Me an Attorney?

Me an Attorney?

«     ATTORN: ATTORN: 13c., Anglo-Fr., "to turn over to another," from O.Fr. atorner "to turn, turn to, assign, attribute, dispose,"; from a  -"to" + tourner -"to turn" (See: turn). In feudal law, "to transfer homage or allegiance to another lord”.

1. To transfer one's obligations to a person to another person

2. To turn over to another; transfer; assign.

3. Old English law, to turn or transfer, as homage or service, to a new possessor, and accept tenancy under him.

4. In feudal law, to turn or transfer homage and service from one lord to another.

This was the act of feudatories, vassals, or tenants upon the alienation of the estate.

5. In modern law, to acknowledge being the tenant of one who was not the landlord originally, but claims to have become such ; to agree to be tenant to a new owner or landlord of the same property.

Hummm , why yes , why YES i do !

but i believe i attorn (atturn) as a Benefit to [wo]man and those of [wo]mankind
