*K, vol. i. 90 n., indiction and witnesses do not fit 718; PN Worcs., p. xxv n. 2, substantially genuine; Davies 1972, p. 466, cited; Finberg, ECWM, no. 406, authentic; Cox 1976, p. 29, on place-name; Scharer 1982, pp. 172-4, not genuine in present form, but largely based on authentic charter; Wormald 1985, p. 25, broadly trustworthy; Sims-Williams 1990, pp. 150-1, suspicious, but formulae and name forms acceptable and may be genuine, Kemble is wrong in stating that witnesses will not fit A.D. date.
