NOTE
Warblington is surveyed, not under Hampshire, but under Sussex, where it figures as an appurtenance of (West) Bourne (fo. 23b) a manor of Earl Roger (of Shrewsbury~ :

The same earl holds in demesne BORNE. Earl Godwine held it . . .

To this manor belongs Warblitetone [Warblington] in Hantescire. T.R.E. it was assessed at 12 hides ; now at 4 hides. There is
land ... In (the) demesne are two ploughs, and (there are) 17 villeins and 12 bordars with 5 ploughs. There are 2 churches, and 6 serfs, and 1 mill worth 10 shillings.

In addition to this entry there is one, under Hampshire, on `Neutibrige' (fo. 44b), which, Villarum(1316)-formerly a tithing in Warblington, of which the name seems to have died out at a comparatively early period. As`Neutibridge` was assessed at 3 hides, we have a total assessment of 15 hides for Warblington before the Conquest.

There are also under other counties allusions to the Isle of Wight. Another and a somewhat mysterious entry relates to the King's manor of Sheepshed, Leicestershire, of which it says: "from this land come 6 pounds of rent (ad firmam), by direction of the bishop of Bayeux, for the service (servitio) of the Isle of Wight " (fo. 23ob).
