An account of free tenants ought to begin with freemen, who performed some kinds of predial service. In the counties bordering on Wales we meet with a class called Radknights, or Radmen. The radknights at Deerlmrst, in Gloucestershire, were freemen who, notwithstanding their freedom, did ploughing, harrowing, and harvest work in aid of their lord (G. D. 166): the radknights of Tewkesbury ploughed and harrowed at the lords court (G. D. 163). Other persons, who were connected with the bishopric of Worcester, are said to serve as rustics (173 b.); or to render every custom to the reeve of the farm; or to render rustic work at the deprecation, or request, of the reeve1 (172 b.). The higher services of husbandry were, probably, called prccations because they were optional, or commutable, as far as the free tenants were concerned. Bracton says that Rad-knights attended their lord on horseback. A few Radknights are noticed in Hampshire, at Mapledurham (G. D. 38), Christchurch (38 b.), and Ringwood (39); one at Goosey, in Berkshire (G. D. 59): the rest were in the marches of Wales. In Gloucestershire, and the neighbouring counties, a radknight's usual tenement was about a single ploughland; a hyde, or three yardlands: there were occasionally villeins or bordars under the Radknights. Some radmen in the land between the Ribble and the Mersey were lords of manors, and immediate tenants of the Crown (G. D. 269 b.). 1 Hi Radchenist' arabant et herciabant ad curiam do-mini G. D. 163.
