THE HOLDERS OF LANDS From T(urchil) William holds in LODBROC [Ladbroke] 2 hides and i virgate of land. There is land for 2 ploughs. There are 4 villeins and 3 bordars and 2 serfs and l i knight (miles) with 2 ploughsamong all. There are 2 acres of meadow. It was worth 2O shillings ; now 40 shillings. From T(urchil) i priest holds I virgate of land in the same (ipsa) vill. There is I plough with i villein ; and there are 2 acres of meadow. It was worth 5 shillings ; now 10 shillings. FromT(urchil) Eddulf holds in ROCHEBERIE [Rugby] 2^ hides. There is land for 6 ploughs. In the demesne is I plough and 2 serfs ; and (there are) 1 1 villeins and 5 bordars with 5 ploughs. There is a mill worth (di) 1 3 shillings and 4 pence, and 1 6 acres of meadow. It was worth 50 shillings ; now 40 shillings. From (Turchil) Ulf holds in CALVESTONE [Cawston] i hide. 2 There is land for i plough. It is in the demesne ; and (there are) 4 villeins and I bordar and i serf. It was worth 10 shillings ; now 12 shillings. These 9 estates (terras) before mentioned 3 Eduin held and was able to betake himself (ire) whither he wished. From T(urchil) Goslin holds in BERDINGE- BERIE [Birdingbury] i hide and half a virgate of land. There is land for 3 ploughs. There are 3 franklins (francones homines) with 4 villeins and 3 bordars who have (habentes) 3 ploughs. It was worth 20 shillings ; now 40 shillings. The same franklins (homines francones) held it T.R.E. 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 it. From T(urchil) Oslach holds in FLECHENOC [Flecknoe '] 2^ hides. There is land for 4 ploughs. In the demesne are i ^, and 3 serfs ; and (there are) 10 villeins and 3 bordars with 3^ ploughs. It was and is worth 30 shillings. Eduin held it. From T(urchil) Harding holds in HODEN- HELLE [Hodnell] 4 hides. There is land for 4 ploughs. In the demesne is i, and (there are) 1 1 villeins and 2 bordars with 2 ploughs, and (there are) 20 acres of meadow. It was and is worth 40 shillings. Ulnod held it freely T.R.E. From T(urchil) Goduin holds in the same vill I hide. There is land for I plough. It is in the demesne, with i serf; and (there are) 4 bordars with half a plough, and (there are) 4 acres of meadow. It was worth 10 shillings ; now 2O shillings. Ordric held it freely T.R.E. From T(urchil) Ailric holds in FLECHENHO [Flecknoe 8 ] i hide and half a virgate of land. There is land for 2 ploughs. In the demesne is i ; and (there are) i villein and 4 bordars with i plough. There are 4 acres of meadow. It was worth 20 shillings ; now 30 shillings. Alwin the father of T(urchil) held it. From T(urchil) Gilbert holds in LODBROC [Ladbroke] 3 virgates of land. There is land for half a plough. In the demesne however is i plough and 2 serfs ; and (there are) 2 acres of meadow. It was worth 5 shil- lings ; now 10 shillings. Hereward held it. 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. 321
