  Exchequer \Ex*cheq"uer\, n. [OE. escheker, OF. eichekier, fr.
     LL. scaccarium. See {Checker}, {Chess}, {Check}.]
     1. One of the superior courts of law; -- so called from a
        checkered cloth, which covers, or formerly covered, the
        table. [Eng.]
        [1913 Webster]
     Note: The exchequer was a court of law and equity. In the
           revenue department, it had jurisdiction over the
           proprietary rights of the crown against subjects; in
           the common law department, it administered justice in
           personal actions between subject and subject. A person
           proceeding against another in the revenue department
           was said to exchequer him. The judges of this court
           were one chief and four puisne barons, so styled. The
           Court of Exchequer Chamber sat as court of error in
           which the judgments of each of the superior courts of
           common law, in England, were subject to revision by the
           judges of the other two sitting collectively. Causes
           involving difficult questions of law were sometimes
           after argument, adjourned into this court from the
           other courts, for debate before judgment in the court
           below. Recent legislation in England (1880) has
           abolished the Court of Exchequer and the Court of
           Exchequer Chamber, as distinct tribunals, a single
           board of judiciary, the High Court of Justice, being
           established for the trial of all classes of civil
           cases. --Wharton.
           [1913 Webster]
     2. The department of state having charge of the collection
        and management of the royal revenue. [Eng.] Hence, the
        treasury; and, colloquially, pecuniary possessions in
        general; as, the company's exchequer is low.
        [1913 Webster]
     {Barons of the exchequer}. See under {Baron}.
     {Chancellor of the exchequer}. See under {Chancellor}.
     {Exchequer bills} or {Exchequer bonds} (Eng.), bills of
        money, or promissory bills, issued from the exchequer by
        authority of Parliament; a species of paper currency
        emitted under the authority of the government, and bearing

  Chancellor \Chan"cel*lor\, n. [OE. canceler, chaunceler, F.
     chancelier, LL. cancellarius chancellor, a director of
     chancery, fr. L. cancelli lattices, crossbars, which
     surrounded the seat of judgment. See {Chancel}.]
     A judicial court of chancery, which in England and in the
     United States is distinctively a court with equity
     [1913 Webster]
     Note: The chancellor was originally a chief scribe or
           secretary under the Roman emperors, but afterward was
           invested with judicial powers, and had superintendence
           over the other officers of the empire. From the Roman
           empire this office passed to the church, and every
           bishop has his chancellor, the principal judge of his
           consistory. In later times, in most countries of
           Europe, the chancellor was a high officer of state,
           keeper of the great seal of the kingdom, and having the
           supervision of all charters, and like public
           instruments of the crown, which were authenticated in
           the most solemn manner. In France a secretary is in
           some cases called a chancellor. In Scotland, the
           appellation is given to the foreman of a jury, or
           assize. In the present German empire, the chancellor is
           the president of the federal council and the head of
           the imperial administration. In the United States, the
           title is given to certain judges of courts of chancery
           or equity, established by the statutes of separate
           States. --Blackstone. Wharton.
