In Sutton Scarsdale Stenulf had four carucates of land to the geld. Land for five ploughs. The lord has there one plough and six villans and one bordar with one plough, There is a mill rendering two shillings and eight acres of meadow. Woodland pasture half a league long and three furlongs broad. TRE[2] worth forty shillings now twenty shillings.[3]
