1898 Excerpt: ...by Judhel. (Trans, xxix. 234, n. 17.) Another
estate, Fierseham (No. 504, p. 475) must also have been given to
the Church after the Conquest, because Eddulf, we are told, held it
previously. It was given to the monks of St. Michael's Mount, to
which King William was a large benefactor, most probably as a
votive gift after a safe arrival in this country across the sea,
St. Michael of Mount Tuba being the patron saint of those in peril
on the sea. The Conqueror's queen Matilda had given Washburton
(Aisbertone) to Judhel. In grateful acknowledgment of his
obligation to her, Judhel, on her death, gave Foletone (No. 652, p.
625), to St. Mary of Totnes for prayers for her soul. The queen
died in 1083, and the gift is mentioned in Domesday, so that the
date of the gift is limited to three years. Follaton had been in
lay hands before the Conquest and belonged to Aluric. Not very long
after Domesday, St. Mary's, Totnes, together with its property,
including Follaton, was bestowed by Judhel on Totnes Priory, a cell
of the Benedictine House of St. Sergius and St. Bacchus at Angers.
(Oliver, Mon. 238.) B. The estates given to the Church by the
Conqueror and his queen consist of the following. That they were
his gifts may be gathered from the fact that all of them are stated
to have been in lay hands before the Conquest. h. v. f. Acres. (1)
