Areas are given in Acres, Roods and Perches. While acres are pretty sensible measures the others can be confused with linear measures of the same or similar names!

A Rood is an area measuring 1 Rod x 10 chains = 1 Rod x 1 furlong = 5 yards 1 ft 6 in x 220 yards = 1/4 of an acre.
(The linear measure of a rod being the same as a pole or perch = 5.5 yards. = 1/4 chain)
A Perch is also a measure of an area of 1 x 1 rod, pole or perch. 1/40 of a Rood.
For those accustomed to a metric age - 1 Hectare = 2.47 Acres.
