Notes

Harmer, Writs, pp. 313-15, 499-501, probably forged in connection with a dispute which arose soon after the Conquest; Brooke and Keir 1975, p. 369, dubious; Gelling, ECTV, no. 181, spurious; Keynes 1994/1, p. 65, on Earl Sihtric; Pelteret 1995, pp. 313-14, on meaning of thiowlice; cf. S 124, 774.
