No. I. — A Copy of a Commission issued in ffie Year 1650, for inquiring 
into the Number and Value of Church Livings in iJie County of Northum- 
berUmd^ and of two Inquisitions taken in pursuance thereof; being so much 
of the " Oliverian^ or Parliamentary Survey,"* as rdates to that County. 

Copies of the following Commission and Inquisitions, certified as agreeing 
with the Original Record, are remaining with similar transcripts in the 
Library of the Archbishop of Canterbury, at Lambeth. The whole of 
them are comprised in 21 large folio volumes, each County being arranged 
in alphabetical order. 

A portion of the original returns, in bad condition, having been lately 
discovered in the Chapel of the Bolls by an active officer of the Record 
Commission*, a copy of it, so &r as relates to Northumberland, was pro- 
cured by John Hodgson, Esq., M. P., and has been printed by the Rev. 
John Hodgson in his preface to Part III., Vol. 3, of his History of that 
County. The reader is referred to this portion of Mr. Hodgson's work for 
some curious information respecting the origin of this Commission. 

The original being thus defective, the Council of this Society, aided by a 
subscription, have printed the following accurate copy of the transcript, 
from the Lambeth Library. 

From the Commission it would seem that its powers did not extend to 

* Mr. Keplingy in hb return (p. 87)» mentions them among the MIscellaneB of the Rolls Chapel,

Doddington Chapelry ; and in Tindale Ward, the Parishes of Bywell 
St. Peter, Bjrwell St. Andrew, Corbridge, and Ovingham, with their 
Chapelries, and the Parish of Slaley. 

The copy of the Commission was furnished by Mr. Thomas Hudson

Papers for the year 1717. The Sheriff in the year of the rebellion was 
John Johnson, of Bebside, Esquire. 

The accounts of Sheriflfe being made up at the Exchequer yearly, to 
Michaelmas day, it is probable that those of the Sheriff who succeeded Mr. 
Johnson would contain a portion of the expenses. It would be curious to 
see the accounts of those two Sheriffs, as allowed by the officers of that 
Court, since it cost, £104. 5^. 6rf., over and above the ordinary charge, to 
pass the account of Mr. Johnson, and sue out his quietus.

No. III. — An Inquisition taken at Newcastle upon Tyne, in 1357, before 
WiUiam Hedwin, Coroner of Tyndale Ward^ by twelve Jurors^ respecting 
certain Felonies committed by Persons residing in that District. 

Hartbum Vicarage^ Feb. 24, 1835. 

I beg the favour of your presenting to the next meeting of the Antiqua- 
rian Society of Newcastle, the following translation of an Inquisition, ac- 
companied with a literal copy x)f the original, which was taken by the 
Coroner of Tyndale Ward, before a Jury at Newcastle, in 1357, and is 
preserved among the family papers at Capheaton. It is useful as showing 
that the duties of a Coroner were much more extensive in the time of 
Edward III. than they are at present. 

The inquisition extends over nine years, from Nov. 10, 1348, to January 
12, the day of its date ; and finds, that within that period, fifteen several 
thefts of cattle had been committed. 

In the translation with which I have accompanied the copy of the 
original, I have reduced the dates from Saint's days and the year of the 
King's reign, into the days of the months and years of our Lord, on which 
the several felonies w ere committed, under the persuasion that they will be 
generally better understood in the latter, than in the former mode. 

I have the honour to be. Sir, 

Your obedient servant, 


To John Adamson, Esq., Secretary. 

Inquisition in 1357 respecting Felonies in Tt/ndale.

the Lords Ivo de Vescy and Eustace, son of John, with knights assembled together from all places, with 
the people of Normandy and other countries, passed over the Sea with a strong band into England, and 
having joined battle with Harold and his army, obtained it, and so was adorned with the Crown of the 
Kingdom. In this battle William Tisoune fell, whose brother, that is to say, Richard Tisoune was the

This Henry being dead,(l) hla son Henry (2) succeeded him the third Lord de Percy, but the second 
Lord of Alnwick. This Henry, beyond all his ancestors, was most fiunous and powerful He in his 
youth, in tournaments and exercises with the lance, was always so powerful that he came off and returned 
fiom them with the highest honor. Also in the time of his youth a great dissention prevailed between 
the King and the peers and great men, so thai in divers parts of England none almost dared to confess 
his own master. And at this time the aforesaid Lord Henry, although a youth, demeaned himself so 
fidthfiiUy and prudently in aU things and to all, that blame or charge could be laid to him by none, but

good services. Also this Henry in his time most excellently repaired the castle of Alnwick, &c. This 
Henry married Idonea, daughter of the Lord de Clyfford, and begat from her, in the year of our Lord 
1320, Henry the fourth, and third lord of Alnwick, and many other sons and dau^ters, among whom was 
one Thomas, who afterwards became Bishop of Norwich (1). Besides the said second Henry, laboured 
much by many treaties and truces to keep the country and marches whole and uninjured. At length the 
Scots, unwilling to keep the appearance of peace » but destroying and committing depredations in £ngland, 
the King of England with his army being in foreign parts. Lord Henry stirred up the Archbishop of 
York and other northern lords and all came together, with their army in the park of Auckland, and all 
being by the aforesaid Henry and his so powerftd army as well strengthened, as at the first stirred up, 
made an attack upon the Scots at Nevill Cross and conquered them, the King of Scots being taken in the 
said battle, and led away. This Henry, near his latter end, had a great affection to this abbey, but, alas ! 
detained, as though by slight sickness in the castle of Werkworth, he died unexpectedly, and was honour, 
ably buried in the said abbey. He died in the year of our Lord, 1361, on the third of the kalends of 
March (2). In the time of this Henry, that is to say, in the year of our Lord 1350, John, Abbot of 
Alnwick, died in a common mortality.

anxious changes of this world, the brothers humbly entreating, onA the patron adviting, he retired freely, 
and, by the licence of his superior succeeding him in office, he went to study at Oxford, and there, for 
four years, led a praiseworthy relaxation. At length, by a raging pestilence, he went the way of aU flesh.

48 Hospital of St Leonard^ Alnwick. 

No. VIII. — Notice relative to the Hospital of St. Leonard^ in the Parish 
of Alnmck. — Communicated by William Dickson^ Esq., of Alnwicik. 

There is very little to be found in the local histories relative to this Hospi- 
tal. It appears from the Chronicle of Alnwick Abbey ( p. 36 ante. ) that 
Eustace de Vescy, who succeeded his father, 31 Henry II. (A. D. 1185 ), 
acquired the land, upon which he founded this Chapel, for the soul of 
Malcolm; King of Scotland, by exchange with the Abbot and convent of 
Alnwick ; and it further appears ( p. 36 ), that William the Lion, King of 
Scotland, gave to this Eustace, the barony of Sprouston, for the foundation 
of the Chapel of St. Leonard, which the said Eustace had founded for the 
soul of Malcolm, King of Scotland, there mortally wounded, near a certain 
spring, leaving his name to the same spring for ever, whence that spring is 
called, in the English tongue, Malcolm's Well. 

This Hospital was founded between 1185 and 1216, by Eustace de 
Vescy, for the soul of his wife's grandfather, Malcolm, and his eldest son, 
Edward, — ^the former was killed upon that spot, on the 13th November, 
1093, and the latter there received a mortal wound, of which he died three 
days afterwards. 

This religious institution continued a separate foundation, until the 50th 
year of Edward III., when it was granted by Henry de Percy, the first 
Earl of Northumberland, to the abbot and convent of Alnwick, in pure 
alms ( see note p. 42 ante ). 

A copy of the charter of annexation is appended to this account : —

The king to all to whom, &c., greeting. Although by the common eounsel of our kingdom of England 
it be decreed that it is not hwiul to religious men or others to enter the fee of any person, so that [it 
come] to mortmain, without our license, or of the capital lord of whom that thing is immediately holden, 
of our special grace, however, and for one hundred shiUings, which our beloved and &ithful Henry de 
Percy paid to us, we have granted and leave given for us and our heirs, as much as in us is, to the same 
Henry, that he may give and assign the Hospital of St Leonard, near Alnwick, which is of the founda- 
tion of the ancestors of the same Henry and of his patronage, and which is not holden of us in capite, as 
. by an inquisition thereupon taken by our beloved and fitithfiil Gilbert de Culwen, our escheator, in the 
county of Northumberland, by our command, and returned in our chancery, is found, to our beloved in 
Christ, the Abbot and Convent of the Abbey of Alnwick, which is in like manner of the patronage of the 
same Henry, To have and to hold, to him and his successors, < in pure and perpetual alms,* for ever, and to 
the same abbot and convent, that they, the hospital aforesaid, with its appurt^enances, from the aforesaid 

VOL. 111. M 

50 Hospital of St Leonard^ Alnwick. 

Henry, inaj receive, and annex, and unite the same hospital to the abbey aforesaid, and hold it so an- 
nezed and united to their proper uses, to them and their successors, < in pure and perpetual alms,* so that 
they sustain, do, and support the alms, burdens, chantries, hospitalities, and other works of piety, in the 
same hospital of old ordained and established for ever. By the tenor of the presents, in like manner we 
have given special license the statute aforesaid, notwithstanding. Being unwilling that the aforesaid 
Henry, or his heirs, or the aforesaid abbot and convent, or their successors, by reason of the statute 
aforesaid, by us, or our heirs, or our ministers whomsoever, should thereupon be troubled, molested, in 
anything, or aggrieved. Saving, however, to the chief lords of that fee, the services thereupon due and 
accustomed. In witness of which, &c. Witness the King at Westminster, on the tenth day of May. 

The well above referred to does not now exist ; but the spot where the 
Hospital stood is marked, by the erection of a cross, which bears the fol- 
lowing inscriptions : — 

[west side.] [bast side.] 








The pedestal of the cross stands upon a platform, having an ascent of 
three steps — on the north side is the Crown and Thistle, and on the south 
a Lion Rampant. 

The pedestal and capital of the old cross are still remaining among the 
adjoining trees. 

The site belonging to the Hospital lies on the east side of the turnpike 
road, one mile to the north of Alnwick, and is in the township of Denwick, 
in the parish of Alnwick. It would appear to have been separately granted 
out by the crown, and formed part of the possessions of James, Earl of 
Derwentwater, upon whose attainder, in 1715, it passed to the Commis- 
sioners of the Royal Hospital at Greenwich. His Grace the first Duke of 
Northumberland received it from them, with other premises, in the parish- 
es , of Alnwick, Embleton, and Warkworth, in exchange for lands at and 
near Corbridge.* It is now the property of His Grace the present Duke, 
and is commonly called the Ratcliff Closes. 

• An Act of Parliament was passed in 1778 (18 GeallL, c zxix) to empower the Greenwich Hot. 
pital to make this exchange. 

Extracts from the Patent JRoUsy Sfc. 51 

No. IX. — Extracts from the Patent Rolls relating to the Rebellion of Gilbert 
de Middleton. — Transmitted by Thomas Hudson Turner^ Esq., of 
London^ to the Rev. John Hodgson, V. P., and by him communicated to 
Henry I'urner^ Esq., one of the Secretaries oftlie Society. 

Hartbum, Feb. 3, 1838. 

Dear Sir, 

In a conversation here with Mr. Turner, last summer, 
respecting the great sensation that the Rebellion of Gilbert de Middle- 
ton excited through all England, in the reign of Edward the Second, I 
showed him, in the Calendar of the Patent Rolls, the great number of 
references to grants of lands, in the northern counties, that were made in 
the succeeding reign, in consequence of the forfeitures incurred by that 
rash but chivalrous enterprize ; and he very readily and kindly offered 
to copy me, from the original Rolls in the Tower of London, every such 
grant as could be useful to me, in my History of Northumberland. These 
I have now, with Mr. Turner's permission, the pleasure of requesting you 
to do me the fevour of presenting to the Newcastle Antiquarian Society, 
with a hope that the Society's Council will deem them worthy of a place 
in their Transactions ; and, in doing so, I trust it will not be suspected 
that I am seeking to evade the insertion of unpopular matter in my own 
work ; but that in it I am desirous to refer to important evidence, in the 
Archaologia JEliana, where, with other similar documents, these might, 
through the zeal and industry of the Society, be very naturally supposed 
to have found appropriate places. 

I am, dear Sir, 

Truly your's, 

To Henry Turner, Esq., Secretary to the 
Newcastle Antiquarian Society.

76 Account of some ancient Tomb Stonei. 

No. X. — EMract from a Communication from Sir John Edward Swin- 
BURNEy Bart.y President of the Society^ to John Adamson, Esq.^ Senior 
Secretary, giving an Account of some ancient Tomb Stones, discovered in 
ChoUerton Chwrch, in the County of Northumberland. 

Nocember 8, ISSfl. 

In making some recent repairs at ChoUerton Church, two ancient Tomb 
Stones were discovered, of which I send you the accompanying drawing. 
They are now placed in a situation to keep them from destruction, and are 
nearly similar to some found in the old ruins of the Cliapel at Cambo, and 
placed in a wall there by Sir John Trevelyan ; but on these the old armo* 
rial bearings of the Umfbavilles are .distinctly seen, viz., three Cinque 
foils, two and one, which are the present arms of the Swinburnes. 

The estate at ChoUerton was granted to my ancestor by Umfeaville, Earl 
of Angus, and confirmed by a royal grant of Henry III., anno 1268. The 
Swinburne arms were, previous to that, as appears by a roU of arms of the 
time of Henry IH. (Adam de Swinburne) De Goules a trois Testes de Seng- 
Her cT ar^^^,'— that is, Gules three Boars' heads argent, which arms are as- 
signed to one of the Knights Swinburne, in the RoU of Carlaverock, which 
is supposed to have been compiled between 1240 and 1248, and the two 
leave no doubt that they were the antient arms of the family. 

On the north side of the same church there is an inscription on the 
stones forming the two upright sides of a small window. Some of the let- 
ters of this inscription are difficult to make out, but the rest is plain 
enough, and is, on one, " DAME ELISABETH C. f on the other, 
'' PRIEZ PUR SA ALUM." The inscription, being in such old cha- 
racters, and in French, indicates an early date. The window is a common 
plain window, probably repaired with stone from some antient tomb in the

No. XI. — An Account of the Discovert/^ at Hewham^ in NoHhumberlandy of 
a Brass Vessel^ containing a number of the Anglo-Saa^on Coins caUed Stycas. 
Communicated to the Society of Antiquaries, by John Adamson, Esq., 
M. B. S. L., F. SS. A., Lond and Edinb., F. L. S., S^c. Reprinted from 
the Archaeologia, Vol. 25. 

Xhe accidental discovery of a number of these Coins, greater than any 
hitherto made, having been communicated to me by the Reverend William 
Airey, the Perpetual Curate of Hexham, I am enabled to lay the following 
account before the Society of Antiquaries. 

On Monday the fifteenth day of October 1832, the sexton and his as- 
sistant were employed in preparing a grave, at the west side of the north 
transept of the present church of Hexham, about three yards from the 
wall. It was in that part of the church-yard now used, which is called the 
Campey Hill ; and which many years ago was an eminence, but has since 
been levelled ; and though not originally any portion of the burial ground, 
has been of late years appropriated for that purpose. Why this place 
received its name of the Campey Hill we have not at the present day the 
means of ascertaining ; but the hill would appear to have been principally 
formed by the ruins of part of the church, and the consequent accumulations 
of soil and rubbish since the time at which the Coins were concealed, which 
was prior to the erection of the present building. 

From some local cause it was desirable that the grave should be made 
about seven feet deep ; jet, although it was so dug, there is no reason to 
believe that the person who hid the money went to any such depth. 

During the operation of making the grave, the vessel containing the 
Coins was struck. From the appearance of several of them, the persons 
employed imagined that the treasure contained gold and silver, and their 
first idea was to secure as much as possible before the event should become 

VOL. m. T 

78 Account of Ang^Saapon Stycas 

Mr. Airey, actuated solely by a desire that the best advantage should be 
taken of so important a discovery, by his prompt interference secured the 
great bulk of the Coins. Thus much spoliation was prevented. A very 
considerable number, however, was dispersed ; a circumstance much to be 
i^gretted, as had the whole been preserved the means of investigation 
would have necessarily been more complete. 

Supposing there came into the hands of Mr. Airey a few Coins of 
Heardulf, 2000 of Eanred, 2000 of Ethklred, 100 of Bedulf, 60 of 
Archbishop Eanbald, and about 800 of Vigmund, to which adding about 
2000 dispersed on the first discovery, and several which probably remain 
amongst the rubbish, we may estimate the total number at nearly eight 

It was at first contemplated that a perfect series should be deposited in 
the Cabinet of the Antiquarian Society of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. That 
idea, however, was abandoned in consequence of an application on behalf 
of the British Museum ; to which Institution, as the National Depository, 
it was properly urged that the primary consideration should be given. To 
this Mr. Airey, who had reason to suppose that by virtue of his office he 
was entitled to the Coins, readily consented ; and proceeded to make ar- 
rangements accordingly. Subsequently Mr. Beaumont, one of the members 
of Parliament for the Southern Division of the County of Northumberland, 
claimed the articles found, as Lord of the Regality and Manor of Hexham, 
and substantiated his right to the satisfaction of Mr Airey. Mr. Beau- 
mont, however, fally appreciating that gentleman's views, immediately 
signified his desire that no deviation in the intended distribution of the 
Coins should be made. The country therefore is indebted to those gentle- 
men jointly, for the great addition which has thus been made to the na- 
tional collection of Coins at the British Museum, amounting to about three 
hundred specimens. 

* Five hundred aod forty-two were in 1808 turned up by a plough in the parish of Kirk Oswald, in 
Cumberland, vix, 99 of Eanred, 350 of Ethelred, 14 of Redulf, 15 of ObbEbcht, I of Eakbalo 
with the title, 58 of Viomuvd, and 5 of Archbishop Wulfbere. The next discovery of any moment 
was of the Coins of Ecoprid in the year 1813, in the Chapel-yard at Heworth, in the County of 
Durham. See Ruding^s Annals of the Coinage of Britain, vol. L p. 228. Archspologia ^liana, vol. L

Hie Drawings which have been kindly and liberally contributed by Mr. 
Gibsone, and which are as faithful as they are beautiful, greatly increase in 
number the Coins sent to the Museum. The originals of those which 
differ are in the hands of private individuals. 

In offering an account of this discovery to the Society, I do not pretend 
to do more than to furnish materials, from whence perhaps very interesting 
deductions and facts may be drawn ; and it will be a source of gratification 
to me if these materials shall call forth the attention of persons, to whom 
the subject may be more familiar. I shall continue to have drawings made 
of any varieties, which the advantage of my local situation may enable me 
to inspect, and, if successful, make a further communication to the So- 

The Vessel, in which the Coins were contained, was seriously injured by 
the blows it received. It does not seem ever to have had a cover, nor 
were there found near it any remains, which could have had any connection 
with the concealment. 

Perhaps not the least curious fact relating to these Coins, is the variety 
of dies which have been used in their fitbrication. The dots, which so 
frequently occur upon them, render it not improbable that they have some 
meaning beyond being merely ornamental. 

The dispersion of so considerable a number of the Coins on the discovery 
being made, the destruction of the legends of many others by the operation 
of time, the false striking and blunders of the moneyers, altogether prevent 
any very accurate account being furnished, either as to the number of each 
king or prelate, or of their respective moneyers. I propose following the 
plan of Mr. Ruding, taking the monarchs and archbishops, and noticing in 
each reign or prelacy any thing which may appear curious or interesting ; 
previously giving a description of the vessel in which the Coins were con* 

Plate XXXIII. fig. 1, shows the size of the vessel ten inches and three 
quarters high, exclusive of the handle, which rises from the rim four inches 
Fig. 2, is the section of the vessel showing its construction. The width at 
the bottom is nine inches and three quarters, and at the top seven inches 
and a quarter. It is made of brass plate, and at those places where it is

least corroded, is from one-sixteenth to one-twentieth of an inch in thick- 
ness. The upper part is ornamented with twelve frames rivetted on the' 
body of the vessel (see PL XXXIV. fig. 1), each formerly holding a piece 
of latten brass, stamped with the impression of a plait, only two of which 
now remain. The body is divided below by three rows of double beads 
stamped in the brass. The bottom (Plate XXXIV. fig. 2) has a circular 
bead in the centre, of similar description, but broader. It is not soldered 
in, but is fixed with rivets, as are also the handle and its ornaments. The 
upper edge and bottom of the vessel are bound with brass, as shown in fig. 
2. The handle is fixed by two heads with pendant draperies (see PL 
XXXIV. figs. 3 and 4), and two brass plates. (See PL XXXIV. figs. 3 
and 5.) 

The ornament round the top is given of the foil size, Plate XXXIV- 
fig. 1 ; part of the bottom, fig. 2, to half the scale, the bottom being com- 
plete in the original. The front view of the handle, fig. 3, fiill size ; a 
profile view of the same, fig. 4 ; the plait on the inside of the handle is 
exhibited, fig. 5 ; and as in the profile, fig. 4. 

The Coins were found very dry and covered with dust, which, when re- 
moved by washing, left them generally of a blackish colour. Some, how- 
ever, varied from this appearance, which led the discoverers to imagine 
they were gold and silver ; and so much do some of them assume the ap- 
pearance of silver, that they would without an examination be decidedly 
supposed to be composed of that metal. It is worthy of remark also that 
this distinction applies to the coins of different moneyers ; in some cases 
the coins of one moneyer having the silvery appearance, whilst those of 
another give the brighter or golden colour. 

I am indebted to the kindness of Mr. Johnston, the newly appointed 
Reader of Chemistry and Mineralogy at the University of Durham, for the 
following analysis of some of the Coins, which he says appear all to be 
varieties of the Corinthian brass of the ancients, though it can scarcely be 
supposed that the Saxons made these mixtures from any previous know- 
ledge of the effect, either as regarded the beauty or the durability of the 
Coin, which would result from the respective quantities of the metals em- 
ployed. It is supposed that those metals which exist in small quantities 

found at Hexham^ in Norihumberhnd. 


were often derived from the impurities in the copper. The large propor- 
tion of silver which they contain, in Mr. Johnston's opinion, forms one of 
the most interesting circumstances connected with the composition, and it 
is his intention to analyse a larger number of them in the hope of throwing 
light upon some other points connected with their history. 

From the analysis Mr. Johnston finds that the vessel itself is a true 
bronze, consisting of tin 10*91, copper 89*09.

not become masses, as was the case in some discoveries before made, and 
particularly at Heworth when the coins of Ecofbid were found. The 
present show merely two coins adhering to each other, and, on detaching 
them, beautiful minute crystals of copper of a ruby colour are disclosed. 
These are red oxide of copper, in modified regular octahedrons. In these 
cases also the Coins are nearly covered with a green coat of carbonate and 
muriate of copper, and in many instances the legends are entirely de&ced. 
An interesting account may be seen as to the changes which take place in 
ancient alloys of copper by consulting the paper of Dr. Davy, published in 
the Philosophical Transactions for 1826, pt. 2, p. 55. 

It was most probably about the year 867 that the concealment of these 
coins took place, for the reason assigned at the end of the account of the 
supposed Coin of King Aella. 

There not being any complete chronological list of the Ejngs of North- 
umberland, I have thought it not unappropriate to give the present, which 
my researches on this occasion have enabled me to compile, and which may 
serve as a general table of reference to any one pursuing the Northumbrian 
Anglo-Saxon History. In this and in other respects I have been materially

Begum eorum factus est." A number of petty kings, whose names 
have not come down to us, reigned during this period in Northumbria 
which accounts for the expression, " Princeps Begum.'* The language 
of Henry of Huntingdon (lib. v. ad finem), is " confuse autem regnave-

Athelwold relinquished the throne in 904.

was slain by his brother Sihtrio in 914. 
914 — 926. SiHTRic, the son of Inguar, and grandson of Badnar Log- 
BROE, slew his brother Niell in 914. He married Orgiva, the 
illegitimate daughter of Edward the Elder, by Egwina, a shepherd's 
daughter of great beauty, in 925. Sihtric afterwards repudiiated her» 
and returned to Paganism, from which he had been converted. He 
died in 926, meditating a hostile expedition against Ethelstan. 
919 — 944, Beignwald or Beginald. From Simeon we leaiii that " qui- 
dam Bex Paganus vocabulo Beignwald" came with a great fleet into 
Northumberland, gained possession of York, and occupied **totam 
mox terram Sancti Cuthberti." He made peace with Edward in 921, 
and was banished by Edmund in 944. 
926 — 927. GuTFERTH or Godofrid, the son of Sihtric, succeeded his 
fiither, but was expelled in 927 by Ethelstan, who annexed North- 
umberland to his own kingdom. The Saxon Chronicle has ** 927.

the reign of Edmund, perceiving that this King, or his unquiet sub- 
jects, desired a new Regent, he hastened to his beloved ocean and its 
splendour." Ibid p. 229. He was again chosen in 940, and banish- 
ed 950. 

939 — 941. Anlaf. "Anno dooccxu. Northumbii fidelitatem, quam 
Edmundo juraverant, postponentes, Noreganorum Begem Anlafum

The division between Edmund and Anlaf was made in 939 \Sifne'

941 ? — 944. Anlaf, the son of Sihtbic, " regnavit in loco patris." There 
is much confusion in the authorities with respect to this and the pre- 
ceding King. In the place where the passage quoted above occurs 
it is uncertain whether the " in loco patris" means immediately subse^ 
quent to hisfaAer^s decease^ or merely "in loco," i. e. " in regno," dating 
his accession from the decease of the Norwegian Anlaf. I should 
prefer the latter explanation. He made an attempt to gain the king- 
dom in 937, but was defeated by Athelstan at Brunnanburgh. He 
was expelled along vrith Beginald in 944 by Edmund. "An.

Before describing the Coins found at Hexham, it may not be irrelevant 
to notice the discovery of some stycas appropriated to a king who reigned 
long antecedent to the first of the present series. I allude to the small 
number of the Coins of Ecofbed, which were found at Heworth. 

The Bev. John Hodgson, the author of the History of Northumberland, 
and then the Perpetual Curate of Jarrow and Heworth, in a paper printed 
in the first volume of the Transactions of the Antiquarian Society of New- 
castle-upon-Tyne, after stating the probable connection between this King 
and the church of Jarrow, proceeds to give an ingenious explanation of the 
reverse of the Coins, which he observes are all from the same die. The 
legend on the reverse, however, instead of lux, as was supposed at the 
time, appears to be rather lvn, at least on the Coin in my possession, which 
may either be the name of the moneyer or the place of mintage. The u 
is formed like T, and the N is very indistinct. The' ornamented cross has

probably its meaning, and none more likely than that assigned to it by the 
reverend and learned gentleman himself. 

EcGFBiD ascended the throne in 670 in preference to his elder, though 
illegitimate brother, Alfred. He invaded Mercia in 679, and in 684 
made a similar inroad into Ireland. His invasion of the Picts in the same 
year was fatal to him, for his enemies, by stratagem entangled him in a 
defile, near Drumnechtan, where he was slain. 

Our series commences with Heardvlf. 

On the flight of Bang Osbald, the Patrician Heardulf* was called from 
exile,! and invested with the regal dignity. He was consecrated at the 
altar of St. Paul, in the church of St. Peter, at York, " ubi,** adds Simeon, 
" ilia gens primum perceperat gratiam baptismi,*' by the northern Arch- 
bishop Eanbald, assisted by Bishops Ethelbbrht, Higbald and Bade- 
wuLF, on the vii kal. Jun. 796. 

Ethelred, the predecessor of Osbald on the Northumbrian throne, 
among innumerable other enormities, was the chief party in the intended 
assassination:^ of Heardulf, who in the year 792 was dragged to the gates

gratiam baptismi, consecratus est vii. kaL JuniL*' Matt Westmin. says 797. 

X Both the Chronicle of Mailros and the Monk Simeon make particular mention of this act of 
Ethelbed's cruelty. From the letter we learn that it happened in the second year of Ethelred's 
reign, that is in 792. I subjoin theur respective accounto: "Qui (Ethelrbdus) iftirAi^fcm ducem

dixunus post occisionem revixit, de exilio revocatus. Rex est constitutus." In the " Hbtoria Simeonis 
de Gestis Regum Anglorum ni." we find, « ciyus (Ethelredi) anno secundo (the same authority makes 
his reign commence in 790) Eardulf dux captus est et ad Ripun pcrductus, ibique ocddijussus extra

of the monastery of Bipon, and there left for dead. The charitable monks 
however, finding the body so near their precincts, carried it into the church, 
and were the means of his safe recovery before the morning. Heabdulf 
escaped, visited Borne, and sought the protection of Charlemagne, '^who 
in conjunction with the papal Legate, assisted him in his efforts."* to gain 
the throne. 

In 798f the murderers of Ethelred conspired against their former idol 
Heabdulf. The King met the rebels, and, after a severe contest, and 
much slaughter on both sides, the royal army was victorious, and the in- 
surgent leader Wada was obliged to fly.:|: 

Two events stain the government of Heardulf, but they were only in 
accordance with the character of the times. One, the death of Moll, is 
thus recorded by Simeon: **Moll quoque dux paulo post (799) jussione 
tergente Eabbulfi regis occisus est."!) The other is the massacre of Alc- 
MUND. The same authority says, ** Eodem anno (800) Alchmund^ filius 
Alcredi regis, ut dicunt quidam, a tutoribus Eardwlfi regis est apprehen- 
sus, ejusque jussione cum suis profiigis occisus est." 

After these transactions, the Northimibrian King turned, in 801, his 
arms against Kenwlf of Mercia; who meeting his hostilities with equal 
alacrity, soon raised an army, and was quickly in the field. The Clergy 
and " Principes Anglorum," however, interfered, and with their advice a 
reconciliation was effected, and peace agreed upon by both parties ;^ the

short space of two years. 

The Stycas of H£ardulf4 which are unnoticed by Mr. Buding, and a 
very Umited number of which were found amongst the Hexham Coins, are, 
in point of execution, similar to those of his successors EiiN&ED, Ethblbed, 
and Bedulf. The legends differ from the mtyority of them in the omis- 
sion of the title Bex, which omission however is not unusual in the Coins 
of the subsequent reigns. The only moneyer which as yet has been found 
amongst the Hexham Coins, is Hjsbeetcl

conquering M ercia» whose military strength had been completely exhausted 
by the imprudence of the usurpers Beornwulf and Ludeoan, EaBEBT 
moved his army beyond the Humber, and assumed a hostile position to- 
wards Northumberland, at this time in a state of internal weakness^ the 
fruits of many years of anarchy and misrule. Eanred knew full well his 
inability to compete, in his present situation, with the successful Egbert, 
and aware that none but peaceful measures could safely be adopted, he 
met his opponent at a place called Dore ; and there, to use the words of 
the Worcester Chronicle, whose account of this transaction I have given 
in a note, "occurrens pacifice, ei concordiam humilemque subjectionem 
obtulit f and, as we find in Matthew of Westminster, " regem Eandredum 
statuit sub tribute."* -' 

Although Northumbria was, on this, as on many other, occasions, reduced 
to a temporal submission, yet she still preserved her position as a separate 
kingdom. It was not until the victory of Edred over Eric in 946, and his 
subsequent partition of it into counties under the government of an Earl, 
that she lost her independence, and was inseparably annexed to the realm 
of England. 

Eanred, unlike many of his near cotemporaries, finished a long reign 
without being banished, and died in 840 in possession of his throne.f 

The moneyers of Eanred, as given by Mr. Buding, exclusive of the sil- 
ver penny, are :

The drawings render any particular explanations of the Coins unneces- 
sary. The peculiarity as to the dots may be seen in several of them. On 
a coin of the moneyer wlfheard, we find a very singular distribution of 
the legend ; the d, instead of being with the other letters in the usual 
manner, usurps the place which is usually occupied by a cross in the 
centre. Folcnod and Odilo are the only moneyers in this reign, who 
have added their designation of office. Thus, in all the Coins of Folcnod 
we find the letter m after the name. In one Coin of Odilo we have the 
letters mon, and in another the letters mo., abbreviations of the officer 


The moneyers Broder, Heardulf, Herred, and Wintred, according to 
a practice not uncommon at the time, have in some instances abbreviated 
their names by leaving out the final vowel ; thus Brodr, Heardlf, Herrd, 
and WiNTRD. 

The Runic letters on a Coin of the moneyer Brother, and also on one 
of Wintred, are worthy of attention. In the inscription brjtPmr, the let- 
ters BR and p are common to both the Saxon and Runic alphabets, but the 
F and m are peculiar to the latter only ; the one being an o and the other 
on E. In the other inscription PiNTRM><i , the first five letters are also 
common to the two alphabets ; the latter letters e and d, however, are

peculiarlj Runic ; see the '* Litterarom Runicarum varietas univena eol- 
lecta," given in the first Yolume of Hickes's Thesaurus. On the knowledge 
which the Anglo-Saxons possessed of the Runic characters, Mr. Turner 
gives a very interesting account in the fourth chapter of the Appendix to 
his work, vol. i. p. 232. 


Ethelred, or as his name is variously exiled Aedelred, Aidklrkd, 
Aeilred^^thelred, Athelred, Ethelred, Edelred, Edilred, Elreii, and 
Ethered,* the son of King Eanred, mounted the throne at his fether^s 
death, in 840.f Of the transactions of this reign no satis&ctory informa- 
tion can be gleaned from our early Chroniclers and Historians. The com- 
parative beauty of various Stycas of Ethelred's coinage, are however so 
many evidences of improving taste and execution, if not in the kingdom at 
large, at least in individuals ; and shews that the arts were not totally 
neglected. The long reign of Eanred, and the undisturbed state of the 
country after Egbert's hostile visit, had perhaps tended in some degree to 
soften down the ruggedness of the Northumbrian character ; and to pro- 
duce a few shoots of that intellect, which had flourished so healthily during 
the reigns of their Kings Alfred and Ceolwulf. 

In the year 844 Ethelred gave offence to his people, and was expelled 
to make room for Redulf ; on whosh death he was recalled, '^ et tunc iterum 
regnavit.^t He was slain in 848.|| 

* The preseni is onljr one amongst the many instances of variations in the orthqgraphj of An^^o- 
Saxon names. In a note in voL L p. 472, of Turner's History of the Anglo-Saxons, that gentleman, 
speaking of the different modes of writing the name of Ethslwulf the successor of Egbckt, says, 
'* The name of this king has been disfigured by that variety of orthography which prevailed at this time, 
and often confiises history. Ethel wlf us, Ethqlfus, Athulfub, Adulfus, ArniiTLFUs, Aoheholfvs, 
Athelwlfus, Atwdlfus." The cause of this fluctuation was no doubt owing In a great measure to 
the writers of mibsequant ages, having, In the absence of contemporary originals, to depend so much

98 Account of Anglo^aaon Stycas 






Single Coins only have occurred of Ceolbald and Hnifvla, differing in 
each case from those figured by Mr. Ruding. Those of Coenbed, Eadvin, 
Eafdvlf, Eanbede, Evdeteda, Gadvtes, Hvvlaf, Leodegn, are unique, 
so fieir as the examination has proceeded. 

The same peculiarity of dotting runs through the money of this reign. 
Some of the Coins of Alghere shew curious instances of it. 

The moneyer Leofdegn appears to have been a man of infinitely more 
taste than any either of his predecessors or cotemporaries. The beautiful 
devices upon several of the pieces of his minting, particularly those where- 
on we see the figure of a horse, probably the first deviation from the usual 
marks of crosses, circles, and pellets, will not fail to obtain for him the ad- 
miration he deserves. 

At the beginning of the money of this King we have placed three Coins, 
and in the supplemental Plate will be found two others, having on the re- 
verse the name and title of his father Eanbed. We might have been in- 
duced to give them this situation, under the idea that they might be the 
first Coins struck in his reign. At the end are two Coins, both of which 
have Edilbed Bex on the obverse ; the one has very distinctly Aielbeda 
on the reverse, the other is not so distinct, but the legend appears the 

We have again, in the coinage of this King» some of the moneyers 
adding their designation of office. Odilo, as in the former reign, having 
the letters mo on his Coins, and Leofdegn, on some of his, monet. This 
latter moneyer has also gone through all the various ways of spelling the 
name of Ethelbed. 

In the centre of the obverse of some of the Coins we have the Saxon 
CD, and, in numbers 193, 194, we also find an a in a similar situation. Had 
the M occurred on the reverse, it might have been supposed an abbreviation 
of the word Monetabius ; but, placed as it is, we are at a loss to conjecture

either the meaning of it or of the a. It may be proper to observe, how- 
ever, that these letters do not unfrequently occur upon other Coins of the 
Saxons. Had this not been the case, we might have hazarded the conjec- 
ture, that they designated the places of mintage, and that the m might 
stand for CDun£U[£ast£B, Monkchester, the present Newcastle-upon- 
Tyne ; and the a for Agustald, one of the Saxon names for Hexham. 


Redulf* or Readwlf, on the banishment of King Ethelred, succeeded 
in 844. The only chronicler who notices his possession of the sceptre is 
Matthew of Westminsterf, all the other historians assigning it to Os- 
BEBCHT, and passing by unnoticed Ethelred's expulsion and subsequent 
elevation. Here the value of the Northumbrian Stycas, as historical mo- 
numents, is strikingly apparent ; for, had no money with this monarch's 
name and title been discovered, the Monk of Westminster's testimony 
might have been destroyed by a host of other authorities, in point of au- 
thenticity and fidelity equal to his own. 

Redulf was scarcely seated on the throne when he turned his arms 
against the Danes, then making one of their frequent inroads. At Alue- 
theleie, his enemies were victorious, and the King, with his general 
Alfred, and a great part of his soldiers, were left dead in the field. 
Ethelred reigned again in the same year. 

The moneyers of Redulf, according to Mr. Ruding, are

100 Account of AngUhSduton Stycas 



Of which are new, Hvaetndd, Hvnlaf, and Eoedred. 

Very few C!!oin8 of this reign were found, in comparison with those of 
the others. The shortness of the time which Bedulf held the sceptre, 
sufficiently accounts for this circumstance ; and it is only remarkable that 
the variations should have been so numerous. Of the moneyer Hunlaf 
only one Coin has as yet occurred. Of the others there are more than 
single specimens. 

On the death of Ethelbed, Osbebcht was invested with the regal dig- 
nity in 848; banished in 862, and again restored in 867 to share the 
throne with Aella. 

Of the Coins of Osbebcht not any specimens were discovered among 
the Stycas found at Hexham ; but Mr. Buding gives several in his work 
on the British Coinage, and enumerates the following moneyers, Eanulf, 
Eanvvlf, Monne, Vinebeght, and Vinebeet.* 


Aella, or as we have his name on the Styca, Aela, whom a chronicler 
styles " non de regali prosapia," usurped the throne in 862, on the banish- 
ment of Osbebcht. This reign witnessed an event which was chiefly in- 
strumental in provoking the great Danish invasion. The celebrated north- 
em Vikingr Bagnab Lodbeok,! on one of his roving expedition, was wreck- 
ed on the coast of Northumbria, and immediately on landing began to put 
his fevourite plans of plunder into execution. On this, Aella, the then 
King, marced against him. The native army was victorious, and Baonab 
remained in the hands of the conqueror, who, in accordance with the bar-

barity of the age, tormented his prisoner with a lingering death. Bao- 
nar's sons, burning with revenge, collected an immense host of neigh- 
bouring chiefs, and sailed for Northumbria. A storm, howeyer, changed 
their destination to East Anglia, where they landed. The spring succeed- 
ing their arrival, saw them at the gates of York.* The civil discord which, 
says Asser, ^* diabolico instincter orta fuerat, sicut semper populo qui odium 
incurrerit Dei evenire solet," was still raging in Northumberland, and it 
was not until the Pagans had gained possession of their capital that the 
contending parties were appeased. They joined in one cause against their 
common enemy, and marched ^* in die Palmarum" against York, near which 
place they met the Danes, who immediately retreated within the walls of 
the city. They were closely pursued by the Saxons, who found no diffi- 
culty in breaking the fortification and entering the town. " Non enim 
tunc adhuc ilia civitas firmos et stabilitos muros illis temporibus habebat." 
A general conflict ensued, and the Danes, driven by despair, redoubled all 
their efforts against the now broken ranks of the Northumbrians. Of this 
juncture I transcribe Matthew of Westminster's account : " Tandem in- 
gressi civitatem pugnam contra paganos, sibi nimis damnosam, commiserunt. 
Nam in ilia pugna ceciderunt reges Osbertus et Ellaj et cum eis 8 con- 
sules, in die palmarum, cum turbarum multitudine copiosa. Deinde nefan

The respective accounts of Asser and Florence of Worcester bdng so verbally alike, I refirain from 
giving both. I have added that of Asser as being the older historian. There is a balance of authorities 
in &vour of the date 867» which Asser has 866.

102 Account of Angh-Saofon Sfycas 

Mr. Turaer, quoting from northern authorities, says : ** The sons of Bao- 
NAB inflicted a cruel and inhuman retaliation on Ella, for their fitther^s 
suflferings. They divided his back, spread his ribs into the figure of an eagle, 
and agonised his lacerated flesh by the addition of the saline stimulant.** 
This is a refinement of cruelty scarcely to be expected from a people in 
the vilest stage of barbarity. 

Of the money of Aella, which was, I consider, entirely unknown to 
former writers,* and is therefore unnoticed by Mr. Buding, one styca only 
has been discovered, and which I think may be with safety assigned to 
him. It has on the obverse the King's name spelled Aela, and his title 
Eex. The reverse bears the name of the moneyer Hedeiv. The Coin of 
Eanbed No. 95, has the name and title similarly placed. The workman- 
ship is rude, and approaches nearest in execution to some of the worst 
struck pieces of Archbishop Vigmund's mint. 

We may fix the date 867 to the concealment of the Hexham treasure ; 
and the reader need only glance over the account given by our Ghroniders 
of the Danish ravages, subsequent to the battle of York, to assign a very 
cogent reason for the caution of the owner. There can be little doubt tiliat 
he perished in the general massacre. 

Eanbald II. was the tenth Archbishop of York. He was Presbyter of

In 798 Eanbald presided at a Synodf of the clergy and great men, held 
at Finchale, in the county of Durham. It was convened for the purpose 
of settling the disputes about the observation of the Easter feast, and for 
other ecclesiastical matters which needed regulation. I have subjoined a 
very fiill account of this meeting in the notes.^

104 Account of Anglo^aaon Sit/cos, 

The exact year of Eanbald's death is not mentioned by the Chroniclers ; 
but from Simeon of Durham's letter, de Archiepiscopis Eboraci, we learn 
that it happened ^* Eanbedo regnante," that is sometime between the years 
808 and 840. 

It was during this prelacy that the Coins bearing the name, and fre- 
quently the titles, of Eanbald, were fabricated. 

Mr. Buding has engravings with the following moneyers. 


The Coin of Eadvlf having the name only ; and that of Edilveard 
having his title Abep. 

Amongst the few Coins of this Prelate found at Hexham, are 











Of which are new. 










of all which more than single specimens occur, except Cj^nvlf, C+anvlf, 
and EoDvLFi. 

Respecting the two first I entertain some doubts whether they may not 
be corrupt readings of Eanvvlf ; the second is in the supplemental plate. 

The first gives the title aref, the second afer. 

We find amongst the Coins of the moneyer Eadwlf, some with and 

Pincanhalth, pnesidente Eambaldo Archiepiscopo, aliuque quamplurimis piincipalLbus et ecdesiasticis 
yiris, multa de utilitate Sanctae Dei ecdesiae gentbque Northanhymbrorum omniumque provinciarum

Eanbaldus recitari quinque Sjnodorum fidem." 

For a cop7 of what was commanded redtari by Eanbald, I would refer the reader to Simeon of Dur- 
ham de GetHt Reg. Angk sub anno, and also to Stubb8*s account of this occurrence.

others irithout the title ; where the title does occur it yaries, in some being 
ABEP, in others ape. 

The moneyer Eanvlf gives the title arkp, and the name ENBiXD, 

The moneyer Eanwlf gives aer and aeep. 

Eodwlf's Coins are principally without the title ; where it occurs we 
have AB. 

In EoDV VLFi's Coin it is ab. 

Edilvard gives it v and ab, the v being an a reversed. 

The Coin of Edilveabd is without the title. 


Eanbald was followed in the Archiepiscopate by WuLSius, who died in 
881. Of this Prelate no stycas have been discovered, and we therefore 
pass to his successor. 

ViOMUND. Wtmund, or Wdcond, accepted the Pallium on the death of 
Wulsius. Nothing occurred during his prelacy of importance sufficient to 
warrant its being recorded in the pages of history, and the Chroniclers are 
therefore uniformly barren of all information. He died in 854.* 

Mr. Ruding gives the following moneyers ; 



Amongst those at Hexham, are 



not having Edilhabd, Evlphelm, or Froinne. 

With respect to Edilhabd we have probably the same in Edilvhabd, 
both being corruptions of Edilveabd ; and I am strongly inclined to think 
that Eulphelm has been misread for Edelhelm. Of all the moneyers 
there are numerous specimens. Where the title occurs it varies : thus 
we have on the Coins of Coenbed, ibep. abep. and some are without any 
title, as are all those of Edelhelm. On the Coins of Edilveabd we have 
ABEP. APEP, IPEP. ibep. ibeb. and ebep. and find none without. Hunlaf

gives the title IB, and in some instances the Coins have only Vigmund. 
One of the Coins of the moneyer Edelhelm is curiously struck, haidng 
part of the Archbishop's and his own name on each side, and two Coins of 
Vigmund shew the curious circumstance of the Prelate's name and title 
on the obverse and reverse. We also find a Coin having the moneyer^s 
name Edilveabd on both sides, which may belong to this Prelate. 


Although the series of Coins found at Hexham closes with Vigmund, 
yet, as money was coined during this prelacy, the following short notice 
respecting Wulphere may not be uninteresting, more particularly as he 
was the last Archbishop of whom any Stycas are known. 

Wlfhebe, Vulfheeb " pallium suscepit,"* on the death of Vigmund 
in 854. In his prelacy the great battle between the Northumbrians and 
the Northmen was fought at York, during which, as we find in Simeon's 
Letter on the Archbishops, ^* Bemotius se agebat episcopus Vulferius apud 
Addingeham in occidentali parte Eboraci in valle quae vocatur Hiverver- 
dale, super ripam fluminis Hwert, inter Oteleiam et castellum de Scipe- 

In 872 the Northumbrians conspired against Egbert, whom they had 
elected King on the slaughter of their sovereigns Osbercht and Aella, 
and drove him, with the Archbishop, from the country .f On the death 
of Egbert, however, in the following year, Wulphere was again restored 
to his church,:^ which he governed until his decease in 892. || 

Mr. Ruding gives engravings of three Stycas of Wulfhere, with Vvl- 
FRED as moneyer. 

Amongst the Coins are some which I have not been able to appropriate.

found at Hesham^ in Northumberland. 107 

These have, therefore, been placed at the end under the head of uncertain. 
There are two, however, which may claim more particular notice, and 
about which some doubt exists. On one, the legend on the obverse reads 
Atwvlf, and, unless we consider it as an orthographical variation of 
Eabdvylf, we cannot assign it to any Northumbrian King. 

The confused manner in which the letters on the reverse are placed, 
renders it impossible to decypher the name of the moneyer. Should it belong 
to a King, Ethelwulf,* who succeeded on the death of his father, the great 
Egbert, in 836, is probably the only one who could claim it. He was, 
however, entirely unconnected with the Northern Kingdom ; and if this 
really is a coin of his, the discovery at Hexham will be of much greater 
importance than hitherto imagined ; inasmuch as it would show that this 
description of money, heretofore considered as confined to Northumberland, 
was coined in other parts of the heptarchy. Ethelwulf was deprived of 
his dominions in 856, and died in 857. On the obverse of the other, we 
read EBELB.AP, evidently the name of an Archbishop, with his title. 
The moneyer^s name is Eanbed. 

If the name could be considered as a contraction for Ethelbald, the 
coin might with much plausibility be given to Ethelbald, who succeeded 
Wxjlfheee in the Archbishopric of York. From the state of the coin, 
and the relative positions of the letter l and its immediate successor, we 
may safely conclude that the last letter is the remaining half of a b, and 
not a D, as would at first sight appear ; such being the fact, any diflSculty 
which might have attended the abbreviation edeld is overcome. Our

fonner conjecture as to the date of the concealment of the coins wonldt 
on the establishment of this appropriation, be of course oYertumed, and 
the period fixed twenty years later. 

Amongst the uncertain Coins three are found with the legend evdi bkx 
on the obverse. From the remainder, nothing in the least satisfactory can 
be made out. It is not improbable that the practice of counterfeiting the 
Coinage might exist, and that these may be the work of forgers. 




Further Account of AnghSason Siycas, Sfc. 109 

No, 'XII.'*^Further Account of the Anglo-Saxon Coins, caUed Stycas, recently 
discovered at Hexham, in the County of Northumberhnd: communicated 
by John Adamson, Esq., Sec. S. A., Newcastie-upon-Tyne. Reprinted 
from the Archaeologia, Vol, 26. 

In the account of the discovery of these Coins,* which I had the honour 
to present to the Society, I signified my intention of taking advantage of 
my local situation to have drawings made of any varieties which might 
come under my view, and of making a farther communication to the So- 
ciety, if my researches should prove successful. 

Through the valuable assistance of Mr. Fairless of Hexham, and the 
willingness shewn by parties to submit to my inspection the different Coins 
in their possession ; and most particularly by my friend the Rev. Anthony 
Hedley, of Chesterholm, in the county of Northumberland, lately deceased, 
I am now enabled to add representations of 214 Coins, making together 
with those engraven and given with. the former account, the considerable 
number of 941 : being 3 of Heatdulf, 318 of Eanred, 402 of Ethelred, 37 
of Redulf, 56 of Archbishop Banbald,f 80 of Archbishop Vigmund, and 
45 uncertain or undecided. 

In these subsequent inspections we have not found the Coin of any 
other King or Archbishop, but the following new moneyers or readings of 
their names occur :

Of the reign of Ethelred we have as new : 


During Redulfs : 


Of Archbishop Eanbald : 

Cvl/AHVLF ■\ 





And of Vigmund : 


Amongst the Coins now given the most remarkable are Nos. 35 and 82 
of Eanred ; the former in having the letter a in the centre of the obverse, 
and the latter the letter d in that of the reverse, which d is the conclud- 
ing letter of the name of the moneyer, but differing from a Coin given 
with the former account. 

In my observations on the Coins, I did not notice the peculiarity at- 
tending many of the Coins of the moneyer Eadvini, in the reign of Ean- 
red, where the curved-backed Saxon 6 occurs. Not any other of the 
moneyers, with all the varieties of die, gives this letter of this shape. The 
H in the name of the moneyer Cudberecht, is also singular in its formation, 
differing from the other letters. 

In giving, as this and the former Paper may be considered to do, an ac- 
count of all the Anglo-Saxon Coins of this description which are known, 
it may be proper to refer to the engravings and memoirs which appeared 
in the Gentleman's Magazine for 1832, but which came under my notice 
only a short time ago. In the first memoir* the author, Mr. Wright, 
claims for a Coin then in the possession of Mr. Clarkson of Richmond, in 
Yorkshire, the rank of being the earliest Coin of the series of Archbishops

found at Hexham^ in Northumberland. Ill 

of York. His belief, from the legend and view of the Coin, is, that it was 
struck during the life of Egbert, who held the see of York from 735 to 
767, and was a predecessor of Eanbald who stands first in our list. The 
Coin, has the legend on the obverse That on the reverse is* 
in this first notice, stated to be lost, or rather illegible. 

In the second memoir,* an anonymous writer communicates the opinion 
of another antiquary (Mr. Gordon of Richmond) who had examined the 
reverse, and gave as a reading " +adealwin, probably the name of the 
moneyer who struck it." The engraving here copied accompanies this 
second notice. 

Should this Coin be genuine, its pretensions appear very strong to rank 
it as the first hitherto known to have been issued from the archiepiscopal 
mint of York, 

In regard to the statement in my former account, that not any com- 
plete chronological list of the Kings of Northumberland existed, I beg to 
observe, that neither my late lamented friend Mr. Brockett, jun. nor my- 
self, was aware of the Table given in Sir Francis Palgrave's work, which 
will appear evident on the slightest comparison of the two lists.

Walter de Tindale, Lord of Dilston, according to Surtees, died before 1 Ric. II., 1377, leaving by 
his wife Isabella, two daughters, Joan and Isabella, and settling his estates, in case of these two daugh- 
ters dying without issue, upon Sir William Claxton, grandson of his grandfather's sister, Dyonisia de 
Tindale, by Roger de Herez Lord of Claxton— a disposition which caused great disputes between 
the issue of this Walter's Uncle and the Claxton family ; and probably, in spite of their strife, the 
above deposition to be made.

To the Council of our Lord the King sheweth Roger Mauduyt, now Sheriff of Northumberland, 
that the Castle of New Castle on Tjrne is so decayed and left to neglect that there is not in all the 
Castle a single room wherein one can be sheltered, nor one gate that can be shut. Concerning which 
the Council of our Lord the King will please to advise for the ordering of a remedy, seeing that all the 
country is now, as it were, at war. Also sheweth the said Roger that he cannot go into the country 
to perform his duty as Sheriff, except by force, with armed men. Wherefor he prayeth that the 
Council will please to order that he may have men at arms out of the issues of his baiUiwick for the 
maintenance of the said office. 

Before the King 

Let him have a writ to expend 20^. of the issues of his bailliwick in the reparation of the 
said Castle, &c.

No. XilL—Eatra4As from the Minute Book, in the Clerk of Assize's Office, 
for the Northern Circuit, 1065 to 1675. Communicated by John Trot- 
ter Brockett, Esq. 

In the office of the Clerk of Assize, at York, the Minute Books of the 
proceedings at the Assizes for the Comities of Northumberland, Cumber- 
land, Westmorland, and Newcastle upon Tyne, are not preserved, in a 
regular series, from an earlier period than 1735. There exists, however, 
a Book containing Minutes of Gaol Deliveries held under Commissions 
directed to Justices of the Peace for the Counties of Northumberknd and 
Cumberland, respectively, from 1665 to 1675 inclusive. These Gaol De- 
liveries took place at irregular intervals, sometimes once, sometimes twice 
in the year, and were omitted altogether, so far as regards Northumberland, 
from 1668 to 1674, although they twice occur for Cumberland in the in- 

In the History of the Borders, prefixed to Nicholson and Bum's West- 
morland and Cumberland, no mention is made of any Special Commissions, 
in the Border Counties, later than the reign of James the First. They 
appear to have been discontinued durmg the time of Charles the First and 
the Commonwealth, and to have been revived after the passing of the Act 
for the Prevention of Theft and Rapine on the Northern Borders, in the 
13th and 14th of Charles the Second. 

For the following list of Commissioners, for the County of Northumber- 
land, I am indebted to the kmdness of Christopher Newstead, Esq., De- 
puty Clerk of Assize for the Northern Circuit, who has also furnished me 
with the accompanying "Articles of Agreement for the suppression of 
Theft on the Borders,** which are entered in the same book.

Anno 1617. — A Record of the Founder and Erector of the Market Cross 
there ; and an Abstract of the Contents of the Mayor of Durhanis MS. 
Communicated hy George Townshend Fox^ Esq. 

Upon Good Friday being the 18^ of April, 1617, Mr. Lyeabome one of his 
Majesty's Gentlemen Ushers, spoke unto Greorge Walton, Maior, that it 
was his Majesty's pleasure, to come in state to the City and that it were 
fitting that the Maior and Aldermen should be ready upon the next day 
following, being Easter, and to give their attendance upon his Majesty in 
some convenient place within the City, and the said Maior to have his foot 
cloth horse there ready to attend, which likewise was done upon Elvett 
Bridge, near the Tower thereof, being impaled within railes of wood ther 
then made for that purpose— at which time, his Majesty's said Gentleman 
Usher standing by the said Maior & Aldermen, till his Migesty's coming, 
when there was a speech delivered by the said Maior to his Majesty, to- 
gether with the maces and staff, and as time fitting in the same speech so 
made, a Silver Boule gilt, with a cover, was presented by the said Maior to 
his Majesty, which speech appeareth as foUoweth : 

'' Most gracious Soveraigne, what unspeakable joy is this your highness 
** presense unto us your loving subjects, our tongues' not able to utter, nor 
** our means to shew your welcombe— your gracious Majesty at your happy 
'< coming hither with much peace and plenty, found this City inabled with 
'* divers liberties and priveleges, all sovemignty and power spiritual and 
'* temporal being in your self,gave unto us the same again, and afterwards 
'* of your gracious bounty confirmed them under your great seal of England. 
^^ We humbly beseech your Majesty continue your fiivour towards this City, 
^* and in token of our love and loyalty, crave the acceptance of this mite

"prayers to God to bless you and yours in all Eternity.** 

After which speech the Maior was called by his Majesty's Gentleman 
Usher, to take his horse, and to ride before his Majesty, and immediately 
upon which commandment made by his Majesty's Gentleman Usher, there 
was at the same place, about 40 yards distant, certain verses spoken by an 
apprentice of this city, to his Majesty, as followeth, after which the Maior 
was placed in rank next the sword, and so ride forwards, carrying the city's 
mace to the church.

180 Description of a Bridle-Bit. 

No. XIK.'— Memoir a$toa Bridle-Bit bdonging to William Cavendish^ Duke 
of NeweaHle. Presented to the Society by Robert Bigsby^ F. B. S. and 
F.S.A.9 ffonorary Member of the Statistical Society of Paris. In 
Letters to John Adamson, Esq., M. R. S. X., Secretary to the Socisty. 

Bepton, near Derby, May 15th, 1840. 
I beg leave to offer to the Antiquarian Society of Newcastle uponTyne, 
for deposit in their valuable Museum, a Bridle-Bit, formerly belonging to 
the celebrated William Cavendish, Duke and Marquess of Newcastle (upon 
Tyne), Generalissimo of the Royalist Forces, north of Trent, during the 
grand Rebellion. This interesting relic of a very distinguished character 
fell into my hands in 1832, having, in the preceding year, been separated 
from the equestrian statue of that Nobleman during the Reform Riots, when 
the whole of the interior of the Castle at Nottingham, together with the 
statue, which formed the chief ornament of its main front, was destroyed 
by fire. 

Should the Society consider this addition to their collection desirable, on 
your acquainting me with the circumstance I shall with much pleasure 
transmit it, for the honour of their acceptance ; and in the meantime I

The Bridle-Bit which I have the honour to present to the Antiquarian 
Society of Newcastle upon Tyne, for deposit in their interesting Museum, 
may perhaps be considered as a suitable addition to that collection, being 

Description of a Bridle-Bit. 131 

a memorial of the celebrated William Cavendish, Duke, Marquis, and Earl 
of Newcastle^ Generalissimo of the Royalist Forces, north of Trent, during 
the grand Bebellion. It was recently attached to the equestrian statue of 
his Grace, which adorned the front of Nottingham Castle, and which, to- 
gether with the interior of the edifice, fell a prey to incendiaries during the 
Reform Riots in 1831. I may take the liberty to observe, that this relic 
is rendered more interesting by the circumstance that it exhibits a specimen 
of the Bridle-Bit invented by the Duke (the peculiarity of its construction 
being comprised in the jointed bow in the centre of the porte) ; engravings 
of which, under the designation of the ** Newcastle Bit," may be found in 
various treatises on Horsemanship, since that period ; and it is generally, 
though erroneously, known at this day as the " Pelham Bit" : — a mistake 
of very obvious occurrence, the family of Pelham having succeeded that of 
Cavendish in the Dukedom of Newcastle. I enclose a small print from the 
Treatise on Horsemanship by the Duke of Newcastle, which contains a re- 
presentation of the Duke on horseback, using the same kind of Bit. The 
statue referred to was erected by his successor, Henry, on his completion 
of the castle ; the erection of which was commenced by himself soon after 
the Restoration. The present castle was built upon the site of an ancient 
fortress supposed to have been erected by William the Conqueror, or rather 
by his natural son, William Peverel, which, for the most part, belonged to 
the crown from the beginning of the reign of Henry the second, and gave 
entertainment and residence to the monarchs of England. Great part of 
this castle was pulled down a little before the civil war ; yet there was so 
much left of it, that King Charles the First choose to set up his standard there 
in 1642 ; but soon after it became a garrison for the Parliament, and so 
continued till the execution of that unfortunate monarch. After the Com- 
monwealth was established. Captain Poulton, the last governor of Notting- 
ham Castle, had orders given him to pull it down ; but it was not entirely 
demolished at the Restoration. When that event had taken place, the 
Duke of Buckingham, grandson by the mother's side to Francis, Earl of 
Rutland, who had a grant from King James the First, both of the castle and 
park, sold it to the Duke of Newcastle, who pulled down what remained, and 
erected a stately fabric in the place of it. Of the present edifice I find the 

132 Description of a Bridle-Bit 

following brief notice in the only book of reference immediately at hand, 
and as it alludes to the statue in question I shall transcribe it. ^* In our 
description of the town of Nottingham, we made some mention of the Cas- 
tle» but as it is now one of the finest mansions in the kingdom^ it will be 
proper in this description of the most remarkable seats in this county, to 
give some further particulars concerning it. The situation is on a lofty 
eminence, or rather precipice, to which there is only one passage, namely, 
from the town. On passing the lodge, we ascend by a noble flight of steps, 
on each side of which is a road for coaches, extending to the uppermost 
part of the precipice. The whole of this magnificent edifice is built of free- 
stone, with a rustic front, adorned with pilasters of the Corinthian order ; 
and in the centre is a noble statue of William Cavendish, Duke of New- 
castle. The whole precipice upon which this stately statue is erected is 
surrounded by a fine balustrade faced with stone." To these particulars 
may be added the following genealogical notice of the Duke and his imme- 
diate descendants : William Cavendish son of Sir Charles Cavendish, of 
Welbeck, Co. Netting., by Catherine, daughter and heir to Cuthbert Baron 
Ogle, afterwards heir of that house, and in 1628, 4 Car. I. declared Baron- 
ess Ogle. He was advanced to the degree of Baron Ogle and Vise. Mans- 
field in 1620; and on the 17th March; 1627, 3 Car. I. was created Baron 
Cavendish of Bolsover and Earl of Newcastle upon Tyne : he was also, 
Oct. 27, 1643, created Marquis of Newcastle. On the 16 March, 1664, 
16 Car. II. he was created Earl of Ogle, and Duke of Newcastle, and died 
in Jan. 1676, leaving issue by Elizabeth, daughter and sole heir to William 
Basset of Blore, Co. Staff., Esq., Henry his successor, and three daughters, 
whereof Jane was married to Charles Cheney of Chesham-Boys, Co. Bucks. 
Elizabeth to John Egerton, Earl of Bridgewater. Frances to Oliver St. 
John, Esq., afterwards Earl of Bolingbroke. Henry, who in 1676 succeed- 
ed his father, married Frances eldest daughter to Wm. Pierrepont of Thorsby, 
Esq., 2nd son to Robert, Earl of Kingston, and by her hadHenry,his only son, 
who was styled Earl of Ogle; and he marrying Elizabeth sole daughter and

184 On the Oroeodik of Egypt. 


No. XX. — On the Crocodile of Egypt, by H. G. Potter, Esq., FX.S., 
F.G.S., Lon.; Associd Correspon. de VAcademie Boyale des Sciences, Turin ; 
and Member of this Society. — Communicated to the Antiquarian Society, 
Newcastle, January 3, 1843 ; with Mummies of the young Crocodile. 

The word Crocodile is derived from the Greeks, who gave the name of 
KPOKOAEiAos to a lizard, in their own country, on account of its timidity.* 
On their arrival in Egypt, they found a huge aquatic animal of a similar 
shape, to which they applied the same name. The ancient Egyptians 
termed it Savak, Sovk, or Souchus ; and the present inhabitants of Egypt 
call it Temsah. In the Old Testament we find it mentioned (Job chap, 
xli. V. i.) under the name of Leviathan, derived from lavah coupled, and 
ten, a dragon, i. e., a large serpent, or fish. The compound leviathan, the 
coupled dragon, denotes an animal partaking of the nature both of land 
serpents and fishes, and in this place signifies the Crocodile, which lives as 
well under water as on shore. — Cokeys Comment on the Bible. 

The Portuguese term the lizard el lagarto, and hence is derived our word 
alligator. The Crocodile (Lacerta Crocodilus. his. J of the Nile varies in 
length from 40 feet, or more, to a few inches when young. Those on the 
table are about 12 inches in length. 

This animal was worshipped by the ancient Egyptians, or rather, I should 
say, in certain parts of Egypt ; for, while some of the inhabitants worshipped 
it» others made fierce war upon them for so doing. Such was the cause of 
quarrel between the Ombites and Tentyrites described by Juvenal, who 
tells us, that to such a pitch did religious hatred go, that even the prisoners 
taken in battle were 6aten.f

The Crocodile was worshipped at Coptos, Ombos, and at Arsinoe, or, as 
it was previously called, the City of Crocodiles (Crocodilopolis). At Thebes 
also this animal was worshipped. The people of Ombos dug tanks for 
them, and taught them to come when called. At Memphis, the priests 
kept one, which was perfectly tame. It was adorned with jewels, and led 
about in ceremonial processions ; and at Crocodilopolis, they were so tame, 
that they would take the food from the hands of the feeders. Strabo speaks 
of one which his host at Crocodilopolis took him to see. He was a man of 
consideration, and in showing Strabo and his party the sacred curiosities of 
the place, conducted them to the brink of the lake, having taken with him 
from the supper table a cake, some roast meat, and a cup of wine. They 
found the animal on the shore of the lake ; and while some of the priests 
opened its mouth, one put in the cake, and then the meat, after which the 
wine was poured in. The Crocodile then took to the water, and passed 
over to the other side, to receive the offerings made to it by other parties.* 

Various reasons have been assigned for the worshipr of this animal. 

1. Because it afforded protection from Lybian and Arabian robbers, as 
none would venture to cross a river or canal where so fierce an animal 
existed. Thus the Dutch filled the ditches of Batavia with Crocodiles to 
prevent desertion, as most of their soldiers were enlisted by force. Certain 
it is, that the Crocodile of the Nile is the most ferocious of its kind ; and we

are told that in places where they were worshipped, their numbers increased 
to such an extent, ** that it was not safe for any one to wash his feet, or draw 
water, at the river ; and no one could walk near the edge of the stream, 
either in the vicinity of Ombos, Coptos, or Arsinoe, without extreme 
caution.**— ^/ea«, X 24. WWdmm, Vol. 11. 280. 

2. M. Pauw, and others, have supposed that as the Crocodile could only 
exist where water was to be found, there would of course, be a necessity 
for keeping the canals open, and that the worship of this animal would thus 
ensure a plentiful supply of pure water, where the towns were at some dis- 
tance from the Nile. 

I might notice other opinions on this subject, if time would allow. I 
shall, therefore, merely mention what has seemed to me the most probable 
reason. If we look at the habits of the animal, we find that he devours 
nothing but putrid animal matter. Thus, on seizing a man, or any other 
animal, he drags him under water to drown him ; then placing the body 
under some ledge of rock or mud, does not devour it until putrefiu^on has 
taken place. Now, when we consider that the Nile is the only source from 
which water can be derived throughout the whole of Egypt, how wonder- 
fully adapted does such an animal become to destroy the most disgusting 
matter which water can hold in solution, viz., putrid animal substances. 
It is in fact the great scavenger of the deep. Whenever the Egyptians 
wished to preserve any animal, they immediately made it sacred; and 
there can be no doubt that they were well acquainted with the habits of 
this animal, and understood its utility. But what in the first instance was 
merely intended to protect, soon constituted it an object of worship, — a 
God. And so in&tuated did the worshippers of this animal become, that 
mothers rejoiced when their children were devoured by any of them, be- 
lieving that great honour was conferred upon them by the god, who con- 
descended to feed upon their offspring. 

The Crocodile was not, however, venerated in every part of Egypt. I 
have already stated that it was the cause of war between the Ombites and 
Tentyrites. Old writers tell us, that the inhabitants of Tentyris, AppoUi- 
nopolis, Heracleopolis, and the island of Elephantina, &c., held it in parti- 
cular execration, looking upon it as the emblem of the Evil Being, or 

On the Crocodile of Egypt. 137 

Typhon. In some of these towns the Crocodile was eaten. The Croco- 
dile is now only found in Upper Egypt, though in former times it was even 
common in the Delta. Manfaloot appears to be the most northern point 
at which these animals are now found. 

The bodies of all sacred animals, aa soon as life was extinct, were wrap- 
ped in linen, prepared with oils and aromatic substances, and then deposit- 
ed in a sacred tomb. The linen used to envelop the mummies on the 
table, appears to have previously formed portions of garments, and most 
probably, priests' garments, as in some cases we find various devices em- 
broidered upon it, such as hearts, rings, &c. 

The most extensive Crocodile tombs at present known, are about five 
miles from Manfaloot, on the eastern bank of the Nile. From these ap- 
parently interminable caves, the present specimens were brought. 

'^The Grottoes of Maabdeh" (so called, from a village near them of that 
name), are entered by a perpendicular cleft in the limestone rock, of about 
12 feet in depth. After which, you creep on your stomach, through a 
passage so small, that I nearly stuck fast, and almost fainted from the heat 
and exertion. As soon as we had crept through this narrow entrance, we 
found ourselves in a good-sized chamber, from which passages ran in vari- 
ous directions. Along several of these we proceeded, at one time crawling 
flat on the ground, at another merely stooping, and then scrambling over 
large masses of rock. The heat, dust, and the odour of mummies over 
which we frequently walked (and which, in many places, formed the floor of 
the gallery), were offensive in the extreme. Thousands of bats flew around 
us, coming every moment in contact with our faces, hands, and torches, 
thus threatening to involve us in perfect darkness. We had almost given 
up our search, when we found our further progress stopped, by thousands of 
Crocodile, and human mummies. From this immense collection, the pre- 
lent mummies were brought. 

Each young Crocodile is wrapped in a piece of old linen cloth, and then 
formed into bundles, by fastening 5 or 6 together with thread. The large 
ones are single. 

The human mummies frequently consist of merely parts of the body, 
thus we find the upper or lower half, separated from the rest, and forming

a distinct portion. These portions are wrapped in linen, and then bound 
round with palm leaves, which serve as an external covering. In no in- 
stance did I perceive any wooden case or coffin ; many of the human mum- 
mies had the skin covered with gilding. 

Whether these mummies were deposited at an early period of the Egyp- 
tian empire, or in later and more barbarous times, it is now impossible to say. 
It is evident from such extensive tombs, that where Manfaloot now stands, 
or near it, there must have been some ancient town, and as it has not been 
noticed by either Greek or Roman writers, we may conclude existed at a 
very early period. We may, therefore, reasonably suppose that these 
tombs are very ancient.

My dear Sir,

which I shall be obliged by your presenting for me to the Antiquarian So- 
ciety. Mr. Hodgson gave me lately a printed list of Roman Altars, &c., 
in the Collection of the Society ; in which I find four without donor's 
name, or locality. Excepting one, they were all given by me ; and were 
all, I believe, found at or near the same place, Walbottle. They are those 
numbered in the list 85, 86, 87, 88. I find a note also of another, which 
does not appear in the list ; but of which I sent you the dimensions, that 
a place might be prepared for it. It may possibly be one of those, which 
Mr. Hedley had given to me ; but which, when he was forming his collec- 
tion at Little Chesters, I returned to him, under the understanding, that, 
on his death, they were all to come to the Society. No 85 of the Soci- 
ety's list most certainly is not Horsley's No. IV.

This inscription was found many years ago at the Roman Station of 
Bremenium (Riechester). Erroneous copies of it have been published in 
the Archseologia, Vol. VII., pJ 83, and in the Transactions of the Royal 
Society, Vol. XLIV., p. 344. The Cohort of the Varduli is mentioned 
in two inscriptions given by Horsley {vide pi. 81, fig. 04, and pi. 57, fig. 26), 
the former was also found at Bremenium, the latter at Epiacum (Lan- 

The erasures in the last two lines have certainly not been made for the 
purpose of making room for bars, as suggested by Dr. Sharpe in his com- 
munication to the Royal Society, but probably were caused by the erasure 
of the name which once stood there, on the disgrace of the bearer of it. 

Calpumius Agricola was Propraetor of Britain under Marcus Aurelius, — 
{vide Horsley, p. 226, Northum. No. LIII.), could hia name have been 
erased from this inscription ? which, according to Mr. Nichols' account in 
the Crenilemairis Magazine^ December 1830, maybe decyphered as follows : 
— " Imperatori Caesari Marco Aurelio Severe Antonino Pio Felici Augusto, 
Parthico Maximo, Britannico Maximo, Germanico Maximo, Pontifici 
Maximo, Tribunitise Potestatis XVIII. Imperialis III. Consulis IIII. 
Proconsuli, Patri Patriae, Cohors Prima Fida Vardulorum, Civium Romano- 
rum Equitum, Antoniniana fecit sub cura 

Legati Augustalis Propraetoris.*' 

Mr. Nichols states the inscription to be a dedication to the Emperor 
Caracalla, whose titles are all here set forth at full length. Its date, the 
eighteenth of his tribunitial and the third of his imperial authority (for III. 
instead of II., it either is, was, or should have been), answers to the year of 
Rome 068, and the year of our Lord 215. 

A fragment of a monumental stone from Little Chesters, found there 
near Hadrian's Wall, in 1818, and given to me with several others, since 
returned to him, by the late Rev. A. Hedley, the owner of that station.

Mr. Nichols further describes this inscription thus : — " It is 15 inches in 
width. The inscription is too imperfect to form the grounds of safe con- 
jecture ; though we might imagine that we have found again the VarduloR. 
Civium "ELomanorum 'Equitum: and in the fourth line the letters MVC 
answer to a small stone, found at Walbottle (Horsley X.), inscribed

tion apparently represents a military standard. 

The above is a " third fragment, which is 14 inches in width, and had 
been for some time in Mr. Trevelyan*s possession ; and he rather believes 
it was found, with the preceding, at Little Chesters. It appears to comme-

morial of the same cohort was seen by Camden at Bangor, inscribed

142 Account of an Ea^cavation 

No. XXIL — Account of an Ejtcavation recently made unthin the Roman 
Station of Cilumum. By John Clayton^ Esq. — Communicated in a 
Letter to the Secretaries. 

Chesters, 6th November, 1843. 


Understanding that a statement of the results of a recent excavation 
within the Roman Station of Cilumum is desired by your Society, I will 
endeavour to supply such a statement, begging, however, that it may be 
received as that of a very unlearned antiquary. 

The Eastern Rampart of the Station of Cilumum (the sixth per Uneam 
vaUi, according to the Notitia Imperii) ranges nearly two hundred yards 
along the right bank of the North Tyne River; the station contains an 
area of nearly eight acres, and though the surface has been for many years 
grass-grown, yet the whole outline of the fortifications is still distinctly 
visible. About the middle of this rampart may be traced the gate through 
which the military way, sheltered by the wall of Sevems, passed from the 
camp down to the bridge across the Tyne, of which the massive remains 
still cumber the stream ; vrithin the rampart and to the south of the gate, 
the surface of the groimd was somewhat elevated, and formed a green 
knoll, which seemed to invite antiquarian research, and on the application 
to this elevated spot of the pickaxe and spade, the baths and Sudatorium 
of the station were discovered. The removal of the earth on the west 
side of the buildings disclosed the entrance by a flight of steps, much worn 
by the feet of the passenger ; these steps lead into a saloon or vestibule, 
from which passages diverge, to the right and left, into other apartments. 
In the room on the left hand was found, in good preservation, a Bath 
lined with red cement ; beyond this are two apartments (apparently a Su- 
datorium), the floors of which are composed of two layers of flags, with a 

made at the Roman Station of CUurnum. 148 

layer of red cement between them, and are supported on pillars three feet 
high ; some of those pillars are of stone and others of square flat bricks. 
At the east end of the Sudatorium are the remains of the furnaces, and the 
soot in the flues was found as fresh as if it had been produced by fires 
lighted the day before. In the room on the right hand of the saloon — 
which seems to have been more disturbed — ^there are less distinct remains 
of Baths, with flues communicating with them ; but in the room beyond it 
(a Sudatorium) the floor of flags covered with plaster, and supported by 
pillars of stone two feet high is preserved entire, though pressed down in 
some places by the weight which has been upon it. When this station 
ceased to be used for the purposes of war, and the Roman legions had per- 
manently left the island, it would seem that the inhabitants of the country, 
in order to make the land productive as soon as possible have thrown down 
the upper part of the walls of the buildings, which have fiEdlen inwards, and 
they have then levelled the surface and covered it with earth, under the 
protection of which, these remains of Roman luxury have lain undisturbed 
for 1400 years. 

I send you a ground plan of the 
buildings so £ar as they have been 
explored ; you will observe that, 
though on a much larger scale, 
they resemble in shape and ar- 
rangement the baths described by 
Sir William Gell as having been 
discovered in Italy, amongst the 
ruins of the ancient city of Stabise. 
In the room in which the Bath 
is, was found the Statue of a River 
God, whether representing the 
Tiber, or Tyne does not appear ; 
the figure (about 4 feet in length)

is not without some gracefulness of attitude and proportions. On the next 
page you have a sketch of it. 


Account of an E^cavdlion 

There have been likewise found in the buildings and the passages com- 
municating with them a stone, with the Oenturial mark on it, and the 
name SIMILIS, and several other relics of their former occupants, which 
I will briefly enimierate, viz. : — 

A Fibula of the ancient mixed brass, similar to that in Gordon, pi. 50, 
fig. 9, and here drawn of the fiill size.

A massive silver signet Ring, with a cornelian stone, on which is engraved 
a cock pecking an ear of wheat. — See fig. 3. 

A Stylus of brass and two of ivory, two Javelin Heads, and upwards of 
fifty Coins of various Emperors, from Hadrian down to Gratian^-none of 
them of any value or rarity, but, nevertheless, I subjoin a list of the seve- 
ral varieties, as exhibiting the ordinary cuirency of the Roman camp dur- 
ing the last 200 years of the sway of that people in Britain.

148 Account qfsome Roman Belies^ 

No, XXin. — Account of the Discovery qfsome Roman Relics in the West- 
em Suburbs of Pons JElii. — Communicated by Mr. Oeo. B. Richardson. 

On the morning of December 30, 1843, as the workmen of Mr. Amor 
Spoor were engaged in the demolition of White Friar Tower, part of the 
town walls of Newcastle, which was situate near the foot of South Street, 
and overlooking the river Tyne, they found at about ten or eleven feet 
below the surface of the floor, and immediately under it, the bed of an old 
water-course, which has, in former times, run down the side of the hill to 
the river. Lying in its bed was found (with a quantity of Roman roofing 
tiles, &c.) an altar, almost wholly shorn of its inscription ; but, fortunate- 
ly, the part bearing the name of the deity, has been spared. The altar 
(which is sixteen inches in height) has been well carved in a reddish 

In digging, the top of the altar was accidentally broken off; but the 
other defects are coeval with the erection of the tower. It is evident that 
that it is dedicated to Silvanus, a god to whom dedications in the north of 
England and Scotland are rare : two having occurred in Cumberland ; one 
in Scotland ; and this is but the second which has been discovered in Nor- 
thumberland. It is evident that until the period of the erection of the 
tower, some Roman building (the western suburbs of the station of Pons 
JSM) had remained, and in order to form a more advantageous site, and 
to obtain a substantial foundation for the tower, the clay raised from the 
moat a little to the northward, together with the altar, bricks, tiles, &c., 
from the ruined dwellings have been thrown into the bed of the water- 
course for that purpose. 

Where the erection was made, the direction of the water-course was 
easily discernible by the difference of the soil, fragments of coal, pottery, 
and other deposits washed into it. 

found in the Western Suburbs of Pons JEUi. 140 

It may also be mentioned, that about two years and a half ago, there was 
found, at a short distance from the wall on the inside, a British urn, in a 
coffin-shaped chamber, a few inches below the present surface ; a circum- 
stance which would lead us to conclude (what has been before advanced) 
that these banks had at least been a British residence, if not a fort^ before 
the Roman occupation thereof, particularly as the military tactics of the 
latter generally led them to erect their stations on the sites occupied by 
their predecessors. 

N. B. Another altar, of the same size but without any inscription, was 
found in the same place, on Tuesday morning, the 9th January, 1844.

No. XXIV. — Notices respecting the Roman Station of Habitancum (now 
Risingham)^ in various Communications to John AdamsoNj Esq.^ Secre- 
tary to the Society, by Sir J. E. Swinburne^ Bart^ President^ Arthur 
TreveltaNj Esq^ Mr. John Bbli^ and Mr. Richard Shanks, Son of 
Mr. Shanks, the Oumer of the Station. 

Extracts from Letters from Sir X E. Swinburne, Bart., addressed to 
THE Secretary, in January and February, 1840. 

I HAVE just heard of a very recent discovery, which, if my information be 
correct, and not exaggerated, appears to be highly interesting ; and I shall 
request Mr. Sopwith to go and examine. On the property of Mr 
Shanks, at Bisingham, near Woodbnm, in digging for some purpose, at a 
considerable depth, the workmen came to the walls of a building above 10 
feet long, and during the excavation a quantity of coins, said to be silver 
and copper, and several Boman altars were found. If so, it is well worth in- 
vestigating, and might be worth the attention of the Society of Antiquaries. 
Mr. Walker has been at Bisingham, and sent me some very interesting 
details, which I will forward you as soon as I have seen Mr. Sopwith after 
his visit. 

I send you the epitome of Mr. Walker^s observations on his visit to 
Bisingham, and what I gather from Mr. Sopwith's notes. One altar, or 
part of one, has been brought to his brother's near here ; and I will go and 
see it. l%e two accounts corroborate each other in most points. Before 
any regular account is drawn up for either publication in our Transactions, 
or to lay before the Society in London, it will be better to wait for both 
these gentlemen's second visit ; but they may be shown to the Society in 
the mean time. 

The area of the station is about 183 yards square^ comprising what 

Roman Station qf. Habitancum. 151 

appears to h&ye been buildings. The excavation is not carried on over 
a tenth part, of where the recently discovered buildings are visible, about 
18 yards square. The walls are covered with a kind of plaster, which 
appears to have been exposed to fire, and there is so much burned sub- 
stances amongst the rubbish, it is probable the whole has been set fire to 
when the Romans abandoned the station. What Mr. Walker noticed 
were the altars and other articles. 

1. An altar, handsome in form and finish, the inscription not very clear. 

2. Another altar, not so handsome in form, but the letters more perfect, 
and the following inscription both on the altar and pedestal or base. 


There is channelled on one side a flat-shaped figure, on the other an 
ampulla or jug and a hatchet. Dimension of both altars 3 feet by 1 foot 
8 inches ; pedestal 3 feet by 1 foot 10 inches ; both seem to have under- 
gone the action of fire. 

One silver coin very perfect, Greta. Two not so perfect, copper or alloy. 

Seven smaller brass and copper coins — Augustus and Antoninus on 
some of theuL 

Two brass medals of some of the emperors. 

Two brass ornaments as if for belts or caps, an iron scrs^er, a knife, and 
a writing stile. 

Amongst other fragments were various pieces of urns, and the bottom 
of a small lachrymatory with the word Victoria upon it. 

Nails, clamps, &c„ a piece of opaque, and a piece of coloured glass. 

The small apartment, hastily explored, may probably, have been part of 
a bath establishment. The Hypocaustria or Sudatoria. 

Mil Arthur Trsvelyan's Letter addressed to Mr. Adamson. 

Wallington, I7th March, 1840. 
On the 11th inst« I went to Rtsingham and found that an excavation, of 

162 Notices rwpedtmg tk$ 

no great extent, had been toade (by Mr. Shanks, the eon of the o^mer), in 
one of the angles of the station. Several different articles were founds of 
which the following account will take notice :-^A wall of 9 feet in height, 
built in regular courses of masonry, but not its full height ; as much must 
have fallen down. A large water tank, lined with a mixture of lime, 
pounded bricks, and charcoal ; the lining is at least 2 inches thick at the 
bottom. Two altars, very perfect, with large inscriptions (only slightly 
damaged), a good deal of ornament on the upper part of them, and on the 
sides are sculptured utensils used at sacrifices, such as an axe to fell the 
victim, a cleaver, and incense holders. One of the altars had formerly 
stood on a large flat stone, raised on a square hollow pedestal of masonry» 
the flat stone projected beyond the altar, and had an incense holder cut 
out on its top in front, and a single line of well-cut letters. On its front 
edge a much shattered small free stone figure dressed in armour. A drain 
was opened close to the tank which was nearly filled with sand. One of the 
altars has a wreath of leaves round its top^ Four silver and six copper 
coins, which Mr. Shanks said were concealed in shells and built into the 
masonry below the flat stone. The shells were a cockle, and oyster, a sea 
muscle, and two river muscles. Of iron, a spear head, a hooked knife like 
a small sickle, and other articles too corroded to make out the use of. Of 
copper, a clasp for a waist-band, a writing stile about 4 inches long, a thick 
small ferrule, like those used for watch chains. Also were found pieces of 
pottery, glass, and the tusk of a wild boar. 

Mr. Shanks does not seem inclined to part with any of the antiquities. 
He has a taste for collecting, which induces him to look keenly out for the 
antiquities, and afterwards to take care of them, I would recommend 
your Society to send a Draughtsman and Antiquarian to view them, as 
their account and sketches would make an interesting paper in your tran-

Some short time after these communications had been laid before the 
Society, Mr. John Bell applied to Mr. Shanks to be favoured with draw- 
ings of the Altars, or rubbings of the inscriptions upon them, describing 
the manner of doing so ; and sent an account of the Roman remains al- 
ready in the collection of the Society. To this Mr. Shanks immediately 
replied : — " With regard to the taking of the inscriptions on the stones in 
my possession, there is a much better way than that you speak of, and which 
I shall do : that is, to send them all down to you, to be deposited in the 
Society's collection." And soon afterwards the Council had the gratifica- 
tion of placing Mr. Shanks's donation of the whole of the inscribed Stones 
found by him at Risingham, in their Arcade. The most interesting of 
these are shewn on the accompanying Plate, and are here given, with their 
supposed readings i—^

Mr. Jno. Bell's Account of Risinoham. 

By an invitation from Mr. Richard Shanks to visit the remains of this 
Roman station, and under the expectation of examining the baths he had 
opened, where the altars, &c., were discovered, which he afterwards pre- 
sented to our Society, Mr. Clayton and I went there in the third week of 
last October; we were disappointed in finding that the remains of the 
baths were removed, and the excavations filled up, — ^Mr. Shanks inform- 
ing us that he was obliged to do so, because that after the Redesdale Iron 
Works were laid in, and the workmen unemployed, they came in such 
numbers to the station, he was glad to get rid of them, which he accom- 
plished at the cost of demolishing the object of their curiosity. To com- 
pensate, however, for our disappointment, he gave us leave to make what- 
ever excavations we pleased ; and, at a place close adjoining to the site of 
the baths, we saw a quantity of coals ; Mr. Shanks informing us that he 
had led away and burnt above a cart load, and that it was near to where 
the coals were, he found the beautiful fibula, which he had presented to 
the Society. Mr. Clayton left me, and during my stay, I closely inspected 
the immediate vicinity of the station, and found that the river Reed must 
have run much nearer to it when the station was first built, and when the 
bridge was standing ; and that there had been an outbreak of the river, 
which threatened the destruction of the station, causing the occupiers of it 
to make a wear (the largest I ever saw) to defend it from the water. 
How long it had been done so can never be known ; but the river, in an- 
other outbreak, has come round the north end of the wear, and sometime

or other broken into the north west comer of the station. I waa kindly 
favoured with the use of the Tithe Plan of the parish, from which I made 
such an extract as has enabled me to state the irruptions and changes of 
the river more clearly to the Society, On this plan I have marked with the 
letters B B, the supposed first course of the river, when the station was 
fiilly occupied by the Roman Lemons, and the bridge was standing. The 
site of the bridge is at A, where the foundations of it are still to be seen. 
The outbreak of the river, which threatened the destruction of the station, 
is shewn by the letters C C. The wear, extending almost 90 yards to the 
north of it, is shewn by the letter D : and, were it opened out, I have not 
the least doubt but it would be productive of vast quantities of stone ; and, 
more than likely, many inscriptions, as two of the monun^ntal stones sent 
by Mr. Shanks, in his second donation to the Society, were found near the 
south end of the wear, where they had been used as walling stones. The 
station has been excavated in its eastern and southern sides for the purpose, 
I believe, of covering the earth over the stones which compose the wear, — 
which excavation led Sir Walter Scott to term it " The Moated Mound of 

The letter E shows the second outbreak of the river, which must have 
run very deep under the north-west comer of the station ; near which it 
left a large and deep pool of water, now greatly filled up ; and most likely 
this second outbreak caused the disappearance of the bridge. The princi- 
pal entrance of the station has been on its westem side, between which and 
Watling Street, here raised on a considerable embankment constracted 
for a level access on to the bridge, there must have been another bridge 
crossing Chesterhope Bum, of which there is not the least vestige. The 
road from this entrance to Watling Street has been paved with large stones 
which are still to be seen amongst the grass ; and on the southem side of 
this road is the dunghill of the station, which I have no doubt would also 
be productive of numerous Roman remains. From the land being designed 
for a crop of hay next summer, we could not examine it fiirther. On the 
embanked part of Watling Street, near where the road to the station turns 
oS, are the grass-grown lines of a square building, most likely a guard 
house to protect the road. I employed three labourers to open out some 
of the numerous grasa-covered remains of buildings, the walls of which I

found standing very perfect to abont 8 feet in height. During these exca* 
vations there were many indications of burnt stone and fine earth, which 
had been burnt. There were two silver coins of Julia Domna, wife of 
Antoninus Pius, and four or five first brass Roman coins found, but the lat- 
ter were so much corroded as not to be made out. Many fragments of 
earthen ware were every where turned up, several of them appearing as if 
the vessels had been used on the fire for cooking ; and two different pieces 
had been oramed ; and, in the excavation made in the remains of a building 
in the centre of the station, a curious carved stone was discovered built 
into the wall. It is of the dimensions here shown.

The two side pieces of what appears like the middle of an hour glass are 
raised about half an inch above the top and bottom parts ; something like 
a step or raised part went round this stone. T made a correct survey of 
the station, shewing the most prominent of the grass-tufted indications of 
buildings, the site of the baths, and sudi parts of the outer wall as can be 
seen without excavation, and found the contents to be 4a. Ir. 20p. within, 
and including its outer wall (see plate). I understand that it has been the 
custom whenever stones were wanted for building or draining purposes, to 
set workmen on to tear out some of the standing walls until they got 
what was required ; but from the quantity of stone got by the workmen 
I employed in excavating the rooms, without meddling with the walls, 
I have every reason to believe that they will be suffered to stand on 
the eastern side in future.

eastern side.

Roman Station of Habiiancum* 159 

Letter from Mr. Richabd Shanks to Mr. John Bell. 

Risingliam, Jannarj 3, 1844 

As you desire an account of Bisingham, I shall, as for as I am able, fur^ 
nish what I know of it. Bisingham wals^ the property of Charles Fenwick^ 
Esq., of Woodbom Hill, near East Woodbnm, in Bedesdale, parish of 
Gorsengide^ and county of Northumberland ; and had been the property of 
his ancestors time out of mind. It was used (Bisingham) as a park by him 
for keeping entire horses in until it passed by sale from him to my father, 
Thomas Shanks, in July, 182% who now holds it as his property. It was 
when he bought it, in a very desolate states, being partly covered with brush- 
wood, and a renowned refuge for vermin, such as foulinarts, polecats, &c. 
These have, however, lost their place, as the brushwood is now all taken 
off. and remaining as you have seen it. 

On my going to Bisingham, which was on Mayday, 1889, there was lit- 
done in the way of discovery that year. In January, the beginning of the 
next year, from a sort of cement, which was in abundance on the south-' 
east side, and from its greater height than any other part of Kisingham, the 
thought struck me that this was the place to begin any labour in the way 
of discovery; and having stored myself with the Boman History and Anti- 
quities, I set to work on the north side of the aforesaid hillock. We had 
not gone for on with the work until we discovered a large drain about 18 
inches high and 1 foot in breadth. This we followed until we came to 
the altar FOBTVNAE SACBUM, from thence to the bath in which were 
found the coins and other curiosities. From thence we went on till we 
found the other Altars, which are in the collection of your Society of An- 
tiquaries. Going farther on, we discovered the large bath, which was 
cleaned out, and then gave over for that year, Ne^t year we began a lit- 
tle frirther eastward, on the other side of the wall, running in a straight 
direction southward to the bath (which wall was left standing from 
the year before) and there found two rooms, which had been heated 
by flues (as sweating rooms) underneath. This closed our labours for 
1841. Next year we discovered the other bath, with the place where the 

160 Notices respecting the Reman Station of HabUaneum. 

furnace had been for the water. We still went on in a direction south- 
ward, but not finding anything, this part is left unexplored. Little was 
now done until the spring of the next year, when we opened the place 
where the coals had been deposited for the use of the furnace, and in this 
place was found the Fibula. Since then little has been doing until you 
came. We have now resumed our labours in the southern entrance into 
the station and have discovered the position the walk have stood on each 
side of that entrance, together with a tower as usual. Some things have 
been found which will be forwarded soon to the Society. A plan of our 
place of working is sent this week to let you know how we are going on« 

I remain, 

Dear Sib, 
Yours, &c.,
