[different from preceding word. v. fór-wyrcan (l. for-), and cf. O. H. Ger. furi-wurchen obstruere] ; adj. Unobstructed, without hindrance, free; the term is used of land that after several lives was to revert to the grantor, and seems to render the word immunis in the Latin charters On ða gerád, weorce hé ðæt hé weorce, ðæt ðæt land seó unforworht intó ðære hálgan stowe (the Latin previously in the same charter is: Ad usum primatis in Weogornaceastre redeat inmunis. See also the passage: Tellus episcopali restituatur cathedrae absque ullius controversiae obstaculo, iii. 232, 24), Cod. Dip. Kmbl. ii. 396, 33: 397, 29: 384, 22. (The formula is common in Oswald's charters. See Cod. Dip. Kmbl. i. xxxiii, and Kemble's Saxons in England, i. 312.)
