Countess Wulfgiva

The charter of Countess Wulfgifu, who gave Brancaster in Norfolk.

In the name of God, I, Wulfgifu, give to all this notice of what I wish to grant to Almighty God for my soul at the end of my days, that is to say, I give the vill of Brancaster to God and St Benedict of Ramsey; I wish this to endure immutably and to be changed by no man. This document was divided into three parts: one of which remains in the hands of Bishop Athelstan; the second I have kept for myself; the third I have presented to Ramsey. May Almighty God watch over all those who are willing to watch over this document, and if anyone attempts to alter it may God call him to justice and correction. Amen. (Ref 9)
