On the 9th of June 1405 Chicheley was admitted, in succession to his father, to a burgage in Higham Ferrers.
On the 9th of January 1405 he found time to attend a court at Higham Ferrers and be admitted to a burgage there.
There are traces of burgage tenure at Horsham in 1210, and it was called a borough in 1236.
Since the Conveyancing (Scotland) Act 1874, there is, however, not much distinction between burgage tenure and free holding.
