yes 12 pouces make a pied, about mile, also that depends from nation to nation, a Prussian mile is certainly different to an English one or a French one (lieu).

As for lieu - also here exist differences - like lieu de poste, I am shure that Robert can tell you more about it.

Usually a lieu was the distance of an hourse march of the infantry, in case I remember correctly almost 4000 m - or 4 km.
