and his heirs

Words of limitation when used following the name of a devisee, for example, to A and his heirs. 57 Am J1st Wills § 1430. The same is true of the words when used in a deed, although such a technical meaning will give way to a practical construction where justice and reason so require. 23 Am J2d Deeds § 215.
