pot,1 although the land descends to the wife's heirs. And so if an absolute gift is  made to a stranger who, after the feoffment, marries one of the daughters and  parceners. 2It was said that the eldest must always be preferred because of the  privilege of age. But suppose that the eldest daughter dies during the life of the  father or mother from whom the inheritance descends, leaving an heir, a grandson or  granddaughter; with respect to seniority her oldest sister must be preferred to the  grandson or granddaughter of the eldest daughter, because she did not survive the  death of her parents. 3But what shall be said of serjeanty? It is evident that it cannot  be partitioned, lest the king be forced to receive his service in fractions. 4When  partition and the assignment by lot have been made, as aforesaid, and 5the  inheritance taken up, all hereditary rights pass to the heirs on civil acceptance.  But possession will not be theirs until it is actually taken,6 that is, animo and  corpore, their own or another's,7 as that of a procurator; before that time it will  not belong to them. Hence when partition has been made in the court of the lord  king, let them at once have a writ to the sheriff for having their seisin in accordance  with the partition made between them in the king's court, by this writ.
Writ to the sheriff for giving seisin to co-heirs after partition.
 The king to the sheriff, greeting. Know that an extent and valuation having been  made of all the lands and tenements which belonged to such a one, the father (or  mother) of such persons, and partition having been made among them, there fell  to such a one, the eldest daughter,8 by lot such messuages which are the heads of  baronies because of seniority, and such messuages by choice, [in all] so many lands,  so many tenements, so many advowsons and so many military fees; and in like  manner to such a one, such a portion (and so respecting the others). We therefore  order you to cause the aforesaid persons to have full seisin of the aforesaid lands  and tenements and fees at once, in accordance with what was said above. Witness  etc. If one of the several co-heirs and parceners dies without an heir of her body,  9before assignment or after it,10 partition having been made, her portion shall accrue  to the survivors by right of accruer.11
Of performing and taking homages.
 When, after the death of his ancestors, one has been acknowledged as heir by the  chief lord, whether the heir is of full age or not let the chief lord take his homage at  once, before he has wardship or relief.1213[for of heirs], some are bound to homage  and an oath of fealty, others only
