RECONTINUANCE Definition & Legal Meaning

Definition & Citations:

seems to be used to signify that a person has recovered an in- corporeal hereditament of which he had been wrongfully deprived. Thus, “A. is dis- seised of a maunor, whereunto an advowson is appendant, an estranger [i. e., neither A. nor the disseisor] usurpes to the advowson ; if the disseisee [A.] enter into the mannor, the advowson is recontinued again, which was severed by the usurpation.
