A Treatise on the Statute of Frauds, As it Regards Declarations in Trust, Contracts, Surrenders, Conveyances, and the Execution and Proof of Wills and Codicils
Title continues: "To Which is Prefixed a Systematic Dissertation Upon the Admissibility of Parol and Extrinsic Evidence, to Explain and Controul Written Instruments." The English barrister and legal writer William Roberts (1767 – 1849) was also the editor of an evangelical journal and the first biographer of the religious writer Hannah More. This text explores many legal terms rarely heard in the 21st century such as advowson, estover, piscary, noncupative wills, and so on.
