A HISTORY OF SURREY nothing. Ulward for 3 hides. Walter the vineyard keeper for i hide. 1 They did not pay geld. In their land there are 2^ ploughs in demesne ; and (there are) 5 villeins and 22 bordars with 2 ploughs. There are 22 acres of meadow. The whole manor in the time of king Edward was worth no shillings, and afterwards 50 shillings ; now 8 pounds altogether. IN WODETONE [WOTTON] HUNDRED Baldwin holds of the selfsame William MILDETONE [Milton]. 8 Uluric held it of king Edward. It was then assessed for 6 hides ; now for 4^ hides. The land is for 5 ploughs. In demesne there is I plough ; and (there are) 10 villeins and 9 bordars with 4 ploughs ; and 4 serfs ; and a mill worth 2 shillings ; and 2 acres of meadow. Wood worth 9 hogs. From the herbage, 10 hogs. In the time of king Edward it was worth 70 shillings, and afterwards, and now, 60 shillings. In the Hundred of COPEDEDORNE [Cop- thorne] there are 2 hides which belong to this manor.* They are worth 20 shillings. The same Baldwin holds of William I hide at Hanstega [Anstie Farm]. 4 Ordui held it ; and Baldwin holds half a hide at Litelfeld. 8 Alfer held it. These two could put their land under any lord they pleased (potuerunt ire quo voluerunt cum terris suis). There is I plough in demesne, with i bordar. It is worth 1 1 shillings and 3 pence. William himself holds ABINCEBORNE [Abin- 1 It seems as if these 4 men, with their holdings, formerly assessed for 12 hides, were the representatives of the 6 sokemen T.R.E. who survived till Ansculf's shrievalty. If so, modo above is a mistake. 2 Milton, in Dorking parish. In 121012 Simon Fitz-Giles owed one knight's service for Milton, held of the Honour of Dudley. 3 See 35, b. i, under Tornecrosta.

  • Anstie Farm in Dorking parish ; later

in the manor of Dorking. 5 A Littlefield might exist anywhere. It is impossible to identify this one with Little- field in Worplesdon parish, Woking Hundred, half across the county. It is clearly con- tiguous to Hanstega, or Mildetone. In an Extensio of Dorking manor, of 1622, Ladie- field is named near Snookshatch in Milton. The name does not seem to exist now. It may be this place. ger]. 8 A yeoman of the guard (Huscarle) 7 held it of king Edward. It was then assessed for 6 hides ; now for 4 hides. The land is for 9 ploughs. In demesne there are 2 ploughs ; and (there are) 10 villeins and 7 bordars with 5 ploughs. There is a church ; and 5 serfs ; and a mill worth 6 shillings ; and 3 acres of meadow. From the herbage and pannage, 40 hogs. In the time of king Edward it was worth 8 pounds, and after- wards, and now, 7 pounds. William himself holds PADENDENE [Pad- dington in Abinger]. 8 A yeoman of the guard (Huscarle) held it of king Edward. It was then assessed for 4 hides ; now for 3 hides. The land is for 9 ploughs. In demesne there is nothing ; but there are 12 villeins and 5 bordars with 6 ploughs ; and a mill worth 6 shillings ; and 4 acres of meadow. Wood worth 40 hogs. From the herbage, 15 hogs. Of this manor, Hugh, a homager of William, holds 3 hides, with a hall, and (there is) I plough in demesne. The whole manor in the time of king Edward was worth 9 pounds, and afterwards 7 pounds. Now, in like manner, 7 pounds. THE LAND OF WALTER SON OF OTHER IN GODELMINGE [GoDALMING] HUNDRED XXII. Walter son of Other holds CONTONE [Compton]. 9 Brixi held it of king Edward. It was then assessed for 1 4 hides ; now for 1 1 hides. The land is for 10 ploughs. In demesne there are 3 ploughs ; and (there are) 21 villeins (villanus in original) and 8 cottars 6 In 1 210-12 Gilbert de Abingworth owed one knight's service, holding of the Honour of Dudley. 7 I venture on a free translation of Hus- carle, but I am not confident that it is not a proper name. 8 There were 2 manors, Paddington Pem- broke and Paddington Bray, named from later owners. In 1210-12 Peter de Mauley owed one knight's service in Paddington, holding of the Honour of Dudley. This first-named manor is Paddington Bray probably ; for in an Inquisitio p. m. of 33 Edw. I. there appears a mill on this manor. The 3 hides held by Hugh seem to be an additional holding, and may be Paddington Pembroke. 9 Walter Fitz-Other, governor of Windsor, was founder of the family called De Windsor. In Testa de Nevill Compton is among the fees held of the Honour of Windsor. 322
