NOTES.
ANTURS OF ARTHER.
St. 1, l. 7, 8. Fellun to tho femalus in forest was fredde, Fayre by fermesones, by frythys, and felles.

The Douce MS. reads,

To felle of the femmales, in the foreste wele frythede,
Faire in the fernysone tyme, by frithis, and fellis.

The Lincoln,

To falle of the femmales, in foreste and frydde,
By the firmyschamis in frithes and fellis.

Fellun to tho femalus, i. e. got the scent of, or tracked. Thus in the GREEN KNIGHT,*

The howndes that hit herde, hasted thider swythe,
And fellun as faste to the fuyt. 1425.

The same expression occurs in St. 4, l. 7. If fredde be not an error of the scribe, we may explain it by feared, frayed, frightened.

The word fermysown is also met with in the GREEN KNIGHT.

For the fre lorde bade defende in fermysown tyme
Thatther schuld no mon mene to the male dere. 1156.

The following extract from a deed quoted in Blount Law Dictionary (voce Fermisona) is sufficiently explicit upon the matter of the Fermysones.

Quod idem Hugo et Hæredes sui de cætero quolibet anno possint capere in prædicto Parco (de Blore) unam damam in Fermisona inter festum Sancti Martini et Purif. Beatæ Mariæ, et unum damum
