The vicar of Gaston, called Cunningham, set a tack of his vicarage to one Valentine, for the space of three years, and from three years to three years, during all the time of his lifetime. It was objected, that the tack was expired by the decease of the vicar, and the tacksman could not thereafter be answered of the vicarage, nor bruik the same by virtue of the said tack. It was answered, that the tacksman was entered into the possession of the last three years, and had bruiked the vicarage the other six years preceding, and so notwithstanding the decease of the vicar, he ought to bruik it for the last three years, the which was found by the Lords.
