A brief journey through time
This is a translation of the Domesday reference for Ercall. At this time it was in the Wrockwardine Hundred.
Ercall (Archelou). Earl Edwin held it, with 5 outliers (or berewicks),
In Lordship (or Demense)
are 6 ploughs and 12 ploughmen (or ox men).
Directly below this translation is the translation for Wellington. This to was worth £20 prior to 1086 but only £18 after. Ercall must have been doing quite well back then!
Osbaston (Sbernestune). Siward and Alwig held it. There are 2 hides. There is land for 6 ploughs. There are 2 leauges of woodland. They were and are waste.
