Description

King William informs Swein the sheriff and all his French and English faithful men and officials that he has granted to the abbey of Westminster the manor of Feering, Essex, with the three houses in Colchester which are subject to it. All is to be held as Earl Harold held it on the day on which King Edward was alive and dead and as William afterwards held it. The grant is made on the advice of Williamís barons on account of an agreement and exchange involving Winchester.
