  • Note:

    Farnham Royal is a Buckinghamshire village on the outskirts of Slough. The Domesday Book records the manor as being held by Baron de Furnival of the Verdon family, who gave the service of providing a glove for the king's right hand on coronation day and helping him hold the sceptre. This kind of feudal service is known as a serjeanty. It was a personal service given to the King, and under the arrangement the giver of the service could have tenure of an estate without having to offer military service or rent. For this serjeanty William I gave the Verdon family the manor of Farnham and it was passed down the family to the Talbots, the Earls of Shrewsbury.
