The presentation of a candidate for a vacant living in the Church of England was a piece of property like any other, to be bought and sold. This arose because the churches were connected with the villages which they served, and belonged to the Lord of the Manor. When manorial land, which involved an element of mutuality, was transformed into real property, the right to present an incumbent for the church was transformed also . Churches founded later had a different system.
