It is stated by Coke and other writers,30 that, upon the dissolution of a corporation, land belonging thereto reverts to the grantor, and does not escheat to the lord, and there are-numerous judicial dicta to that effect.31 The view that the land reverts in such a case has been applied in perhaps two cases,32 involving the lands of a corporation of a charitable nature having no capital stock. It has, however, been vigorously questioned whether such is or ever was the law.33 Such a doctrine is not applied in the case of pecuniary stock corporations, which were unknown in Coke's time, and lands belonging to such a corporation or rather the proceeds thereof, are, like other assets, distributed among the stockholders, after payment of debts.34
