    • These are the bounds of Ewen. First from high ridge to Peastone. And then to hlyde spring, and from that spring to the street called Foss [i.e., the Foss way], and thus to wolf dell, that is, the hoary stone. And from that to little barrow, and from that place to guuyte stone, and from that straight eastwards to the ditch [or ‘dyke’] wall, and thus along the ditch straight to the Thames. And thus along the Thames straight to the south part [translating Old English ‘suthweard’] of the old mill ditch. And from there westward to the east stream bridge in the southern part [translating Old English ‘suthweard’] of little marsh, and then straight to the boundary ditch, and from that ditch northward straight along the way to the starting-point, that is, the ridge in Peastone. Likewise to the land named before belong twenty-three acres of meadow in feor marsh; and ten acres of arable land located in ?‘Bica’s hill’; and sixteen acres and half a wood in Scefernus grove, between Poole Keynes and Kemble. Likewise the aforementioned vill has rights of pasture in the same meadow, which is called common marshland meadow, shared with other vills, namely Somerford (Keynes), Poole (Keynes) and Kemble.
