Notes

*Maitland 1897, p. 243, cited; Robinson 1919, pp. 24-5, Offa's grant accepted, Ealdred's grant spurious; Grundy, Worcs. 1928, p. 59, bounds translated but not located; John 1966, p. 24, cited; Finberg, ECWM, no. 223, identifies some boundary marks, anachronistic reference to St Mary's suggests Ealdred's postscript may be a fabrication; Finberg 1972, p. 414 n. 4, on assessment; Scharer 1982, pp. 240-3, agrees with Robinson's conclusion; Hooke 1990, pp. 78-9, on bounds, with map.
