Not sure if it's any more useful than the lists of names and occupations already listed here (it's certainly more complicated) but I found this really cool and used it when thinking up a character...

Prosopography of Anglo-Saxon England

You can look through the database and look through lists of names, occupations, offices, landholdings, statuses (social, but not just limited to 'class'), etc. You can even look at what specific possessions people were noted as having in various records. So useful at least for getting ideas for names and occupations and maybe for coming up with character's lifestyles.
