Beorhtsige 'of Torworth'

Far away from any other manor assigned to a Beorhtsige, Torworth in north Nottinghamshire was a vill of 6 bovates held in 1066 as two manors by Beorhtsige and Kaski. Torworth was in the fertile lowlands of the Trent basin and had two ploughlands and a small amount of wood-pasture in the late eleventh century, but with a presumed holding of only 3 bovates, Beorhtsige 45 was little more than a rich peasant.
