Grundy, Dorset, 1939, pp. 60-65, on bounds, not clear if estate was Stalbridge Weston or Weston in Corscombe; Finberg, ECW, no. 579, may be fabrication modelled on S 422; Hart 1965, pp. 159-60, bounds probably refer to Stalbridge Weston; Finberg 1972, p. 413, on use of familiae; Keynes 1980, p. 44 n. 77, on formulation; Keynes 1988, p. 186 n. 4, product of '∆thelstan A'; O'Donovan, Sherborne, pp. 29-33, authentic basis but some unacceptable features, possibly a forgery modelled on an authentic charter of Ealdorman Beorhtwulf mentioned in text; PN Dorset, iii. 283-4, 288-9; 304; Kelly 1990/1, p. 87, unlikely that present text based on charter with lay beneficiary
