  • From enfeoffed. Derived from feudal property law concepts (and indeed, deriving from the same word as feudal), enfeoffment (en-FEF-ment) evolved to mean the transfer of freehold title in land to a person.

    In medieval times, landowners who'd been disenfeoffed by their more powerful enemies often faced an impossible task in getting courts to enforce their legal property rights.
