I have got a crazy uncle, a brother of uncle Richard, who is heir-at-law if a will is not forthcoming.
And then I had rights in this matter—am I not his heir-at-law?
No will had been made leaving the estate to him, and his namesake would be the heir-at-law.
Through your mother you stand next in the line—are heir-at-law, you see.
The heir-at-law was well inclined to it, but melancholy, so that the people dare not trust to a settlement from him.
He made no codicils and left no debts, so the King got all as heir-at-law.
Barthorpe Herapath is without doubt the heir-at-law of his deceased uncle, Jacob Herapath.
No will had been found, and the son succeeded as heir-at-law.
If he dies intestate it goes to his heir-at-law, and if he devises the estate it goes to the devisee.
He does not look much like a man who might play into the hands of an heir-at-law, does he?
