Notes

*HS, pp. 620, 625, doubtful; Finberg, ECW, no. 15, authentic; Whitelock 1966, p. 101, witness-list tampered with to include Swithhun as deacon in 838 and bishop in 839; Finberg 1969, p. 68 n. 1; Hart 1970/1, p. 37 (no. 198), authentic; Brooks 1984, p. 200, probably authentic, although witnesses have been tampered with; Vollrath 1985, pp. 207-10, on synodal aspects; Edwards 1988, pp. 146-8, 157-60, may be a fabrication, based on a version of S 1438; Keynes 1994/2, p. 1114 n. 3, not acceptable in received form, based on S 1438, perhaps emanated from circle of later West Saxon king.
