## Footnotes

1 | Of Mercia, father of Earls Edwin and Morcar. |

2 | In Buckinghamshire. |

3 | Of Northumbria. |

4 | William fitz Osbern, Earl of Hereford, who died 1071. |

5 | Of Wiltshire. |

6 | These eight virgates reappear in the early charters of Oseney Abbey (Salter, Cartulary of Oseney, i, 3, 5, 6;
Early Oxford Charters, no. 66). They are described collectively in the Cartulary of St. Frideswide's (ed. Wigram,
i, 25) as the 'terra de Ehteard'. Their significance has recently been discussed by Professor Tait (The Medieval
English Borough, p. 89) and Dr. Salter (Medieval Oxford, pp. 8, 9). It seems clear that they represent eight adjacent virgates, or yard-lands, of royal demesne, which were reserved by some Anglo-Saxon king for the formation of
a burh, inclosed with a wall, and divided out into building-plots. At Wallingford, as at Oxford, the site of the
borough consisted of eight virgates—a fact which goes far to prove that these boroughs were contemporaneous.
They probably arose during the period in which Alfred, as king of Wessex, was working in close association with
Ethelred, ealdorman of Mercia, for the defence of English territory against the newly settled Danes of the east. |

7 | Wherever the word 'Hundred' occurs in this folio it is written in capitals and underlined in the MS. |

8 | This is the assessment of Richard's vill of Nuneham Courtenay. |

9 | This name is blurred in the MS. |

10 | This identification is proved by the association of 3 hundreds with the manor. See Introduction. |

11 | The letter 'r' ( = require) is added in the margin at this point of the MS. to indicate that the number of
ploughs is omitted. |

12 | That is, Langford and Shipton. |

13 | See Introduction. |

14 | Three mimims (iii) have been altered into vi. |

15 | 'Episcopus' is interlined. The correctness of the interlineation is made probable by the appearance of the Bishop of Hereford (Robert Losinga) in the list of those who held tenements in the borough of Oxford. |

16 | In the margin of the MS. the figure iiii is set against the account of Thame, and the figure xiii against that of Great Milton. The significance of these figures is uncertain. |

17 | The words 'preter inland' are interlined. |

18 | At this point four minims (iiii) have been altered into vii. |

19 | Blank in MS. Remigius is clearly intended. |

20 | The tenant's name is interlined. |

21 | This sentence is added in the margin. |

22 | In the Rotuli Hundredorum (ii, 724) the two estates combined in this entry are separately described as
5 hides in Little Baldon and 2½ hides in Marsh Baldon. |

23 | A blank line follows here in the MS., and the letters 'r q', for require, are added in red in the margin,
evidently with reference to the condition of the thegns' tenure. |

24 | 'Chentisc' is interlined. |

25 | 'Wadard' is interlined. |

26 | In Bucknell, now depopulated. See Blomfield, Deanery of Bicester, Part VIII, 38–40. |

27 | The word 'idem' is interlined. |

28 | The descent of this manor proves that the Roger was Roger d'Ivry. |

29 | 'Potaria' is added above 'ollaria'. |

30 | This name has not survived. Dr. Salter suggests that it is represented by the name Piriho, borne by a wood
and assarts in Stanton Harcourt in the 13th century: Feet of Fines for Oxfordshire (Oxfordshire Record Society),
100, 128. |

31 | i.e. Roger d'Ivry. |

32 | That is, Roger d'Ivry, who held the remainder of Yarnton of the Bishop of Lincoln. |

33 | It would seem that the initial H in this word is a mistake for N. |

34 | This word is interlined. |

35 | These figures are interlineations. |

36 | This sum is interlined. |

37 | Of York. |

38 | Apparently this refers to all the above four entries. |

39 | The words 'de Rogerio et ipse de abbate' are an interlineation. |

40 | This entry has been added in the bottom margin, with a mark indicating that it should come before the last paragraph. |

41 | This statement refers to the whole land of the abbey. |

42 | Afterwards Bishop of Durham. The word 'flanbard' is here interlined. |

43 | This entry had been omitted and is squeezed in between the last entry and the next heading. |

44 | Late Earl of Northumbria. |

45 | Hugh de Bolbec, who appears under his full name in the Berkshire Survey as holding 3 houses in Wallingford which belonged to Crowmarsh Gifford. |

46 | Dr. Salter suggests the identity of this Ralf with the Ralf de Langetot, who held Campton, Beds., of Walter Giffard. Both manors passed in the 12th century to Maud de Chesney. |

47 | A blank is left in the MS., and the name of the holding is not given. But this 1^{7}/8 h. combines with the
1^{5}/8 h. held by the Count of Évreux in Bodicot and the 1½ h. held by Berengar de Todeni in the same place to
produce a unit of 5 h. Also, according to the Book of Fees (p. 823), John de Holkot holds a knight's fee in Bodicot
of the Earl Marshall. It may therefore be understood that this entry refers to Bodicot. |

48 | See below, p. 428. |

49 | The only estate assigned to Henry de Ferrars in the Gloucestershire Domesday is the manor of Lechlade. |

50 | Of Winchcombe. This is probably the waste hide entered above among the lands of the abbey. |

51 | See Introduction, p. 391. |

52 | Wigot of Wallingford, kinsman of Edward the Confessor, and the 'antecessor' of Robert d'Oilly and Milo Crispin. |

53 | This explains the statement that Robert held Hook Norton 'as three manors'. |

54 | In 12th-century records this manor appears as 'Treotune' or 'Tretone'. It was held by Nicholas Basset, who founded the abbey of Bruerne within it. |

55 | This early example of the word beneficium in what appears to be its modern ecclesiastical sense deserves
notice. The church is St. Peter's in the East, Oxford. This entry is followed by a blank line, dividing the estates
held by Robert in demesne from those held of him by under-tenants. |

56 | 'Robertus' is interlined. |

57 | In Maine, a castle of Hubert de Beaumont, which held out from 1083 to 1086. |

58 | The half virgate is interlined. |

59 | A blank occurs in the MS. at this point. Dr. Salter points out that the history of the d'Ivry fee proves this manor to have been situated in Combe and Chilworth. |

60 | The word 'clericus' is interlined. |

61 | A blank space occurs in the MS. where particulars of the villeins' holdings would normally come. |

62 | The meaning of this phrase is uncertain. |

63 | Apparently this represents the later Hundred outside the North Gate of Oxford which was appurtenant to the manor of Headington. |

64 | The amounts in each case are intemned. |

65 | In the Berkshire survey Milo is returned as holding 1 hide in an unidentified place in Reading hundred named 'Lonchelei', which belonged to and was valued together with 'Gratentun' [Gatehampton] in Oxfordshire. |

66 | A blank line in the MS. divides the estates held by Milo Crispin in demesne from those which were held of him by under-tenants. |

67 | It is uncertain which of the Oxfordshire places called 'Nethercot' is intended by this entry. |

68 | The words 'f: eius' are interlined. |

69 | Esegar the 'staller' and sheriff of Middlesex, who held the military command in London after the battle of Hastings. |

70 | The words 'uuit' and 'uuelp' are interlined. |

71 | 'Vicecomes' is interlined. |

72 | This place occurs in the Hundred Rolls (ii, 699) between Alvescot and Kencott. Then, as in 1086, it was
held by the same tenant in chief as Yelford and Westwell. But it cannot now be identified. |

73 | This holding has not been traced in later records. |

74 | 'Gifard' is interlined. |

75 | There does not seem to be any place-name in Oxfordshire which represents this form. |

76 | Sister of Edgar the Ætheling and of Margaret Queen of Scotland. |

77 | Hascolf Musard's fief would seem to have been overlooked by the clerk, for it is added at the foot of folios 159b and 160. |

78 | Dr. Salter suggests that this manor lay in Horspath, where in later times there was a Musard fee. |

79 | A duplicate version of this entry occurs in the survey of Staffordshire (D.B. i, 250). There is no material
difference between the entries except that the name of the holder is given as Turstin in the Staffordshire version.
This version was formerly believed to relate to Drayton Bassett, near Tamworth, and its identity with the present
entry was first shown by Miss C. S. Burne in a letter printed by Eyton in his Staffordshire Domesday, p. 133. The
manorial history of Drayton, near Wroxton, shows that it came to form part of the fee of the Earls of Warwick,
and that 'Turchil' (of Arden), not 'Turstin', is the correct form of its holder's name. |

80 | In the MS. this entry occurs at the foot of the folio, but a sign is placed against it to indicate transposition to this point. |

81 | That is, Bix and Ibstone. |

82 | The place-name was omitted by the clerk and interlined afterwards. |

83 | Clearly Robert d'Oilly. |

84 | Of Oxford, presumably. |

85 | Two minims have here been altered into 'vi'. |

86 | Fitz Osbern, Earl of Hereford. |

87 | That is, Robert d'Oilly. |

88 | de Grai is interlined. |

89 | Robert d'Oilly. |

90 | See Introduction, p. 388. |

91 | Although lib. is written clearly, it is very unlikely that so small a manor can have risen in value from 15s.
to £7, and it is probable that lib. is a mistake for sol. |

92 | 'de Laci' is interlined. |

93 | 'Grai' is interlined. |

94 | Now represented by Woodlays Farm in Wootton. The tithe of Dornford, 'Wideli', and 'Cornwell' was
given by Richard de Grai to Eynsham Abbey in or before 1109 (Eynsham Cartulary, i, 36). |

95 | 'de Laci' is interlined. |

96 | See Introduction, p. 391. |

97 | Ibstone is on the boundary between Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. It seems to have been assessed at
4 h. The whole village belonged to Hervey in 1086, but before the Conquest it had been divided into three
portions, two of which are surveyed under Oxfordshire. |

98 | Until 1833, when it was transferred to Oxfordshire, Shenington formed part of Gloucestershire. Geographically it falls within the natural boundary of Oxfordshire formed by the southward extension of Edge Hill, and its inclusion within Gloucestershire is probably due to the fact that it was a member of the great manor of Tewkesbury. |

99 | The annexation of Widford to Gloucestershire, which lasted until 1833, was caused by its position as an outlying estate of the church of St. Oswald at Gloucester. The Archbishop of York was the patron of this church, and its possessions are attributed to him as tenant in chief. |

100 | This phrase probably means that the internal condition of the manor had not changed since 1066. |

101 | Leviget, the bishop's predecessor, is clearly identical with the Leviet whose land at Worton had passed to
Alwi the king's minister. His name represents an Old English Leofgeat. |

102 | This clause refers to William Peverel's manors of Blakesley and Courteenhall in Northamptonshire, as well as to Mollington. Gitda, William's predecessor, was the Countess Gytha, wife of Ralf, Earl of Hereford, and daughter of Osgod Clapa, a very important thegn during the early years of Edward the Confessor. |

103 | This is Urse d'Abitot, the bishop's most powerful tenant. He appears in the Oxfordshire Domesday as the
holder of 1 h. in Chastleton under the Bishop of Bayeux, and of 2 h. in Enstone under Winchcombe Abbey.Note on 'Hunesworde', page 411At the foot of folio 157b of Domesday Book, vol. i ( supra, p. 411), a manor of 5 h. in 'Hunesworde' is
assigned to William fitz Ansculf. The entry is preceded by a rubrication to the effect that the manor is in Dorchester hundred. In the Staffordshire Domesday (D.B. i, 250) it is said that William possessed a manor of 1 h.
in 'Honesworde'. The latter entry certainly relates to Handsworth in Staffordshire, and it is possible that the
entry on folio 157b refers to another manor possessed by William in the same place, of which the description has
been wrongly entered by the Domesday clerks under Oxfordshire. But the fact that the manor described in this
entry is said to be in Dorchester hundred suggests that it was an Oxfordshire estate, and it is noteworthy that the
barony of Dudley, which represented the Domesday fief of William fitz Ansculf, included a knight's fee at
Chislehampton in this hundred (Book of Fees, i, 416; Rotuli Hundredorum, ii, 750). It is highly probable that the
manor of 'Hunsworde' described on folio 157b represents this holding in Chislehampton, which is not otherwise
mentioned in the survey, and that it was mistakenly assigned to Handsworth during the compilation of Domesday
Book from the original returns to the great inquest. |
