Event S1431a    Archbishop Æthelheard 13, by the gift of the grace of God, happened to visit the thresholds of the Apostles and Leo 1, the most blessed pope of the apostolic see, about many rights of the churches of God. Among other necessary matters of business he related also the division that had wrongfully been made of the archiepiscopal see; and the apostolic pope, as he heard and understood that it had been done wrongfully, immediately made a decree by the privilege of his authority, and sent to Britain and ordered that the honour of the see of St Augustine 1 should be completely restored with all its dioceses, according as St Gregory 1, the apostle and teacher of our race, had arranged, and should be given back in all things to the honourable Archbishop Æthelheard 13 when he returned to his country; and Cenwulf 3 the pious king of the Mercians, carried this out along with his councillors, in the year of our Lord's incarnation 803, the eleventh indiction, on 12 October.
Event S1431a    Offa 7, king of the Mercians, presumed in the days of Archbishop Jænberht 1 with very great fraud to divide and cut asunder the honour and unity of the see of St Augustine our father in the city of Canterbury
