Notes

Harmer, Writs, pp. 322-3, 511, probably copy of authentic writ; Bishop and Chaplais 1957, p. xxii, n. 1, forgery; Brooke and Keir 1975, p. 369, probably spurious copy of basically genuine writ; Gelling, ECTV, no. 188, citing Bishop and Chaplais, spurious but transaction may have an authentic basis; BA Facs., p. 11.
