Terrett eds., The Domesday Geography of Midland England (Cambridge, 1971), p. 416). A charter forged in the twelfth century refers to a ‘market and toll’ at Oundle being confirmed to Peterborough abbey by K Edgar in 972 and may incorporate an earlier tradition (VCH Northamptonshire, iii, p. 89; P.H. Sawyer, Anglo-Saxon Charters: an annotated list and bibliography, Royal Historical Society (London, 1968) no. 787. See also The Electronic Sawyer <http://www.trin.cam.ac.uk/chartwww/eSawyer.99/eSawyer2.html>). According to the Liber Niger of Peterborough, between 1125–28 the market rendered 4 3s. 1d. (T.

The market at Oundle was recorded in a charter from K Ric I to A Benedict and Peterborough abbey dated 5 Dec 1189 (CChR, 1327–41, pp. 274–8). On 21 Dec 1200, K John confirmed the market to A Achar and monastery of Burgh [Peterborough] (RCh, p. 82a). In 1202, the day of the market was changed from Sun to Sat (D.M.

On 21 Dec 1200, K John confirmed the 8 day fair at Peter and Paul to A Achar and monastery of Burgh [Peterborough] (RCh, p. 82). In 1228, it was alleged that the A of Peterborough had established a fair to the detriment of the borough of Stamford, Lincolnshire (q.v.) (CRR, xiii, no. 406). On 15 May 1270, K Hen III confirmed a charter of 12 June 1253 confirming the A of Peterborough his fair on f Peter and Paul (CChR, 1257–1300, p. 142).
