    special treatment as typifying the effect of the Conquest on this country in practice 1 He analysed its evidence so fully that in dealing with the subject one is forced to traverse to some extent his footsteps There was however an external reason for this choice of Berkshire namely the existence of that chronicle of the local Abbey of Abingdon which helps us to illustrate the Domesday text and which is specially rich in that personal detail that Mr Freeman valued most of all 3 But the interest of the survey is by no means confined to those features which to him proved the most attractive the long account of the borough of Wallingford and the very important entry on the local institutions of Berkshire would alone afford material for lengthy disquisition The great extent of the Conqueror s own manors in the county and the fact that it contained at Windsor his new fortified residence already entitled it to claim the epithet of royal Six columns of Domesday Book are devoted to a survey of the lands which William held in his own hands the royal demesne having evidently been even before the Conquest very extensive in the county King Edward him self was the predecessor in some eighteen instances of his Norman successor and his relict Queen Edith in five others The old Crown manors moreover were mostly large and important Cookham Lam bourn and Old Windsor were each assessed at twenty hides Cholsey and Sutton Courtenay at more than twenty each Shrivenham at forty six and Reading at forty three in addition to which William held the borough of Reading in demesne Nor was assessment always an indication of their value Blewberry and Wantage at the time of Norman Conquest 1871 iv 32 47 728 736 This

    is not probable that the space allotted to a county in Domesday had much if anything to do with its wealth or its population The determining factor in this matter was really the amount of detail that the authorities decided to include Domesday Book we must always remember is only a compilation from original returns for the Hundreds which included we have reason to believe many details in addition to those which appear in that compilation 1 It is possible that the Domesday Commissioners themselves varied on their several circuits in the amount of detail they asked for but it was clearly the compiler who was chiefly responsible for cutting down the information supplied on certain points in the inquiry Apart from a certain fulness of detail in this county its survey fortunately for us contains a few of those personal touches which make the men and women even of that remote period something more than mere names The first information found in an entry after the name of the holder of the land is the number of hides at which it was assessed The hide was merely a unit of assessment of which the virgate was a quarter 2 and this assessment was of arbitrary character being based on a unit of five hides In Buckinghamshire this unit becomes peculiarly prominent as in the neighbouring counties of Bedford and Cambridge and even the casual reader can hardly fail to be struck by the large number of manors assessed at such sums as 5 10 15 We draw this conclusion from the transcripts of the Cambridgeshire original returns and from the Domesday Survey of the eastern counties as well as from the Exon Domesday At Lathbury in this county an entry probably unique speaks of i hida v pedes minus

    roads over moun tain passes the territorial area now known as the county of that name had remained for centuries more of a Crown colony than a settled division of the commonwealth Its inclusion in the old kingdom of Cumbria separated it in a large measure from the general polity of English and Scottish history and gave it a defined isolation which made itself felt in the settlement of the district after the final overthrow of that kingdom Owning no allegiance to its powerful neighbours it was successively ravaged by Picts and Scots Angles and Danes Later it was claimed by England and Scotland alike till it was finally ceded to the king of Scot land as afief of the English Crown Its southern boundary receded from Morecambe Sands to the Duddon from the Duddon to the Esk and from the Esk to the Derwent as if England was slowly pushing her way northward with the view of completing her frontier from the Solway to the mouth of the Tweed When the time arrived for its final severance from ancient Cumbria and its absorption into fhe English kingdom it will not be considered strange that its peculiar position warranted ex ceptional administration from the statesmen among its Norman and Angevin rulers These exceptional features present themselves at almost every turn The early Scotic origins of the district its late formation as Ecgfrid king of Northumbria gave the land called Cartmell and the Britons in it to St Cuthbert Symeon of Durham p 141 Surtees Society The kingdom of Northumbria stretched from the Humber to the Scottish sea including the peninsula now known as Lancashire north of the Sands Twysden Bromton 801 The region of Ulverston was surveyed in Domesday Book with part of Cumberland as having been held by Tosti
