as in gold and silver coins, and not only in such but in other things which are weighed,  counted or measured. Measured, whether it is a liquid, as wine and oil, or a solid, as  wheat; whether it has been measured or not measured: measured, as in a bushel, unmeasured  as in a sheaf, [and though it is taken] sometimes in one place, sometimes in  another, provided it is in a single tenement.1 And so of a liquid. And the same of  things that are counted. 2 Quiet and peace, peaceful possession and freedom, may be  called a free tenement or a quasi-free tenement, for he who has neither quiet nor peace  loses the advantage of his tenement, since without these a tenement cannot be enjoyed,3  as where another attempts to use by force against the will of the owner, [or]  levies wrongful distraints amounting to trespasses,4 which take from him the advantage  of possessing, [or] if wrongfully and without the lord's consent he attempts to  use some servitude, as where he attempts to put in beasts by force, or to use it other  than in the proper way, contrary to the will of the lord whose tenement it is. 5 Some  tenements are privately owned, the property of an individual by himself, without a  parcener or one joined to him, others are not held alone but with another joined to  him or6 a parcener: with one conjoined, as where a man holds with his wife, or conversely,7  who are not called parceners because their rights and the property do not  admit of division, for they are one flesh though different souls;8
A common tenement.
 9with a parcener, before partition, [that is] in the case of corporeal things which admit  of division. Incorporeal things, as rights, cannot be partitioned though they are common;  and similarly liberties, which are common,10 cannot be divided. The word common  means together with others or with others in one, that is, together.11 A  common tenement is not the property of any one by himself, nor is [any] separate  part, but his with others as a whole in common. That12 which is corporeal and by its  nature divisible among co-heirs and parceners may remain undivided, if they so  agree, to him and the others for some [common] use, as for pasture or cultivation; the  use will be the property of each person individually and by himself, over the whole,  and the tenement common to all the parceners as a whole, not the separate property  of any one, as a whole or in part.13 Hence when by common consent it is once agreed  among the parties that the tenement remain in common, that agreement cannot be  dissolved or the property divided without an agreement by all to the contrary, for  nothing is so in accord with natural equity etc.14 A thing may be held in common with  others, not by one without the others,
