Event Bates348      King William 1 orders Urse 1 the sheriff and Osbern 16 fitzScrob and all Frenchmen and Englishmen of Worcs. to ensure that Bishop Wulfstan 55 should have fully his sake and soke, his services, and all the customs belonging to his hundred (of Oswaldslow) and his lands, as he had them in the time of King Edward 15. He is to have the lands which he proved that the abbot of Evesham should hold of his fee, namely, 4 hides in Bengeworth and the houses in the city of Worcester, in such a way that if the abbot wished to hold them, he should do service the bishop’s other vassals. And for the 15 hides of Hampton, over which the bishop has proved his right to soke, geld, military service and other royal services as belonging to his hundred, and church-scot and burial dues which belong to his vill, William 1 orders that no one is to hold them against him. He is to have all things belonging to royal service and his own, as proved and sworn before Bishop Geoffrey 2 and the addressees, with the witness of the shire.
