XIVIn Indictments for Offences committed on the Property of Partners, it may be laid in any one Partner by Name, and others.

And in order to remove the Difficulty of stating the Names of all the Owners of Property in the Case of Partners and other Joint Owners, be it enacted, That in any Indictment or Information for any Felony or Misdemeanor, wherein it shall be requisite to state the Ownership of any Property whatsoever, whether Real or Personal, which shall belong to or be in the Possession of more than one Person, whether such Persons be Partners in Trade, Joint Tenants, Parceners, or Tenants in Common, it shall be sufficient to name one of such Persons, and to state such Property to belong to the Person so named, and another or others, as the Case may be; and whenever, in any Indictment or Information for any Felony or Misdemeanor, it shall be necessary to mention, for any Purpose whatsoever, any Partners, Joint Tenants, Parceners, or Tenants in Common, it shall be sufficient to describe them in the Manner aforesaid ; and this Provision shall be construed to extend to all Joint Stock Companies and Trustees.
