Still waiting to get my hands on a 1st ed. of Boundary Law - Karoly
How is it coming along Dave?
I have a huge amount of research material but haven't compiled it yet.
What I have found is boundary flows from Deed (or Map) to establishment. The old 19th century cases pretty much assume every boundary will become established eventually.
Brown and the first half of Skelton deal with Deed rules of construction. Skelton has an establishment chapter, Brown's lawyer buddy contributed an essay which says don't worry about that.
The state line cases are interesting, they lean towards establishment even more than ordinary property boundaries.
The most important thing I have found is there is plenty of support in law for accepting old surveys and uncalled for monuments. Brown said the first survey is subject to collateral attack to which I would add everything is subject to collateral attack even called for original monuments because the intentions of the parties are superior to everything.
Thanks for the update- I know spare time for projects like this is a pretty precious commodity for Grampa who work full time.
Not sure what you are looking for. I have 1st and 2nd edition of CLARK on Surveying and Boundaries. None of the Early Brown's. Have an original Skelton but not the reissue of a few years ago.
