  Knight service \Knight" serv"ice\Also Knight's service \Knight's
  service\n.
     1. (Feud. Law) The military service by rendering which a
        knight held his lands.
  
     2. (Eng. Feud. Law) A tenure of lands held by knights on
        condition of performing military service. See Chivalry,
        n., 4.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              By far the greater part of England [in the 13th
              century] is held of the king by knight's service. .
              . . In order to understand this tenure we must form
              the conception of a unit of military service. That
              unit seems to be the service of one knight or fully
              armed horseman (servitium unius militis) to be done
              to the king in his army for forty days in the year,
              if it be called for. . . . The limit of forty days
              seems to have existed rather in theory than
              practice.                             --Pollock &
                                                    Mait.
        [Webster 1913 Suppl.]
  
     3. Service such as a knight can or should render; hence, good
        or valuable service.
        [Webster 1913 Suppl.]
