Quit of amercements. It originally signified a forfeiture or amercement, and is more properly called a mishering, mishersing, or miskering, according to certain writers. It has since been termed a liberty of freedom, because, wherever the word is used in a grant, the persons to whom the grant is made have the forfeitures and amercements of all others, and are themselves free from the control of any within their fee.
