Peculiar - LoveToKnow 1911 (213 words)
PECULIAR, a word now generally used in the sense of that which solely or exclusively belongs to,or is particularly characteristic of, an individual; hence strange, odd, queer.
As a term of ecclesiastical law "peculiar" is applied to those ecclesiastical districts, parishes, chapels or churches, once numerous in England, which were outside the jurisdiction of the bishop of the diocese in which they were situated, and were subject to a jurisdiction "peculiar" to themselves.
The jurisdiction and privileges of the "peculiars" were abolished by statutory powers given to the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, by the Ecclesiastical Commissioners Acts 1836 and 1850, by the Pluralities Act 1838, the Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction Act 1847, and other statutes.

In France, extending royal power led in 1302 to a general assembly consisting of the chief lords, both lay and ecclesiastical, and the representatives of the principal privileged towns, which were like distinct lordships.
But in the second half of the 14th century certain royal taxes, levied throughout the whole of the domain of the Crown, tended to become permanent and independent of the vote of the estates.
