sulung

In the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Kent, and later the county of Kent in England (9th century), in concept the amount of land that could be farmed each year with a single plow. Like the hide and carucate, it was probably not a unit of land area, but of obligation to military service and taxes. Nonetheless, its typical area has been estimated at around 160 acres.

A quarter of a sulung was a juga, or yoke. At least in later periods, the sulung was equivalent to two hides.
