ENTRY, WRIT OF. In old English practice. This was :1 writ made use of in a form of real action brought to recover the possession of lands from one who wrongfully withheld the same from the deinandaut.

Its object was to regain the possession of lands of which the demondont, or his ancestors, had been unjustly deprived by the tenant of the freehold, or those under whom he claimed, and hence it belonged to the passcssory division of real actions. It decided nothing with respect to ihe right of property, but only restored the deinandant to that situation in Wiiidl he was (or by law ought to have been) before the dispossession committed. 3 Bl. Comm. 180.

It was usual to specify in such writs the de- gree or degrees within which the writ was broiiglit, and it was said to lie “in the per” or “in the per and out," according as there had been one or two descents or alienstions from the original wronpdoer. If more than two such ironsfers had inloriened, the writ was said to bc "in the post." See 3 Bl. Comm. 181.
