Notes

The place names of two of the eastern hundreds of Shropshire. Margaret Gelling (1924-2009), although educated at Oxford never held an academic position, but became an established authority on English place names, publishing a general study, Signposts to the Past and place-name volumes on Oxfordshire and Berkshire, in addition to Shropshire. She served as President of the Society, 1986-98. Gelling aimed to establish the Old English origins of Midland place-names and to link them to geographical features in the landscape.
