CLARE.

In this hundred I find a town at the survey called Clare, held then by Robert Earl of Morton, in Normandy, and of Cornwall in England, of which Earl Harold was lord in King Edward's time; consisting of half a carucate of land, held by 3 borderers, with a carucate and an acre of meadow, valued at 6s. (fn. 1) This with the lordship of Ruston, or Roughton, in North Erpingham hundred, was all that this Earl had of the gift of the Conqueror, in Norfolk, who was his half brother.

How this passed afterwards, or where in this hundred it lay, does not appear.
