Fief v manor

    Hi there,
    In looking up the differences between medieval fiefs and manors, there seems to be little difference if any. One source suggested that a fief could theoretically hold more than 1 manor, but did this ever actually happen?
    Any Middle Ages experts out there who might be able to clarify?

    My understanding is this is legal distinction. Put simply (and so a little innacurately) the Manor held property and other rights; the fief is only the property held.
