Notes

*Deanesly 1927, p. 4 n. 3; Campbell, Rochester, pp. xxiii-iv, no obvious technical faults, p. 24 n. 1, on royal style; Whitelock, EHD, p. 370, Thorpe used Liber Temporalium.

Note. In Campbell's edition the witness-list is printed incorrectly. The subscriptions seem originally to have been arranged in four columns, and these have been read horizontally instead of vertically (cf. B 439).
