demesne, as of fee


demesne, as of fee
There is a distinction between a corporeal inheritance, of which a man is said to be wised in his demesne as of fee, and an incorporeal inheritance, of which he is said merely to be wised as of fee, and not in his demesne, because incorporeal hereditaments are by nature merely collateral to lands and houses, as a rent issuing out of those lands or houses, and the owner has no property, dominicum, or demesne in the thing itself. See 2 Bl Comm 106.
