BEING A TREATISE ON THE
LAW OF TITHE RENT-CHARGE, WITH A SKETCH OF THE HISTORY AND
LAW OF TITHES PRIOR TO THE COMMUTATION ACTS,
THE TITHE ACT OF 1891, WITH THE RULES THEREUNDER.

(REVISED AND ENLARGED).

TO THE SECOND EDITION.
THE favorable reception which has been accorded to the First Edition of this little book has encouraged the Author to take advantage of the passing of the recent Act to issue a second. This has afforded the opportunity to correct a few mistakes and supply a few omissions, which unfortunately occurred in the former Edition. The chapters on rating and recovery of tithe rent-charge (in the First Edition headed “Remedies of Tithe-owner") have necessarily been in a great measure re-written, and the order of the chapters has been slightly altered to make the arrangement more natural.
A Table of Statutes has been added, together with the dates of the Cases cited, in
the hope that this may make the book more useful.
While the principal provisions of the recent Act, and the Rules made under it, are incorporated and considered in their appropriate places, it has been thought advisable to print them as a Supplement, that anyone wishing to see for himself the exact language of any provision may be able to do so. The Scale of Costs under the Law of Distress Act, 1888, has also been added.
