Great Domesday, Folio 107 Verso

Stefano ten' de B cliford. Britmer tenet T.R.E. 7 geldt ap una hida...

 

Stefano holds (the manor of) Clifford from B(aldwin). Britmer held it in the time of King Edward and it paid rent at one hide...

 

Othelm tenet de B hidone. Goduin tenet T.R.E. 7 geldt ap iii hid...

 

Othelm holds Clayhidon from Baldwin. Godwin held it in the time of King Edward and it paid rent at three hides...

 

County by county, landlord by landlord, parish by parish, the Great Domesday details who paid what rent and other obligations to whom and for what in 1086, right down to the un-named householders, bonded peasants and slaves. Here in the county of Devon, the holdings and tenants of the Norman landlord Baldwin the Sheriff are itemised.

 

They didn't have bold ink in those days, so the names of the holdings are highlighted by being crossed through in red.
