Footnotes

1 Scandeford in F.C. i, 14, 189; and Scaldeford in F.C. i, 8.
2 The Skirth river rises in Dorrington, and runs through Digby Fen, leaving Catley abbey about three-quarters of a mile to the north. Thence it flows, intersecting the Causeway road at Causeway bridge, to Billinghay, whence it runs east by north and falls into the Witham. This stream would run near the northern end of the marsh, whereas the context points to Martineskyrth as its southern boundary. Perhaps the name of Martineskyrth may have been given to a stream which, coming from the southwest, joined the Skirth to the west of Billinghay near Causeway bridge. The drainage of the fens has, no doubt, affected the courses of the neighbouring streams. The boundaries of the parishes, moreover, have been altered. An old map of Ruskington Fen shews two detached portions of Anwick lying near the boundary of Dorrington, and not far from Catley. In F.C., i, p. 327, 'Martines Kerch' should be 'Martineskirth'.
3 The name may possibly be intended for 'Tyuerler'. The letters 'er' are represented by a contraction, and the placing of such contractions cannot always be taken as strictly accurate.
4 Cp. F.C., i, pp. 358–9, where perhaps 'Billeburgh' is a mistake of the thirteenth century clerk for 'Billinghay'. Cp. also Case 283, File 14, no. 346, printed below.
5 This concord relates to co. Warwick.
