*HS, p. 654, doubtful; Taylor 1903, pp. 318-21; Finberg, ECWM, no. 79 and pp. 153-66, authentic, discusses MS tradition and history of Gloucester endowment; Sawyer, Burton, p. 38, on chrismon in MS 2; Keynes 1993/1, p. 128 n. 82, cited; Keynes 1996/1, p. 117, dubious, shares formulation with S 92, 583.

Note: MS 2 is modelled on a genuine 9th-century charter and is written in an imitative script. MS 1 is a much expanded document which incorporates important material about the early endowment of Gloucester minster (see S 1782).
