Kitchen Splashbacks in Bythorn

Based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, Splashbacks of Distinction have a real passion for toughened glass in and around the home. We have transformed many properties, both commercial and domestic with our glass splashbacks, for kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms. Our toughened glass balustrades, glass shelving and splashbacks with high resolution images have really caught the imagination of people who demand beauty and functionality in their homes and offices. We cover many areas outside of Hertfordhire too, including Bythorn in Cambridgeshire.

A little Bythorn history

In 1085 William the Conqueror made an order that a survey should be carried out across his kingdom to discover who owned which parts and what it was worth. The survey took place in 1086 and the results were recorded in what, since the 12th century, has become known as the Domesday Book. Starting with the king himself, for each landholder within a county there is a list of their estates or manors; and, for each manor, there is a summary of the resources of the manor, the amount of annual rent that was collected by the lord of the manor both in 1066 and in 1086, together with the taxable value.

Bythorn was listed in the Domesday Book in the Hundred of Leightonstone in Huntingdonshire; the name of the settlement was written as Bierne in the Domesday Book. In 1086 there was just one manor at Bythorn; the annual rent paid to the lord of the manor in 1066 had been five pounds and the rent had increased to the equivalent of five pounds and fifty pence in 1086.

The Domesday Book does not actually detail the population of a place but it records that there was nineteen households at Bythorn. There is no consensus about the average size of a household at that time; estimates range from 3.5 to 5.0 people per household. Using these figures then an estimate of the population of Bythorn in 1086 is that it was within the range of sisty six to ninety five people.

The Domesday Book uses a number of units of measure for areas of land that are now considered to be strange terms, such as hides and ploughlands. In different parts of the country, these were terms for the area of land that a team of eight oxen could plough in a single season and are equivalent to 120 acres; this was the amount of land that was considered to be sufficient to support a single family. By 1086, the hide had become a unit of tax assessment rather than an actual land area; a hide was the amount of land that could be assessed as one pound for tax purposes. The survey records that there was ten ploughlands at Bythorn in 1086. In addition to the arable land, there was 30 acres of meadows at Bythorn.

The tax assessment in the Domesday Book was known as geld or danegeld and was a type of land tax based on the hide or ploughland. It was originally a way of collecting a tribute to pay off the Danes when they attacked England, and was only levied when necessary. Following the Norman Conquest, the geld was used to raise money for the King and to pay for continental wars; by 1130, the geld was being collected annually. Having determined the value of a manors land and other assets, a tax of so many shillings and pence per pound of value would be levied on the land holder. While this was typically two shillings in the pound the amount did vary; for example, in 1084 it was as high as six shillings in the pound. For the manor at Bythorn the total tax assessed was four geld.
