St Ives is a market town and civil parish in Cambridgeshire, England. St Ives lies about 5mi east of Huntingdon and 12mi north-west of the city of Cambridge. St Ives is situated within the non-metropolitan district of Huntingdonshire, which covers a similar area to the historic county of the same name.HistoryPreviously called Slepe, its name was changed to St Ives after the body, claimed to be that of a Persian bishop, of Saint Ivo (not to be confused with Ivo of Kermartin), was found buried in the town in about 1001/2.In 1085 William the Conqueror ordered that a survey should be carried out across his kingdom to discover who owned which parts and what it was worth. The survey took place in 1086 and the results were recorded in what, since the 12th century, has become known as the Domesday Book. Starting with the king himself, for each landholder within a county there is a list of their estates or manors; and, for each manor, there is a summary of the resources of the manor, the amount of annual rent that was collected by the lord of the manor both in 1066 and in 1086, together with the taxable value.
