Description

A record, compiled between 1087 and 1094, of how King William and his brother, Count Robert of Mortain, saddened by the death of Robertís wife Matilda, distributed all she had possessed in manors, gold, silver and ornaments to monasteries and the needy. As a result the king and his brother gave Piddlehinton in Dorset, a manor of 10 hides, to the church of Notre-Dame outside the castle of Mortain, which the monks of Marmoutier hold.
