Ann (or Annat)
Ann (Or Annat)
in Scotch law, signifies the halfyear's stipend payable for the vacant half- year after the death of a clergyman, to which his family or nearest of kin have right, under an act of the Scottish Parliament passed in 1672. It is a right that does not belong to the clergyman himself, but to his next of kin absolutely, and therefore can neither be assigned nor disposed of by him, nor attached for his debts. SEE ANNATES.
