Category:Pinfolds

Pinfolds were enclosures where stray animals were impounded by a person known as a "pinder", who would then be responsible for feeding the animal. The owner was required to pay a levy or fine before the animal could be released.

If it went unclaimed, the pinder was allowed to sell the animal to cover their costs.
