The introduction discusses the history of the county, and its assessment; the county boundary; the Hundreds and Wapentakes, their rubrication, order, and revised name-forms; the state of the manuscript for the county; places entered in the wrong Domesday county; related or 'satellite' texts, the Northamptonshire Geld Roll and the Northamptonshire Survey; the identification of places; the editorial history of earlier versions of the notes, and the current state of the revision. Some material in this introduction derives from the original printed edition published by Phillimore (1979) and edited by Caroline and Frank Thorn.
