Notes

*Grundy, Berks. 1925, pp. 110-11, on bounds; Drögereit 1935, p. 426, suspicious; PN Berks., i. 14, ii. 408-9, iii. 710, survey describes modern parish of Fyfield; Gelling, ECTV, no. 106, authentic; Keynes 1980, p. 11 nn. 16, 17, some of the formulae may be derived from S 896; Kelly, Abingdon, no. 110, evidently drawn up at Abingdon, authenticity uncertain; cf. S 757, 759-60
