Testa de Nevill or "Liber Feodorum"
- "Liber Feodorum" translates to: "the book containing lists of the fees owed by the tenants of the king."
- The "Liber Feodorum" was eventually compiled from Nevill's old records for the use of the king's exchequer between the close of the reign of Edward II, and the beginning of the reign of Edward III. So it was around 1325 A.D. that this work was completed.
- It is likely that Nevill was Ralph de Nevill, listed in the "Liber Feodorum" as a landholder in Rutland. Folio 175
- Book_of_Fees Background information from Wikipedia
- The Book of Fees is the colloquial title of a modern edition, transcript, rearrangement and enhancement of the mediaeval Liber Feodorum (Latin: "Book of Fees"), being a listing of feudal landholdings or "fees/fiefs", compiled in about 1302, but from earlier records, for the use of the English Exchequer. Originally in two volumes of parchment, the Liber Feodorum is a collection of about 500 written brief notes made between 1198 and 1292 concerning fiefs held in capite or in-chief, that is to say directly from the Crown. From an early date, the book comprising these volumes has been known informally as the Testa de Nevill (meaning "Head of Nevill"), supposedly after an image on the cover of the volume of one of its two major source collections
