G. WOODFALL, ANQRL COURT, SKINNER STREET, LONDON. ADVERTISEMENT.

• The Author designs to publish occasionally a short report of any new cases which may be decided in relation to copyhold, customary freehold, or ancient demesne tenure, or the jurisdiction of courts baron or courts leet; and to refer in each report to the corresponding text in the present work.

It is also in the contemplation of the Author to submit for the adoption of stewards of manors, (where no established custom prevails,) a list of fees, which, in reference to the few decisions in the courts of law on that subject, and to the more general practice, gathered from a variety of cases, and several references that have been under the author's consideration, may appear to him to be calculated to prevent the too frequent questions raised with respect to the charges made by stewards on the admittance of new tenants. And in furtherance of this object the Author invites any communications which stewards of manors may be disposed to make to him.
