English term or phrase: justice
A loose connection between earls and shires remained for a long time after authority had moved over to the sheriffs. An official defining characteristic of an earl was the receipt of the "third penny" of the revenues of justice of a shire. Thus every earl was associated with some shire, and very often a new creation would be made in favor of the county where the new earl already had large estates and local influence.

the revenues of justice of a shire.一个郡的XX收入??它修饰前面的revenues还是修饰后面的shire?
注:Third Penny意为“三分之一的收入”。

Explanation:
You won't find "justice of a shire" on internet but you can find "revenues of justice" (few and quite weak examples). Here's one which I think is most relevant to your context:

"The Revenues of Justice do consist in Confiscations and Fines."

This sentence came out of the blue in that text. But if my guess is right, "revenues of justice" are the money you get from imposing fines, confiscations, etc.
