mund (m<<schwa>>nd or muund). [Old English “hand”] Hist. A right to protection or

guardianship; a guardian. Cf. MANUS(1).

“Once more we see prerogatival rights growing, while feudal claims fall into the background; and in the case of lunacy we see a guardianship, a mund, which is not profitable to the guardian, and this at present is a novel and noteworthy thing.” 1 Frederick Pollock & Frederic W. Maitland, The History of English Law Before the Time of Edward I 481 (2d ed. 1898).
