(there are) 16 villeins and 14 cottars with 5 ploughs. There is a church ; and 5 serfs ; 1 Possibly De Watevile. See p. 33 for Chipstead, which was part of the De Clare inheritance. It looks as if the Earl's tenant had encroached upon the Abbey lands, and then given up his claim. 8 Of Winchester. 3 Not named in the Sussex Survey. De Clare land. There is a church there not mentioned here, which has claims to date from before the Conquest.

  • De Clare land later (Testa de Nevill).

6 A blank in the MS. 6 The manor called Home Beddington. De Clare property. There was another manor called Beddington Huscarle. See 36, b. i below. and 2 mills worth 40 shillings ; and 24 acres of meadow. Wood worth 5 hogs. Fifteen houses in London, which belong to this manor, pay 12 shillings and 3 pence. In the time of king Edward, and now, it (was and) is worth 10 pounds; when he received it, 6 pounds. Richard himself holds in demesne ODE- MERESTOR [Woodmansterne]. 7 Azor held it of king Edward. Then and now it (was and) is assessed for 1 5 hides, but it never paid geld. The land is for 3 ploughs. In demesne there are 2 ploughs ; and (there are) i villein and 12 cottars with 3 ploughs. There are 1 8 serfs ; and a church ; and a mill worth 2O shillings ; and 4 acres of meadow. Wood worth 10 hogs.

Alwin and Lefelm and Cole- man held it of king Edward as 3 manors, and they could take what lord they pleased (potuerunt ire quo voluerunt) . It was then assessed for 15 hides; now for 2 hides and half a virgate. The land is for 5 ploughs.

IN AMELEBRIGE [EMLEYBRIDGE] HUNDRED Richard himself holds of the King I hide, which Almaer* held of king Edward, and he 7 Woodmansterne subsequently belonged to the De Clares. There could be no water mill in the later parish of Woodmansterne, high up on the chalk downs, with no stream ; and wind mills did not exist in England in 1086. See mills at Banstead and Chipstead also. I am informed by Mr. F. A. H. Lambert of Banstead, that the mill was probably on the Wandle at Carshalton, where there seems to have been land counted in Woodmansterne manor, circa 1280, according to the charters in possession of the Lamberts of Woodman- sterne. The 1 8 serfs are the highest number in any Surrey manor. 8 Almar held Long Ditton (see below). This hide was probably adjacent, but in the next Hundred. 316
