- An old English measure of wheat in London containing 9 bushels.
1882: ...1 Hen. V, cap. 10... This statute also denounces the London falt, which contained nine bushels, and a practice which had grown up in the city of making sellers of corn not only submit to this extra measure, but to a tax for measuring corn. — James Edwin Thorold Rogers, A History of Agriculture and Prices in England, Volume 4, p. 205.
