Mise-money

.

An honorarium given by the people of Wales to a new “Prince of Wales” on his entrance upon his principality. At Chester a mise-book is kept, in which every town and village is rated to this honorarium.

Littleton (Dict.) says the usual sum is £500. Bailey has the word in his Dictionary.
