Right of way

Hi -- I'm an Austen-L member who is posting here for the first time. My question -- Mr Knightly says in chap 12 (almost at the end) that he would like to move the local footpath across his property so it doesn't cut across his home field; he thinks it can be done without major incinvenience to the locals.
Does anyone know if there was a law or statute or some kind of legal issue with changing a public footpath? This was after most of the enclosure acts, I believe. Any ideas for where I could get this info?
Also, Mr. Knightly was a magistrate -- is this a justic of the peace or a lawyer?
