  1. Sigehelm, Ealdorman of Kent, in Lundy, Darryl. The Peerage: A genealogical survey of the peerage of Britain as well as the royal families of Europe.
  2. 2.0 2.1 Sigehelm, in Baldwin, Stewart, and Todd Farmerie. The Henry Project (King Henry II ): Ancestors of King Henry II.

    Baldwin states that the date of the battle is not conclusively known.

    Baldwin argues that these charters refer to Sigehelm.

  5. Earle, John (ed.), and Charles (ed.) Plummer. Two of the Saxon Chronicles Parallel. (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1892), pp. 46-47.

    MSS A and D here put Sigehelm's death in 905, which Baldwin states was originally 904.

  6. This unsourced birth date appears rather unlikely, given that Sigehelm is described as a minister of the king in an 875 charter.
