There is not much left visible of this Town at present, saving two Farms, and ten Cottages, and some Leyes and Closes at the End of Radclive, with which it was intermixed, which still bear the Names of Lambecote Leyes, and Lambecote Closes. Here were two Manors before the Conquest, which Franc and Odinear had, afterwards of Roger de Buslie's Fee. (fn. 1) They defended themselves in the public Payments for seven Bov. and one third. The Land was one Car. There Roger de Busli had one Car. ½, one Vill. and two Acres of Meadow. This kept the ancient Value 15s.
Another Manor here was Ulchet's, and paid the Dane-geld for five Bov. There Osmund, the Man of Raph de Burun, whose Fee it was, had one Car. one Vill. and six Acres of Meadow. This retained the old Value also 10s.
Here was another Manor of the Taynland, which Ulchet had before the Conquest, and paid to the Geld for it as five Bov. ½. This afterwards Aldene held of the King, and had here one Car. in Demesne, and six Acres of Meadow. This in the Confessor's Time 10s. then but 5s. Value.

John, the Son of Ro- bert Torcart, of Hokenale, released to Sir Walter, Son of Sir Walter de Loudham, the Homage, and all the Service, due and accustomed for a Knight's Fee, which he held of him in Lambcote and Hokenal. (fn. 4) Robert, Son and Heir of Geoffrey de Stretley, re- leased to John, Son of Sir Walter de Loudham, 11s. Rent in Lambcote. Sir John de Loudham, Knight, 7 E. 2. let to farm his Manor of Lambcote to Robert Rasen, and Annora, his Wife, for their respective Lives, reserving 16 Marks Sterling per Annum, to be paid to the said Sir John, and Alice, his Wife.
