Domesday book

By the honorable rights granted to us through virtue of blood, tradition and right to the dominion of Salisbury, I, Count Roderick of Salisbury, son of Count Robyn called the Grand Knight, do recognize that by right, since Time Immemorial, that Sir Gamond, the son of Edern of the Bannermen, carries all rights to the manor of Ludwell, with those fine hunting-grounds, to be held in perpetuity, with the right of judgement at the hundred court of Hillfort; and furthermore I, Count Roderick of Salisbury, recognize also the ancient right, given by the High King Constantine, to carry the arms of his lineage, three cloak pins on gules.

In return for this recognition the good friend my vassal agrees to supply upon demand, for service inside or outside or my county, the service for sixty days of one knight, and two Foot Soldiers for the army, and one Archer for the garrison of Vagon Castle.

These rights are granted in full faith and completion, but in every case excluding those parcels that are legitimately held by other vassals of mine, or by legitimate vassals of theirs, and therefore to this charter we set my seal in trust and affection.
