ON A STATUTE OF LIMITATION IN CASE OF TYTHES CLAIMED.

It is a rule in law (as it now stands) that a Layman can’t prescribe in non decimando (that is) if a Layman has lands which have never paid Tythes within the memory of man, yet he is not therefore discharged, unless he pays some composition or modus in lieu of Tythes. [first paragraph of text]
