A demesne, especially the Ancient demesne claimed by William the Conqueror.
Samuel Johnson's Dictionary
Demain, Demean, Demesnenoun
That land which a man holds originally of himself, called dominium by the civilians, and opposed to feodum or fee, which signifies those that are held of a superior lord. It is sometimes used also for a distinction between those lands that the lord of the manor has in his own hands, or in the hands of his lessee, demised or let upon a rent for a term of years or life, and such other lands appertaining to the said manor as belong to free or copyholders; although the copyhold belonging to any manor, according to many good lawyers, is also accounted demeans. Philips.
Etymology: domaine, French.
