This heading is misleading, as only the first two entries refer to him. In the margin of the Exchequer Domesday at this point is a *, with a similar mark on the next leaf at the heading 'Land of Humphrey and others.' In the Exeter Domesday the heading of XLV. is 'Lands of the King's serjeants in Somerset.'
