Notes

*B 1096, locates at Claybrooke, near the junction of Watling Street and the Fosse Way, Leics.; Phythian-Adams 1978, esp. pp. 40-1, discussion of bounds, supports identification with Claybrooke, Leics.; Keynes 1980, p. 12 n. 19, p. 72 n. 143, on formulation, p. 268 n. 72, spurious; Gelling 1982, disputes identification; Kelly, Abingdon, no. 95, dubious, Æthelred's name substituted for Edgar's, woodland may have been in the vicinity of Claydons in Alveston
