Notes

*Robertson, Charters, p. 275, suspicious; Finberg, ECW, pp. 203-4, authentic; Hart 1970/1, p. 21, on rubric, p. 28 (no. 79), authentic; Brooks 1974, pp. 231-2, unconvinced by Finberg's arguments for authenticity; Biddle 1975, pp. 132, 235 n. 46, suspicious; Biddle et al. 1976, p. 392; PN Berks., ii. 515; Gelling, ECTV, no. 23, authenticity uncertain; Keynes and Lapidge 1983, pp. 232-4 n. 23, based ultimately on an 11th-century forgery; Keynes 1994/2, pp. 1119-21, esp. p. 1121 n. 3, basic form of 'Second Decimation' charters seems acceptable; Smyth 1995, pp. 6-7
