    • These are the bounds of Eastcourt. First from Primweald’s pit northward to the boundary way, and from that place straight along the way to the inland. And then eastwards along the boundary of the inland to the north side [translating Old English ‘northweard’] of Braydon [or ‘broad way’; these are alternative names], that is, to nut grove, and from there along the woodbank to narrow brook, and thus along the stream straight to foul slough. And from this along the way to [something may be missing here] along the green way of the heath, and then south to the old way, and thus through the middle of the hanger to Wine’s wood [or ‘clearing’], and from that to Hickmoor stream. And thus along the stream to Hægweard’s slippery place, and then west along Braydon Brook to the great willow-tree, and from that to the foul slough, and from that place southward to the old ditch [or ‘dyke’], and from that straight along the ditch to the deep slough, and from that to the old way, and then by that same way to the middle of Poha’s wood [or ‘clearing’]. And from that leah, that is from the south part [translating Old English ‘suthweard’], westwards to a ditch, and from that ditch westwards [recte ‘eastwards’] to crudmores stream. And thus by the lake straight to the separate meadow. And from the southern part of that meadow which is called the southern meadow due west along the stream for the length of a furlong, and along the headlands of this furlong due south to the old ditch [or ‘dyke’], and from that ditch along the headlands of the acres back to the starting-point, that is, Primweald’s pit.
