Notes

*Barker 1949, p. 57, cf. S 501; Lobel 1935, p. 2 n. 7, probably spurious; Zachrisson 1935, no. 9, on identification; Harmer, Writs, p. 144 and n. 1, generally considered spurious; Ker, Catalogue, p. 359 (no. 306), art b, on MS 10; Hart, ECEE, no. 74 (pp. 54-8), may be authentic, discusses bounds; Whitelock 1969, p. 113, probably a genuine base at least, cf. agreements with S 506; Hart, ECNE, p. 385, appears to be a late forgery based on an authentic chancery text, bounds certainly pre-Conquest; Keynes 1980, p. 143 n. 212, dubious; Gransden 1985, p. 12, cited; Hart 1992, p. 59, authenticity uncertain, pp. 62-6, discusses bounds; Dumville 1993, pp. 35-6, 38, deserves favourable reconsideration; Wormald 1996, p. 123
