Define That Term #26

Yesterday's term was defeasance, which is defined as:

n. an antiquated word for a document which terminates the effect of an existing writing such as a deed, bond or contract if some event occurs.

A few good guesses, but none were correct.

Today's term is:

mesne.

No dictionaries, as always, but educated (or creative) guesses are welcome!

oooh, oooh. I feel as though I should know this. It's some kind of medieval term for property. Some kind of freehold with no obligations to an overlord? Aaaargh. I am not quite sure.
