  • Black's Law Dictionary: 2nd Edition

    In old English law, this term, when used with reference to a particular city, designated any person who was not an inhabitant of that city. According to later usage, it denotes a person who is not a citizen or subject of the state or country of which mention ls made or any one owing allegiance to a foreign state or sovereign. For the distinctions, in Spanish law, between "domiciliated" and "transient" foreigners, see Yates v. lams, 10 Tex. 168.
