A HISTORY OF WARWICKSHIRE From these the Count of Meulan (Me/lend] has 6 sestars and 5 shil- lings. The custom of Warwic(k) was that when the king goes by land on an expedition 10 burgesses of Warwic(k) should go on behalf of (pro) all the others. (He) who did not go when summoned used to pay 100 shillings fine (emendabaf) to the king. If however the king were going against his enemies by sea (the burgesses) used to send him either 4 boatswains (batsueins) or 4 pounds of pennies. 1 HERE ARE ENTERED THOSE HOLDING LANDS IN WARWICSCIRE i KING WILLIAM ii The Bishop of Chester in The Bishop of Worcester mi The Bishop of Bayeux v The Bishop of Coutances vi The abbey of Coventry vn The abbey of Abingdon vnj The abbey of Burton ix The abbey of Malmesbury x The abbey of Winchcombe xi The abbey of Evesham xn Earl Roger xnj Earl Hugh xmi Earl Aubrey xv Countess Godeva xvi The Count of Meulan xvij Turchil of Warwick xvni Hugh de Grentemaisnil xix Henry de Ferieres xx Roger de Ivri (Juri) xxi Robert de Oilgi XLIJ Cristina.

The scribe having numbered two entries xxxviii did not think it worth while, or perhaps was not permitted, to correct the second entry and the one which followed it, so solved the difficulty by leaping straight from xxxix to xli. 300
