3d. That the plaintiffs right, if not be-
-fore taken away or loft, was forfeited and
.dtvelted by Jiha confiication and entry laws
ot this State.

therefore cannot inherit lands in this State.

ihe points mane by trie. piamtiitscoun-.
fel were intended to meet the objection to
a recovery arHing out of the points., relied
on by defendants.
It was faid by them that the revolution
tad no etfeci on private right .; that it oc-ca'fior-ed
only a change o' fovercignty in
he country : that the 25th article of the
Bill of Rights, which fpeaks of the pro-
perty of the foil. being. one atihe.effcnt:aL
rights of the collective body ot the people
had relation only to territorial rights, and
did not affecl the title of Earl Granville;
that in 1744, feveri eighths of the Lords
Proprieiors of the Carolinas having lif.
pofed of their rights and invnunitics to
tne King, the Gtanvtlle family retained
one eighth (hare only, and that divefted of
all its fovcreign appendjges; that they
therefore could be confidcred only as com
mon fubjc&s, whofe property was not af.
feded by the revohition. With refpeft to
the confifcation laws, thy were filent rc
fpe6lingl!iis property ; theeftats of po
thers had been ConhTcaied by name, Hut
this had not been touched : That the law
providing for theentry of lands had, it
was acknowledged,' been confidcred as ma
king this land liable to entry ; but thouph
this had been the guier.il opinion, it was
no proof it was a corrtft one. They
contended it was not, as ihe land had been
already granted, and all granted land is
eip'refsly excepted by this law. Hut ftfp
poling this property had been forfeited ti
t her. by the revolution, or the confifcation
laws, the State had never become feixed of
it by any office found, and therefore could
not legally grant it.-
With refpeft to alienage, Uwas infilled
that as Lord Carteret (tn: prefent plain
tiff) was born a fubjeel of Great. Britain,,
he cou'.d not become an alien to hit fcl-low-fubjicls,
by the revolution-; and as
they cnfidtrcd the grant of the land ia
quediou as void, having been already
granted by the King to the plaintiW, tlie
aft of limitation could not operate in its
