King Ceolwulf solicited the estate at Bromsgrove from Bishop Heahberht and the members of his community. The bishop then sent his messenger to Wulfheard at Inkberrow, and told him to come to him and the community. When he did so, the bishop and his advisers spoke to him about the estate-that he should grant it to them, so that they could obtain the freedom; and he humbly agreed to do so, and asked them to find him an estate where he could live honourably and have his dwelling in the manor-house there during his life. Then he (Wulfheard) sent a man to the archbishop and to Eadberht and to Dynne, and told him to say to them that he wanted the estate at Inkberrow. When the archbishop and Eadberht were advocating this to the king, Dynne came and persuaded the king not to consent to it. Then the estate remained quite undisputed in the possession of the community and their lord, and continued so until the end of his days.
