Acorn4 Folklore: 'frith' a Middle English ramble (32) RE: Folklore: 'frith' a Middle English ramble 26 Jan 19


That would tie in with the Friths to the north and west of Leicester as the whole area was once part of Leicester Forest until various Kings sold off the rights as they became short of cash.

James l was recorded as visiting and hunting in 1612. There is still a place called "King's Standing" which apparently used to be a scaffold arrangement from which he would shoot having become too old or arthritic to hunt on horseback.

A lot of the royal rights were sold off in the early part of Charles l's reign.
