At Christmas 1085 William the Duke of Normandy, who had conquered the Kingdom of England in 1066, called a national council at Gloucester Castle. The Council of Gloucester ordered a land survey to establish who owned what and what it was worth. In the summer of 1086 two commissioners visited each manor and asked the same question of local people. The information was passed up to be recorded in 'hundreds' of manors and 'shires', and eventually into a two volume record covering almost all of the kingdom. The commissioners recorded a comprehensive collection of statistical detail. This accounts for the despairing conquered English calling it the 'Domesday Book'.
