This, like ' Rotelei,' is in ' Honesberie ' Hundred. 2 This word is omitted in the text. 3 See note on p. 31 o. It was in ' Stanlei ' Hun- dred. This entry is suspiciously like the previous one, in which the Count of Meulan appears as holding Muitone 2 hides (as here), with I plough and 2 serfs in demesne (as here), and 3 ploughs out of demesne (as here), and 2 mills worth 70 shillings (as here), and a value of 6 pounds (as here), but in several respects differing from the particulars here recorded. However, it is against the one entry being a repetition of the other that the total hidage recorded in the three entries amounts to 5 hides. fThe differences appear to be too great for duplicate entries. Compare Introduction, p. 296. -J.H.R.) 4 It will be remembered that the former entry relating to Myton states that the z-hide estate in it had been held T.R.E. by Earl Algar. This and the ubsequent entry speak of its tenure by Algar's son Earl Edwin.
