It was the duty of the ealdorman to raise a fyrd within his shire when the king needed it. Men who shirked their duties as part of the fyrd were subject to a fine, which varied according to the man's individual standing and wealth.
When they weren't fighting or preparing to fight, members of the fyrd lived ordinary lives, working on their farms or at a skill to support their families.
Eventually, use of the fyrd diminished and was replaced by calling upon thegns and their retainers, but even after the Norman Conquest they were occasionally used for defensive purposes [Melissa Snell, About.com Guide].
Also Known As: here
When William the Conqueror prepared to invade England, he waited so long for the weather conditions to be optimum for crossing the English Channel that King Harold had to disband the fyrd and let the men return to their farms.

22. Utware = A grant of land by the King from the public land
23. thegn (thane) = A lord who held his land directly from the king in return for military service in time of war.
Thegn Definition: In Anglo-Saxon England, a thegn was a lord who held his land directly from the king in return for military service in time of war. Thegns could earn their titles and lands or inherit them. Initially, the thegn ranked below all other Anglo-Saxon nobility; however, with the proliferation of thegns came a subdivision of the class. There were "king's thegns," who held certain privileges and answered only to the king, and inferior thegns that served other thegns or bishops.
By a law of Ethelred II, the 12 senior thegns of any given hundred acted as a judicial committee that determined whether or not a suspect should be officially accused of a crime. This was evidently a very early precursor to the modern grand jury.
The power of thegns declined after the Norman Conquest, when lords of the new regime took control of most lands in England. The term thane persisted in Scotland until the 1400s in reference to a hereditary tenant of the crown who did not serve in the military [Melissa Snell, About.com Guide].
Alternate Spellings: thane
King Ethylgrihn called on his thegns to help defend against a Viking invasion.

24. Hundred Definition: A hundred was a unit of local government in medieval England. A subdivision of a shire, the hundred was, initially, a collection of 100 hides. The term persisted, even though a hundred rarely consisted of that exact number of hides. The first recorded use of the term was made during the reign of King Edmund in the mid-10th century, though according to an anonymous Ordinance of the Hundred in the late 10th century, it had been established long before.
Each hundred had a court that met once a month, usually in the open air, at a wellpublicized time and place. There both criminal matters and private disputes were settled. In its earliest incarnation, all residents of the hundred were expected to attend the hundred court, but over the centuries attendance was restricted to the tenants of specific lands. Regular attendants acted as judges, except when the sheriff filled the role on his twice-yearly visits. Gradually, private lords took control of hundred courts.
Crimes committed within a hundred during the Middle Ages were the responsibility of its residents. If the criminal were not found, they were responsible for making financial reparations [Melissa Snell, About.com Guide].
Also Known As: Wapentake (in areas settled by the Danes) and Ward (in the far north of England).
When the hundred court met in October, Tom was tried for stealing John's best pig.

25. Hide Definition: A hide is a unit of land, the size of which has varied over the course of English history. In Anglo-Saxon England, a hide was an amount of land considered sufficient to support a single peasant family. Like the acre, this could vary depending on the soil and terrain. The hide was the earliest known land measurement to be used as the basis of taxation in England, and it was also used as the basis for mustering the Anglo-Saxon militia, the fyrd.
After the Norman Conquest, the hide continued to be used as the basis for taxation.
In the 12th and 13th centuries, a hide was specifically defined as 120 acres. This is generally much more than is necessary to support the average family; it has been theorized that by this time peasant families usually held no more than a quarter of a hide [Melissa Snell, About.com Guide].
The people in Tom's village worked the land on seven hides.
The powerful Stubbons family had an entire hide to themselves.

Use of the term was usually restricted to members of a royal family, and in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle it is used almost exclusively for members of the royal house of Wessex. It was occasionally used after the Norman Conquest to designate members of the royal family—e.g., William the Aetheling, son and heir of King Henry I.
The earlier part of the word formed part of the name of several Anglo-Saxon kings—e.g., Aethelbert, Aethelwulf, Aethelred—and was used obviously to indicate their noble birth.... [Encyclopdia Britannica "Aetheling." Encyclopdia Britannica. 2010. Encyclopdia Britannica Online. 16 Sep. 2010 http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/7576/Aetheling] AETHELING, an Anglo-Saxon word compounded of aethele, or ethel, meaning noble, and ing, belonging to, and akin to the modern German words Adel, nobility, and adelig, noble. During the earliest years of the Anglo-Saxon rule in England the word was probably used to denote any person of noble birth. Its use was, however, soon restricted to members of a royal family, and in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle it is used almost exclusively for members of the royal house of Wessex. It was occasionally used after the Norman Conquest to designate members of the royal family. The earlier part of the word formed part of the name of several AngloSaxon kings, e.g. AEthelbert, AEthelwulf, AEthelred, and was used obviously to indicate their noble birth. According to a document which probably dates from the 10th century, the wergild of an aetheling was fixed at 15,000 thrymsas, or 11,250 shillings. This wergild is equal to that of an archbishop and one-half of that of a king [LoveToKnow 1911 http://www.1911encyclopedia.org/Aetheling].

As well as having spiritual jurisdiction over the diocese of Durham, the bishops of Durham retained temporal jurisdiction over County Durham until 1836. The bishop's mitre which crowns the bishop of Durham's coat of arms is encircled with a gold coronet which is otherwise used only by dukes, reflecting his historic dignity as a palatine earl.
Lancashire was made a county, or duchy, palatine in 1351 and kept many of its special judicial privileges until 1873. Although the dukedom of Lancaster merged into the Crown in 1399, it is to this day held separate from other royal lands, and managed by the Duchy of Lancaster. The title of Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster is still used by a member of the cabinet. In Lancashire, the loyal toast is to "the Queen, Duke of Lancaster."
The king's writs did not run in these three palatine counties until the nineteenth century and, until the 1970s, Lancashire and Durham had their own courts of chancery.
There are two kings in England, namely, the lord king of England wearing a crown and the lord bishop of Durham wearing a mitre in place of a crown… —William de St Botolph, 1302 Other palatine counties
