    • These are the bounds of Bremhill. First from the place which is called marsh-harrier coomb to boundary valley. And from boundary valley straight along the course (of the stream) to the street. And from that street to Cat Brook, and from the head of that brook straight to the Avon. And thus straight along the Avon to Christian Malford, and from that place straight to huckeam [? Foxham]. And from that to the great tree, and from that place to the sand [or ‘gravel’] pit, and thus to the steep slope, and thus along the steep slope to stile way, and from that way to black marsh, and from that marsh back to the starting-place, that is marsh-harrier coomb.
