    Tenures in general are derived from the feudal (or
feodal) system, which prevailed, from time immemorial in most
of the nations of Europe, and was introduced and
established in England in the reign of William the Conqueror. The
great object of this institution was a ready and efficient means
of national defence. It was founded on a maxim, or
principle, that all lands were originally the property of the
Sovereign, and that all titles must consequently be derived immediately
