Notes

*Bond 1878, p. 7, later imitation; HS, pp. 638, 639, doubtful; Stevenson 1904, pp. 187-8, 'written by a scribe who was not an Englishman in an imitative hand with may have been copied from an earlier (spurious) original'; Stenton 1918, p. 445 n. 57, spurious (= Stenton 1970, p. 59 n. 3); Grundy, Wilts. 1919, pp. 170-1, probably refers to Hardenhuish, Wilts., but no landmarks can be positively identified; Robertson, Charters, p. 275, suspicious; Finberg, ECW, no. 203, authentic, cf. chapter vi, esp. pp. 197-8, MS based on older original; Hart 1970/1, p. 21, on rubric; Brooks 1974, pp. 231-2, apparent original is in a hand of s. xi, unconvinced by Finberg's arguments for authenticity; Keynes and Lapidge 1983, p. 233 n. 23, written in obviously imitative hand, apparently of 11th century; Keynes 1994/2, pp. 1119-21, esp. p. 1121 n. 3, MS of disreputable appearance and uncertain date (? s. xi), but basic form of 'Second Decimation' charters seems acceptable; Smyth 1995, pp. 6-7
