17. Same with intestate

    When any person seized of any lands upon any trust shall have died intestate as to such lands, without an heir, or shall have died, and it shall not be known who is his heir or devisee, it shall be lawful for the said Civil Court to make an order vesting such lands in such person or persons, in such manner and for such estate as the said Court shall direct; and the order shall have the same effect as if the heir or devisee of such trustee had duly executed a conveyance of the lands in the same manner for the same estate.
