Notes

Atkins 1940, pp. 33-4; Oleson 1955, p. 155, dubious; Davies 1972, p. 477 n. 166, dubious; Finberg, ECWM, no. 174, spurious but authentic basis possible, calendar of benefactors (Mon. Angl., i. 609) dates purchase 1061 and names vendor as Godwine, thegn of King Edward; HRH, p. 234, doubtful, subscriptions are consistent; Keynes 1988, p. 208 n. 134, spurious, but some witnesses from a genuine charter of 1060s.
