Ejectment . . . by a bishop

"If the copyholders of a manor belonging to a bishopric , during the vacancy of the see, commit a forfeiture by cutting timber, the succeeding bishop may bring ejectment. Read v. Allen" (1730) (Oxford circuit Nisi Prius---no reporter that accords with any modern citation style).

William Selwyn, I An Abridgement of the Law of Nisi Prius 570 n. 5 (1831).
