1 See note 3 on p. 309.
3 See note 6 on p. 322. We are not now, I think,
in 'Meretone' Hundred, so this cannot be Church
Lawford.
3 I do not feel certain of this identification,
though I think it is more probable than any other.
Robert de Olgi was tenant in chief of a ' Merstone '
in Coleshill Hundred, but it would be rather
strange for one place in Coleshill Hundred to be
inserted among these places, all of which are after-
ward found in Knightlow Hundred.
4 This is the first of eight successive places which
all appear afterward in Stoneleigh Leet and were
doubtless in the Domesday Hundred of ' Stanlei.'
From T(urchil) Hadulf holds in BILNEI
[Binley] 5 2 hides. There is land for 3
ploughs. In the demesne is i ; and (there are)
5 villeins and 7 bordars with 2 ploughs.
There are 2 serfs, and a mill worth (de) 40
pence, and 8 acres of meadow; wood(land) 4
furlongs long and 2 furlongs broad. It was
worth 20 shillings ; now 35 shillings. The
same man held it who now holds it.
From T(urchil) Robert holds in WESTONE
[Weston under Wetherley] 8 i$ virgates of
land. There is land for half a plough. It is
waste (vasta). There are 4 acres of meadow.
It was worth 6 shillings ; now it brings in
(reddit) nothing. Ulwi held it freely.
From T(urchil) Wlsi holds in BRANDUNE
[Brandon] half a hide. There is land for 4
ploughs. There are 10 villeins with i serf.
They have 3 ploughs. There is a mill
worth (de)2& pence, and 16 acres of meadow;
wood(land) 4 furlongs long and 2 furlongs

shillings. Turchil held it freely.
From T(urchil) R. de Olgi holds in LILLIN-
TONE [Lillington] half a hide. There is
land for half a plough, yet I (plough) is there
with 6 bordars and I bondwoman who have
another plough. There are 4 acres of mea-
dow. It was worth 10 shillings; now 20

From T(urchil) Ermenfrid holds in REDE-
FORD [Radford Semele] * 5 hides. There is
land for 13 ploughs. In the demesne are 3
ploughs and 8 serfs ; and (there are) 19 villeins
and 8 bordars with 9 ploughs. There is a
mill worth (de) 6 shillings and 8 pence, and i 2
acres of meadow. It was worth 100 shil-
lings and afterwards 40 shillings ; now 6
pounds. Eduin held it freely T.R.E.
Ermenfrid bought it from Chetelbert by (the
king's) leave (licentia) and holds it of the king
in fee, as the king's writ testifies.
8 See the note (on p. 304) to the previous entrj
relating to this place. The 3 hides there recorded,
with the 2 hides given here, make it a 5 hide
place.
6 I have no doubt of this, for as we have seen
this is a list of places in ' Stanlei ' Hundred. This
Robert is doubtless the Robert who held another
part of this Weston under the Count of Meulan.
As to the total hidage see note 7, p. 333, relat-
ing to William Fitz Corbucion's holding here.
7 I think this is correct, as it was a more impor-
tant place than Radford juxta Coventry, which
also, as Dugdale points out, was doubtless in the
hands of the church of Coventry.
