1 Shrewley being afterward in Barlichway Hun-
dred but not in Pathlow Liberty was probably in the
Domesday Hundred of ' Fernecumbe.' But as this
seems to be a list of places in ' Fexhole ' Hundred,
and as Shrewley is not far from the Kineton Hun-
dred 'nook' mentioned in the next note, it is just
possible that it also was in ' Fexhole ' Hundred.
(Mr. Walker considers that it was.)
2 Lapworth, Packwood and Tanworth, forming
what should be the northern point of Barlichway
Hundred, are all in Kineton Hundred. Dugdale
states that Tanworth was a member of Brailes.
Brailes, as we have seen (p. 301), was in ' Fexhole '
Hundred. Probably therefore all this ' nook ' was
in ' Fexhole ' Hundred, which Hundred was after-
wards absorbed by that of Kineton.
1 This concludes the list of Hugh's demesne
manors, and there is the usual slight gap between
this entry and the next, which begins the list of his
subinfeuded manors.
4 These ^ hides, together with the 2^ hides
previously recorded, make Thurlaston a 5 -hide
place. As already stated, it was in ' Meretone '
Hundred.
From H(ugh), William holds 3 virgates of
land in LODBROC [Ladbroke].' There is
land for i plough. There a priest and i
villein with 2 bordars have half a plough, and
(there is) a mill worth (de) 3 shillings, and 3 acres
of meadow. It was worth 5 shillings ; now
10 shillings.
From H(ugh), Robert holds I hide in
ETEDONE [Eatington]. 8 There is land for i
plough. There I villein with i bordar has
half a plough. It was and is worth 10
shillings. Baldeuin held it.
From H(ugh), the abbey of S. Evroul
(Ebrulfus) holds 6 hides and i virgate of land
in PILARDETUNE [Pillerton Priors]. 8 There
is land for 10 ploughs. In the demesne
are 3 ; and 1 3 villeins and 23 bordars with i
Frenchman (frandgen') and 3 thegns have 8
ploughs. There are 1 2 acres of meadow. It
was worth 6 pounds ; now 10 pounds.
Four thegns held it freely T.R.E.
From H(ugh), Roger holds (Q)UATERCOTE
[Whatcote], 7 5 hides. There is land for 5
ploughs. In the demesne are 4 ; and 7 vil-
leins with a priest and 19 bordars have 3
ploughs. It was worth 100 shillings ; now
7 pounds. Toli held it freely.
From H(ugh), the same Roger holds 3 hides
in ROCHINTONE [Rowington]. 8 There is
land for 8 ploughs. There 27 villeins with
a priest and 24 bordars have 9 ploughs.
(There is) wood(land) i leagues long and 8
furlongs broad. It was and is worth 100
shillings. Baldeuin held it freely T.R.E.
From H(ugh), Osbern holds 5 hides in BIL-
LESLEI [Billesley]. 8 There is land for 8
ploughs. In the demesne are 3 ploughs and
8 serfs ; and (there are) 8 villeins with a
priest and 9 bordars who have (habentei) 4
In 'Meretone' Hundred, as mentioned before.
In ' Tremelau ' Hundred, as rubricated in the
previous entry on p. 324.
7 Whatcote, like its neighbour Pillerton, is after-
ward found in Kineton Hundred, and may well
have been in the Domesday Hundred of ' Treme-
lau.' (Mr. Walker, however, holds that it was in
' Fexhole ' Hundred.)
8 Rowington and Billesley, being afterwards
found in Barlichway Hundred but not in Pathlow
Liberty, were probably in the Domesday Hundred
of ' Fernecumbe.'
(The parish of Rowington lies between the
parishes of Shrewley and Lapworth. I am there-
fore strongly inclined to think that it, as they, was
in Fexhole ' Hundred. B.W.)
