AGISTOR. " An officer that takes in cattle of strangers to feed in a forest, and receives for the king's use such tack-money as becomes due upon that account." The office is held by letters patent; and four agistors are appointed to every forest where his majesty has any pannage, or swine's food. They are also called in English" Guest-takers,"or " Gisttakers."
