Domesday satellites

In addition to Great Domesday, the Domesday Inquest produced a number of major texts, conventionally known as satellite texts, the most important being Little Domesday; the Inquisitio Comitatus Cantabrigiensis or Cambridge Inquisition (ICC); the Inquisitio Eliensis or Ely Inquisition (IE); the Liber Exoniensis or Exeter Domesday (LE); and the Domesday Monachorum and Excerpta of St Augustines (Canterbury), from Kent.

Little Domesday is translated in Victoria County History for Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex, the ICC in the Victoria County History for Cambridgeshire, and the Domesday Monachorum in the Victoria County History for Kent. Those parts of the LE relating to Devon and Dorset are translated in Victoria County History for those
counties. Finally, portions of LE and IE are summarised or abstracted in the relevant volumes of Morris's translation for Phillimore (e.g., Cornwall, Hertfordshire). There are also a number of lesser texts from Abingdon, Bath, Canterbury, Evesham, Peterborough, Rochester and Bury St. Edmunds, some of which are translated in the notes to the relevant counties of the Morris edition of Domesday Book.
