What is REGARDANT?

A term which was applied, in feudal law, to a villein annexed to a manor, and having charge to do all base services within the same, and to see the same freed from all things that might annoy his lord. Such a villein regardant was thus opposed to a villein en gros, who was transferable by deed from one owner to another. Cowell; 2 Bl. Comm. 93.
