scip-fylleþ the private jurisdiction exercised over a group of three hundreds. The word occurs in a charter of Edgar granting to Bishop Oswald certain privileges connected with three hundreds, where in reciting the request that had been made to the king it is said: 'quatinus posset ipse (Oswald) cum monachis suis unam naucupletionem, quod Anglice scypfylleð dicitur, per se habere.' The grant of the request is then stated: 'Ego Eadgarus Oswaldo episcopo annuo et dono huius libertatis priuilegium . . . ut ipse episcopus cum monachis suis de istis tribus centuriatibus . . . construant (constituant, Chart. Th. 214) unam naucupletionem, quod Anglice dicitur scypfylleð oððe scypsócne, in loco quem ob eius memoriam Oswaldeslaw deinceps appellari placuit, ubi querelarum causae secundum morem patriae et legum iura iure discernantur; habeatque ipse episcopus debita transgressionum . . . et omnia quaecunque rex in suis hundredis habet,' Cod. Dip. Kmbl. vi. 240. The connection between the sense in which the word seems to be used in the charter and the meanings of the two parts of the compound may perhaps be found in the entry under the year 1008 in the Chronicle. It there apparently states, that from every three hundred hides one ship should be furnished to the national fleet, v. Stubbs' Const. Hist. i. 105, and cf. Kemble's Saxons in England, i. 255. The word fylleþ occurs in the compound winter-fyllef, q. v.; cf. also Icel. skip-sókn a ship's crew.

scip-fyrðrung, e; f. Fitting out of ships:--Ymbe scypfyrðrúnga, ðæt æ-acute;ghwylc geset sý sóna ofer Eástran, L. Eth. v. 27; Th. i. 310, 26. v. scip-forðung.

Hwelce tibernessa hié dreógende wæ-acute;ron on hungre ge on scipgebroce, Ors. 1, 11; Swt. 50, 19.
