As to the validity of an exchange when no house is taken by the

incumbent in exchange for the parsonage-house granted, see supra,

p. 301, n. («).

(n) It is doubtful whether the incumbent can grant a lease which shall be binding on his successor of lands taken by him in exchange; for the statute 13 Eliz. c. 10, s. 3, enacts, that all leases by parsons, or other ecclesiastical persons, other than those "whereupon the accustomed yearly rent or more shall be reserved," shall be utterly void. Thus a lease by a vicar of newly reclaimed lands, which had never before been in a condition to be let, was held void, because there was no accustomed yearly rent. {Doe d. Tennyson v. Lord Yarborough, 1 Bing. 24; S. C. 1 J. B. Moore, 258). If, therefore, the accustomed yearly rent means an accustomed yearly rent on a demise by the incumbent, of course there can be no valid lease (beyond the incumbent's life) of lands newly taken in exchange. But it is possible, that if the lands had been in lease before the exchange, a lease by the incumbent, at the old rent, would be valid.
