CHASE. A domain or franchise privileged for the hunting of beasts of game, as deer, fox, hare, &c. It is of a middle nature between a forest and a park: it differs from the former in that it may be held by a subject; and from the latter, that it is not enclosed. A man may have a chase over another's ground, and the owner of the soil cannot destroy the covert for game.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835.
