Lichten.
 
Belonging to the lich-ground or cemetery. In Chichester, just outside the city walls on the east, are what the common people call the lightnen or liten schools, a corruption of lichten schools, so termed because they stand on a part of the ancient Saxon lich-acre. The spelling usually adopted for these schools is “litten.”   1
