Beckets Case

becketh case. R. B. seised of lands in fee, 36 Eliz. levies a fine, &c., and declares the use to be to himself for life, and after to T. 15. with power of revocation, and to limit new uses, and if he revoke and not declare, then the use shall be to the use of himself for life, and after to Henry Becket with power in that indenture, also to revoke and limit new 348 ! BECKETS CASE LAKE, 119. uses, and that then the tine shall be to such new uses and no other, and after 42 Eliz. by ajthird indenture he revoked the second indenture, and declared the use of the fine to be to the use of himself for life, and after to Hon. Becket in taile, the remainder to I. B.-&c. R. B. dies, and T. B. his brother, and heire is found a recusant, and the lands seised, and thereupon comes H. B. and shews the matter as above, and upon that the Kings attorney ,demur-[119]-reth : Bromley and Altham barons, that the declaration, of thp uses made by the third indenture was good, and he having power by the first to declare new uses, may declare them with power of revocation, for it is not meerly a power, but conjoyned with an interest, and therefore may be executed with a power of revocation, and then when he by the third indenture revokes the former uses, now it is as if new uses had been declared, and then he may declare uses at any time after the £ne, as it appears by 4 Mar.

Snig Baron to the contrary, and said, that he had not power to declare 3 severall uses, by the first contract, which ought to authorise all the declarations upon that fine, and then the revocation by the third indenture is good, and the limitation void, and then it shall be to the use of R. B. and his heirs, and so by the death of E. B. it doth descend to T. B. the recusant, and also ha said,; that such an indenture, to declare uses, upon uses was never made, and it would be mischievous to declare infinite uses upon uses.
