    • These are the boundaries of the land at Grittenham. First along the stream to Ludd’s enclosure. And from that to grute. And from that place to Æschun’s wooded hill, and thus proceeding to Dudding’s sheep-fold, and from that to a (?) shed associated with a cottage, and from that place to fern down. And thus to nohut spring, and from there proceeding to Ecghun’s gate, and from that place to little down. And from that hill to Bera’s thorn-tree, and thus to boundary stump, and from that to syndhurste, and from syndhurste to ram’s fold, and from that place to the great bourne. And from that to perpeles spring or stream, and from that fons to haepes pond, and from haepes pond to long pond, and from long pond to the outer scir.
