Notes

Harmer, Writs, pp. 315-16, 501-4, authenticity doubtful, may be interpolated, must belong to 1049; Hart, ECEE, no. 73, authentic, suggests that Wendlebury is Wandlebury near Cambridge; Gelling, ECTV, no. 182, citing Harmer, may be interpolated, Wendelbury in Oxon. is equally likely; Brooke and Keir 1975, p. 369, status uncertain; Harvey 1977, p. 346; Kennedy 1985, p. 185, on shire-meeting, agrees with Wandlebury identification; Wormald 1988, no. 87; Kennedy 1995, p. 143 n. 50.
