The supkind; unless we presurne, which is next to impossible, position, however, on which we are now to proceed is, that all the three daughters died at one and the same that neither of the daughters ever obtained any actual moment. It is not stated, in the report of the case, in seisin; and the question to be solved is, to whom, on what order the decease of the daughters took place; the death of Catherine, did her share descend ; whebut, according to the principle suggested, it will ap- ther equally between her sister and her son, as being pear, on working out the fractions, that the heir of together heir to the purchaser; or whether solely to the one who died first would have been entitled to the son, as being heir to the purchaser quoad his mothe largest share, and the heir of the one who died ther's share.

And the same law is, if a man has namely, that all the lineal descendants of any person issue two daughters, and dies seised of certain land, and deceased should represent their ancestor, that is, should a stranger abates, and afterwards one of the daughters stand in the same place, and take the same share, as the has issue two daughters and dies, and the aunt and the ancestor would have done if living.

One of the daughters then dies, without ever shares? or did the act intend merely to say that descent having had possession, and her share devolves entirely from the purchaser, which had hitherto occurred only on her issue, not as heirs to her, for she never was in the case of an estate tail, and in the case where the seised, but as heirs to her father quoad her share.

We have seen, that, previously to the act, Litt. 164. a.): “If a man hath issue two daughters, and the rule that descent should be traced from the puris disseised, and the daughters have issue and die, the chaser, whenever it applied, was guided and governed issues shall join in a præcipe, because one right descends by another rule, that the issue of every deceased person from the ancestor, and it maketh no difference whether should, quoad the entire share of such person, stand in the common ancestor, being out of possession, died before his or her place. Why, then, should not the same rule the daughters or after, for that, in both cases, they must of representation govern descent, now that the rule make themselves heirs to the grandfather which was tracing descent from the purchaser has become applicalast seised, and, when the issues have recovered, they ble to every case? Had any modification been intended are coparceners, and one præcipe shall lie against to be made of so important a rule for tracing descent them." "It maketh no difference," says Lord Coke, from a purchaser, as the rule that the issue, and the “whether the common ancestor, being out of possession, issue alone, represent their ancestor, surely the act would died before the daughters or after." Lord Coke is cer- not have been silent on the subject. A rule of law cleartainly not here speaking of the shares which the issue ly continues in force until it be repealed. No repeal would take; but, had any difference in the quantity of has taken place of the rule, that, in tracing descent their shares been made by the circumstance of the from a purchaser, the issue shall always stand in the daughters surviving their father, it seems strange that place of their ancestor. It is submitted, therefore, that 60 accurate a writer as Lord Coke should not “ herein” this rule is now in full operation; and that, although have “noted a diversity.” The descent is traced to the in every case descent is now traced from the purchaser, issue of the daughters not from the daughters, but yet the tracing of such descent is still governed by from their father, the common grandfather of the issue. the rules to which the tracing of descent from purOn the decease of one daughter, therefore, on the theory chasers was in former times invariably subject.

Lord Coke, however, son deceased shall, in all cases, represent their ancestor; remarks no difference whether the father died before or for it is argued that the issue still take one-fourth by after his daughters. Surely, then, he never could have representation, notwithstanding that the other fourth imagined that so great an inequality in the shares could goes to the surviving sister, who constitutes, together have been produced by so mere an accident.
