English term or phrase: hallmote, merchet
The book I'm translating deals with England in the XII century. During a hallmote - a kind of gathering to settle disputes and addtend to current issues - a bondwoman wants to buy herself freedom from the lord. He sets the fee - too high for her to pay. She then asks 'the amount of the merchet for a woman who marries'.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the link. You're right in assuming I can find a fitting translation myself as long as I know what a particular term means. The link turned out to be quite useful!!! It's the first time I deal with a book where old times are involved, and certain English realia are pretty hard to understand.
Thanks again!
