tutie], both of them being subsequently in Bar-
lichway Hundred, but not in Pathlow liberty.
J This and the two following places afterwards
appear in Barlichway Hundred, and, not being in
Pathlow liberty, were doubtless in the Domesday
Hundred of ' Fernecumbe.'

8 Apparently none of these five places (Frankton,
Stretton on Dunsmore, Wolston, Church Lawford
and Bilton) was in the Domesday Hundred of
' Stanlei,' for all of them, except Stretton, appear sub-
sequently in the leet of Marlon and were therefore
probably in ' Meretone ' Hundred at the time of
Domesday. They are all now in Knightlow Hun-
dred, which has swallowed up ' Meretone ' and
Stanlei ' Hundreds. With regard however to
Wolston, see note i on p. 308.
