CENTURY IX. I.
On a monument at Canterbury (Dart, History of the Cathedral of Canterbury, p. 65) Sir Thomas Hardress, Knight, is stiled "Serviens Domini Regis ad Legem," i.e. Serjeant at Law; and this is the common form of expression; see Dugdale, Orig. Jurid. But Mr. Dart translates it "a servant of God and the King." Most ridiculous!
