English translation of Portland entry (1819 copy)
The above (Exon) Domesday entry for Portland is (for convenience) as follows:
The King holds the Island which is called Porland. King Edward held it in his lifetime. The King has three ploughs in the demesne there, and five bondmen; and one villane and one hundred bordars save ten have twenty-three ploughs there. There are eight acres of meadow. Pasture eight quarantens long and eight broad. This manor, with what belongs to it, pays sixty-five pounds white money.
