NOTE

The reader should bear in mind throughout that the date of the Domesday Survey is 1086; that King Edward, to whose time it refers as 'T. R. E.' i.e. 'tempore Regis Edwardi,' died January 5, 1066; that the 'hide' was the unit of assessment on which the (Dane) geld was paid; that its subdivisions were: the 'virgate,' one-quarter of the hide; the 'ferling' (farthing), one-quarter of the virgate; and the acre, of which 120 went to one hide. The 'demesne' was the lord's portion of the manor, the peasantry holding the rest under him.

The Rev. J. Collinson prefixed to his History of the County, published in 1791, a copy of the Exchequer Domesday, with an index giving the modern names of places. On the whole the index quite deserves the praise bestowed upon it by the Rev. R. W. Eyton in his Analysis and Digest of the Somerset Survey (according to the Exon codex) and of the Geld Inquest of 1084, 2 vols., 1880. In this latter work the manors are arranged under the Hundreds mainly by means of clues afforded by a close study of the Geld Inquest. The identifications include nearly every manor mentioned, and correct not a few of Collinson's suggestions. In 1899 the present writer printed (Som. Arch. Proc. XLV. ii. 51) an analysis of the Survey arranged to show the prevalence of manors, single or grouped, containing a unit or multiple of five hides. In working it out he availed himself of the immense mass of additional information contained in the Somerset Record Society's volumes, of articles in the Som. and Dors. Notes and Queries, as well as of the six-inch maps of the Ordnance Survey. In 1902, the Rev. T. W. Whale issued an analysis of the Exeter codex and the Geld Inquest. A number of the identifications in the following pages are based upon corrections made therein. But even now finality has not yet been reached. The sites of manors long since obsolete are brought to light quite unexpectedly, and references in early records, by enabling the descent of manors bearing the same name to be accurately distinguished, give clues which eventually carry back their history to Domesday.

The manor of 'Imele' held by Roger de Corcelle comes in his schedule after places in Stogumber and Nettlecombe. 'Oda' might be Woodavent. This place was held by Robert Avenant in 1284 of the Barony of Donden, Corcelle's representative. Woodavent farm is in Nettlecombe. Imele is now lost.

26 Exeter Domesday gives '3 hides,' and adds the figures of the 3 distinct holdings, making that total.
27 'Mansiones de comitatu.'
28 Exet. Dom. 'nemusculi.'
29 Exet. Dom. reads 4 hides, and enters them thus: 'To this manor have been added 4 hides, 2 of which Alwin Banesone held T.R.E. It is called Accheleia [Oakley in Chilthorne Domer], and pays yearly 50 shillings in the king's manor of Mertocha. The other 2 hides 2 thegns held pariter T.R.E., nevertheless they paid by custom 40 pence in Martocha, and now (this) pays 40 shillings in Martocha the king's manor.'

35 Exet. Dom. reads: 'of the king's barons' (Barones regis).
36 Exeter Domesday reads :—'Ulward Wite had 1 manor which is called Peteneia which he himself held T.R.E. and paid geld for half a hide. Half a plough could till this. This the king has in his hand, and it is worth 10 shillings a year. Humfrey holds a manor which he held of Ulward Wite, and there is half a hide of land. One plough could till this.'
37 Exet. Dom. rectius: 'Modiforda.'
38 Identified by Mr. J. Batten (Som. Arch. Proc. xlv. ii. 186) with Up-Mudford manor near Yeovil.
39 This does not imply that Ulward was living in 1086, but only that he had mortgaged the land to Warmund.
40 This is the same name as Warmund.
41 This paragraph is given with certain variations and greater definiteness in Exet. Dom. 'And from Talanda and from Acca and from Holeforda and Ubcedena and Succedena and from Maidenobroca and from Lafort and Lediart and Lega and Billa and Bela and Denichebede (so printed by Rec. Com.), and all these are bound to go on military service (ire in expeditionem) with the bishop's men, and when the lords of the above-mentioned lands die they are bound to be buried in Tantona. Bagueberga owes to Taunton (Tantone) the same customary service (consuetudinem) except (as regards) the army and burial, and from Scobinalre and from Stoca is due the same customary service except (as regards) the army, and Nortona and from Bradeforda and Halsa and Hafella are bound to go thrice in the year to the bishop's pleas, and to pay St. Peter's pence in Tantona, and (their) contribution (denarios) in the hundred, and the land of Hela and of Hilla was not able to be separated from Tantona, and all who dwell in the aforesaid lands, if they are going to be sworn or to undergo the ordeal, shall do (so) in Tantona.'
42 There are three places of this name in Domesday. Moione's Holeford is the parish of Holford St. Mary, afterwards placed in Whitley Hundred, as in Kirby's Quest (1284) it was held by Alice de Furneis of John de Moun. Roger de Corcelle held the other two places of this name. Tenements in Holford St. Mary were held by John le Walshe of Roger de Newburgh (representative of Corcelle) in 1333 (Inq. p. m. 7 Edw. III. No. 26). It is likely that these holdings of Corcelle became the manors of Holford in Combe Florey and Lydeard St. Lawrence, which afterwards became Trebble's Holford and Riche's Holford respectively.
43 Exet. Dom. 'Scobinalre'; doubtful. Perhaps, as placed with, near Stoke S. Mary.
44 I.e. 'Scobindare' and 'Stocha.'
45 The last service, mentioned below.
46 In Domesday Book this passage is thus compressed: '10 ploughs are there in demesne, and 12 serfs, and (there are) 20 villeins and 27 bordars with 10 ploughs. There (are) 37 acres of meadow, and 43 acres of wood(land), and a mill worth (de) 3 shillings—this is Hugh's. In all (this) is worth 27 pounds.'
47 'Alward' above.
48 In Domesday Book this passage is thus compressed: '7 ploughs are there in demesne and 13 serfs, and (there are) 13 villeins and 20 bordars with 3½ ploughs. There (are) 2 mills, which pay 6 shillings and eightpence, and 45 acres of meadow, and 61 acres of wood(land). In all (this) is worth 8 pounds and 3 shillings.'
49 In Domesday Book this passage is thus compressed: '2 ploughs are there in demense and 6 serfs, and (there are) 12 villeins and 17 bordars with 3½ ploughs. There are 2 mills, which pay 14 shillings and 2 pence, and 19 acres of meadow, and 100 acres of pasture, and 20 acres of woodland. . . . and (these estates) were worth 70 shillings; they now pay 6 pounds and 10 shillings.' In this version the other ploughs are again recorded, and the 70 shillings valuation is referred to the time of King Edward, not to that of the Bishop's succession.
50 This 'Lega' is perhaps Pyleigh, or West Leigh, in Lydeard St. Lawrence. As Leghe Episcopi it has a separate schedule in the Exchequer Lay Subsidy of 1327 (Som. Record Soc. iii. 148). In the same Hundred of Taunton are the schedules of Leghe Militis (Angersleigh) and 'Chappeleghe.'
51 In Domesday Book this passage is thus compressed: 'There is land for 5 ploughs. There are 6 villeins and 3 bordars and 4 serfs and 11 acres of meadow and 100 acres of pasture and 49 acres of wood(land). It was and is worth 45 shillings.

58 In 1284 (Kirby's Quest, S.R.S. iii. 40) Roger Tyrel held half the vill of 'Childe Cumtone' of the Bishop of Salisbury.
59 Leofwine.
60 Exact equivalent not now known. In Exeter Dom.: 'Turnie' and 'Turnietta.' It is the ' Tournegate' of a Final Concord concerning land in Wyke and Kingsbury in Milborne Port (Ped. Fin. 42 Ed. III. 33; S.R.S. xvii. 68); or the 'Tournegate' of another Final Concord concerning lands in Toomer and Endeston in Henstridge, to the south of Templecombe; Ped. Fin. 14 Rich. II. 21, (S.R.S. xvii. 144).
61 Exet. Dom. reads: '14.'
62 Exet. Dom. '23.'
63 Exet. Dom. adds: '2 thegns held 4 hides, and 1 thegn held 3 hides.'
64 'Hasecumbe.' Although hitherto identified with part of Ashcombe in Weston-super-Mare, the other part coming later in this schedule, its position in the sequence is in favour of its identification with Hescombe, an obsolete part of the parish of Odcombe, on the borders of Montacute and Tintinhull. In Kirby's Quest 'Etecumb' (Hececombe) in the Hundred of Tintinhull is held by Bret of Lacy as of the Barony of Trowbridge.
65 Exet. Dom., 'tantum pascue quod reddit ii
66 Exet. Dom. rectius 'Illebera.'
67 Exet. Dom.: 'Temesbera which Sibe held pariter.'
68 In the Exchequer text the number of the hides and ploughlands have been altered from '2' to '5'; the Exeter Domesday reads '2' in each case.
69 A 'ii' interlined before 'vill. i. virg.' is probably intended as a correction of the number of virgates, which should be 2.
70 Exet. Dom. '4.'
71 Against this paragraph Exet. Dom. has in the margin a +.
72 The final 'v' of this name is interlined and faint, but Exet. Dom. reads: 'Portesheve.'
73 Exet. Dom. 'morarũ.'
74 In the Supplement to Kirby's Quest (S.R.S. iii. 44), 1303, Clapton-in-Gordano is held by Rich. Artur of the Earl of Gloucester. This entry of 'Clotune' comes among other manors in Portbury Hundred, and may be considered as a clerical error for 'Cloptone.'
75 Exet. Dom.: '(Fulcran and Nigel) have there 2 hides (in demesne) and 32 villeins, who have 14 ploughs.'
76 Exet. Dom.: '(Nigel) has there 5 hides and 2 ploughs in demesne, and his villeins 5 hides and 12 ploughs.'
77 Exet. Dom.: 'Of the aforesaid hides a priest holds 1 virgate which belongs to the church.'
78 A list of knights' fees held of the Earl of Gloucester in 1315 includes Freshford (Inq. p.m. 8 Ed. II. 68–69). Freshford occurs in Bishop Drokenfsord, Register in 1313 (S.R.S. i. 157).
79 Exet. Dom. '10.'
80 Exet. Dom. adds: 'inter se et suos.'
81 In Kirby's Quest, 'Wynfred'; Nom. Villar. of 1317, 'Wynfird.'
82 These figures include the live-stock on the hide 'addita.'
83 Against this entry + in Excheq. Dom., and also at Millescota, evidently to mark Glastonbury property alienated.
84 Exet. Dom.: 'Wlwold the priest.'
85 Exet. Dom.: 'cum terra sua poterat ire ad quemlibet dominum.'
86 The tenant Roger is apparently Roger Wythent, who gave the church of Stok to the church of Bath (v. the Martyrology in Chartularies of Bath Priory, S.R.S. vii. 159). In 1221 Roger de Clifton recovered the advowson of the church of 'Radestok' from the Prior of Bath (Ped. Fin. 5 Hen. III. 48; S.R.S. vi. 43).
87 Exet. Dom.: '4.'
88 Exet. Dom.: '12.'
89 In Kirby's Quest, 1284, 'Telesford' is held of the Earl of Gloucester.
90 See Exet. Dom. for the different shares of the several tenants.
91 Exet. Dom. reads '9.'
92 Mediæval variations are Emelebergh (Kirby's Quest), Emnebergh (Nom. Villar.), Empneberghe (Excheq. Lay Subsidy, 1327), Enbarowgh (Inq. p.m. John Butler, 17 Hen. VIII. Chanc. 43).
93 Exet. Dom. reads, 'the aforesaid 5½ hides.'
94 Exet. Dom.: 'Alnod.'
95 Opetone. Augustine de Plessy held 'Hupptone' in Bruton Hundred of the Honour of Gloucester in 1284, Kirby's Quest (Upetone in Nom. Villar.).
96 There are two places of this name in the county, both held of the Earl of Gloucester. One is 'Wydergrave' in Hardington, near Frome; the other is Wergrave in Sandford Orcas; both are obsolete. Its position in the schedule between Midgehill in Chelvey and Stowell in the Hundred of Horethorne is dubious, but the balance is in favour of the identification adopted.
97 'Estanwella.' This spelling appears in Kirby's Quest in the Hundred of Horethorne, which contains the modern Stowell. In the Nom. villar., 1317, and in the Exchequer Lay Subsidy of 1327 it is 'Stawelle.'
98 Exet. Dom. gives the details of each holding.
99 Exet. Dom.: '15.'
100 A charter of Edward the Confessor to Bishop Giso mentions 'Lytleinge and Hywise.' As Huish Episcopi is not mentioned in Domesday, it is likely that at this date the parish was known by the first name, which has now disappeared.
101 Exet. Dom. gives the breadth of the woodland as '2 furlongs.'

115 Exet. Dom. : 'Wdewica.'
116 No doubt the 'Geofanstiga' of King Edgar's charter to Bath Abbey (Bath Cartularies, i. 25; S.R.S. vii. 25. It is marked spurious by Kemble). Two of the bounds are the Camelon, the older form of the Cam brook, and the Bath 'herpath,' perhaps the Fosse way. In a later charter (S.R.S. vii. p. 112, Nos. 581, 582) the Prior of Bath acknowledges the tithes coming from the demesne of Robert de Boys in 'Evesty' within the limits of the parish church of Wellow to belong to the Abbey of Cirencester. A Final Concord of 29 Ed. I., No. 76 (S.R.S. vi. 314) mentions 'Eversyjuxta-Combe Hawey.' So the position of the place can be settled, but the name is quite obsolete.
117 This appears to refer to all the preceding manors.
118 In Exet. Dom. 'Padenaberia.'
119 Exet. Dom. gives details of each holding.
120 Exet. Dom. : 'super illam terram quæ non reddidit gildum.'
121 As there is no place of this name in or near Shapwick, and Chilton (on Polden) does not appear, it is probable that 'Ceptone' really refers to Chilton. In Kirby's Quest Robert de Cheltone holds Cheltone of Cecilia de Beauchamp (representative of Corcelle), who holds of the Abbot.
122 Exet. Dom. gives separate details of each of these four holdings.
123 Caballi with roncini written above.
124 Exet. Dom. has 'Garmund.'
125 Exet. Dom.: '4.'
126 Exet. Dom.: '2 monks at Contona; 2 thegns at Aissecota; Algar at Pedewilla.'
127 Exet. Dom. 10 pounds.
128 This is superfluous to the 20 hides of Butleigh. Its position in the schedule among portions of the great manor of Walton would lead to the belief that it is an obsolete ville, but again it is superfluous. At present it must be left doubtful.
129 Exet. Dom. reads iiii virg., the last stroke interlined.
130 Exet. Dom. gives details of each holding.
131 Exet. Dom. mentions '3 thegns' and 'Sirewold.'
132 Exet. Dom. gives details of each holding.
133 Exet. Dom. reads : 'Alward holds half a hide which Alestan held T.R.E.'
134 Lodreford. Bowen's map of Somerset (1750) marks Loderford south-east of Walton, evidently close to Butleigh moor, now in the civil parish of Walton, but formerly a detached part of Butleigh. There is another 'Loderford,' hodie Lattiford, a detached part of the parish of Holton, situate in North Cheriton. Blackford, Holton and 'Loterforde' are in the Hundred of Whitley (Excheq. Lay Subsidy, 1327). In Domesday Humphrey the chamberlain is tenant both of Halton and Loderford, which rather points to Lattiford as being the modern representative of 'Lodreford.'
135 Exet. Dom.: '1½.'
136 Exet. Dom. reads 'Coriscoma.'
137 Exet. Dom.: Almer at Wootton; Almar at Pylle; Sirewold in Pilton.

142 Exet. Dom.: 2 thegns at Hornblotton; 2 thegns 'pariter' at Alhampton; Spirtes (Sps) the priest at Lamyat.
143 Exet. Dom. gives details of each holding.
144 A blank space after Edmer. Exet. Dom.: 'Edmeratorius.'
145 Exet. Dom.: 'two thegns and Alfric the reeve (prepositus).'
146 Exet. Dom. gives details of each holding.
147 Exet. Dom. reads: 'Iodena Wirda.' Being held temp. Domesday by Walter of Dowai, it may be identified with the manor of Edenworthy in Brent Mareys, a moiety of which was held by George de Cantilupe, son of William de C., as a member of the Barony of Worleston or Worle, this being also a holding of W. de Dowai (Inq. p.m. George de C., 1 Edw. I. 16). In the Rentalia of Glastonbury, temp. Abbot Michael de Ambresbury (1235–1252), Will. de Cantilupe and Helyas de Bello Campo held '1 fee at Edenewrth and Kington (in Wilts)' (S.R.S. v. 3). In the Nom. Villarum of 1317, John son of Thomas Beauchamp held 'Yadenworth' in the Hundred of Bempstone.
148 Exet. Dom.: 'nor could he be separated from the church.'

152 Exet. Dom. as usual gives the separate items for each holding.
153 Exet. Dom. reads: '1½ ploughs.'
154 Exet. Dom. values the abbot's portion at 9 pounds, and Dodeman's at 20 shillings; 'and when he received it, 10 shillings.'
155 Exet. Dom. arranges this and succeeding entries under 'Lands given in almoin' (fo. 196), that of Shaftesbury excepted.
156 Eyton identifies this anonymous manor as one moiety of Nunney (Dom. Stud. Som. i. 158–60).
157 i.e. the nunnery of Shaftesbury.
158 Of Ilchester, v. ante p. 467.
159 Exet. Dom.: 'Land which has been given to the saints in almoin.' The order of the entries runs: North Petherton, Edith the Nun, Bera, Cannington, South Petherton, Carhampton, Honicote, Waverdinestoc, Milverton, Crewkerne, Curry (Rivel), Ilchester, Puriton, Lege, Ragiol, Frome, (Nunney,) Kilmersdon.
160 Exet. Dom. has 'carrucatas.'
161 This place can be identified with the later Stokegomer, hodie Stogumber, by references to its ancient lords; Richer de Andeleio of the Exet. Domesday being replaced by John de Andeli, who held a tenement in demesne in 'Stoke Gunner' in 1226 (Som. Plea Rolls 9–10 Hen. III. 299; S.R.S. xi. p. 64). Walter de Andelys gave the advowson of 'Stokgummer' to the Bishop of Bath and Wells in 1256 (Wells Cath. MSS., Hist. MSS. Report, 1885). In Kirby's Quest, 1285, Robert de Andely holds 'Stokegommer' of Henry de Lacy, Earl of Lincoln. I have not found any example of the earlier form of the word outside Domesday.
162 In the Exchequer Domesday (facsimile) this is written Ebra.
163 Exet. Dom. reads: '3 villeins and 4 bordars.'
164 Plumba = a dish used as a measure for ore, afterwards the due payable on the measure (Eyton, Som. Dom. i. 41).
165 Exet. Dom. reads : '3.'
166 Boloniensis interlined in red.
167 Contitone, held of Count Eustace by Maud. This was one of three places of the same name left unidentified by Eyton. The other two, with a total of 5 hides, belonging to Walter of Dowai, can be identified with part of Chilcompton. The only other parish of Compton on the modern map not provided with a Domesday prototype is Compton Bishop. This has generally been taken as a detached part of the great episcopal manor of Banwell; and it was certainly in the Bishop's hands in 1159 (Wells Cath. MSS. 15). Compton Bishop adjoins Loxton, another manor of Count Eustace. While it is not possible to decide the question, it is quite likely that one of the early bishops of the diocese may have obtained Compton for the see. Failing this, 'Contitone' must remain unidentified.
168 It was held in 1284 (Kirby's Quest) by William le Bret of the Barony of Chester (which was Hugh's earldom). As in the case of Tetton and Alre, the family of Brett had succeeded William, whose surname Eyton considers to have been Malbanc (Eyton, Som. Dom. i. 58).
169 Exet. Dom. reads: '2.'
170 Possibly part of Bicknoller, anciently 'Bykenalra.'
171 Exet. Dom. reads : 'abbot.'
172 Exet. Dom. reads : '3.'
173 Exet. Dom. adds here the statement of the custom due to South Petherton, which will be found under the 'Terra Regis.'
174 As nearly all Malger de Cartrai's holdings in this district came to the family of Vaux, this particular manor may be identified with Seavington Vaux or St. Mary.
175 Compton Durvile in 1284 (Kirby's Quest) was held by the heirs of Whytele of the heirs of Essehulle, i.e. Ashill, owned by Vaux.
176 Exet. Dom. has : 'molendinum quod molit annonam suam' ; having no business outside the manor work (Eyton, Som. Dom. i. 41).
177 This entry and those of Tintinhull and Kingstone below are marked with a cross, to show land alienated from the church. See also p. 451.
178 Exet. Dom. reads : 'Alnod abbot of.'
179 Exet. Dom. has: 'Edwi and his four brothers.'
180 Exet. Dom.: '9.'
181 Exet. Dom. : 'Aluiet, Suet and Alvert.'
182 Exet. Dom. adds here the statement concerning 1 virgate detached from Curry Rivel; see under 'Terra Regis.'
183 There are four entries under this name (with variations), with a total of 5 hides. The Bradon of Harding son of Elnod is Goosebradon, whose superior lords were the family of De Meryet (Inq. p.m. John de Meriet, 1 Edw. II., no. 62). Bradon held of the Count by Drogo, rated at 2 hides, is South Bradon, in which Nicholas Reade held 2 hides of Will. de Montacute Earl of Salisbury in 1397 (Inq. p.m. 20 Ric. II. 35). Another Bradon also held of the Count by Drogo (de Montacute), rated at 1 hide, is the single hide held by Will. de Staunton of Will. de Montacute in 1397 as above. The fourth Bradon held of the Count by Malger de Cartrai, rated at 1 hide, should be the single hide in 'Bradene' given by Gervase Ivas to Hugh de Montisorell c. 1220, and by him given to Muchelney Abbey (Much. Cart., Nos. 14, 15, 16, S.R.S. xiv. p. 52). In Nom. Villar., 1317, the Abbot of Muchelney and Cristina de Staunton are entered as owners in North Bradon.
184 Exet. Dom. reads: '1½ hides.'
185 Exet. Dom. reads: 'Hatulf held Doniet T.R.E. and paid geld for 2 hides ; to this manor has been added the land of 2 thegns who held in parage (pariter). Sawin held 1½ hides and Dunstan 1½ hides.'
186 Exet. Dom. states: 'qui molit annonam suam': having no business beyond the work of the manor.
187 Exet. Dom.: '8.'
188 Exet. Dom. allots the 3 ploughs to the villeins.
189 Exet. Dom. reads: 'Godric held Hachia T.R.E. and paid geld for 2 hides ; to this have been added 2 other manors which 2 thegns held in parage (pariter). Godwin had 2 hides and Bollo 1 hide.'
190 i.e. he could not alienate the land.
191 In Kirby's Quest, 1284, Hugh de Courtney held Cricket Malerbe of Simon de Montacute as of his manor of Shepton Montacute.
192 Exet. Dom.: 'in firma mansionis Regis.'
193 Exch.: portarii. Exet. Dom.: 'portitores.'
194 Exet. Dom.: '2.'
195 This entry is written across the whole width of the page at the foot (pl. xiii. in Photozincographed Copy of Domesday), showing that it had been omitted at the proper place, which on the evidence of the Exeter codex is between Appley and Bradon.
196 Exet. Dom.: 'when the Count received it 20 shillings'
197 Exet. Dom. reads : 'Adwin pariter.'
