The respondent, in a proceeding to register title, claimed a right of way appurtenant over the land of the petitioner. The tracts in question were separated by a strip of plowed land belonging to a third party and it was argued that, since one terminus of the way did not touch on the respondent's land, the claim should be denied. Held, however, that the way was appurtenant to the close even though the servient estate was not adjacent to the dominant. Jones v. Stevens (Mass. 1931), 177 N.E. 91.
