Tenure
The manner of holding lands and tenements of a superior.
(US Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary)

Do I correctly understand that this definition means: 'The manner of holding lands and tenements that belong to a superior'. I'm asking because I didn't meet in other dictionaries a similar meaning of "tenure".

Thank you.
