THE STATUTES OF LIMITATIONS.

INTRODUCTORY CHAPTER.

a

The object of this treatise is to consider the way in which the rights of parties in actions, both at law and in equity, and titles to real property, are affected by the various Statutes of Limitations now in force. This treatise, from its nature, necessarily deals with almost every right that can become the subject of litigation; these rights, and the remedies by which they can be enforced, are dealt with in such varied combinations in the principal Statutes of Limitations and the amending and modifying Acts, that a clear and systematic arrangement of the subject is very difficult. The different parts of the subject are dealt with in the following order:

I. The statute 21 Jac. I. c. 16 provides limitations for most personal actions in England, founded on simple contract or tort. These limitations and the provisions of the later statutes which modify them, and the corresponding enactments which apply to Ireland, form the subject of Part I.

II. The statute 3 & 4 Wm. IV. c. 12 provides limitations for certain personal actions in England (chiefly actions on specialties) which are not included in the statute of James. These limitations and the corresponding Irish Acts form the subject of Part II.

III. Part III. deals with the limitations that affect

B

the recovery of money charged on land, the principal enactments on this subject being the 42nd section of 3 & 4 Wm. IV. c. 27 and the 8th section of 37 & 38 Vict. c. 57, which has taken the place of the 40th section of 3 & 4 Wm. IV. c. 27.

IV. Part IV. treats of the general principles of equity that apply to the subject-matter of the preceding parts.

V. Part V. treats of the limitations that affect the recovery of and the title to real property. The law on this subject is comprised in the remaining sections of 3 & 4 Wm. IV. c. 27 as amended by 37 & 38 Vict. c. 57.

VI. Part VI. deals with the limitations attached to penal actions.

VII. Part VII. deals with the limitations that affect the rights of the Crown, and with certain proceedings in Crown practice.

VIII. Part VIII. treats of the proper mode of pleading the various statutes and of the process which amounts to the commencement of an action so as to save the bar of the statutes.

IX. Part IX. treats of miscellaneous limitations under various Acts.

PART 1.

SIMPLE CONTRACTS AND TORTS.
