The Doomsday Book. The Doomsday Book was the record of the great survey of England completed in 1086, executed for William I of England. The survey was similar to a census by a government of today. William needed information about the country he had just conquered so he could administer it. While spending Christmas of 1085 in Gloucester, William "had deep speech with his counsellors and sent men all over England to each shire... to find out... what or how much each landholder had in land and livestock, and what it was worth."
