Why I love researching the Common Law

[T]he feoffor might by the terms of his feoffment...make the feoffee his own feudal dependant [sic], retaining for himself his previous relationship with the lord...in [this] case the feoffee does hold of his feoffor, who remains a significant link in the feudal chain, and we have a situtation known as subinfeudation.
