The right of presenting, when vested, being a chattel, and it sentation being an established rule that a corporation sole cannot take a where eccle- chattel by succession (Fulwood's case, 4 Rep. 64 a, except by tron dies

for orphanage money will pass to the successor, Byrd v. Wilford, cancy. Cr. El. 464, or in the case of the crown), it follows that, where

an advowson presentative is vested in an ecclesiastical person, and he dies during a vacancy, his executor, or, in the case of a bishop, the crown, and not his successor, shall present. Thus where a prebendary, who had the advowson of a rectory in right of his prebend, died during the vacancy of the church, his personal representative was held entitled for that term: Renneīl v. Bishop of Lincoln, 7 B. & Cr. 113, reversing judgment in C. P. 11 J. B. Moore, 139 ; affirmed in the House of Lords, Mirehouse

v. Rennell, 1 M. & Sc. 683; 7 Bligh, 241. Presentation But when a bishop dies, a church being vacant in his life, the of an advow- crown, and not the bishop's executor or administrator, shall on death of present, taking the void turn as part of the temporalities; and bishop. where a tenant by knight service, in capite, with an advowson

appendant, which had become void in his life, died, his heir within age, the King presented, and not the executor or administrator, who would have been entitled if the land had been holden of a subject : Co. Litt. 388 a. But these exceptions are referable to the prerogative, and do not show that the void turn remains parcel of the advowson; for though the Queen omits to present in the one case till she restore to the bishop his temporalities, or in the other till the heir, being of age, obtain his livery, still the presentation for that term remains in the crown: Fitzh. N. B. 33 (N. 0); 7 Bligh, 280.

Another exception, founded on the prerogative, or rather, perhaps, in analogy with the rule as to donatives, is, that when the Queen dies, leaving a church void, her successor shall present, as she is entitled to the temporalities where the prede

cessor died sede vacante. See 7 Bligh, 308. Appointment These cases of advowsons must be distinguished from other in right of rights of appointment which are annexed to an office, for if a office.

person holding an office, in right of which he presents to another office, dies during a vacancy, his successor and not his executor shall appoint to the office, as in the case of exigenter : Scroggs v. Coleshill, Dyer, 175. The reason is, that it is a personal thing annexed to the judge of the Court who is to appoint the officers of the Court; and if the office becomes vacant, and the judge dies, his executor can have nothing to do with the appointment, for it belongs to the judge to appoint the officers of the Court. The office of a judge is not like an advowson, which is a thing that descends, and is capable of being conveyed from one person to another, and the presentation of which is the fruit of the

The mortgagee of an advowson, whether appendant or in Mortgagee gross, has the legal right to present; but, until foreclosure, a

and trustee Court of Equity will compel him to present the nominee of the must present mortgagor : because the mortgagee can make no profit by pre- mortgagor, senting to the church, nor can he account for any value in &c. respect of it to sink or lessen his debt: Mackenzie v.

Robinson, 3 Atk. 559; Jory v. Cox, Pr. Ch. 71; Hungerford v. Clay, 9 Mod. 1; Amherst v. Dowling, 2 Vern. 401. So a trustee must present the clerk of the cestui que trust : 2 Atk. 483; 2 W. Blacks. Rep. 1053. It is obvious therefore that an advowson can only be made available as a security to a mortgagee, or an annuitant, by means of a power of sale.

(d) This being the rule of law on the subject, ante, p. 466, n., As to proit is mentioned on an honourable principle, that the purchaser viding for may be aware of it, and provide accordingly. When it is promotion of

. probable the incumbent will be promoted to a bishopric, and sometimes when it is not probable, it is usual to insert a provision, should that event happen, to make a proportionable deduction from the purchase-money, to be ascertained by two arbitrators, or their umpire; or to re-pay the purchase-money, with interest at five per cent.

(e) Although under an agreement for a next presentation, Stamp. equity would compel the vendor to present the purchaser's nominee, the agreement does not require an ad valorem stamp: Wilmot v. Wilkinson, 9 Dowl. & R. 620; 6 B. & Cr. 506.
