Bette the bedell of Buckyngham shiere
Bette þe beddell of Bokyngham shire
bett þe byddell off bBuvkyngam-shyreG.3.112: The first letter of what seems to be Bvkyngam-shyre is such a mess that it is difficult to be certain about ink colour or hand. It would be unusual, however, for the original
scribe or the <u> to <v> corrector (who are probably one and the same) to use a capital in this position.
