The same Richard has six hides in the manor of EBSA (Apps Court), 1 which Abbot Wulfwold delivered to him in augmentation of WALETONE [Walton Leigh] as Richard's homagers say. But the men of the Hundred say that they have never seen the King's writ or livery officer who had given him seisin thereof. Nine thegn? held this land, and they could seek for it and for themselves what lord they pleased (cum fa se poterant vertere quo volebant). There are 10 villeins and 6 cottars with 4 ' cot'.' 2 There are 2 serfs ; and 46 acres of meadow. Wood worth 6 hogs. In the time of king Edward it was worth 3 pounds, and afterwards 40 shillings ; now 4 pounds. In EBSA [Apps Court] a villein holds half a hide, for which up till now he has given Richard's homagers 30 pence for rent (de gablo). Now it remains undisputed (remanet quieta) in the King's hand. And Picot holds of Richard in EBSA [Apps Court] half a hide which jElmar held with- out gift of the King ; now Picot holds it because his predecessor ^Elmar held it* It is now worth 5 shillings. Moreover, Picot holds of Richard in Ebsa [Apps Court] half a hide which ./Elmar held in the time of king Edward, and could put under what lord he pleased (cum ea potuit ire quolibet). Now it is worth 12 shillings. John holds of Richard MOLESHAM [Moulsey Prior, in East Moulsey parish]. 3 Alvric held it of king Edward. It was then assessed for 3-^ hides, and now for five virgates. The land is for 3 ploughs. In demesne there is I plough ; and (there are) 7 villeins and 8 bordars 4 with 2 ploughs. There are 16 1 Apps Court, formerly spelt Apse. 8 Perhaps a slip for car' (carucis), perhaps for catagiis (probably the former. J. H. R.). 8 Both these entries must refer to parts of Moulsey Prior. West Moulsey is accounted for below (36, b. ii.). Between 1129 and 1135 Engelram d'Abernon granted this manor to Merton Priory, and the grant was confirmed by Gilbert de Clare as overlord.
