  • South Lambeth, or Stockwell ; for the

manor in Edward the Confessor's charter, confirming Harold's grant to Waltham (quoted by Dugdale), has boundaries which nowhere touch the river. This manor subsequently belonged to Baldwin de Redvers, who held other forfeited lands of the Count of Mortain 's. 8 See 30, a. 2.

  • Possibly at Waddon, in Croydon, which

was granted by Henry I. to Bermondsey in 1127, before which date the lands of the Count of Mortain had been forfeited. 5 See, perhaps, 32, a. 2, under Patricesy. But the i^ hides of the Count of Mortain's there are attributed to another Hundred. This is possibly Ham, in Croydon, called Estham, or Escheham, in i and 2 Philip and Mary, which is on or close to the probable line of a Roman ' Street.' pleased (quo voluerunt cum eis ire potueruni). The land is for 2 ploughs. There are 3 villeins and 3 bordars with 2^ ploughs. In the time of king Edward it was worth 30 shillings, and afterwards 1 5 shillings ; now 43 shillings.

Probably it is only a mistake of the clerks, reading Wochinges as Wodetone, which leads to their being here attributed to Wotton. The converse mistake appears in the case of Ockley. 8 Burgham in Worplesdon parish. The manor came to Robert, Earl of Gloucester, by marriage, and thence ultimately to the De Clares. 313
