Do you mean with the Manor Farm, like "In addition to having both
lower and upper halls, many French manor houses also had partly
fortified gateways, watchtowers, and enclosing walls that were fitted
with arrow or gun loops for added protection. Some larger 16th-century
manors, such as the Château de Kerjean in Finistère, Brittany, were
even outfitted with ditches and fore-works that included gun platforms
for cannons. These defensive arrangements allowed maisons-fortes, and
rural manors to be safe from a coup de main perpetrated by an armed
band as there was so many during the troubled times of the Hundred
Years War and the wars of the Holy League; but it was difficult for
them to resist a siege undertaken by a regular army equipped with
(siege) engines.[6" ?


I am trying to understand the term and it is entertaining, yet I may
be mistaken.
