Notes

Harmer, Writs, pp. 336-7, 522-3, mixture of authentic and spurious material, no reason to doubt instruction to Wigod, some imitation of Anglo-Saxon script in MS 2; PN Oxon., i. 181, 221; Barlow 1970, p. 29 n. 2, some unsatisfactory features, but probably has an authentic basis; PN Berks., ii. 535; Harvey 1977, p. 356; Gelling, ECTV, no. 304, citing Harmer, interpolated; Blair 1994, pp. 110, 196 n. 97.
