Notes

Maitland 1897, p. 181, associates StŠningahaga with Staining Lane and church of St Mary, Staining; PN Middx, pp. 1, 18; Harmer, Writs, pp. 313, 328-30, 517-19, may represent an authentic writ altered and expanded, MS 1 late 11th-century; Ekwall 1954, pp. 123-4; ; Brooke and Keir 1975, p. 368, possibly based on authentic writ; Harvey 1977, p. 354; Gelling, ECTV, no. 255, citing Harmer, possibly based on an authentic writ; Dyson and Schofield 1984, pp. 306-7).
