Milred 1's subscription refers to another minster which was under the control of ∆thelburg 7. According to several scholars this refers to the requirement that the minster at Twyning revert to Worcester after ∆thelburg's death, as arranged by her father Alfred (cf. Mon. Angl. (rev. edn), i, 608), but this is concealed by scribal error which gives the reading 'Uueogernacestre' instead of 'Tuueoneaum'.
