*OS Facs., ii., p. vi, Oswold styled archbishop some years too soon; Napier and Stevenson, p. 124, identifies as Kelvedon Hatch, Essex; PN Essex, pp. 58-9, to judge by bounds can be neither Kelvedon nor Kelvedon Hatch, Essex; Barker 1949, p. 73, doubtful; Ekwall, DEPN, p. 94, identifies as Chaldon, Surrey; Hart, ECE, no. 21, original, estate unidentified, does not appear to be in Essex; Rumble 1976, p. 181 n. 25, probably not Chaldon, Surrey; Keynes 1980, p. 48 n. 89, on 'Dunstan B' formulation; Wormald 1988, no. 37; Keynes 1994, p. 178, not authentic in received form, perhaps fabricated later in tenth century on the basis of a 'Dunstan B' charter for Eadwold, supports identification with Chaldon, Surrey
