Notes

Stenton 1918, p. 448 n. 67, spurious (= Stenton 1970, p. 62 n. 2); Barker 1947, pp. 94-5; Dulley 1966, p. 26, on topography; Brooks 1971, p. 80 n. 4, of uncertain authority; Stenton 1971, p. 208 n. 5, text partly rewritten but portion of witness-list seems authentic; Brandon 1974, pp. 78-80, on topography; Scharer 1982, p. 261, a fabrication perhaps based on some genuine material; Edwards 1988, pp. 267-72, interpolated but authentic basis; Gardiner 1989, on estate history; Faith 1997, p. 30 and map p. 31, pp. 40, 44, 105-6; Kelly, Selsey, p. xxx, on provenance, pp. lxxxi-iii, on witness-list, pp. 109-10, authentic basis, but bounds and list of gavel-land are certainly additions and perhaps also the reference to reversion
