[Marginal note: The manner how William Francis’ ground (near Hindon way) was agreed upon to be enclosed at the first measuring of it] * Memorandum that on the north corner of Mr Reade’s last 10a there is about three quarters of an acre taken in from William Francis’ ground which was allotted and measured out to him. And for that the said Francis is not inhabiting in Compton, and was promissed that he should have the more measure in his other 4a in the east common (which was not performed), As also for that they would avoid (as they say) a bad plot of way which should have been laid forth for Hindon way, and especially for the goodness of the ground, there being so much gotten to Mr Reade’s 10a. Therefore, that corner was laid to Mr Reade’s, and the way cast where now it is. And in the west side of the said ground of William Francis, there is a plot of ground more taken away from his close and laid to Mr Cordrey’s close there parcel of the parsonage viz from the end of the hedge on the north part unto a lyth withy in William Francis’ upper hedge.

The one hedge should have grown right and equal with Mr Cordrey’s other hedge which comes up from the meade of Compton Chamberlayne.

* Memorandum that on the west side of the said 38a above Hindon Way there is 1a 16p more taken into the said 38a than ought to be (as Jey affirms) which (as he also says) was allotted by the measurer unto Mr Coddrington (then tenant to Mr Reade’s freehold) but not [yielded?] unto by the said Jey. For Jey says that Mr Coddrington had his full part before the other piece was laid to it and ought to have had no more. And in the lower part of the said 1a 16p the beforenamed Mr Coddrington has dyked in for the parsonage about 20p. And in the west part of the said ground of Mr Reade’s, and on the south side of Hindon highway, there is another parcel of very good ground containing by estimation about three-quarters of an acre more than the measure first agreed upon by the information of William Jey, who was appointed of Mr Penruddocke’s behalf to join with Mr Coddrington and the rest for the measuring & allotment of it.

An End of the Arable Fields

Note that at the east part of the said arable fields, at the north-east corner thereof, there is a plot of coppice containing 20p which belong to Compton Chamberlayne Bayntons. The tenants affirm that Robert Bound and Thomas Parker’s father (sometimes tenants of this manor) felled the wood of this coppice twice for Sir George Penruddocke. And Humphrey Watts affirms on his oath, being one of the jury, that his father told him that the boundaries of that plot of coppice should run from the south end of the hedge which divides the late common of Compton from Hurcote Farm unto the hedge which is on the south side of Salisbury Way, and that it belongs to Compton.

Note that if it is alleged that the ditches be made from Compton and from Hurcote and that it should be claimed to be parcel of St John’s as belonging to 4a of St John’s land, lying on the south side of Salisbury highway. Then may it be thus answered that there is also an old ditch in the said coppice from the said 4a and so that no bar to Mr Penruddocke’s claim besides the continual claim and use of it by Mr Penruddocke.

[f. 70/25] [sic]

[f 70v/25v]

[f. 69/23] [sic]

The number of acres of arable lands in the common fields of both of the manors of Compton Chamberlayne is 846a 1r 26p, according to the common account of landshare land there.

The Quality of the sheep[ downs of the said manors.

The sheep downs of the said manors lie most conveniently adjoining the arable fields in the south side thereof wherein the lord of these manors has for his own demesne and for his famers and tenants of his said manors common of pasture for sheep according to the rate and stint set down in the next leaf of this book. And the same sheep downs contain by measure with [___] acres of coppice wood within the same calld Compton Ivers 299a.

Memorandum that the jury affirms that the farmer of the demesne of Broad Chalke, and the farmer of East Gurston feed too far with their flocks of sheep on the western end of Compton down than they ought to do by 40a towards the south side of the highway leading from Shaftesbury to Salisbury. And they say that the first cause of this encroachment came because one [___] Hill heretofore farmer or under tenant of the farm of Broad Chalke about 30 years previously cut and ploughed up a furrow too far upon the lord’s downs of Compton, without any certain knowledge of his own, without sufficient witnesses or proof to lead him to it, and without the knowledge or consent of the lord or of his farmer or tenants of Compton, and without the knowledge or consent of [___] Nicholas gent, then lord of one of the said manors or of his then farmer or tenants. And it manifestly appears by the direct standing of the old bounds the one from the other that the said furrow is ploughed and cut too far north upon Compton down by much. And that from the west end of the said furrow the said

[f. 69v/23v]

farmer of East Gurston takes his course westwads for his uttermost bounds north without any certain [meares] or bounds to lead him, but only part of London highway, which is most uncertain, for the same ways are many and crooked, and the breadth of all the ways are 20p or 30p, which if it be allowed and suffered, will in time breed a further question whether the said farmer of Gurston is to have it to the northerly side of the said highways, and so endanger the taking away of the most and best part of the lords down of Compton towards the west end.

The whole number of acres within both the said manors of Compton Chamberlayne are 2065a.

[f. 72/24] [sic]

A note of such grounds and other things as by the information of John Nicholas gent. Upon his oath are conceales and wrongfully witholden by the said William Jey from Edward Penruddocke esq. as lord of both of the said manors.

Butler’s Moor and the plot of alders there, now in the occupation of the said William Jey, containing by estimation 30p, was allowed in exchange by Gibbs to Mr Nicholas for Mr Nicholas’ parts in the higher close near Gibbs’ house, which now the said Jey holds. And now the said William Jey holds all the upper close and all of the said moor. If that exchange holds, then the moor is Mr Penruddocke’s; if not, then Mr Penruddocke (as lord of the manor of Compton Nicholas) is to have half of the close and half of the moor.

Palmer’s Close, and a plot of ground called Dyers, were also in coparceny between Sir George Penruddocke and Mr Nicholas. Gibbs as tenant to Sir George and Mr Nicholas for himself, agree that for Gibbs’ part in Palmer’s Close, he should have Mr Nicholas’ parts in Dyers, which was far better than Gibbs’ part in Palmer’s Close, and bigger by 10 lugs. And in lieu thereof, Mr Nicholas had better than the moiety in the upper close by the Smith’s house. And since the said William Jey, having the tenement that was lately Gibbs’, and finding that Mr Nicholas’ part was better than his in that last close, took away the surplus of the ground by the smith’s house from Mr Nicholas, and so holds it with the rest, having no right to it, because this was not in the occupation of Gibbs at the time of his surrender to Jey, and Jey was to have no more from Sir George than Gibbs surrendered, for which reasons the half of the Smith’s house, the backside wherein the pear tree stands, and the residue of the surplus lands (well known to Mr John Nicholas) of right belongs to Mr Penruddocke as lord o the manor of Compton Nicholas.

One close of dry pasture containing 1a lying on the north side of the close of the said John Nicholas, which was taken from the field, and which was taken out of John Nicholas’ close by the said William Jey, as so much land in surplus above Mr Nicholas’ due, and now kept away by the said William Jey.

[f. 72v/24v]

[f. 71/26] [sic]

A note of the waste grounds found out by the said survey in Compton Chamberlayne, which properly and of right belong to the lord of the manor.

2r                     Imprimis one half acre of Ley ground being in Copyland Furlong between an acre of Robert Reade’s on the west and a half of Arthur Beach’s on the east.

3r                     One plot of waste ground containing by estimation 3 yards of landshare land, which heretofore have been ploughed in the bottom in the south side of the quarry hill.

2a                    The waste ground inside of the said quarry hill containing by estimation 3a 2r. On the top of the said hill near the farmer’s hedge, Mr Francis Nicholas has shrouded an oak, which trees (it were good) were felled by the lord. The tenants claim inside of the said hill, a kind of common for their cattle and sheep, by toleration of the lord heretofore, they have been suffered to depasture their cattle there. But we verily think it no common for these reasons, viz., because they cannot proove they have had any stint or certain rate of common there for any certain number of cattle as they had in the other commons before the enclosures. Besides, it has never been heretofore at any court of survey presented as a common neither is it called or known by any such name, neither hath it been presented at any court that any of the tenants have overpressed each other with a greater rate or number of cattle there than they ought to have done, which would have been many times ere this, if they had any right of common there. If the westerly part of the said hill of about some 2a were enclosed with the said 3r it would make a pretty good close o ground and leave the rest as it is now, waste for the quarry and for passage to and from the same.

1a 3r                In the foot or bottom of the west down of Compton, next to the farmer’s field, there are 2 parcels of land lying together, which heretofore have been ploughed, and do now lie ley, not occupied nor ploughed by any, which contain about 1a 3r of land share land.

2r                     On the east side of an acre of Robert Reade’s coming forth south out of the Garston, there is a piece of waste ground containing of about 2r of land share land, which heretofore has been ploughed and now lies ley and waste.

1r                     In the Garston, a piece of good ground where the butts sometimes stood, containing by estimation 1r.

20p                  Note that the highway out of the Garston south was wont to go by the west hedge, and now of late it is made along a yard of Bound’s tenement, to the lord’s loss. In lieu whereof he is to be recompensed with that plot which lies by the said hedge where the way was wont to go.

23p                  On the east side of Plymgore Hedge, one parcel of coppice wood called the Grove, lying between a yard of Zachary Elkins on the west and an acre of Francis Nicholas, gent., on the E[ast]. Which coppice wood contains about 23 perches, and the commodity thereof has been taken by the said Zachary and Francis. But by what right non can Constat.

[f. 71v/26v]

Note that upon Chalke Hill and upon the hill above the Garston there are many trees growing, the shrouds whereof are claimed and taken by the tenants of the lands adjoining. But the trees are the lord’s. There are also upon those two hills and upon Orton Hill and Avis Pit many waste plots of small quantities and very barren.

30p                  Adjoining to Garlic Half on the south side of the Garston Hill there is a waste plot containing about 30p.

21p of              In the north end of the common close of Robert Ford of 14a there are

meadow          about 30p of goof meadow lying by the riverside, and so much thereof belongs to Bound’s tenement, as to 140a of arable, and so much to Ford’s as to 40a. In which parcel of meadow there are three good oaks for firebote.

Memorandum that there is a chalk pit at the south-west corner of Compton arable fields near the bottom of the down where the tenants fetch chalk for manuring their lands to the great enrichment of their grounds for the present. For which, the tenants that would fetch should give somewhat to the lord for an acknowledgement because the soil is the lord’s land and the tenants cannot break it, otherwise in time they may claim it as a right.
