Notes

*Grundy, Berks. 1926, pp. 106-8, on bounds; HRH, p. 234, subscriptions not numerous, consistent with 975 x 978; PN Berks., iii. 700, bounds identical with those in S 828; Hart 1975, p. 27 n. 1, very doubtful authenticity; Gelling, ECTV, no. 116, spurious; Keynes 1980, p. 11 n. 6, p. 84 n. 1, not authentic as it stands, but witness-list taken from a genuine text; Kelly, Abingdon, no. 116, may be a contemporary document draw up at Abingdon; cf. S 828
