   The chattels on the other Kent manors are similarly given. The heads in each case being almost precisely the same, it will be beside our present purpose to detail them; it will suffice to give the value found in each manor, viz.:
Preston (as above) 
Elmerston Overlond (i.e. Elmston, and Overland manor in Ash) 
Elham 
Esshetesford (i.e. Ashford) 
Grare (i.e. de la Gare or Gore, in Upchurch)
Slayhull (i. e. Slayhills, in Upchurch) 
Mere (in Rainham) 
Eslyng (Easling) 
Beuriper ( in ready money) 2
"Wodlyng (i.e. Wadling in Ripple) 
Leyborne 
Wateringbury
