English term or phrase: to uplift
I'm translating the following sentence from a CN2 form:

,,Therefore the Sheriff, in Her Majesty's Name and Authority, Ratifies, Approves, and Confirms the Nomination and Appointment of the said Executors, and Gives and Commits to the said Executors full power as appropriate to take possession of, make up title to, uplift, receive, administer, and dispose of the said personal Estate and Effects, grant discharges thereof, if needful to pursue therefor, and generally every other thing concerning the same to do that to the office of an Executor-Nominate is known to belong: Providing always that the said Executors shall render just count and reckoning for intromissions there with, when and where the same shall be legally required. ''

I'm not sure what ''to uplift'' means in this context.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
