Transmission by formal act or conveyance to an heir or successor; transference; especially, the transfer or transmission of the crown or royal authority to a successor. [1913 Webster] 2. The decease of a royal or princely person; hence, also, the death of any illustrious person. [1913 Webster] After the demise of the Queen [of George II.], in 1737, they [drawing- rooms] were held but twice a week. --P. Cunningham. [1913 Webster] 3. (Law) The conveyance or transfer of an estate, either in fee for life or for years, most commonly the latter. --Bouvier. [1913 Webster] Note: The demise of the crown is a transfer of the crown, royal authority, or kingdom, to a successor. Thus, when Edward IV. was driven from his throne for a few months by the house of Lancaster, this temporary transfer of his dignity was called a demise. Thus the natural death of a king or queen came to be denominated a demise, as by that event the crown is transferred to a successor. --Blackstone. [1913 Webster] Demise and redemise, a conveyance where there are mutual leases made from one to another of the same land, or something out of it. Syn: Death; decease; departure. See Death.
