HOMESTEAD PROCEEDINGS WHERE

TION OF THE CONSTITUTION THE
TRUSTOR 18 NOT ENTITLED TO THE
HOMESTEAD OPINION OF J LSI ICE
NORTH CAROLINA Superior Curt.
Rowan Coijtt. f
Orston Bradshaw, Plaintiff,
John S. Henderson, Defendant.
The plaintiff above named being duly
I. That he is and has been for many
years last past a citiren of tho Miatc of
North Carolina and until the 26th of
April 1869, a head of a family.
IL That for many years prior to tbe
18th day of January, 1867, he resided
upon aud owned as a homestead iu fea
simple a certain trael of land situate m
Davidson County on the waters of Swear
ing Creek, adjoining the lands of Isaac
Miller, William Hicks and others on tbe
South, tbe lands of William Owen on the
North, and bounded by said Swearing
Creek on the East and the lands of Wiley
and Allison on the West.
XIL Tiiat en tba said 18th day ef Jan
nary 1867 he executed to the defendant
Iu fee a deed for said land in trnst to se
cure the payment of certain debts therein
enumerated with authority if the same
were not paid by tbe first day of August,
1867, to advertise and sell the same at
public outcry and apply the proceeds of
sale toward the payment of the costs of
the trust and the said debts.
IV. That he continued to reside upon
said land as theretofore and aforesaid uns
til alter the 26lh of April 1869, about
which time being in grest distress at the
lossof his wife he came to remain. temnfi-.
tbe plantation in charge af employees.
V. That the said defendant has adver
tised th said land for sale on the 22nd
day of February 1870 professing in his
advertisement to sell the same under and
by virtue of the terms and authority of
said deed in trust.
Vir Tbat on the first day of February,
1870, he commenced a civil action against
the defendant, tbe main object of which
is to obtain an allowance of a homestead
in said tract of laud and to that end that
the defendant be constituted a trustee and
be enjoined from selling, etc.
VII. That he fears aud lelieves that
unless restrained the defendant will pro
ceed to sell said land and thereby eii her
defeat this applicant's homestead right
fetlrerein or so complicate snd closed his ti
tle as to render it almost if not quite value
less ; that applicant before suit brought,
appealed to t lie defendant to postpone the
sale until six months should expire in or
der to enable him tn have a homestead
laid off pursuant to chapter ('XX XI I,
Sec. 10, et seq., of Acta of session 1868
'69, but the defendant positively refused
B tO do. OR8T0K lilt A D.s, II A
JOBsT S. Henderson.
The above is an action in the Superior
Court for the county of Rowan.
The plaintiff applies to me at chambers
for an injunction. The facts which be
states are: "That on the 18th of Janua
ry, 1867, be executed to the defendant in
fee a deed for a certain tract of land of
which be was the owner in fee and on
which be resided and continues to reside
in trust to secure the payment of certain .
debts therein enumerated) and which re
main unpaid, with authority to advertise to
sell tbe land and apply the proceeds to tbe
payment of said debts--that under tba
provisions of the deed the. defendant has
adveitised the land for sale and refuses to
allow the plaintiff a homestead. Under
this state of facts the plaintiff asks for a
provisional injunction. The application
for an injunction is not allowed.
In Hill vs. Hue lor, at the last term of .
tbe Supreme "Court, B3 N. C'. R., it was
decided that tbe Homestead exemption
was applicable to pre-exist'ne debts. At
the present term in McKeathan vs. Mc
Lsod is as baa been decided that tbe Home
stead exemption did not apply where tbe
land had been levied on before tbe adon
tion of the Constitution which provides for
the homestead, npon tbe ground that there
was a specific lein, a vested right which
it was not the purpose of the constitution
to destroy, if indeed it had tbe power.
The case before me falls under this last
ase. 1 here is a specific lein, a vested
right created by the plaintiff's own deed.
It is not stated that the land is sufficient
to pay tbe debts subject to a Homestead
exemption, and therefore that question is
not presented, but it would seem to be
clear that tbe plaintiff would be entitled to
his Homestead, if sacb were the fact.
