... Notwithstanding the Danish invasion, and consequent change of sovereignty, and the spoliation of Cricklade by Canute in the year of his accession (1016), Godeman and Toca managed to hold their own, but the other three drop out of sight, and we meet, instead, with the names of Hildred, Sidewine, Lifine, Wulfwine, and Edelwine (alias Ielwine, Aelwine, Aelgelwine, and Aedelwine).  The last is the only one known to the writer as a moneyer at Cricklade in the reign of Harold, and he flourished then under the additional title of Aelwinne. (The Wiltshire Archaeological and Natural History Magazine, v.19, 1881)
