A “demesne” is a property to which certain “demesnable” rights are attached. In this estate, the owner and his guests can fully enjoy the “demesnable rights”, such as hunting rights, leasehold rights, tolls, currency rights, fishing rights, etc. The “demesnes” were abolished in 1795 (end of the Ancien Regime).
