Notes: It is, of course, possible that several Eadrics are contained within this entry. If not, then Eadric 8 is a particularly interesting example of a mid-tenth-century landlord, one who may have managed to acquire estates in Wessex, the Hwiccian region, and Mercia. See Keynes, Atlas, XXXIX.2, XLIII.1-2.
