  TONGE, Nicholas : of Manningham.  History of Bradford and it's Parish, John James, 1886  

In the year 1577, (18th Elizabeth,) the survey of the duchy possessions, commonly called Barnard's Survey, was made.  The survey, as far as regards this district, gives a pretty accurate Nomina Villarum, and the account of tenures is very exact.  I insert the names of the jurors who made the return, as they would at the time be men of the greatest station in the parish. *
