+ In nomine domini nostri Iesu Christi . Omnem hominem qui secundum deum uiuit et remunerari a deo sperat et optat . oportet ut piis precibus assensum hilariter ex animo prebeat .

Quo circa ego Sigiraed rex Cantiae tibi uenerabili Earduulfo episcopo ut diligenter postulasti aliquam particulam terre iuris mei id est quasi unius et semis iugeri in ciuitate Hrofi ad augmentum monasterii tui eternaliter possidendam concedo ac describo cum omnibus scilicet ad eam pertinentibus rebus . Hec autem terrula ab aquilonali porte monasterii tui iacet . et pertingit usque ad septentrionalem murum prefate ciuitatis intra terras uidelicet quas antea ab oriente et occidente possedisti et ideo hec tibi satis accommoda quia in medio iacebat . Siquis autem contra hanc donationem meam aliquando uenire inuido maliuoloque animo temptauerit . sit in presenti separatus a communione sancte aecclesie Christi . et in futuro a societate sanctorum omnium segregatus . Manentem hanc kartulam in sua semper firmitate signo dominice crucis roboraui et idoneos testes ut et id ipsum facerent adhibui . Actum indictione . xv . anno dominice incarnationis . dcclxii .
