*Bond 1878, p. 7, MS 1 is a later imitation; Stevenson 1904, p. 199 n. 3, a later 10th-century copy; Stenton 1918, p. 451, cited (= Stenton 1970, p. 65); Wallenberg, KPN, pp. 177-9; Campbell, Rochester, p. xiv, MS 1 a copy not earlier than 970, p. xvi, on location, pp. xx-xxii, on estate history, p. xxiii, may be abbreviated; Witney 1976, p. 236, on swine-pastures; Edwards 1988, pp. 285-8, probable fabrication, largely based on genuine charter of Ecgberht but details of transaction have probably been changed; Keynes 1993/1, p. 122 n. 55, p. 123 n. 61, p. 129, cited.

Note. The order of witnesses in Campbell's edition is misleading. The three columns should have been read horizontally rather than vertically; cf. B 418.
