as may be the subject-matter of inheritance, but not the
inheritance itself; it cannot therefore, by its own intrinsic force,
enlarge an estate, prima facie a life estate, into a fee. 2 B. & P. 251; 8
T. R. 503; 1 Tho. Co. Litt. 219, note T.


2. Hereditaments are divided into corporeal and incorporeal. Corporeal
hereditaments are confined to lands. (q. v.) Vide Incorporeal
hereditaments, and Shep. To. 91; Cruises Dig. tit. 1, s. 1; Woods Inst.
221; 3 Kent, Com. 321; Danes Ab. Index, h.t.; 1 Chit. Pr. 203-229; 2 Bouv.
Inst. n. 1595, et seq.
