Strona 27 - Such was the tenure by grand serjeanty, per magnum servitium, whereby the tenant was bound, instead of serving the king generally in his wars, to do some special honorary service to the king in person ; as to carry his banner, his sword, or the like ; or to be his butler, champion, or other officer at his coronation. It was in most other respects like knight-service ; only he was not bound to pay aid, or escuage, and, when tenant by knight-service paid five pounds for a relief...
Strona 217 - To disperse our cares away. Ever charming, ever new, When will the landscape tire the view ! The fountain's fall, the river's flow, The woody valleys, warm and low; The windy summit, wild and high, Roughly rushing on the sky ! The pleasant seat, the ruin'd tower, The naked rock, the shady bow'r ; The town and village, dome and farm, Each give to each a double charm, As pearls upon an Ethiop's arm.

Strona 25 - Base services were such as were fit only for peasants, or persons of a servile rank ; as to plough the lord's land, to make his hedges, to carry out his dung, or other mean employments.
Strona 28 - Cop. §. 52. of cuftoms that prevail in different manors, with regard both to the defcent of the eftates, and the privileges belonging to the tenants.
Strona 28 - They could not leave their lord without his permission : but if they ran away, or were purloined from him, might be claimed and recovered by action, like beasts or other chattels.
Strona 26 - Secondly, where the service was not only free, but also certain, as by fealty only, by rent and fealty, &c., that tenure was called liberum socagium, or free socage. These were the only free holdings or tenements; the others were villenous or servile: as, thirdly, where the service was base in its nature, and uncertain as to time and quantity, the tenure was purum villenagium (absolute or pure villenage).
