||After the death of Herolf 1, priest of Horningsea, and the succession of Ęthelstan 70, Bishop Ęthelwold 1 bought Horningsea 1 from King Edgar 11 for 50 mancuses. The Wulfstan 16 ordered that Ęthelwold 1 should measure the land which the priest Ęthelstan 70 held, specifically 3 hides of 12-score acres. Ęthelstan 70 then set about seizing Eye for himself and giving testimony that it was rightfully his. He sought out Wulfstan 16 and gave allegiance to him and promised him that he would sell him Eye at whatever price he chose to put on it, provided that he support him against Bishop Ęthelwold 1, because the bishop was laying charges against him regarding the treasures of the church, which he and Herolf 1 had removed. In this manner, Wulfstan 16 acquired Eye through the mendacity of a priest and for a small sum of money.
