    • These are the boundaries of the land at Brinkworth. First from the place which is called Sunday to boar’s gate. And from that place straight along the linear clearing to the hedge of dutte moor, and thus straight to Geresburna [i.e., Woodbridge Brook]. And from that stream to Fæger’s tree, and from that straight along the road [or ‘linear clearing’] to the hollow brook, and from that to the Ydover [i.e., Brinkworth Brook]. And thus straight along the stream to the western part of boundary brook for the length of a furlong, and thus along the head of that furlong to (?) Etting’s hedge, and from that place to the starting-point, Sunday. Moreover, there belong to the aforesaid land five hides by the land at Charlton and another (piece of) land which is called le wode felde [i.e., cleared land associated with a wood] by the land at Cleverton.
