Hides are a unit of land measurement. Rather than being a hard area it instead refers to it's taxation potential, with one hide generating the holder of the land £3 every year. As such, Hides can vary in size but are usually between 60 to 120 acres in size.
Typical manors are two hides in sizes and as such earn the landowner £6 per annum.
- ↑ Note that these are old acres - in modern measurements this would be about 30 acres or 120,000 m².
