Notwithstanding any law, statute, or usage to the contrary, meetings of heritors for any purpose whatsoever may be called in the following manner; that is to say, on the requisition of the clerk of the heritors, or of any heritor or heritors possessed of lands yielding one fourth part of the total real rental of the parish, as the same shall appear on the valuation roll or rolls then in force, or valued at one fourth part of the total valued rent of such parish, as the case may be; or when he shall himself think such meeting expedient or necessary, the minister of the parish shall cause an intimation of the meeting to be given immediately after divine service in the forenoon, and circular letters containing a similar intimation to be sent to all heritors of the parish at least twenty-one free days before such meeting shall take place: Provided, that where in any parish the number of heritors exceeds forty, it shall not be necessary to send circular letters as before provided, but in lieu thereof intimation of the meeting shall be given by the minister by advertisement in a newspaper circulating in the county once during each of two successive weeks between the intimation from the pulpit before mentioned and the day for which the meeting has been called.
Annotations are used to give authority for changes and other effects on the legislation you are viewing and to convey editorial information. They appear at the foot of the relevant provision or under the associated heading. Annotations are categorised by annotation type, such as F-notes for textual amendments and I-notes for commencement information (a full list can be found in the Editorial Practice Guide). Each annotation is identified by a sequential reference number. For F-notes, M-notes and X-notes, the number also appears in bold superscript at the relevant location in the text. All annotations contain links to the affecting legislation.
