Civilopedia entryEdit

The Domesday Shire Court, utilized during the reign of William the Conqueror for the purposes of tax assessment, was an assemblage of townspeople and local lords brought together for the Domesday survey. The Shire Court was loathed by the English populace, who begrudgingly reported their land and livestock holdings to the royal officers of the court.
