The precise meaning of the word depends somewhat on the subject matter with which it is connected. In some instances, it is used in the sense of "grant," but ordinarily it means to yield; to surrender; to give up. Mayor & City Council v Turnpike Road, 80 Md 535, 542. Thus, a person grants, conveys, or deeds land, whereas a nation transfers territory by "ceding it." The word is also familiar in the law of reinsurance, expressing the act whereby an insurer, by contract known as a "treaty," transfers its risks or some of its risks to, or reinsures them with, another insurer. See cession.
