Manors Allocated in Domesday Book

 

The principal land holders received their land direct from the King. Some of the manors in their holding were retained by them to pay for their own expenses and this was known as a demesne. Other manors were leased to a Tenant in Chief, who was a trusted vassal who undertook to provide a certain number of soldiers if needed. Some Tenants in Chief, such as Rainald the Sheriff, held a large number of places and others perhaps only one. The Tenants in Chief again retained some manors for their demesne and sub-let others to their own men or others who were prepared to provide the required number of soldiers. These became the Lord of the Manor. The value of each place varied considerably, depending on the number of households paying rent or its use, eg a mill or hunting forest. The Domesday Book calculated what each manor was worth to the Lord in terms of rent. See HERE for a breakdown of landholders, tenants in chief and lords of the manor.
