*Bond 1878, p. 7, MS 1 probably 11th-century; Wallenberg, KPN, pp. 3, 59; Levison 1946, p. 224 n., perhaps confusion between charter of 781 (? of Egbert II of Kent) and one of Æthelberht of Wessex (860 x 865); Ward 1949, p. 39; Campbell, Rochester, p. xiv, MS 1 may be s. ix, p. xxiii, elements from a Kentish charter of 781 may have been fused with a charter of Æthelberht of Wessex.
