The two-volume *Return of Owners of Land, 1873* was the first complete picture of the distribution of land in Great Britain since the 1086 Domesday Book. This *1873 Return* is sometimes called the "Modern Domesday". It arose from the desire of the Victorian governing landed classes, many of whom sat in the House of Lords, to counter rising public clamour (encouraged by the press) about what was considered the monopoly of land.

Beside each name was a record of the extent of lands and gross estimated rental for each person.

The extent of lands were recorded in Acres, Roods and, Perches (A. R. P.). There were 4 Roods to an Acre and 40 Perches to a Rood.
