Court of Piepoudre

Court of Piepoudre
/kort av paypowdar/
(Court of Piepoudre Also spelled Pipowder, Pie Powder, Py-Powder, Piedpoudre, etc.)
The lowest (and most expeditious) of the courts of justice known to the older law of England. It is supposed to have been so called from the dusty feet of the suitors. It was a court of record incident to every fair and market, was held by the steward, and had jurisdiction to administer justice for all commercial injuries and minor offenses done in that same fair or market (not a preceding one). An appeal lay to the courts at Westminster. This court long ago fell into disuse. 3 Bl.Comm. 32
