THE HOLDERS OF LANDS From W(illiam), Ailmar holds 2 hides in CINTONE [? Kington 1 in Bickenhill and Solihull]. 2 There is land for 2 ploughs. There are 5 villeins who have them. Wood- (land) half a league long and 4 furlongs broad. It was and is worth 10 shillings. Turchil held it freely T.R.E. From W(illiam), Juhell holds 1 hides in SECHINTONE [Seckington]. There is land for 4 ploughs. In the demesne is i ; and (there are) 6 villeins and 4 bordars with 2 ploughs. There are acres of meadow. It was and is worth 30 shillings. Ernui held it. From W(illiam), Ordric holds 2 hides in WITSCAGA [Wishaw]. 3 There is land for 2 ploughs. There are 3 villeins with a priest and 4 bordars. Wood(land) 3 furlongs long and i broad. It was worth 30 shillings; now 10 shillings. The same Ordric held it freely. IN MERETON [MARTON] HUNDRET From W(illiam), Roger holds i hide in HODENELLE [Hodnell]. (There is land for) 4 i plough. It is there with 2 villeins and 2 bordars. There are 6 acres of meadow. It was worth 10 shillings; now 2O shillings. Alwi held it freely. From W(illiam), Osmund holds 2 hides in HUNINGEHAM [Hunningham]. 6 There is land for 4 ploughs. In the demesne is i, and 2 serfs ; and (there are) 4 villeins and 2 bordars with i plough. There are 6 acres of meadow. It was worth 40 shillings ; now 30 shillings. Ernewi held it freely T.R.E. From W(illiam), Chetel holds hides 1 Alias Kingsford. J Coming between Amington and Seckington, which are two adjoining parishes in Hemlingford Hundred, I thought that ' Cintone ' would be a neighbouring place in the same hundred, and as Kington, which with Lyndon formed a mem- ber of Bickenhill, is in the same hundred and in Turchil's territory, and is found at an early date in the hands of the Mountforts of Beaudesert, who somehow acquired a considerable portion of the Corbucion estates, I have little doubt that the identification here made is correct. Dugdale (p. 553) seems to identify this 'Cintone' with Kineton, but evidently distrusts (p. 431) his own sugges- tion. (There is however nothing to connect William or his heirs with the above place. J.H.R.) 3 Doubtless in ' Coleshelle ' Hundred, being after- ward in Hemlingford Hundred.

in the same vill [HUNINGEHAM] 8 and half a virgate of land. 8 There is land for 3 ploughs. In the demesne is I, with i serf; and (there are) 3 villeins and 5 bordars with 2 ploughs. There are 6 acres of meadow. It was and is worth 30 shillings. Saulf held it freely. IN STANLEI [STONELEIGH] HUNDRET From W(illiam), Johais holds 2j virgates of land in WESTONE [Weston under Wetherley]. 7 There is land for ij ploughs. In the de- mesne is I with I villein and I bordar. There are I O acres of meadow. It was and is worth 10 shillings. Sawold held it freely. From W(illiam), Roger holds I virgate of land in CONDELME [Coundon]. 8 There is land for i plough. There are 2 bordars. Wood(Iand) half a league long and 4 fur- longs broad. It was worth 5 shillings ; now 4 shillings. IN BERRICESTONE [BARCHESTON] HUNDRET From W(illiam), Johais holds 2^ hides in BERRICESTONE [Barcheston]. There is land for 3^ ploughs. In the demesne are 2 ; and (there are) 5 villeins and 7 bordars with ij ploughs. There is a mill worth (de) 100 pence, and 1 2 acres of meadow. It was worth 40 shillings ; now 50 shillings.

Leuiet held it freely. 6 Honingham (now Hunningham), which ap- pears afterward in Marton Leet, was doubtless in the Domesday Hundred of ' Meretone.' 8 i.e. if hides in all. 7 The identification seems clear, for this Weston afterward appears in Stoneleigh Leet. The vir- gates held here by Robert under Turchil, together with these 2 virgates, make up a i-hide estate, in addition to which Robert also held here an estate of 3 hides less one-third of a virgate under the Count of Meulan. 8 Coundon afterward in Stoneleigh Leet was doubtless in the Domesday Hundred of ' Stanlei.' The one virgate of this estate together with the three virgates held here by the Church of Coventry make it a i-hide place. Mappleborough was, no doubt, like Studley, in ' Fernecumbe ' Hundred. 333
