“In the general case, an heir who succeeds to an estate, incurs by his succession liability for
the debts and obli-gations of his ancestor …. But if the heir succeeding to the estate can take it up
in a different character from that of heir of the last proprietor, if he be alioqui successurus, such
liability is not incurred.” John Trayner, Trayner’s Latin Maxims 38 (4th ed. 1894). [Blacks Law 8th]
