Provenance: Bourne, Lincolnshire. Augustinian abbey of St Peter and St Paul.

Type of evidence: inferred evidence
Notes on evidence:

See M. B. Parkes, 'On the presumed date and possible origin of the manuscript of the 'Orrmulum' . . .', in Five Hundred Years of Words and Sounds: a Festschrift for Eric Dobson (Woodbridge 1983), 115–27. Bourne is suggested on the basis of Orrm's statement that he was an Augustinian canon, and on linguistic grounds.
