An Act for Limitation of Trespass and Ejectment.

Whereas it is doubted whether the Actions of Trespass and Eject-
ment are intended to be limited by Statute of the Twenty First of
James the First, entituled, An Act for Limitation of Actions, and
for avoiding of Suits at Law. And for that these Sort of Actions
are mostly used, instead of the real Actions therein mention'd,
Be it therefore Enacted and declared, by the Right Honourable
the Lord Proprietary, by and with the Advice and Consent of His
Lordship's Governour, and the Upper and Lower Houses of Assem-
bly, and the Authority of the Same, That all Actions of Tresspass
and Ejectment, for the recovering the Possession of any Term, in
any Lands or Tenements, be and are hereby declared to be within
the Intent and under the like Limitation, Rules and Provisoes, as
by the said Statute is directed in the other real Actions therein men-
tion'd. Provided always, That such Possession shall be only by
Seizin and actual Occupation; and that this Act be only construed
to extend to Matters of mere Title, and not to any Differences about
the Boundaries of any Lands in Dispute.
