Notes

*HS, pp. 638, 639, doubtful; Stevenson 1904, pp. 186-91, 199, dubious; Stenton 1918, p. 445 n. 7, spurious (= Stenton 1970, p. 59 n. 3); Grundy, Hants. 1926, pp. 185-7, on bounds; Robertson, Charters, p. 275, dubious; Finberg, ECW, no. 16, authentic, cf. chapter vi, esp. p. 205; Hart 1970/1, p. 21, on rubric, p. 34 (no. 160), authentic; Brooks 1974, pp. 230-1, unconvinced by Finberg's argument for authenticity; Hart, ECNE, p. 382; Keynes and Lapidge 1983, pp. 232-4 n. 23, derives ultimately from an 11th-century forgery; Keynes 1994/2, pp. 1119-23, esp. p. 1121 n. 3, basic form of 'Second Decimation' charters seems acceptable; cf. S 340
