The Gloucestershire section of Domesday Book: geographical problems of the text

The Gloucestershire section of Domesday Book: geographical problems of the text

By J.S. Moore

Transactions of the Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological Society, Vol. 105 and 106 (1987-88)

Summary: Part 1 of this work dealt with the identification of places mentioned in the Gloucestershire section of Domesday Book which had either not been identified by previous writers on the subject or had been incorrectly identified. Part 2 endeavours to identify the so-called ‘anonymous holdings’, those not named in the Domesday text. These unnamed places are considered hundred-by-hundred, and are located principally by tracing the descents of manors not mentioned in Domesday Book until a secure identification can be achieved.
