estates. In England this term was formerly used in
and even in pleadings, and is still, adhered to with reference to ancient
descriptions in deeds, in continuing the transfer of the same. property. It
imports a yard at the back part of, or behind a house, and belonging
thereto: but although formerly used in pleadings, it is now unusual to
adopt it, and the word yard is preferred. 1 Chittys Pr. 177, 2 Ld. Raym.
