[Cf. Wo is him þat uvel wif bryngeþ to his cotlyf (cf. wif hom bryngeþ, 265), Misc. 118, 259.] II. in the charters of Edward the Confessor the word seems used in the sense of manor; the places to which it is applied are in the possession of individuals, and have landed property belonging to them; they are in almost every case the subjects of grant to the church. Thus the brethren of Westminster have 'ðat cotlíf Aðguðe and ale ðáre þnge ðe ðæ-acute;rtó mid richte gebirað, mid circe and mid milne, mid wode and mid felde, mid láse and mid máde, and on allen þngen swá ful and swá forð swá Ælfwine and his wíf it firmest áhten and intó ðáre hálagen stówe gáfan,' C. D. iv. 217, 7-13. Other instances are 'ðæt cotlíf Leosne ðe Atsere áhte and bequeð . . . tó ðéra monece fóden' with all belonging to it (cf. 178), 191, 13, and 'ðæt cotlíf Moleshám ðe Leófcild áhte and bequað,' 214, 6. In like manner the king grants 'ðat cotlíf ðe ic was boren inne bi naman Giðslépe,' 215, 31: 'ðá cotlífe Perscore (cf. loco celebri . . . qui Persoran nuncupatur uocabulo, iii. 74 . . . in Perscoran . . . mansi, 75) and D(e)órhyrste (of. nomina terrarum quas dabo ad locum qui dicitur Deórhyrst, i. 227) mid allen ðan landen, &c.,' 192, 6: 'ðat cotlíf Stáne (cf. cum coenobio quod Stána uocatur, ii. 367),' 211, 25: 'ðat cotlíf Euerslea,' 204, 19. In the last case it is said 'ic bebeóde ðat Paðu mí meodes wrichte and UUlnóð mín húscarl and Ælfríce Hort and Frébern mín freósócne men ðe ðat cotlýf healdeð heonneforð . . . bén on sainte Petres wealde and ðám hirde on ðám minstre hérsumian and þewwan.

Th. 45, 3 for cracode apparently should be read cwacode (v. Angl. vi. 133), but the former seems better to give the meaning of the sonaverunt in the Latin, and to agree with the preceding clause of the English:--Ús ðúhte for þám geþune þæt seó eorþe eall cracode (?).
