in consequence of the missive, But what about the *legal inheritor*. I'm confused., penned by Reeba
Because Norland was bequeathed to Henry Dashwood via a "strict settlement," which means that HD is only a "life tenant." The estate is not HD's to dispose of; he only holds it during his lifetime. And while Henry Dashwood is the life tenant, John Dashwood is the "tenant in tail."
