SENIOR CORNER — (SURVEY) - A point established and monumented by an approved prior survey.

SENIOR LINE — (SURVEY) - Survey lines created at different times have different standings. The “senior” line would be the line which was surveyed and approved first.

SENIOR RIGHTS — (LEGAL) - The rights which take precedence. The first patent issued usually takes precedence in a situation where a later survey is in conflict with an earlier survey. The first patent issued usually has the superior (senior) right or title regardless of the dates of the surveys.

SENIOR SURVEY — (SURVEY) - The oldest of two or more surveys which fixed the position of the line and is controlling unless officially superseded by a subsequent survey.
