Before the conquest, Gospatric, a northern nobleman, was Lord of this village, where he had six caracutes of land; three of which, were arable. In the 20th of William I. Erneis de Borun, a Norman, had this manor; whose servant, Trusten, held here one caracute, with one plough, and seven villeins. Here was then a church; and the manor a mile long, and half a mile broad, was, in the time of King Edward, valued at 20s.; but at the above mentioned time, only at 16s. --Vide Domesday Book."
