The first point to grasp is that this Leicestershire 'hida' was a term which, locally I mean, explained itself.
Just as we have seen the Hundred used in two wholly different senses, so also was the 'hida'.
B and D print this line above the stage direction, omitting hida.
If to a two-shilling geld the hida paid but two shillings, this is a bad, though not unprecedented, case of under-taxation.
This would give a very small value for the carucate, if the hida of this district had six carucates; and in many cases 2s.
