Notes

*Bond 1878, p. 7, MS 1 10th- or 11th-century; Robinson 1919, p. 28, untrustworthy; Wallenberg, KPN, pp. 14-15, 88, on place-names; Levison 1946, pp. 230, 249 n. 3, text is unreliable and seems to be a conflation of S 1610 and 15; Wright 1950, pp. 389-90, MS 1 is a palimpsest in an 11th-century hand; Chaplais 1968, p. 316 n. 8, 335-6, spurious, MS 1 perhaps 11th-century, discusses relationship with S 15 (= 1973, p. 64 n. 8, 86-7); Harrison 1976, p. 118; Scharer 1982 pp. 87-9, probably forged in early ninth century, discusses relationship with S 15, 160; Brooks 1984, pp. 102-3, spurious, may have been modelled on lost 7th-century charter covering same estates; Wormald 1985, p. 25, unreliable later copy, possibly genuine elements; Kelly, St Augustine's, pp. 155-7, spurious, probably modelled on S 15.
