Possibly rond has the same Germanic root as the German Rand, meaning edge, rim or brim. Presumably AR was using it to add local colour, just as he uses dyke to mean a ditch or channel (e.g. Kendal Dyke, Meadow Dyke), while elsewhere in England it refers to the barrier thrown up by the ditch's excavation, e.g. Grimsdyke.
