Attested: RC Glebon Colonia; AI iter 13 Clevo
Inscriptions: GLEV..., GLEVI 2x, GLEVA 2x, RPG many times
Where: Gloucester, around SO831185.
Name origin: Latin
glaeba ‘land, soil’.
Notes: Gloucester has the lowest fordable crossing of the river Severn, which makes it a twin of London = ‘lands’. RC appears to show Glebon and Colonia as separate words, and hence possibly as separate places, but that does not help to solve the problem of names in the Welsh Marches.
