This means the chepe or market cross. It is a somewhat elusive early medieval landmark in the vicinity of West Marlands. Its firm identification is invalidated by the seeming contradiction between the three extant records. One locates it north of Brikstewoldes land which suggests a possible identification with Lubery Cross; a second locates it on the sea shore north of the Castle while the third places it on the north side of a messuage on the shore. The middle of Cumberland Place (a compromise placing) may be indicated, or, if a known cross is a possibility, then Achard's Cross may be considered.
