92 The third penny represented the earl’s share of the profits of justice and trade, and manors to which the third penny is attached may fairly be regarded as comital manors, held in virtue of the earl’s office. Such ‘third-penny manors’ are widespread. 94 The dues from specified hundreds might also be attached to particular manors. 97 It seems likely that many (if not all) of the west country manors in the possession of Godwine’s family had been comital manors, which raises the question of who held them during the family’s exile in 1051–52.

101 Soon afterwards Leofstan was accused of stealing a cloak from some Irish traders at Cambridge. The city elders (patrocimium civium) interceded on Leofstan’s behalf for his life and property, and he gave the land at Horningsea, with the cyrograph relating to it (probably a copy of Wulfric’s will), to Wulfstan of Dalham, presumably for help in escaping the charge of theft. Leofstan was not the only priest of Horningsea to be involved in shady dealings. 102 Thored, apparently acting on a tip-off, arrived at Horningsea with the local ‘hundredmen, tithing-bailiffs and watchmen’ (centurionibus, triumviris ac preconibus), and made a forcible search of the locked chests belonging to Herolf.

It is tempting to identify him with Æthelweard the chronicler himself, but the name was common at the time. Æthelweard mæw may have been a member of another branch of the royal kin, whose earliest identifiable members, Ælfgar and his brother Brihtferth, attest a diploma of King Eadwig in 958. 16 Since the families of Æthelweard the chronicler and Æthelweard mæw were both kinsmen of the West Saxon kings, they must also have been related to each other. A degree of kinship between Odda and Ælfgar mæw is suggested by the topography of their respective manors of Deerhurst and Tewkesbury, as revealed in Domesday Book.
