The second half uses a case study of Bampton hundred in Oxfordshire in the tenth and eleventh centuries to illustrate some of the points made in the first. Bampton hundred has been selected because it affords remarkably clear evidence that late Anglo-Saxon kings could exercise patronage in various ways, for numerous beneficiaries, in a powerful and well co-ordinated manner. It also supplies an unusually well documented example of one of the most important developments in the tenurial structure of late Anglo-Saxon England: the process of manorial fission which caused large tenurial units to fragment into much smaller units of lordship.

It is often assumed that the Domesday commissioners and their scribes recorded such tenures because they derived their information from out-of-date geld lists. However, it is worth entertaining the possibility that the estates in question were comital manors which had reverted back into royal control and were being farmed on the king’s behalf in 1066. Some of the estates attributed to Tostig are known to have been held by King Edward on the day he was alive and dead.
