MISE, an Anglo-French term (from Fr. mettre, to place) signifying a settlement of accounts, disputes, etc., by agreement or arbitration. As an English legal term it was applied to the issue in a writ of right; and in history to the payment, in return for certain privileges, made by the county palatine of Chester to each new earl, and by the Welsh to each new lord of the Marches, or to a prince or king on his entry into the country. In its more general sense of agreement the term is familiar in English history in the " Mise of Amiens," in January, and that of Lewes, in May of 1 264, made between Henry III. and the barons.
