IN MERETONE [MARTON] HUNDRET *
From T(urchil) Robert holds in EPTONE
[Napton] s 3 virgates of land. There is
1 The scribe wrote ' c,' inadvertently beginning
the word ' cum.' He then wrote through it thus
jf , the sign for ' et,' realizing no doubt that it would
be improper to record a knight as if he were ap-
purtenant to villeins, bordars and serfs.
a This, with the i hides previously recorded,
makes Calvestone a 2^-hide place ( = half 5 hides).
3 i.e. Caldecote, Caldecote, Lodbroc, Redborne,
Calvestone, Lodbroc, Lodbroc, Rocheberie and
Calvestone. These 9 estates were not grouped to-
gether without reason. They contain exactly 10
hides (i + + i| + i + 2j + J + z + i).
1 This rubrication is unnecessary here, for it
comes in the middle of a list of places in Marton
Hundred.
B I have little doubt of this identification. I
should have supposed that this form of the name
land for 5 ploughs. In the demesne is i ;
and 4 villeins and 5 bordars have 2 ploughs.
There are 8 acres of meadow. It was worth
10 shillings ; now 30 shillings. Eduin held

From T(urchil) Ulvric holds in WILEBERE
[Willoughby] ij virgates of land. There is
land for i plough. The same is in the de-
mesne ; and (there are) 2 villeins with i bor-
dar ; and (there is) i acre of meadow. It was
was simply a clerical error resulting from the collo-
cation of the final ' n ' of ' in ' and the initial ' N '
of ' Neptone,' but the same form occurs a few
entries lower down. Robert has already been
recorded as holding 3 hides 3 virgates in ' Neptone'
under the Count of Meulan. His further 3 vir-
gates recorded here, and Ulchetel's half-hide
mentioned a few entries hence bring up the total
hidage to the constantly recurring 5 hides.
In Wolfhamcote.
