    Don, I think it would be useful to explain Acres, Rods and Perches.
    40 (square) poles (or perches) = 1 rod (or rood)
    4 roods = 1 acre.
    When I was a kid in England these were amongst the units printed on the back of school exercise books although nobody used any of them except acres then.
    To convert to square metres, see: http://www.realserve.com.au/Calculator/Calculator-Acre%20Rood%20Perch.htm
