By far teh greater part of his possessions lay in Buckinghamshire where he held, besides several lesser lordships, Weston, Taplow, Chalfont, and Saunderton; in Kent, where he is called "son of Anschitil." he Held Hastingleigh and Eastling; in Hertford he held the manor of Putenham. These holdings, assessed at upwards of fifty hides, constituted a very large estate for a Doomsday under-tenant."
