The title originated with the Saxons, and is the most ancient of theEnglish peerage. William the Conqueror first made this title hereditary, giving it in fee tohis nobles; and alloting them for the support of their state the third penny out of thesheriff's court, issuing out of all pleas of the shire, whence they had their ancient title"shiremen."
