Corrections to Domesday People and Domesday Descendants
The brief notes compiled here are corrections and additions to two books published by the Unit for Prosopographical Research, Linacre College, Oxford, England, by Dr Katharine Keats-Rohan: Domesday People (DP) and Domesday Descendants (DD). These are part of a series of publications from the COEL Research Project, a project which has now also produced the COEL Database ("The Prosopography of Post-Conquest England. The Continental Origins of English Landholders 1066-1166"). The full references for the two works are:
