The River Wye


history: Domesday hidage


The hidage of the manors of this part of the Wye valley at Domesday.

There was a small amount of English incursion on the Welsh side of the river.

The 3 Welsh hides at Brockhampton are puzzling. Perhaps there was a part of the manor on the Welsh side of the river in what is now Ballingham parish. Alternatively the Welsh hides may have been on the English side of the river.
