They were not necessarily all found within one *manor or vill but could be within neighbouring land. *Bracton, using the Latin word pertinentia, was clear that in land claims appurtenances must be specified: 'the demandant must at the outset describe the thing he claims, . . . that it may be known whether he claims land or a rent or a *tenement with the appurtenances . . . or without.' [< OldFr. apartenance < Lat. pertineo = to concern, pertain to]
