 for rules
From Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  RULES, English law. The rules of the King's Bench and Fleet are certain 
  limits without the actual walls of the prisons, where the prisoner, on 
  proper security previously given to the marshal of the king's bench, or 
  warden of the fleet, may reside; those limits are considered, for all legal 
  and practical purposes, as merely a further extension of the prison walls. 
       2. The rules or permission to reside without the prison, may be 
  obtained by any person not committed criminally; 2 Str. R. 845; nor for 
  contempt Id. 817; by satisfying the marshal or warden of the security with 
  which he may grant such permission.
