Latin. A heritable right to money. A kind of fee, or heritable right in money, sometimes called feuda nominis. Although there is no proper feudum of money, or of bonds, yet, as a yearly profit arises from money as well as land, lawyers have admitted a quasi feudum in bonds, which gets the name of feudum nominis. The personal bonds here referred to were held heritable after the term of payment was past; but they were made moveable by the Act 1661, c. 32, except as regards the fisk, and the rights of husband and wife. See the case of Gray, 11 Mar. 1859. 21 D. 709.
