Apparently it was called Edburberie/Erburberie/Erburgeberie back then.
You can buy a pdf of the entry for £3.50 here: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/docu ... ount=24211

People mentioned include: Abbey of Saint-Evroul; Aelfric; Baldwin son of Herluin; Burgesses of Warwick; Grimkel; Henry de Ferrers; Hubert; Hugh de Grandmesnil; Hugh fitzConstantius; King William as monarch; Manegot; Nigel; Odo, Bishop of Bayeux; Osbern; Palli; Ralph; Robert; Robert d'Oilly; Robert the huntsman; Roger; Roger d'Ivry; Saswalo; Siward Barn; Swein; Thorbiorn; Toli; Turstin; Walter; Wazelin; William

It seems that Henry de Ferrers was given the village (and 209 other manors) by William the Conqueror and that his decendents include Lady Diana. He was a legatus ('commissioner’) on the West Midland circuit of the Domesday survey.The land of Harbury consisted of work for over 5 ploughs and was valued at four pounds.

He has a big Wikipedia entry here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_de_Ferrers
