Scholarly Info
Description Decree of a synod under Archbishop Nothhelm 2 concerning the succession of a monastery (at Withington, Gloucs.) built on 20 hides (cassati) by the river Tillath (Coln). Dunne 1, nun, had given the land to Hrothwaru 1, her grand-daughter. Because Hrothwaru 1 was too young, the charter was given to her mother, Anonymous 437, who later claimed that it was lost. The matter was then debated by a sacerdotal council which decreed that the monastery should return to Hrothwaru 1 and then revert to Worcester 1 as Dunne 1 had intended.
