Robert de Watevile holds of Richard a manor 1 which Azor held of king Edward. It was then assessed for 14 hides; now for 2 hides. The land is for 4 ploughs. In demesne there are 2 ploughs ; and (there are) 1 1 villeins and 7 bordars with 3 ploughs. Wood (worth) 5 hogs from the pannage. There is a church.

It was then assessed for 10 hides ; now for 2 hides. The land is for 4 ploughs. In demesne there are 2 ; and (there are) 1 1 villeins and 7 bordars with 4 ploughs. There is a church, and 3 serfs. In the time of king Edward and now it (was and) is worth 7 pounds. When he received it, 4 pounds. The same Robert holds of Richard FERLEGA 1 Probably Warlingham, but possibly Cater- ham. Ralph, Earl of Stafford, who had married the daughter of one of the co-heiresses of the De Clares, representatives of Richard de Tone- brige, died in 1372 seised, inter alia, of the fee of Caterham and of Porkele in Caterham parish. But in the reign of king John, Roger de Gaist had a manor of Caterham, and gave the church of St. Leonard at Caterham to the abbey of Waltham (charter cited in Dugdale). The church at Caterham was afterwards known as St. Lawrence. William de Watvile, and Robert his son, gave the manor of Warlingham to the Priory of Bermondsey in 1144, and William or Robert de Watvile, with the consent of his sons, the churches of Warlingham and Chelsham to the same Priory in 1158 (Dugdale). This distinct connexion of the De Watviles with Warlingham makes it more probable that this nameless manor is Warling- ham. But the fact that the De Clares were overlords of all three places Chelsham, Caterham and Warlingham makes the identification uncertain, but less important.
