The hundred and manor of Taunton Deane is the focus of current Somerset research and will be split between several volumes.



Norton Fitzwarren is a parish two miles WNW of Taunton, in the former hundred of Taunton Deane. The village is built along the road from Taunton to Milverton and is dominated by the parish church which stands on rising ground above the road. It was referred to as Nortone in the Domesday Book, and Nortun by Tantone, c.1100. It has also been known as Norton Veel and now as Norton Fitzwarren from its lords of the manor.
