Notes

*Robinson 1921, p. 43, witnesses mainly of 9th century; Robertson, Charters, p. 349, most witnesses are the same as in S 333; Finberg, ECW, no. 611, authentic basis; HRH, p. 235, subscriptions spurious; O'Donovan, Sherborne, pp. 38-9, probably expanded from a genuine memorandum in a gospel-book, present witness-list a concoction, with some witnesses taken from S 333, dating limits may be wider if the attesting Bishop Ælfstan was bishop of London or Rochester, rather than Ramsbury; PN Dorset, iii. 354
