Notes

*Stevenson 1914, p. 703, seems to be genuine; Turner 1915, pp. xxxvii-ix, authentic; Wallenberg, KPN, pp. 32-4, 224, on place-names; Ward 1933/1; Stenton 1971, p. 283, treats as authentic; Cox 1976, pp. 17, 18, 21, 23-4, 25, 28, 34-5, 44-5, on place-names; Witney 1976, p. 272, on swine-pastures; Scharer 1982, pp. 103-6, unlikely to be authentic in its entirety; Wormald 1985, p. 25, broadly trustworthy; Brooks 1988, pp. 93, 96, on topography; Kelly, St Augustine's, pp. 163-5, probably authentic, although the list of swine-pastures is almost certainly a later addition.
