Ouster le Main

English Law: Ouster le Main in the Past

In law-French, this signifies, to take out of the hand. In the old English law it signified a livery of lands out of the hands of the lord, after the tenant (see more about this popular legal topic in the U.K. encyclopedia) came of age. If the lord refused to deliver such lands, the tenant (see more about this popular legal topic in the U.K. encyclopedia) was entitled to a writ to recover the same from the lord; this recovery out of the hands of the lord was called ouster le main.
