     pl. of Arch, n.
     [1913 Webster]
  
     Court of arches, or Arches Court (Eng. Law), the court of
        appeal of the Archbishop of Canterbury, whereof the judge,
        who sits as deputy to the archbishop, is called the Dean
        of the Arches, because he anciently held his court in the
        church of St. Mary-le-Bow (de arcubus). It is now held in
        Westminster. --Mozley & W.
        [1913 Webster]
