The venerable Henry Purslane Chichester, Sir Alistair Chichester’s ancestor, is much remembered in Chichesterton-Upon-Hogg for having wrested Henry’s Bog from the Burlingame clan in 1427. (A diehard remnant of the Burlingames still refer to it as “Burlingame’s Bog.”) Henry’s Bog has afforded abundant game and blood sport to countless generations of Chichesters.

Question: The Bog measures 2.8 square hectares. It comprises three-sevenths of the Chichester estate. How large is the estate?
