*Stevenson 1914, p. 703, authentic; Stenton 1918, p. 438, probably authentic (= Stenton 1970, p. 52); Stenton 1918/1, p. 258; Ward 1946, pp. 21-2; John 1960, pp. 8, 47, on tenurial aspects; Darlington 1961, p. 20, probably genuine; John 1966, p. 91, mainly genuine; Cox 1976, pp. 16, 21, 23, 35, on place-names; Harrison 1976, p. 69 n. 15, incarnation year probably added in the course of copying; Whitelock, EHD, p. 485, no good reason to reject document as a whole, although date may be a later addition; Welch 1983, pp. 323-31, on formulation; Wormald 1985, p. 25, broadly trustworthy; Edwards 1988, pp. 292-9, mainly authentic, dispositive section interpolated; Kelly, Selsey, pp. 15-22, fundamentally authentic although details of estates almost certainly altered, incarnation year probably acceptable; this charter and S 1172 should be treated as a single document.
