Berkhamsted Castle

From Berkhamsted Castle 

Becket was constable of Berkhamsted till he was sacked from this position by Henry II. During his time as its constable he seems to have been a perpetual improver of his estates: he greatly increased the amount of money every year submitted to the King's Treasury.

The annual farm as recorded in the Pipe Rolls for Berkhampsted was £37 in 1156, £70 in 1158 and £77 in £1159.
