      What ho, Keith,

      Incapacity in the eye of the law, or created by the law; a restriction
      framed to prevent any person or class of persons from sharing in
      duties or privileges which would otherwise be open to them; legal
      disqualification.

      1641 Termes de la Ley 118b, Disabilitie is when a man by any cause is
      disabled or made incapable to doe, to inherit, or to take advantage of
      a thing which otherwise he might have had or done. 1765 Blackstone
      Comm. (1793) The next legal disability is want of age. c. 1832
      Mackintosh France in 1815 Wks. 1846 III. Of all the lessons of
      history, there is none more evident in itself+than that persecutions,
      disabilities, exclusions all systematic wrong to great bodies of
      citizens, are sooner or later punished. 1832 H. Martineau Ireland 117
      The law has at length emancipated us from our civil disabilities.
      1849 Macaulay Hist. Eng. II. 11 His eagerness to remove the
      disabilities under which the professors of his religion lay. Oxford
