That is in Thornton-in-Lonsdale with Burrow-with-Burrow Orm has c720 acres /290ha of plough-land to be taxed. That manor would also have included grazing land but since only arable land was tallied the total area can only be induced. Orm was one of the family of Norse Noblemen who held the most land in Northern England.
