  1. ^ Suddene is spelt "Sudenne" in the Encyclopædia Britannica Eleventh Edition and the article on Horn speculates that it might have been Surrey or Sussex but also notes "There was a barrow in the Isle of Purbeck, Dorsetshire, called Hornesbeorh; and there are other indications which point to a possible connexion between Horn and Dorset (see H. L. Ward, Cat. of Romances, i. 451)" (Chisholm 1911, p. 696)
