Hello everybody!

The land belonging to the 'Lord of the Manor' in England was called his "demesne," or domain which he required to support himself and his retinue.

I'd like to make sure that my understanding is right. The general idea is that 'Lord of the Manor' in England required / needed domain in order to support himself and his helpers.

Please confirm or put me right on that. The source: http://www.medieval-life-and-times.info/medieval-england/index.htm
