farm] Hist. A writ or action of trespass to obtain the return of lands or tenements to a
lessee for a term of years that had been ousted by the lessor or by a reversioner,
remainderman, or stranger. The lessee was then entitled to a writ of ejection to
recover, at first, damages for the trespass only, but later the term itself, or the remainder

of it, with damages. This action is the foundation of the modern action of ejectment. See
A writ then of ejectione firmae, or action of trespass in ejectment, lieth, where lands or
tenements are let for a term of years; and afterwards the lessor, reversioner,
remainder-man, or any stranger, doth eject or oust the lessee of his term. In this case
he shall have his writ of ejection, to call the defendant to answer for entering on the lands
so demised to the plaintiff for a term that is not yet expired, and ejecting him. And by this
writ the plaintiff shall recover back his term, or the remainder of it, with damages. 3
