Thorpe Audlin was considered to be a medium-sized settlement at the time. The Lord in 1066 was Alsi son of Karski. The Lord after Domesday was Ralph, while the tenant-in-chief was Ilbert of Lacy. The total taxable amount was 6.4 Geld units, being a relatively large amount compared to other settlements. [3]
