Notes

*Grundy, Berks. 1922, pp. 102, 137-41, on bounds; HRH, p. 229, subscriptions consistent; Whitelock 1973, pp. 241, 246 n. 80, dubious; PN Berks., i. 14, 15, ii. 438, 453, 459, iii. 719, 735-7, bounds seem to describe the same area as S 567, corresponding to modern parishes of Abingdon, Kennington and Radley, and part of St Helen's Without; Dumville 1979, p. 8 n. 6; Gelling, ECTV, no. 68, authentic; Keynes 1980, p. 48 n. 89, pp. 49-50, 53, p. 62 n. 108, witness-list points to date very early in 956; Keynes 1994, probably a forgery, with some elements of 'Dunstan B' formulation; Kelly, Abingdon, no. 53, authenticity uncertain, in MSS 3 and 4 the date is 955
