CONTINUAL CLAIM, English law. When the feoffee of land is prevented from
taking possession by fear of menaces or bodily harm, he may make a claim to
the land in the presence of the vares[?], and if this claim is regularly made
once every year and a day, which is then called a continual claim, it
preserves to the feoffee his rights, and is equal to a legal entry. 3 Bl.
Com. 175; 2 Bl. Com. 320; 1 Chit. Pr. 278 (a) in note; Crabbe's Inst. E. L.
