Under the land of the Earl Warren, and in this hundred, a town of this name occurs in the book of Domesday; one Roger, in the Confessor's time, had half a carucate of land here, held by two freemen, valued at 3s. (fn. 1) In the bounds of Bromehill, on a green near to the Ouse-Parva, where formerly Bromehill fair was kept, many foundation-stones have been dug up, and, some years past, a large key, like an old church key; and some grounds here (as I have been informed) are called by the name of Keburn, at this day. This has induced me to fix the site of this place here, otherwise now lost and unknown.
