This chapter examines the law of torts related to nuisance in England during the Tudor period. The medieval concept of nuisance was so closely associated with the law of real property that it was regarded as analogous to disseisin and remedied by the assize. This practice only changed around 1500. This chapter discusses specific cases of nuisance filed during this period and analyses the legal bases of court; decisions.
