Webster (1913) Definition: Fix"ture (f[i^]ks"t[-u]r; 135), n. [Cf. Fixure.]
1. That which is fixed or attached to something as a
permanent appendage; as, the fixtures of a pump; the
fixtures of a farm or of a dwelling, that is, the articles
which a tenant may not take away.

2. State of being fixed; fixedness.

The firm fixture of thy foot. --Shak.

3. (Law) Anything of an accessory character annexed to houses
and lands, so as to constitute a part of them. This term
is, however, quite frequently used in the peculiar sense
of personal chattels annexed to lands and tenements, but
removable by the person annexing them, or his personal
representatives. In this latter sense, the same things may
be fixtures under some circumstances, and not fixtures
under others. --Wharton (Law Dict.). --Bouvier.

Note: This word is frequently substituted for fixure
(formerly the word in common use) in new editions of
old works.
