Notes

Harmer, Writs, pp. 303-6, 512-14, spurious; Bishop and Chaplais 1957, pp. xxi (no. v), xxii, n. 1, forged; Chaplais 1962, on Westminster forger (= 1981, XVIII); Finberg 1972, p. 491 n. 4, spurious; Harvey 1977, p. 358; Gelling, ECTV, no. 349, spurious, but place-name spellings suggest that the forger used Old English sources; BA Facs., p. 11.
