That is certainly my view - a number of points in my posts, including this,
have not been addressed, any more than others from yourself and Todd.
It should be noted that medieval scribes did sometimes get muddled with
ambiguous personal pronouns, just as writers do in English & many other
languages today, but so far we have been given no persuasive reason to
suppose this happened in the document you posted.
Besides this aspect, there is also no adequate support for the proposed
amendment of "Richard" to "Roger", so that we haven't yet moved on from
CED's remark early in the thread about "attempted correction of a document
to fit the pre-chosen persons".
