deputy steward

deputy steward
In English law steward of a manor could depute or authorize another to hold a court; and the acts done in a court so holden were as legal as if the court had been holden by the chief steward in person. So an under steward or deputy could authorize another as subdeputy, pro hoc vice, to hold a court for him; such limited authority not being inconsistent with the rule delegatus non potest delegare.
