absolute estate:

1. A full and complete estate that cannot be defeated. [1]

     “The epithet absolute is used to distinguish an estate extended to any given time, without any condition to defeat or collateral limitation to determine [i.e. terminate] the estate in the mean time, from an estate subject to a condition or collateral limitation.  The term absolute is of the same signification with the word pure or simple a word which expresses that the estate is not determinable by any event besides the event marked by the clause of limitation.
