From Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :
VERAY. This is an ancient manner of spelling urai, true.
2. In the English law, there are three kinds of tenants: 1. Veray, or
true tenant, who is one who holds in fee simple. 2. Tenant by the manner,
(q.v.) who is one who has a less estate than a fee which remains in the
reversioner. 3. Veray tenant by the manner, who is the same as tenant by the
manner, with this difference only, that the fee simple, instead of remaining
in the lord, is given by him or by the law to another. Hamm. N. P. 394.
