Notes

*Turner 1915, pp. xxxvii-ix, authentic; Stenton 1918, p. 437 n. 19, some grounds for confidence (= Stenton 1970, p. 51 n. 5); Wallenberg, KPN, pp. 24-5, on place-name; Cox 1976, p. 21, on place-name; Whitelock 1976, pp. 142, 144, on date and witnesses; Rollason 1979, p. 15; Scharer 1982, pp. 91-2, spurious; Wormald 1985, p. 25, unreliable later copy, possibly genuine elements; Kelly, St Augustine's, pp. 160-2, some difficulties, but a genuine charter probably underlies the present text.
