Din dicționarul Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  PURLIEU, Eng. law. A space of land near a forest, known by certain 
  boundaries, which was formerly part of a forest, but which has been 
  separated from it. 
       2. The history of purlieus is this. Henry III., on taking possession of 
  the throne, manifested so great a taste for forests that he enlarged the old 
  ones wherever he could, and by this means enclosed many estates, which had 
  no outlet to the public roads, and things increased in this way until the 
  reign of King John, when the public reclamations were so great that much of 
  this land was disforested; that is, no longer had the privileges of the 
  forests, and the land thus separated bore the name of purlieu.
