The Leicestershire Survey is one of at least three similar surveys taken around 1124-1129. The Lindsey and the Northamptonshire surveys were know to historians for many years whereas the Leicestershire Survey was found by Mr. Round on an unidentified roll in the Public Record Office (see Feudal England by J.H.Round).

I feel that as there were at least these three surveys complied the chances are that the whole of England was again surveyed and in time similar surveys may come to light.
