Clunton was held TRE as three manors by Æthelmund, Wulfric, and Æthelmund, the latter almost certainly a junior namesake of the man who came first in the list. Although it is possible that Æthelmund 34 held some of the other estates entered in DB under the name Æthelmund, there are better reasons for assigning everything apart from the third share of Clunton to Æthelmund 33. Those reasons are set out in detail in the discussion of Æthelmund 33.
