OF the three parts comprised in this concluding 
volume only one, and that the shortest, viz. Part X, 
is consecutive narrative, written in the personal style 
of those in vol. i. Taking up the tale in Oxfordshire it 
moves about Berkshire, Wilts, Somerset, and Glouces- 
tershire, ending abruptly near Shaftesbury in Dorset. 
Some of the places had been visited before, but this 
may have been a separate tour, as is indicated by the 
route in blue on Map II. The building of the bridge 
between Culham and Abingdon in 1457, noted by 
Leland, gave Hearne the occasion for an interesting 
addition from a local record detailing the manner of 
the whole work, worthy of attention from an economic 
point of view ; this will be found in the appendix to 
Part X. Part IX consists of many notes better classified 
than usual, chiefly in the more northern counties; 
while Part XI, 1 which we owe to Stow's copy, contains 
many miscellaneous matters, topographical, personal, 
and historical, some of which formed the foundation of 
narrative in parts of vols. i and ii. Leland's route to the 
northern counties and back, partly drawn from these 
notes, is shown in blue on Map III. The bishops and 
bishoprics of Lincoln, Durham, Hereford, Canterbury 

1 No omissions have been made ; it was found better to print 
the whole part. See vol. i, Introd., p. vi. 



and Worcester, are dealt with pretty fully how far 
the lists are accurate must be judged by special study. 
I have endeavoured to point out a few errors. An 
interesting series of notes from the lives of English 
saints is taken from John of Tynemouth's " Sancti- 
logium," and I am glad to have identified another set 
of lengthy extracts as taken from the " Mappa Mundi " 
by Gervase of Canterbury. These extracts give with 
varying fullness the lists of religious houses in Eng- 
land, and we may take it that Leland regarded them 
as still of some authority in his day. They might be 
compared with the long particulars of religious houses 
gathered together by Leland in the first MS. volume 
of his Collectanea (second edition by Hearne, 1774, 
vol> i, 25-123), and with other material at Cheltenham 
(see my vol. ii, p. 118 note\ all being of additional 
interest in view of Professor Savine's recent study of 
the " Valor Ecclesiasticus." 

Stow's copy of Part XI has itself lost eight leaves 
(see p. 136 note). While we are grateful for what he has 
preserved, it must be said that his careless Latin 
has given his editors much trouble. Frequent want 
of concord, and much mis-spelling, partly due, no 
doubt, to his not understanding contractions in the 
MS., partly to his very casual use of vowels, and 
occasionally to his following the mediaeval spelling, 
offended the modern scholar's sense, and Hearne took 
immense pains to remedy this by means of numerous 
little foot-notes; but even his meticulous eye grew 
tired and towards the end he dropped his correcting 
pen, or occasionally made alterations in the text with- 
out indicating them. This treatment seemed unneces- 
sarily tedious; I have therefore embodied most of 


Hearne's corrections in the text without foot reference, 
placing a selection only of the MS. readings at the 
foot of the page, which serve as specimens of Stow ; 
and giving all cases where there is any question of 
meaning or identification. Comparison with the ori- 
ginal works quoted by Leland, where identified, has 
been also of much assistance. Though a few errors 
may occur, it is hoped that all requirements are thus 
fairly satisfied. 

A final appendix of Welsh matter (Glamorganshire) 
from the manuscript of Collectanea, vol. iii, closes the 
volume. It should be noted that all the extracts from 
Collectanea which belong to the Itinerary and are 
printed in this edition except that found in the 
Cheltenham MS. are taken from the MS. vol. iii; the 
most important are the " New Year's Gift," the notes 
and map of the Channel Islands, a large portion on 
Kent (vol. iv, pp. 47-70), the curious description of 
Anglesea, and further notes on Wales, the last of 
which I regret are not all gathered together in the 
volume on Wales owing to my imperfect knowledge 
of the Collectanea at the beginning of this undertak- 
ing. Reference to the General Index, which has been 
prepared with care and revision, and to the tables of 
counties, will, it is hoped, supply the needed links. 

For the third edition of Hearne's print of the Itiner- 
ary, 1768, Dr. Charles Lyttleton, bishop of Carlisle, 
sent a few emendations which were inserted by Mr. 
Pote the publisher ; three of these referring to names 
of places I add to the list of errata in the present 
volume ; others had been already made in the course 
of my collation. 

Leland is a valuable writer for the English philo- 


legist, quotations from his expressive Tudor language 
are scattered up and down the pages of the New 
Oxford Dictionary. A short glossary of disused or 
difficult words and senses is here appended to be near 
at hand for the reader. 

Regarding Leland himself two additions since my 
Introduction to vol. i have arisen. Thinking that the 
" commission " given him by King Henry VIII, under 
power of which he made his researches and journeys, 
might be now attainable, I have had a thorough 
search made once more among all the likely sources 
in the Public Record Office, but still without result. 
It does not appear on the Patent or the Close Rolls 
from 1533-1543, and Anthony Wood was perhaps mis- 
taken in affirming that it was under the " broad seal " 
(Introd., p. ix). The interesting fact has been shown 
me by Dr. James Gairdner that John Leland in 1546 
was holding from the Court of Augmentations a tene- 
ment in the parish of St. Botolph without Aldersgate, 
London, within the site of the late Charterhouse 
(Letters and Papers, Henry VIII, vol. xxi, Part i, 
p. 767). We may conjecture, therefore, that he set- 
tled in this house, and not in St. Michael's parish, at 
the end of his travels to write his works, and may 
have sent his " New Year's Gift " of 1 546 thence to 
the King ; further, that it may have been his brother 
John, who took charge of him during his insanity 
until he died, who actually lived in the parish of 
St. Michael le Querne, a supposition to which colour 
is lent by the fact that our John, the younger brother, 
was buried in the church of that parish. These con- 
jectures seem probable, but there being the two Johns 
we cannot tell with certainty (see Introd., pp. xiv, xv). 


In conclusion it may be useful to give a note of the 
Leland manuscripts, or parts of manuscripts, in the 
British Museum l beyond those mentioned in vol. i, 
Introd., pp. xxviii-xxx, and in my Comparative Table 
in the same volume (p. xxxvi; see also vol. ii, p. 117). 
Some of these now indicated contain various extracts 
from the Itinerary ; the first two are notable on account 
of the eminent antiquaries William Camden and 
Francis Thynne, who made the respective collections. 
The third is a large folio, chiefly valuable because the 
first ninety leaves are in Leland's autograph hand; 
judging by size, shape, and contents they must prob- 
ably have once formed part of his Collectanea; the 
rest of the volume contains copies from various de- 
tached portions of the Itinerary (printed in our vols. 
iii, iv, v), including some of those culled from the third 
volume of Collectanea, and a copy of the whole of 
Part I; ending with ten leaves copied by William 
Burton from Collectanea and a letter. Perhaps the 
most interesting manuscript as regards the Itinerary 
is the Harl. 842, a small paper folio containing a 
number of selected extracts relating to thirty-five 
counties, also including the Itinerary passages from 
the third volume of Collectanea. The Leland portion 
of No. 5, one of the latest in date, is entirely devoted 
to extracts from the Itinerary, copied by several hands. 

I add references to the manuscripts containing 
similar extracts from Leland's general Collectanea, 
apart from the Itinerary. One of these also contains 
a small portion in autograph (No. io). 2 

1 Up till April, 1909 ; I do not know of any later acquisitions. 

2 Except for No. 5, in referring to the folios of manuscripts 
the old numeration is used. 


1. Lansdowne 229; " W. Camden Miscellanea," 
dated 1573. Fos. 83-87^, notes from Parts IV, VI, 
and others of the Itinerary; fos. 88-98, or perhaps 99, 
" ex aliis diversis Collectaneis Johanni Leilandi." 

2. Cotton MSS., Cleopatra C. iii ; catalogued, " Col- 
lections of Mr. Fras. Thynne." Fos. 67^-87^, ex- 
tracts from Part II of the Itinerary, copied 17 Dec., 
1589, and signed F. Thynne. Fos. 179^, 199^-201, 
a few miscellaneous notes from Itinerary ; fos. 301-3 19^, 
extracts copied apparently by John Stow (judging 
by the hand and ink) from parts of Collectanea. 

3. Cotton, Julius C. vi. Folio. Nearly the whole is 
occupied by Leland. Fos. 1-90, truly described by a 
later hand, " Johannis Lelandi collectiones ex anti- 
quissimi authoribus desumptse quae ad Britanniam 
spectant manu ejusdem Lelandi scriptae." Among 
the writers quoted are Priscian, Polybius, Tacitus, 
Politian, Paulus Diaconus, Diodorus Siculus, Antonini 
Itinerarium, and John Boscatius De stagnis et paludi- 
bus: these leaves, like those in the Phillipps MS. 12111 
at Cheltenham, have been at some time separated from 
Leland's Collectanea : so far, I do not find them printed 
by Hearne, but this would require more investigation. 
After fo. 90 follow many extracts from the third 
volume of Collectanea, as well as some from the 
Itinerary, in a late sixteenth-century hand. Fos. 192- 
232 contain the whole of Part I copied by another 
(?) seventeenth-century hand. Fos. 233-243 are copies 
" Ex Collectaneis," and a letter to Selden, all in the 
hand of William Burton. 

4. Harleian 842, a small folio, of 93 leaves, paper 
Written by a hand of the late sixteenth or early seven- 
teenth century. Consists of extracts from the Itinerary, 



orderly arranged according to the counties of England 
and Wales. 

5. Lansdowne 940, 4to, of 190 leaves. Fos. 122-154 
(pencil numbering); a collection of extracts from 
various parts of the Itinerary, written by various hands 
of seventeenth century. 

6. Lansdowne 825, fos. 19-21. Two leaves contain 
a partial list of names of counties and the towns along 
Leland's routes, taken from the parts of the Itinerary, 
in a large loose hand; they are endorsed on an out- 
side sheet, " An account of Leland's Itinerary." (Of 
no special value.) 

7. Harleian 6193, a square folio of 290 pages, 
written in a fine bold hand, titles rubricated ; title on 
p. i, "John Leland's Commentarys of England," that 
on the fly-leaf, " Johannis Lelandi Collectanea," ex- 
presses the contents of the volume, which is filled 
with copies entirely, I believe, from the Collectanea. 1 

8. Lansdowne 963 (from Bishop Kennett's col- 
lection). A small 8vo. MS. of 139 leaves, written in 
small hand of seventeenth century; fos. \$b-i6b have 
a few extracts "ex Collectaneis Johannis Lelandi, 
MS., 4to, vol. 2," a reference which appears to point 
to a lost volume of Leland's notes (the known MSS. of 
his Collectanea being all in folio), or it may be in- 
tended for Part II of the Itinerary, in which, as well 
as in Part III, one or two of the items occur (vol. i, 

1 Hearne wished to borrow all the " pieces of Leland " from 
Lord Harley's library, among which he notes some "originals" 
in Leland's hand. See Hearne to Humphrey Wanley, 23 Oct., 
1714, in Ellis's ''Letters of Eminent Literary Men," Camden Soc., 
1843, p. 355. I have not found any originals of the Itinerary in 
the Harleian collection. 


pp. 129, 265). Further extracts from the folio Col- 
lectanea, vol. i, occur on fos. 177 to about 186. 

9. Cotton, Vespasian B. xv, fo. 40. A page contain- 
ing lists of witnesses from eight or nine old charters, 
copied " ex Lelando," probably from Collectanea. 

10. Cotton, Vitellius C. ix. Fos. 234-239^ contain 
a copy from Leland's extracts from several old writers 
and his notes thereon, including the Sibilline verses 
on the Day of Judgment. Fos. 240-245 are in Leland's 
own hand, consisting of extracts from several Latin 
poets. It seems possible that these leaves, like others, 
may have dropped out of some quire of Leland's great 

11. Stowe 305, fo. 296. Contains an extract from 
Collectanea, vol. i. 

12. Stowe 1048, eighteenth century. Fo. 12^, a 
page containing small notes from Collectanea, vol. iii. 

In drawing to a close a work full of details which 
has occupied the spare time of many years, while I 
am conscious of some errors or mistakes, I can truly 
say I have done my best to avoid them ; the further 
knowledge gained in the course of editing might have 
improved the earlier volumes had it been possible. 
I hope, too, that I have omitted little of importance. 
It is a pleasure to acknowledge my obligations and 
thanks for kind help to Messrs. F. Madan of the 
Bodleian Library, C. E. Doble, Professors Adam 
Kirkaldy and A. J. Herbertson, for the long loan of 
working books and maps; to the Rev. Travers 
Herford, Mr. A. S. Buxton of Mansfield, Mr. Francis 
Harrison of Bath, C. L. Kingsford, Esq., Mr. R. Blair 
of South Shields, Mr. W. H. Stevenson, the Hon. Miss 



Bruce, Miss Fell Smith, for suggestions and assist- 
ance in some identifications of places; to Sir Edw. 
Maunde Thompson, Sir John Rhys, Dr. Craigie, and 
especially my old friend Sir James Murray, for valued 
help in explanation of certain words. Other acknow- 
ledgements have been made in the sections on Wales 
and the Channel Islands. Nor must I forget to own 
my gratitude to the patience and considerate friendli- 
ness of my kind publisher, Mr. Edward Bell, without 
whose encouragement I could not have carried through 
the work.

T OHN of Seint Helen's, so cawlyd becawse he dwelte in Stow, v, 
J S. Helyn's paroche in Abyndon, was the firste beginner fo. 107. 
and makar of the great bridge of stone over Isis at Abbindon. Abbyngton. 
Afore his tyme it was a fery.

[* Leland's MS., vol. vii. This volume as we now have it is evi- 
dently not in its original state, leaves 7 to 31 inclusive are wanting; it 
seems to have consisted of quires and loose leaves, which were prob- 
ably bound together by Burton. Some of these loose leaves were gone 
before he had the papers, as we may judge by what he copied in 1641 
(Burton (a), Gough, gen. top. 2, fos. 224-232) compared with Stow's 
copy of 1576 (Tanner, 464, vol. v, 107-148); and by the same standard 
we see that he mixed up the early leaves, which contain miscellaneous 
notes and are not in the original order followed by Stow. Burton bound 
some of the leaves (fos. 22-31) into vol. v of Leland's MS., apparently 
because they treat of some Welsh counties (see "Leland in Wales, ' 
p. 57) ; others of the lost leaves also contained notes on Wales, and are 
only known in Stow's copy ; both these groups were copied consecu- 
tively by Stow, but one was printed by Hearne in his vol. v, the other 
left in his vol. vii. In the present edition all the Welsh notes are trans- 
ferred to our Part VI, pp. 53-66. The first pages of miscellaneous notes 
above are restored to the order followed by Stow, as that most probably 
right. The Table on the opposite page shows the relative positions of 
these passages. 

(In his vol. vii, pp. 7-14, for part of these passages Hearne gives 
side references to fos. 14-27, as though he were printing from Leland's 
original ; but I cannot find that these leaves exist, and therefore give 
Stow's folios only. In my vol. i, pp. 121, 122, notes, fo. 14 is thus an

[* This curious expression, twice over, may be the shortened use of 
a Latin legal phrase like de comitatu, perhaps currently applied at the time 
and locally in the Marches of Wales to certain lordships, which, though 
really situated in a named county and therefore presumably owing suit 
to the shire town, were privileged to use their own laws and courts. 
The places were in the shire but not of it for purposes of public justice, 
until the Act of Union (27 Hen. VIII, cap. 26, 1535-36) annexed them 
to definite counties under the laws of England and declared their shire 
towns, adding that they " shall be in nowise otherwise privileged but as 
hundreds, lordships, towns, etc., united annexed and knytte " to the 
county of Salop, or otherwise. It was thus that " the last statute let [or 
hindered] them," this being the Act referred to by Leland. Montgomery,

In the forest of Ynglewood a vi. myles fro Cairluel appere 
ruines of a castel cawled Castel Luen. 

Leland v, These thinges folowing I lernid of the Vicar or person 
fo. loi.J of Corbridge at Newcastel. 

Northum- Corbridg about a xi. miles from Newcastelle: But to go 
berland. to j t t h e next wa y f rom Duresme it is not past a 16. or 18. 

Corbridge is on the same ripe of Tine that New Cas- 
telle is. 

The chirch of Corbridge is dedicate onto S. Andre. 

The personage was ons impropriate to the Priory of Tin- 
mouth, sins by exchaunge to Cairluel. 

The toune at this tyme is ful meanely buildid. 

The names of diverse stretes that hath beene there yet 
hath names, as old people there testifie, and great tokens

of old foundations be yet founde there, and also Numis- Northum- 
mata Ro. berland. 

The stone bridge that now is at Corbridge over Tine is 
larg, but it is set sumwhat lower apon Tine then the olde 
bridg was. 

Ther be evident tokens yet seene where the olde bridg 
was, and theraboute cummith downe a praty broke on the 
same side that that the toun is on, and hard by it, and goit 
into Tine. I thing verely that this broke is caullid Corve, 
though the name be not welle knowen there, and that the 
toune berith the name of it (Colus flu.).* 

By this broke as emong the ruines of the olde town is a 
place caullid Colecester, wher hath beene a forteres or 
castelle. The peple there say that ther dwellid yn it one 
Yoton, whom they fable to have beene a gygant. 

There is no bridge on Tyne, as I remembre, bytwixt 
Newcastelle and Corbridge. 

As far as I can perceyve by the boke of the life of S. Oswin 
the martyr, Colebrige is alway put ther for Corbridge. Colebridge. 

There appere ruines of arches of a stone bridge over Tyne fo. 102.

Mounbowcher was a man of fair landes in Northumbre- 
lande : and Doctor Davelle f told me that the hospitale yn 
Newcastel hath yet landes of his gifte. 

The Rudhams were men of fair landes in Northumbre- 
lande about Tille ryver, ontyl one of them having to wife 
one of the Humframville doughters killid a man of name, 
and thereby lost the principale of 600. marke landes by yere. 
So that at this tyme Rudham of Northumbreland is but a 
man of mene landes.

There was one of the Grays of Northumbrelande a man 
of greate brute in the tyme of Edwarde the 4., that was sus-

beying accusid of a gentilman of Scotteland cam with a 
band, as it is saide, of a 1000. men to Edingborow, and 
there caste down his glove to fight in the listes with his

supposid, that Gray was not accusid therof withoute a 

The Herbotelles landes in Northumbreland, that was a 
300. markes by the yere, cam of late dayes to 2. doughters, 
wherof the one was maried to Syr Thomas Percy, that was 
for treason hangid at Tiburne. The other was maried to 
Fitton of Chestershir. Mr. Doctor Davel told me that the 
limes of the Bisshoprike of Duresmegoith beyond the mouth 
on Darwent up apon Trente even to the paroch of Rytoun.

Roger Thorton* the great riche marchaunte of New- 
castelle in Edwarde the 4. dayes, by whom the Lomeleys 
landes were greatly augmentid, as by mariage of his dough-

haulle, and a place for pore almose menne by Sand Hille 
gate a litle lower then Newcastelle bridge on the very ripe 
of Tyne within the toun of Newcastelle. The isle, and 
almost al the landes that the Lorde Lomeley hath in York-

Murdach was a bysshope, and in comprobation of it there 
be dyverse myters sene in the haule in Rotherfeld. 

There appere enteringe into the maner place on the righte

that it was sume tyme a castle. Ther is a very large courte 
buildyd about with tymbar and spacyd withe brike ; but this 
is of a latter worke. Men of Henley may yet remembar that 
it was the Lord Level's pocession. Sens by attainture it 
cam by gifte to Knolls.

parke, and a waren of connes, and fayre woods. The 
mansion place standithe clyminge on an hille, and hathe 2.

Syns one Fortescue invadyd it by mariage of an heire generall 
of the Stoners, but aftar dispocessyd. 

From Oxford to Hinkesey fery a quartar of a myle or 
more. Ther is a cawsey of stone fro Oseney to the ferie, 
and in this cawsey be dyvers bridges of plankes. For there 
the streme of Isis breketh into many armelets. The fery 
selfe is over the principale arme or streame of Isis.

pocessyons of 400. marks by the yere. The last heire male 
of them was a-lyve in hominum memoria. Legh and Rodecote 
cam by mariage of an heire generall of the Blesells onto 

From Legh I rode halfe a myle and cam to Towkey, a

remayneth, and ther by in a wood was a manor place now 
clene downe. It longethe now as a ferme to Magdalen Col-

and seynge the howse not sufficiently served withe water,

it on to the very abbay syde, and partely thrwghe it. The 
chefe streme of Isis rane afore betwixt Andersey Isle

Of auncient tyme there was no bridge to passe over

(Note by Thomas Hearne. See page 77.) 

THO' King Henry the V th . is here said to be the founder 
not only of Burford, but of Culham, Bridge, yet this is [Burfbrd, 
to be understood only by way of complement, and 'tis Berks.] 
grounded only upon the liberty given by him for building 
the bridges, and upon some other small privileges that he 
allow'd at this time. For 'tis certain that John of St. Helen's 
was the first beginner of Burford Bridge, to the maintenance 
of which and of the hospital of St. Helen's that he had 
founded, he left an estate in land of 50. pounds a year, 
which estate (I suppose) now belongs (at least it ought to 
belong) to the present hospital, call'd Christ's Hospital, that 
was built by K. Edward the Sixth and Sir John Mason. 
And 'tis withal as certain that Geffry Barbour was the prin- 
cipal founder of Culham * Bridge, towards which, and to the 
finishing of Burford Bridge, and to the making of the fine 
causey between both bridges he gave a 1000. marks, which 
was punctually laid out upon this work. The best artists 
that could be found were imploy'd, and every man had a 
penny a day, which was the best wages, and an extraordinary 
price in those times, when the best wheat was now and 
thenf sold for twelve pence a quarter. Twas likewise in 

t* In Oxfordshire, near Abingdon, which is in Berks. L. T. S.] 
t See pag. 22. of a certain Leiger Book, now lying in the hall of 
Christ's Hospital at Abbington, mtitled A Monument of Christian 
Munificence, written in the year 1627. by Francis Little, sometime 
Mayor of Abbington, and one of the Governours of this Hospital. In 
which book (written with no great judgment) is a short account of the 
Monastery of Abbington, of the Hospital of the fraternity of the Holy- 
Cross, and of divers other things relating to this place. 
V. I 


those times that in the feasts of the fraternity of the Holy- 
Cross in Abbington they spent yearly six calfs, which cost 
two shillings and two pence a piece, sixteen lambs at twelve 
pence a piece, above four score capons at three pence a 
piece, above four score geese at two pence half penny a 
piece, eight hundred eggs at five pence a hundred; besides 
many marrow bones, much fruit and spice, and a great quan- 
tity of milk, cream and flour, all in proportion too to the 
prices that I have specify'd: and upon these days of rejoyc- 
ing withal they us'd to have twelve minstrels, viz. six from 
Coventry and six from Maidenhead, for which and for other 
uses of the fraternity William Dyar, Vicar of Bray in Berks, 
gave them five tenements in East St. Helen's Street, three 
tenements in West St. Helen's Street, and other lands in 
Abbington. So that considering the cheapness of things in 
those times, Geffry Barbour's contribution was very great 
and extraordinary, and 'tis nothing but justice to style him 
the founder of the bridge, the stones whereof, as well as 
those of Burford Bridge, were taken out of the quarries of 
Bessilsleigh and Stanford, and were given them by Sir 
Peter Bessils, who moreover, besides the money he gave for 
carrying on the building of the bridges, by his last will and 
testament, dated Octob. 23. 1424. gave all his lands, tene- 
ments and reversions in Abbington towards the perpetual 
maintenance and repair of them. Besides Geffry Barbour's 
benefaction to this work, he was likewise so great a bene- 
factor to the hospital of St. Helen, that some look upon 
him now, as they did even in Mr. Leland's time, to have 
been the chief founder of it. He was also in other respects 
a very great friend to this town, and did so much good in 
the place, that he is always mention'd by the inhabitants 
with the most profound respect. He was first of all buried 
in the Abbey Church; but upon the dissolution he was 
translated from thence in the most solemn manner to St. 
Helen's Church, where I have seen his grave-stone, and find 
the following inscription upon it : Hie jacet Galfridus Bar- 
hour^ Mercator de Abendon, quondam Balivus Bristoliae, qui 
obiit vicesimo primo die Aprili^ anno Domini 1417. Cujus 
animae propitietur Deus. Tis this great respect which the 
inhabitants of the town have for him that hath prevented 
the destruction of the brass-plate upon which the inscription 


.s ingrav'd. Other old monuments have been defac'd and 
utterly destroy'd by Puritans, Presbyterians, and the rest of 
the whining crew, purely out of a vain, idle conceit, that the 
memory of no Roman Catholicks ought to be preserv'd. 
This town hath been famous for fanaticks, and 'tis no won- 
der that there is so little of such kind of antiquities remain- 
ing amongst them; and yet these principles have not 
prevail'd so far upon them as to erase out of their minds the 
honour that is due to Geffry Barbour; which, perhaps, may 
be owing, in some measure, to this, that they do not believe 
him to have been a rigorous Roman Catholick, but rather an 
enemy to the Pope. We cannot conceive what rejoycing 
there was upon the finishing of Culham Bridge, not only 
because a stop was put by this means to the mischiefs which 
us'd to happen in ferrying over the water, but also because 
it conduc'd very much to the inriching of the town by in- 
fluencing travellers in their way from Gloucester to London 
to pass through it, and not through Walingford as they had 
been accustom'd to do. And 'tis to be noted that 'twas 
nothing else but a sense of the many benefits that accru'd 
from hence to this place that occasion'd Mr. Richard Fan- 
nand, iron-monger, in the year 1457 (being the 36. year of 
the reign of K. Hen. VI.) to put up a table in the hall of 
St. Helen's Hospital in memory of Geffry Barbour, etc. in 
which we have an exact, tho' rude and barbarous, descrip- 
tion of the proceedings in building of Culham Bridge, 
together with some Latin verses at the beginning (in which 
K. Henry the V. is mention'd as the founder of both 
bridges) and the rebus of Abbington at the end, (which 
differs somewhat from that in Dr. Plot's letter.)* 'Tis this 
table that is here cited by Mr. Leland, and 'tis now hanging 
in the hall of the present hospital, but being like to come to 
decay in some time, I shall here beg leave to transcribe and 
publish it, that posterity may know to whom it is that they

[t These epigrams refer to William Longchamp (not Beauchamp) 
Bishop of Ely, 1189; they occur in Girald's "Vita Galfridi archiep. 
Ebor.," which is printed in Opera Giraldi Cambrensis, vol. iv, p. 427 
(Rolls Ser.). They are there linked by short remarks, which may have 
led Leland to separate them by his extraneous notes, as copied by 
Stow and printed by Hearne, vol. viii, p. 47, but I incline to think 
that he copied them on the margin of his notes about Dour. Leland 
may have found Girald's work in Dour Abbey.

[* From Leland's MS. of "Collectanea," vol. iii, pp. 101-106 (Gough, 
" Top. Gen.," c. 3), printed in Hearne's " Collectanea," second edition, 
1774, vol. iv, pp. 90-94. These pages of notes, chiefly on Glamorgan- 
shire, should have been placed at the end of Appendix B to the vol. iii 
of this edition, "Leland in Wales"; I did not then recognize that the 
notes relate to places in Glamorganshire, and must have been used by 
Leland in his narrative. See vol. iii, pp. 17-36. 

These detached pages were not written by Leland, but by a very 
different hand ; perhaps some Welsh friend may have sent him the in- 
formation. Pages 96-98 in the MS. which precede them describe Angle- 
sey (see before, vol. iii, Appendix B; pp. 99, loo are blank); p. 107 
relates to Gower land, and is in Leland's hand (vol. iii, Appendix A). 
There seems to be nothing else in this hand in the three volumes of 
Leland's MS. Collectanea. Burton appears to have placed the leaves 
in by the wrong edges, and to have numbered the pages before finding 
out his mistake ; he thereupon added letters indicating the right order, 
which accordingly was followed by Hearne, and is continued here. They 
stand pp. 101, 102, 103^, 104(7, io$c, io6, and I so print the figures 
for reference.]
