   Research Notes:

"Eadgifu regis mater" subscribed charters of Kings Edmund and Eadred between 940 and 953. Eadgifu recited her title to land at Cooling by charter dated 959 which names her father Sigelm and records that he was killed in battle. King Eadred granted land in Berkshire to "Aedgyfu regis mater" in 945. King Eadred granted land at Felpham, Sussex to "Eadgifu famula dei matri mee" by charter dated 953. She appears to have supported her grandson Edgar against Eadwig in 957, the latter depriving her of her property.
