['The " butsecarls" stand in the same relation to the "scip-fyrd" that the housecarls occupy towards the " land-fyrd "; i. e. they are the king's standing force, as opposed to the national levies. This seems clear from a passage in Domesday: " quando Rex ibat in expedhione uel terra uel mari, habebat de hoc burgo aut .xx. solidos ad pascendos suos buzecarlos, aut unum hominem ducebat secum pro honore . v. hidarum. "' Chr. P. ii. 239.] Þá butsecarlas (butsa-, v.l. ) hine forsócan. Chr. 1066 ; P. 197, 8, Hé nam of þám buttekarlon sume mid him, P. 196, 7. Hé gespeón him tó ealle þá butsecarlas (-karlas) of Hæstingan, 1052; P. 178, 25. [v. N. E. D. bus-carl, buss: Icel. buza a kind of ship.]
