Furrer v Snelling (1220) 38 Michalmass 13 Jac B R Dyer, 55 is a very early contracts and property case, in English law. The case established the ratio that in covenant only damages are recoverable.
The judge found that "in covenant damages only are to be recovered and this surplus in miscomputing shall be abated", and "where more is demanded than is due... the debt only, is to be recovered".
