Thus, where lands are conveyed to a father, “for his life-rent use allenarly,” the force of the expression is that the father's right is restricted to a mere life-rent, or at best to a fiduciary fee, even in circumstances where, but for the word allenarly, the father would have been unlimited fiar.
