In the state-land states, for the most part, the "metes and bounds" measurement system was employed, while in the federal-land states, the "Township and Range" method was used.
The metes and bounds approach to measuring land is as old as the colonies and was so deeply ingrained in those areas that it would have been impossible to try to convert them to using the Township and Range system, which is far easier to understand and use, once the principles are mastered.
With that basic understanding of what is involved in the metes and bounds system, we now turn to the Township and Range method of land measurement and description as used in the federal-land states.

 45 Wn.2d 332, BEN L. FOWLER et al., Appellants, v. EDWARD B. TARBET et al., Respondents
As a general rule, a metes and bounds description in a conveyance of real estate is controlling as against a conflicting quantity description, and the metes and bounds description is construed as if it stood alone and the quantity description is treated as surplusage.
Obviously, this resolution of the problem rests upon an assumption that the reference to "2 acres in width (east and west)," is a definite measurement and is adequate as a significant and controlling part of an effective metes and bounds description, which, as a whole, is controlling as against the quantity reference of 8.95 acres.
That portion of the metes and bounds description in the Fowlers' deed which reads, "2 acres in width (east and west)," has a clear and definite meaning only if the term "acre" is construed to mean the distance along one side of a square acre, or 208.7 feet.
