Help with parsing, please. 4d: Fed up with banks, head of Exchequer quits (5) T-R-D. Must be TIRED, but why apart from def. 19 ac: Small man defending king for sire. (5) S-A-N. Looks like SWAIN (or SPAWN), but again, why. Actually, SPAWN looks better if you think chess.

Thanks King. Can see the tiered one now. Yes - definitely spawn. Thought a swain might sometimes sire/spawn - but not necessarily so!
