You might find more in "The Domesday Book, English Heritage, Then and
by Thomas Hinde (Bramley Books, 1985) but I think this only gives the
i happen to have this book at my fingertips. if someone would like a
look up, don't hestitate to ask..BUT, please have a village and county.
the writing is extremely small and in pale blue.
do not expect a wonderous report back. some entries are very brief..one
or two sentences, others are a good paragraph.
Griston: Gres-Gristuna: King's Land, also in the custody of Godric;
formerly a free woman; William de Warrenne; Roger Bigot; Ralph Baynard;
Osbert from John nephew of Waleran Church, 10 beehives, 30 pigs, 10
cattle, a village. The Elizabethan Hall, now a farmhouse, is said to
have been the home of the Babes in the Wood, murdered in nearby Wayland
or Wailing Wood. The story dates from the Stuart days.
Merton: Meretuna: Ralph Baynard, 24 pigs, small village. Church with a
Saxon wall and north tower; hall. Edward Fitzgerald, translator of the
Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, died here (1883)
the book is beautiful, loaded with pictures/graphics/maps of england
and castles/ruins. it profiles 150 selected places, and has 12,500
entries listed under the modern names.
