Notes

*HS, p. 153. spurious; Plummer 1899, pp. 25, 30, spurious; Stenton 1933, pp. 314-15, a late and clumsy fabrication but the list of ancient possessions of the abbey is probably based on an early record (= Stenton 1970, pp. 180-1); Levison 1946, pp. 200-1, 219, 260, spurious, possibly the work of Guerno; Whitelock 1954, p. 33, spurious; Hart, ECEE, no. 146, spurious; Finberg, ECWM, no. 427, spurious; Hart, ECNE, no. 33, spurious; Rumble 1977, p. 170, on Hrepingas; PN Shrops., i. 263; PN Lincs., ii. 75, Cedenac is not Cadney
