By the 11th Geo. II., cap. 19, sec. 18, after reciting that not quitting great inconvenience had happened to landlords whose tenants

had power to determine their leases by giving notice to quit given under a power in the the premises, and yet refusing to deliver up the possession

when the landlord had agreed with another tenant for the same; it was enacted, that if any tenant should give notice of his intention to quit the premises at a time mentioned in such notice, and should not accordingly deliver up the possession at the time in such notice contained, he, his executors, or administrators, should from thenceforward pay double rent during all the time he should so continue in possession, to be recovered in like manner as the single rent.

As this statute directs the double rent to be recovered in the same manner as the single rent, the landlord may main. tain either debt or assumpsit or distrain; (Timmins v. Rawlinson, 3 Burr. 1603.) This notice need not be in writing,

* By 17th Geo. II., c. 38, if any person shall be aggrieved by any assessment, or shall have any material objection to any person being put in or left out of such assessment, or to the sum charged on any person or persons therein, he may, giving reasonable notice to the churchwardens or overseers, appeal to the next sessions for the county, riding,

and occupier of lands and tenements in the parish of H., in the said county of S., do intend, at the next general quarter sessions of the peace, to be holden in and for the said county of S., to commence and prosecute an appeal against the last assessment or rate made for the relief of the poor of the said parish of A., for that (or say, " the grounds of my appeal are, that,” &c.] the assessment or rate made for the relief of the poor of the said parish of A. is partial, unfair, unequal, and unjust, for that you have left out and omitted in the said rate or assessment the names of, &c., inhabitants and occupiers of lands and tenements in the said parish of A., and neglected to charge, rate, and assess them, or any of them, for the several messuages, lands, and premises, in their respective possessions or occupations, in the said parish of A., at the time of making the said rate or assessment, and for some time before. And also

division, corporation, or franchise; but if reasonable notice be not given, then they shall adjourn the appeal to the next quarter session after; provided that in all corporations or franchises not having four justices, the appeal may be to the next general or quarter session for the county, riding, or division, wherein such corporation or franchise is situate. And on appeals from rates the justices shall amend the me in such manner only as shall be necessary for giving relief, without altering such rates with respect to other persons mentioned in the same; but if, upon an appeal from the whole rate, it shall be found necessary to set the same aside, then they shall order a new rate to be made, and they may award reasonable costs on either side. By 41st Geo. III., c. 23, all notices of appeal must be served in writing, and served upon two or more of the church wardens and overseers, such notice to specify the particular grounds of appeal; and no other ground, unless by consent of the parties, to be gone into.

The appeal lies to the next session after allowance, King v. Atkins, (4 T. R. 12 ;) for it is no rate till it has been allowed. A notice of appeal, when it is on account of particular persons being omitted, &c., must specify those particular persons by name. (1 Bott. 274.)

that, in the said rate or assessment, you have greatly underrated A. B., C. D., and E. F., for the several messuages, lands, and premises, in their respective possessions or occupations; and because I am not rated fairly and equally, but more in proportion than the several last-mentioned persons respectively are, or ought to have been rated, in respect of the messuages, lands, and premises, in their respective possessions, within the said parish of A.; and because, &c., are overrated in respect of the messuages, lands, and premises, in their respective possessions, within the said parish of A.: And I do hereby also give you notice to produce, at the hearing of the said appeal, the aforesaid rate or assessment, and to prove the due making, signing, allowance, and publication thereof.
