" A number of such acres or fractions of acres with their slight dividing ridges thus lay alongside of one another in a group, the number being defined by the configuration of the ground, by a traditional division among a given number of tenants, or by some other cause.

No one not in the gild merchant of the town could buy or sell there except under conditions imposed by the gild.
