Burton upon Trent, the largest town in the National Forest, is internationally known as the capital of British brewing. The River Trent and the Trent and Mersey canal wind their way majestically through the town. Michael Bass, who became Lord Burton in the 19th century, gifted the town with many of its fine buildings, the most prominent is the Town Hall, together with St. Margaret’s Church and the beautiful St. Paul’s. The parish church of St. Modwen’s, is generally acknowledged to be one of the finest examples of Palladian type Gothic architecture in the country. Standing near the Trent, it was built in the early 18th century, on a site used for Christian worship for over one thousand years; and is dedicated to the founder of the first Christian settlement at Burton in the 7th century. Christianity was introduced to Mercia, one of the Kingdoms of the Anglo-Saxon Heptarchies, in 653 AD. A monastery was founded at its capital, Repton. Soon afterwards, a religious settlement was established at Burton by Saint Modwen who hence became its patron saint. She was an Irish noble woman who became an abbess and made a pilgrimage to Rome.
She, together with two other accompanying nuns Lazar and Althia, visited Burton on the way and founded a church dedicated to God and Saint Andrew on an island on the river Trent. She named the island Saint Andrews Isle, or Andressey. They stayed for seven years before continuing to Rome. William the Conqueror is recorded to have come to Staffordshire in person during 1069 and 1070 in campaigns to stamp out rebellion. The force of this and general level of destruction was so great that large crowds of men, women and children wandered as far south as Evesham trying to scavenge food. William I is also known to have visited the shrine of Saint Modwen so certainly visited Burton and its Abbey. A survey later nicknamed and now commonly known as The Domesday Book was compiled on the order of King William in 1086. In the Burton entry in the Domesday Book, it is wrongly entered as Stafford instead of Burton which led to some later confusion. 20 estates were bestowed in Staffordshire by Wulfic but only nine of these are recorded in the survey. Despite the Abbey, Burton was actually recorded as smaller than Stretton.
The Norman lords who accompanied William on the conquest of England were rewarded with land and title. The most significant beneficiary in the Burton area was Henry de Ferrers, who was given Tutbury castle in 1071. Another was Robert de Toeni whose son Nigel obtained Drakelow and Gresley. Royal commissioners visited each area and the inhabitants gave the information required in Old English although the final record was written in abbreviated Latin. Henry de Ferrers, of Tutbury castle, was one of the commissioners for Staffordshire. Williams principal aim in making the survey was to provide a complete audit of England for the purposes of tax assessment. It was also used as a land registry to record new rightful ownership which could be used to settle disputes of ownership that had arisen in the twenty years since the battle of Hastings in 1066. One unit of measure used in the Domesday Book a hide. This was the amount of land that could be ploughed by a team of 8 oxen in a year and was equal to around 120 acres. A quarter of this was the virgate, and an eighth the bovate, which therefore, represented the amount of land that one ox could plough in a year and was around 15 acres.
