3. Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856)
ADDITION. Whatever is added to a man's name by way of title, as additions of
estate, mystery, or place. 10 Went. Plead. 871; Salk. 6; 2 Lord Ray. 988; :1
WUS. 244, 5.
     2. Additions of an estate or quality are esquire, gentleman, and the
like; these titles can however be claimed by none, and may be assumed by any
one.  In Nash v. Battershy (2 Lord Ray. 986 6 Mod. 80,) the plaintiff
declared with the addition of gentleman.  The defendant pleaded in abatement
that the plaintiff was no gentleman. The plaintiff demurred, and it was
held ill; for, said the court, it amounts to a confession that the plaintiff
is no gentleman, and then not the person named in the count.  He should have
replied that he is a gentleman.
     3. Additions of mystery are such as scrivener, painter, printer,
manufacturer, &c.
     4. Additions of places are descriptions by the place of residence, as
A. B. of Philadelphia and the like. See Bac. Ab. b. t.; Doct. Pl. 71; 2 Vin.
Abr. 77; 1 Lilly's Reg. 39; 1 Metc. R. 151.
     5. At common law there was no need of addition in any case, 2 Lord Ray.
988; it was, required only by Stat. 1 H. 5. c. 5, in cases where process of
outlawry lies.  In all other cases it is only a description of the person,
and common reputation is sufficient. 2 Lord Ray. 849.  No addition is
necessary in a Homine Replegiando. 2 Lord Ray. 987; Salk. 5; 1 Wils. 244, 6;
6 Rep. 67.
