The first important written source for most English villages is, inevitably, Domesday Book. This was compiled by the Normans in 1087 to give William the Conqueror a precise idea of the taxable wealth of England. Quite a 1ot of information can be gleaned from its highly abbreviated, and often cryptic statements.
