For this reason therefore ' Cestedone ' fol- lows ' Etendone.' 9 See Introduction, p. 280. 10 This was doubtless in ' Coleshelle ' Hundred, being afterward in the Hundred of Hemlingford. 11 These two words are an interlineation. 12 These 5 hides, together with the 2 and 3 hides already recorded, make Cubbington a lo-hide place. 13 See Introduction, p. 279. In the Bucks Domesday (p. 144) Robert (de) Olgi and Roger (de) Ivri hold ' Stou ' of the Bishop of Bayeux. 14 This entry stands at the foot of a page, and is separated by a considerable gap from the previous one. Probably this was done for the sake of be- ginning the important fief of Robert de Statford at the top of a new page. 327
