WARDSHIP, Eng. law. Wardship was the right of the lord over the person and
estate of the tenant, when the latter was under a certain age. When a tenant
by knight's service died, and his heir was under age, the lord was entitled
to the custody of the person and the lands of the heir, without any account,
until the ward, if a male, should arrive at the age of twenty-one years,
and, if a female, at eighteen. Wardship was also incident to a tenure in
socage, but in this case, not the lord, but the nearest relation to whom the
inheritance could not descend, was entitled to the custody of the person and
estate of the heir till he attained the age of fourteen years; at which
period the wardship ceased and the guardian was bound, to account. Wardship
in copyhold estates partook of that in chivalry and that guardian like the
latter, he was required lib. 7, c. 9; Grand Cout. c. 33; Reg. Maj. c. 42.
