the same Thorp, which was not distinguished by a second name (Audlin) at the Survey, when it was reported to have formerly belonged to Elsi, the owner of Norton, Sutton, and other manors in the neighbourhood. The taxable area he possessed in Torp was 6 carucates 3 borates, and it could have maintained 5 ploughs. The royal revenue from the manor was £1. At the time of the Survey, Elsi had been dispossessed and the manor was owned by one Ralph, who under the name of Ralph Pincerna in the time of Ilbert de Lascy, i.e. before 1087, had contributed to the foundation of St. Clement's Chapel by the gift of two garbs (apparently two-thirds

of the tithe), and all the tithe of the mill, which he could not have given according to the practice of the day, had he not owned the mill itself. This gift must


have been after the Survey (and quickly, before the death of Ilbert de Lascy, who seems to have died very nearly at the same time as the King), for at the Survey the mill was not built, though the site was allotted; while, when the grant was made to St. Clement's the mill was built and in use. See also some remarks upon the introduction of windmills at the bead of this article. The mill has now quite disappeared, and there is no trace of its former existence. At the time of the Poll Tax in 1378, there were 26 taxpayers, 19 at 4d., 4 at 6d., and 3 at 12d., paying altogether 11s. 4d. The 4 at 6d. were a butcher, a draper, a webster, and a wright; and the 3 at 12d., the three wealthiest men of the place (significant of the fact that the Great North Road bisected the manor), were three ostelers.

24 See post, under Wentbridge, note 42. Eudo de Lungvillers, the principal witness to this deed, and the only witness named in the above extract, was towards the close of the 12th century seneschal of Clitheroe, the head of the honour which comprised the Lancashire estates of the Pontefract lords. He had a son Alan, as I gather from a charter of Robert de Lascy the second (No. 9 P.) in Lausdowne 207a, while a William who tests the same charter appears as his brother in No. 27 P., another charter of the same Robert, also in Lans. 207a. An Ivo de Lunevillers is a co-witness with William in 1189, and witnessed Roger de Lascy's charter to the Burgesses of Pontefract, while the above William seems to have witnessed their "little charter," both in 1194. But a knight's fee under Henry de


Lascy was held in 1166 by Eudo de Lungvillers, who might have been the first named. General Plantagenet Harrison's pedigree (p. 444), to which I have referred, gives me no help to satisfy the conditions, but is itself startlingly inaccurate during the period to which these refer. For he says, (1) that Eudo de Lungvillers married Agnes d. and h. of Colegrain, lord of Hutton Magna (which was in the fee of Earl Alan), and held a k. f. of Henry de Lascy in the time of King Henry I. and King Stephen; but H. de Lascy was not contemporary with either H. I., or Stephen. (2) Robert, his son, fined 5 marks for his father's lands in 1 H, 2 (1155); but Eudo, according to the "Liber Niger" return, still held the k. f. in February, 1166. (3) Robert's son Ivo gave half the manor of Bads

23 There is no manor or township of this name. But in the early portion of the twelfth century, two Henry de Vernoils, father and son, had considerable possession in the immediate neighbourhood, and one of the two appears inaking

several grants of land at Kellington and Brayton to the priories of Pontefract and Selby. Doubtless this mansion or head house took its name from them, and retained it, although the Vernoil possession was but short.
