    • Abstract:
      The article focuses on the history of the word "township." In recent historical writing dealing with Anglo-Saxon conditions, a great place has been occupied by the "township. The language commonly used in this connection need not, perhaps, necessarily be understood as meaning that the phenomenon which the writers have in mind was actually known to the Saxons themselves as a "township." It may be said that "township" is merely a modern name which it is convenient to apply to it. Yet, certainly, that language usually suggests that it was under that name that the Saxons knew it. It is therefore of some interest, at least for historical terminology, and possibly for other and more important reasons, to point out that there is no good foundation in Anglo-Saxon sources for such a use of the term. The later history of the word "township" would probably repay investigation. It is certainly not a common word in literature until comparatively recent times and, where it does appear, its old meaning seems often to cling to it.
