Doubtless in ' Fernecumbe ' Hundred, as was Coughton Coc- 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.' 3 I take this to be an incomplete entry, the particulars not being filled in. 4 Roger de Montgomery, Earl of Shrewsbury. are 2 mills worth (de) 24 shillings, and 26 acres of meadow.

William holds of the earl in BELTONE [Bilton] 5 hides less I virgate. There is land for 1 1 ploughs. In the demesne are 2 ; ' These were probably the same. 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. 7 This was Rainald de Bailleul. 307
