Notes

*Grundy, Berks. 1924, pp. 64-7, on bounds; PN Berks., ii. 442-3, 497, iii. 752, 767-8, bounds describe modern parish of Chilton and woodland at West Ilsley; Gelling, ECTV, no. 128, authentic; Keynes 1980, pp. 97, 115, 267, authentic; O'Donovan, Sherborne, p. 50 n. 1, problem with witness-list; Wormald 1988, no. 72; Keynes 1991, pp. 80-1 n. 90, on Wulfgeat; Kelly, Abingdon, no. 137, authentic.

Notes: The bounds of woodland attached to Chilton (MS 1) were copied separately in error (previously listed as S 1541); the compiler of the Abingdon Chronicle apparently thought that they referred to Lege (Bessels Leigh).
