Notes

Robertson, Charters, p. 457, unacceptable as it stands, problems with witness-list; Atkins 1940, p. 22; Harmer, Writs, p. 574, on a witness, dates charter 1044 x 1051; Oleson 1955, p. 152, authentic; Chaplais 1965, p. 57, dubious (= 1973, p. 38); Finberg, ECWM, no. 356, authentic, cf. Wo 39 (S 1856); HRH, p. 234, dubious, but subscriptions are consistent; Hooke 1990, pp. 335-6, cited.
