No livery shall be sued by any heir, if the tenure be not of the King by knight’s service in capite, or in socage in capite, if the heir be of full age at the time of the death of his father, he shall pay half a year’s value of the land : if the tenure be socage in capite, such heir shall pay relief: if he be fourteen years of age at the time of the death of his ancestor, he shall pay nothing. Where the King has a ward, because of another ward who is the King’s tenant in capite by knight’s service ; and the ward because of ward comes first to full age, he shall sue his livery ; but not where his guardiian has sued his livery before him : but though his guardian has sued his livery before him, yet the King shall retain the land and body of the ward because of ward till his full age. So shall every other lord do who has a ward because of ward ; if he has not the seigniory by a defeasible title : if so, the entry of him who has right shall avoid it : so of a mortgage redeemed, and a seigniory granted upon condition. The heir of the King’s tenant by knight’s service, not in capite, at his full age, after he has paid relief, shall have an ouster le maine. The King’s tenant of lands within the Dutchy of Lancaster shall sue livery, but not for lands held of the dutchy, and lying out of the dutchy. 21 E. 4, 60. 26 H. 8.
