Domesday Book

edited by John Morris

Phillimore, 1976

The Domesday Survey was carried out in 1086 and is the first systematic record of the places in Hertfordshire. This book contains the original medieval Latin text and a modern translation.

At the time this page was last updated new and second hand copies could be ordered online

There are other books which include information on the Domesday Book in Hertfordshire. The top of the range is an expensively produced three volume boxed set (Elephant Folio size) published by Alecto which includes a general volume on "Domesday Book Studies", second volume "Hertfordshire: Introduction and Translation" and the third "Hertfordshire: Folios and Maps" which reproduces the original document. New copies are advertised online at 376.99!!! However I found details of a second hand copy on sale in St Albans at 95.
