How did the feudal system help William control England?

A description of how the system worked and some suggested student tasks.

Extract from the resource

The system had been used in France by the Normans from the time they first settled there in about 900AD.

It was a simple, but effective system, where all land was owned by the King.  One quarter was kept by the King as his personal property, some was given to the Church and the rest leased out under strict controls.
