Notes

*Finberg, ECW, no. 99 (pp. 50, 141), authentic; Keynes 1980, p. 11 n. 16; Rumble 1980, p. 13, on place-name Southampton; PN Dorset, i. 56, Hwitan Clife may be Whitecliffe near Swanage, Dorset; Kelly, Abingdon, no. 93, authenticity uncertain, the formulation is acceptable but the details of the grant seem suspicious
