Time immemorial was defined in 1276 to be 3 September 1189, the date of the coronation of Richard I; proof of unbroken possession or use of a right from that date was considered to make it unnecessary to establish the original grant of that right. In 1832 this was formally abandoned, and a 20-year rule (30 years in the case of rights against the Crown) was substituted.
Heraldically, time immemorial is sometimes considered to be 1066.
