THE PREFACE. 



PART I. 

,RE Tre proceed to the documents in 
this volume, aonie prcfatorial re- 
marka upou them may be of use 
aiid interest. The Lihei" Niger, or, 
as it is commonly called, the Black 
Book of Hexham, derives its name 
merely from the colour of the covtr 
which it wears, like the Blue Books 
of the present day which are familiar 
to every one. Similar appellations 
were common enough in old times. 
We have the Black and Red Books 
of the English Exchequer, the White 
Register of York, the Red Book of 
Durham, and the Black and Red Books of Hexham. The 
Black Book of Ilexham is a carefully drawn up rental of the 
possessions of the Priory. The Red Book is mentioned iu the 
twelfth centuryj -when wc hear of some jurors taking an oath 
Upon it." It acems to have becQ a copy of the Gospela, a relic, 
perhaps, of some of the early prelates of the place ; aud it 
probably perished during some inroad of the Scots in the thir- 
tee]ith century, as it is never spoken of afterwards.* The Red 
Book of Durham, whieh the student in history longs so ardently 
to diseover, contained the aiiuala of the see in SaxOn timea."

THE PREFACE. FAHT I. 



It is probable enougb that some similar cliroiiide was incor- 
poi'atecl iu the Lilier Ruber of Heshani. 

The Black Book of Hexljam is a rental of all the Ifuida and 
posseaaions of tlie Prior and Convent of that place, wherever 
they might be. According to the titlcj it dates from the feast 
of Pentecost, ll/g^ but from internal evidence Lt is plain that 
tbe materials for the survey were being gathered together at an 
earlier period. Iu two places it is stated that a certain rent 
would become due for the first time at Pentecoat, 1477,'' so that 
tins portion of the document ia at all events prior to that year. 
The canons of He.'cham had landa in places very widely apart, 
and some time would elapse before all the portions of tbe rent- 
roll could be prepared on anytliing like a regular and sys- 
tematic plan. The work, probably, was going on for several 
ycsars, and was not completed until 1479. The document itsell' 
ia not by any means one of an unusual character, as every 
religious house had a similar rental. The Black Book merely 
took the place of an earlier document. We find in it a mention 
of the Old Holl." 

These eurveys were usually compiled from the rolla of the 
bailiffs of each, particular manor or estate, who were probably 
desired to be more than ordinarily csact and minute in a stated 
year ; the rolls would be examined as they were sent in, and 
the information they contained would be arranged by the ter- 
rarer. It will lie observed that there axe now and then in the 
duciiment inequalities of description. Of some places there ia 
a fuller account than of others. This ia easily explained by my 
Bupposition that tbe survey is merely a codification of the 
various baUiils' rolls, which were drawn up with more or less 
care, The terrarer made the best he conld of them. 

The estates of the Priory of Hexham may be divided into 
two parts; the lands attached to tbe prebend of Saltou, and 
those bestowed upon the cauons in other places, and by various 
benefactors,

Vll 



The preliend of Salton in tLe catTiedral churcli of York was 
annexed to i'he Priorate of Heshom Tjy archbishop Thurstan in 
tliG twelfth centurVj and it was not ojily thp most honourable 
posaeasion of the Priory, but it was also one of the moat lucra- 
tive of the estatea belonging to it. The Prior of Hexham could 
generally rely upon the regular payment of his YorltshiTe rents, 
as there were no Scots or thieves in that connty to make his 
lands unprotitable. The corpus of the prebend consisted of the 
manor of Salton, and of property in Edston, Great and Little 
Barugh in the pariah of Kirkby-Misperton, Flaston in the 
parish of Boaaallj Millington, and, perhaps, at Giveiidale, All 
these places, eave the two last mentioued, are in the North 
Riding of Yorkahire. 

Salton lieg among the hillg, ahont five miles from Kirkby 
Moorside, and almost midway bctweeu Ilelmsley and Malton. 
The Prior of Hexham had two residences there, one in the 
village, and another at the north end of the manor where there 
was a. gaest-haJl with a camera, and divers other buildings 
attached to it. In the village itself there was a hall, with three 
chambers and a chapel, of which many remnants are in ex- 
istence. We have some intereBting materials for the history of 
the place. The hall seems to have been reserved for the uae of 
the Prior and his officers, but the guest-hall was let in 1479, 
with the exception of a portion of the great bam, which was 
needed for the tithes belonging to the Prior, The Prior selected 
a steward or bailiff for the manor, who sent in an annual ac- 
count roll,/ and he choac bcaidca alc-gricves, water-gricvca, four 
jnTors, and a stock-keeper. The tenants, in addition to their 
rents, were to contribute towards the purchase of a palfrey for 
every new Prior, to give to aids, to caj'ry victuals for their lord 
and his anite when travelling in Yorkshire, to supply beds for 
his guests at Salton, to attend to the mill, and to carry stone, 
flint, and all kinds of timber for the repaira of the manor-

hoTiae.^ The otlier constituent parta of the prchcnd were to 
make themselves similarly useful according to the extent of 
theii' laud. Aa prebendary of Salton tlie Prior of Hexbam Lad 
u Jiouse in York appropriated to hie stall. Tliia was let in 
1457 to the parsons of the Minster; and the college of St. 
WiQiam, I believe, occupies its site/ The Prior would he veiy 
rarely in the archiepiscopal city, and would gladly be free from 
the incumbfance of an official residence, which he was bound to 
Iceep in repair, although he could not use it. I must leave the 
history of Salton to the Yorkshire topographer, and turn north- 
wards. 

Before I enter apon the general question of the estates of 
the Priory of Hexham, it will be well to clear the way a little 
by enumerating what may be called its eccleaiastical property, 
and to state the number of linngs that it possessed. There 
are many documents relating to these livings in this volume, 
and the following list wiU he of some service to the reader. I 
have gpoken elsewhere of the wretehed system that prevailed of 
malting no formal endowments for viearagea, which was esceed- 
ii^ly short -eigli ted and reprehensible. 

Hexham. The Priory itself was the church of the parish, 
and a portion of it would be specially devoted to the use of the 
iuhabitanta. Every monastery^ I believe, was in itself a parish. 
Subordinated to the parisli church of Hexham were the chapels 
of SS, Mary and Peter in the town," and those of St. John Lee, 
St. Oswald's, Eingficld, and Alwcnton. In 1286 archbishop 
Romanus ordered the parishioucrs of Hexham to keep the 
chapels in repair, save the chancels, which the Prior and eanons 
were to attend to. They were also to tod a missal and a chalice 
lor each,-' In 129 J; the same prelate cited the Prior and Con- 
vent that they might shew cause why vicars were not properly 
instituted at Hexham and Alwenton.* In the heguming of the

duty of creating them.'

the close of his reign." In 1335 they begged Edward III. for 
leave to have the revenues of the hving appropriated to them." 
This did not take place until ISrS^ when it was done by Thomaa 
Hathcld, bishop of uDurliam, A proper endowment of the 
vicarage was not made until the year 1420.-P 

Wakden. This chnrch belonged to the Priory by the gift 
of Adam de Tindale.' A pension of twenty marks, per annum 
out of it was reserved to the bishops of Durham, and this was 
granted by King John in the sixteenth year of hia TGigu to 
Robert Morell.' In lji43 there was a re-ordination of the 
ricarage, and the stipend of the vicar was fixed at thirty-six 
marks per annum/ As Warden was so near to Hexham, it was 
fpcuuently held by a canon. According to the Augustinian 
rule, no canon could live out of hia Tnonastery, unless he bad a 
brother with hira. In 1337 this rule was disregarded, and its 
observance was ordered by archbishop Melton.' Dependent on 
the church of Warden in 1297 were the chapels of Staueroft, 
Haydcn, and Langley."

lepers. Tbe founder was one of the early ai'c'hbistopa of York, 
probatly Thomas II. or Tliurstan. There is a deed preserved, 
by wliiflhj on Yeh. 16th, 1200-lj King John allowed the lepers to 
be exemp-t in all that they buy or sell from the payment of the 
tolls of pontage and jmssage on the royal lauds in Yorkshire 
and Northumljerland.'' In 1320 an enquiry waa made into the 
condition of the hospital, which tells us much about its history. 
The name of its founder was lost, for the muniments of the 
plate had been Carricti away by a brother, who fled from the 
Scots. They caught and tilled him, and his freight perished. 
The eatatea of the hospital were literally nothing. All its 
arable land could easily be cultivated by a single plough. An 
annual rent-cliarge of lis. 2d. on property in Hexham, Fallow- 
field, and Portgate produced nothing, as the placea were waste. 
Before the war the brethren received daily from the Priory four 
loaves of black bread and four lagente of secondary beer or ale, 
aud a layena when any oiil' brewed on the Prior's land in 
Hcsham : now, they got notliing save six black loaves and two 
lagen/e of secondary beer a week. We leam^ also, that the 
hospital was founded for pooi' sick husbandmen, bom within the 
libctty, who were lepers. Etu^h. archbishop and each prior could 
appoint two of hia own tensuts, aud no more. Thus there 
could not be more than four brethren of their nomination in 
the hospital at one time, but :i,ny one might be admitted by the 
leave of the master on paying a sufficient sum for his main- 
tenance. In 1330 the property of the hospital was barely suffi- 
cient for three brothers, and, to live in it, they were obliged to 
work bard. Formerly there were seven or eight inmates ; now, 
in their present poverty, none could be admitted without paying. 
They have but four affri and four oxen for their plough, two of 
each being lentj and their cam is scarcely aufficieiit for the 
jeai-'e sowing,'

We now come to the landed estates of the Prior and Convent 
of Hexham, which were situated in four of the Northern coun- 
tica, Yorkshire, Durham, Northumberland, and Cumberland. 
With regard to three of these counties it will be unnecessary to 
say much, Paaaing hy the manor of Salton and its appendages, 
the Yorkahire property of the Priory of Hexham was only in 
four places, Great and Little Brougliton, the extinct parish of 
Kirkby in Cleveland and Ingloby, This, which was of no great 
annual value, was given to the canons by various persons in the 
twelfth and thirteenth centuries. They had at one time a house 
in Goodramgate in York of the gift of Suunulphus the priest ;' 
unless we are to suppose, perhaps, that this was the official resi- 
dence of the prchendary of Salton. In the cotiiity of Durham 
tliere was propei'ty belonging to Hexham at GrecD Heley neat 
Mugglcswick, Fenhall and Maidenetanhall in the parish of 
Lancte&ter, Kimblesworth near Durham, Stainton le Street,

herring- fishery somewhere on the coast of AUerdale, which can- 
not be traced. In Cai'Iiale they had one or two plots of grouud 
with a house or two upon them of the gift of David king of 
Scotland and Henry his son/ 

But it was in Northumberland that the Priory of Hexham 
had the bulk of its property, and it was very large indeed. It 
was chiefly in Tindale ward, and it is not too much to say that 
iVom the borders of Ciimherland to Newcaetlc-on-Tyne there 
was no psirish in which the Prior and canons had not a large 
interest. They could not have had less tlian twenty thousand 
acres of land in Northumberland. To know how all these came 
to the Priory we must look at the great Inspeximus of 1297, hi 
which, immediately after a. Scottish iuvasioa in which the mu^ii- 
ments of the canons had been consumed, their posaeesiona were 
formaUy settled and assured to them by the yerdiet of a jury. 
We thus have not only a list of their Northumbrian estates, but 
the names of the persons who gave them. The greater part of 
these benefactions seems to have been made in tbe twelfth cen- 
tury or soon after it. Passing by the archbishops of York and 
their numerous gifts, we find among tlie donora many of the 
great potentates and barons of Northumberland. First and 
foremost is David king of Scotland, with his son and grandson 
prince Henry and William the Lion. Superior to his royal 
masters in mmiificerice was Adam dc Tindale, who bestowed 
upon the Prior and canons the manor and church of Warden 
with its numerous ehapelriea, and his lands at Byres. The illus- 
trious family of Umfreville had many claims upon the gratitude 
of the house of Hexham, and the canons at Ovingham, when 
they prayed for the soul of Gilbert UmfreviUe, the last earl of 
Angus of that line, would call to mind a noble ancestor of their 
benefactor who bore both his names, together with Odonel and

ment of exceedixig value. Tlie i-emarks that I shall now make 
upon it are merely sng'gcstive of farther enquiry^ and must neces- 
sarily be brief. 

In the first place it is evident that the rent-roil of tlie Priory 
was decreasing. Places arc mentioned aa lying waste whicli 
were at one time in ciJtivation and productive, and the receipts, 
generallyj were lower than tliey had heeu.^ This no douht was 
caused in the first instance by the misery which followed the 
incursions of the Scots, and these inroads were succeeded by a 
complete disorgauization of society in Tindale, Thieves and 
marauders were plentiful on both aides of the Borders, but 
Hexbamahire aeeras to have been their stronghold. The farmers 
and tenants mnst have been poor men. They only held a. few 
aejes of land, and of these acres the produce was precarious.

THK PREFACE. PART I. 



HexhaiQ was cxem|illfied on every estate that it posaeaacdi A 
leuieut laadlord, however, was not the person to have such 
tenants as were to he foiuid in Tindale. Tlie rents fell, and, 
although small, were often unpaid. Land was neg-lcctedj and 
tL-eu passed out of cidtivatioii. Houses became ruins ; the very 
sites of villages were ploughed up ; and the population would 
gradually deerease. It is said that, a century ago, there was 
Trnt little tillage laud in Tindale. The Biaek Book will etew 
that oven in the dark days of the canons of Hexliam a very 
diftcreiit atatc of things prevailed. If this evidence were want- 
ing, the lay-riggs, aa tliey are called, which the rich sward of 
untold years has heen miahle to ohliterate, still shew decisively 
that in days long gone by the ploughman and the sower liave 
been there. 

To form some idea of the manner in which the Prior and 
Convent of Hexham wished to arrange and manage their eatates, 
it will be well to take aa an example one or two places which 
were contiguous to their abode, and consequently under their 
own eye. It is raasonable to suppose that these would be re- 
garded as model farms or eatatea,' Take, for iustaneG,the system 
that iircvailcd at Anwiek, Kirk-heaton, "Dalton, and Nesbit. In 
all the.se places the land is divided out between three kinds of 
tenante, whom we may call faraaera, liuabandmen, and cottagers. 
It is most ol)5ervahle, that every person secras to have bad some 
portion of land, and there was no better way in Tiudale to make 
the land productive audits cidtivators honest and iiid iistrious. 

1. The farmers at Anwiek were the canons themselves : at 
the other places tliey were persons who held the lands either by 
homage, or hy lease. They were the chief persons in the 
villages, a.nd had the lai'gest share of land.

9. Hashands or husbandmen. A Imsbanft-laiifl was a stated 
quantity vaj^iflg. according to the landlord's will, aud scarcely 
"tlie same in aay two places. In Anwick there were twelve 
Eiusbaud-limda, eacli of sLsteeu acres of arable and meadow 
land. In Dalton tliore were nineteen Imsband-landa, eleven of 
tweuty-three acres and eight of sixteen. In Xesbit there were 
uinetecn husband-lands, each of twenty-five screa. In Sa-ndhoe 
and Bingfield a husband-laud consisted of twenty-four acres. 
In Kii'k-hcatoii it was as much aa thirty-four. As the number 
of acres waa larger^ the rent per aare was lower, thus shewing 
that the best land was let in the smallest quantities. In Pres- 
dale, near AlatoUj a hush and- land contained twenty-four acres, 
Or two osgaugs, 

3. Cottagers. In Anwick there were nineteen cottagers to 
twelve husbandmen, each cottager having his cottage and a 
portion of land. One haa aa much a.s nine acrea, but most of 
tlie others have less than five. In Dalton there were but seven 
cottagers, all of whom save one had a cottage and three aerea 
of land. In Ncsbit there were four cottagers, each with a cot- 
tage and three acres of land. In Sandlioe there were twelve 
cottagers, each having a house and an acre of land or less. In 
Bingfield there were twelve cottagers, most of whom had six 
acres of land. In Kirk-heaton there were eight cottagers, each 
having' between three and seven acreK of land. One has aa 
much as thirteeu acres, hut it was waste, Origiually each 
cottager in this place had seven acrea of ground. Oeca.iionally 
a garden appertains to a cottage. 

The annual rent of these lands, and of all the other meadow 
and arable ground in Northumberland belonging to the Priory, 
ran from sispeiice to a shilling an acre, and the rent of a cottage 
seems to have been eighteenpence or two sliillinga. In addition 
to this there were various aerrices and duties for which the 
tenants were responsible, and which varied slightly in different 
places — a few days' works at tlie mill or at liedging, and the 
gift of a coek or a hen to the landlord — but in no eaees were

tliey biu'deneomc ; and the addition to the rent wliicTi tliey 
caused would in no case exceed twopence p&r aci"e. We have 
thus a pretty good idea of the sums which accrued to the canons 
of Hexham from their best land, and of the way in which that 
land was portioned out. 

Another claas of persons peepa out now and then, for it still 
existed^ and that is the serfa. In Eaehwick they lield certain 
portions of land called bondagia (there were seven of them), 
each liondar/ium consisting of twenty-four acres of arable land 
and meadow.' The serfs also appear here aiul there throughout 
the whole rental under the title of nativi dwnini. It is. evident 
that, whatever tlieir social position was, they could hold land, 
and they are generally to be found among the cottagers. And 
yet in the eye of the law they were really slaves, and belonged 
to their lords as much as the negro did to the planter. At an 
earlier period I have discovered several documents in which an 
arcLhishop of York sella a naticus and hia wife and children, 
hag and haggage. Such trausactioua were common enough. 

As a general rule, the Prior and canons let all their lands in 
a pai'tiRular plaee to one person or set of persons. The lessees 
had their own sub-tenants and cottagers, but that was a matter 
in which the caiiona of Hexham had no interest, and such mat- 
ters are not mentioned in their Rental.. They content them- 
selves with making a most minute description of the vanous 
lands that belonged to them in every plaee, We see also that, 
like other monastic bodies, the Prior and canons appropriated 
estates to the use of various offices within their house. Several 
belonged to the buraar and the eacrist, The cellarer of the 
kitchen Lad, very properly, a lar^e share, and the spiccry of 
the convent was not forgottea. 

It 18 very difficult to understand how, with all their care, 
the canons, or any other landowners in the North, were able to 
understand what lands were really their own. Even that part 
of the country which was under cultivation was very often

Tinenclofled. Thig accounts for the very careful way in wliich 
the bouiKlaiies of so many of the estates of Hexham aa"c stated 
in the Black Book. If the owners of land had now and theo 
as a limit one of the few hedges that existed (there were no 
stone walls), or, tetter than that, the course of a brook or 
burnj they were most fortunate ; very often tliere was a syke or 
ditch that separated them from a neighbour, hut frequently 
there seems merely to have been some imaginary line pointing 
to a saugb or willow, or some standing stone, as it was called, 
the relie of a still wilder age. Mercs or boundary stones were 
common enough upon the moors. Mote puzzling than any- 
thing else seems to have been the possesaion of balf-acreSj or 
roods, or perches in the middle of a field. It seems probable 
that several landowners combined occasionally to assart or rid a 
piece of moor or woodland, and that they divided it among 
themselves iJi small portions, one adjoining to or overlajjping 
the other, like the allotments in the common gai'den of a 
Tillage, although far more difficult to distingTiiBh.J To ascer- 
tain the rights of the several landlords, it was Customary te 
take the verdict of n jui^.' The canons seem to have had no 
idea of uniting their property, as they might have done, by 
exchange or othenvise. Probably they had no desire to part 
with even a fragment of land which had been made solemnly 
Over to them; and they held it on, as its donor mahed, often 
with little or no profit and at much inconvenience. It is sin- 
gular that when their lands were in this condition, and their 
ancient muniments lost, we find so few attempts made to wrest 
any of their poase&sions from the canons : but many others were 
in the same plight. 

The Prior and Convent had many wild moors within their 
territories, and on them it was even more difficult to say what

chief should ensue. Tiierc is little said of the native wooila with 
which the country must have abounded, filled with oaks and 
ashea, and with a goodly undergrowth of hazel and holly, yew 
and ivy. We find little allusion to the game, which must have 
been plentiful everywhere. The canons had two fisheries for 
salmon at Newbum, but the vicar of that place had his nets, 
and paid well for his sport.' Above that place no fisheries on 
tlie Tyne arc recorded, although that river was open to the canons 
wherever their own nud the ai-chbishop*s lands adjoined it/ so 
tliat it is probable that the loclt at ByweU was in esistence, 
■which checlted the ran of the Baloion. The canons, bowerer, 
had enclosed parks of tlieii' own, and by an early grant of 
Edward L they had the right of free iifarren on several of their 
estates.™ The visitations of their house shew that they were 
oidy too ready to join in the chase." Tliey would look with 
some envy upon Master Peter de Inaula, who, with his brother, 
Sir John, had a wider range thiin themselves, and could follow 
the chase over the wliole of the 
archbiahop'a lands in Hexhamshire.p 
SeverEd objects are mentioned in 
the Black Book whieh served now

a peculiar interest still attaches itself.

memorials of early British or Celtic tiibes, and some of them 
still exist to remiud us paiiifiillj how eutu-cily ignorant we are 
Oif the history of the earliest inhabitants of our island.? The 
Roman wall is mentioued once or twice, and the Prior of 
Hexham, from his tower at CarraWj could look out upon an 
extensive reach of that magnificent harrier, out of which, no 
douht, his fortaJice wae constructed. The occasional occur- 
renco of the word Chester appeinded to a, place maliea us tliink 
that we have the site of some mile-eastle or camp iu con- 
nection either with the wall or the WatKng-strect/ That sin- 
gular word Deer-street is several times nsed for the Watling- 
street.' It occurs also in Syrneon's History of St. Cuthbert,' and 
in a deed connected with the ahbey of Melrose. Does it mean 
the road to or fcora Deira ? or the Forest Road ? Tliafc aucEeufc 
and mysterious boundary the Black-dyke is also mentioued, 
and we have the Maiden-gate, and the Cnrli&le-gate," whieh is 
the {^cat Homan road between Carlisle and Newcastle. 

The Black Book contains but few notices of unusual eervieea 
and tenures. Some of the tenants in Durham and Yorkshire 
were bound to provide lodging, bay, straw, fuel, and candles 
for the Prior when he paid them a visit. No races of ginger, 
nor grains of pepper, nor a rose in the proper season of the 
yeafj are mentioned : an occasional cock or hen for the Prior's 
larder is, perhaps, the only addition to the almost imiveraal 
money -payment. The Prioress of Lamhley, in return for some 
privileges at Byrea, supplied a decent towel or board-eloth an- 
nually for the Prior's table." One curiona custom must not be

any charge for moultcr. For the same reason the husbaud of 
the lady was to rise whenever the Prior of Hexham met hJra 
and to offer liim his seat, unless his ecclesiastical superior cod- 
deBcendGd to bid him retain hia place." May not thia cuatora 
have been some kind of a perpctioatioii of an acknowledg-ment 
of the offence of Edgar, sOti of Earl Coepatric, and Robert and 
Uctred Fitz Meldred, who asBaulted the suite of the Prior at 
Dissiugtou in the twelfth eentiuy, and slew three of his servants?* 

The names assigned to the different liehls and portions of 
oatatcB in Tyndale will attract the attention of the philologist. 
The ingenuity of succeaaiTc lajidowncra must have been often 
tased to create ao many appeUationSf and it would be interest- 
ing to know whether, as a general rule, they arc still used. 
Occasionally moat suggestive names are found. At Colden 
there was a curiously-shaped rock called Colden Kirk, and in 
the same place there was a Trow-hill and a Trow-hnrn, a trow 
being a fairy." In Presdale, near AktoUj th^re was a Hendsi'- + 
fell/ which carries \^ at once to a less gentle influence that that 
of the good people. Dedmanayke* makes the lover of good 
Border ballads, even though they are occasionally spurious, 
tliink of the Deadman's ahaw, at which one of the Fetlieistau- 
haughs ia said to have been killed. Ravenstan-more* tells ua 
of a resting-place of a bird which was at one time a regnlar 
inhabitant of many parts of the county. But ravens and red 
deer, and many of the birds and beasts, which were once so 
common in Tindale, are no longer to be found there. 

The Black Book must now be left to the reader. To throw 

more light on the subject of which it treats, I have appended 

to it all the deeds connected with the Priory of Hexham and its 

estates that have occurred to me. It will be seen that they

means numerous. No trouble, howeverj has lieen spared in. 
gatliering tLem together. The greatest number is to be found 
m tlte registera of the arcthisbopa and the dean and chapter of 
York. When Dodsivorth, the antiquary, visited Hexham in 
1638, he made notes of some deeds which he diseovered in the 
pOBsesaion of Sir John Fenwickj the then lord of the manor. 
A most eareful aearch after theae documents has been altogether 
fruitleas. They are not in Mr. Beaumont's munJment-box, nor 
are they in the possession either of Sir Walter Calverley Tre- 
velyan or Sir Edward Blackett, tlie representatives of the two 
lines of the family of Blackctt. 1 have also been unable to find 
them at Castle Howard among' the papers belonging to the 
faraoua Sir John Fenwick, which came into the posseaaion of 
hia lirother-in-law, the carl of Carlisle. It is probable that 
these charters have been dcsti"oyed long ago. There is no ehar- 
tulary of Hexhara in esiatence. I muat^ however, make an 
exception in favour of a fragment of a cliarter-book formerly 
belonging to Ralph Thoresby, of Leeds, and now in the possea- 
aion of Mr. John Gough Nichols, one of the treasurers of this 
Society. A pretty full abstract of this is printed in the Col- 
lectanea Topograpliica.' It consists merely of fourteen folios 
of a email quarto size, and it relates exclusively to the York- 
shire property of the Priory. I ghonld have liked to have 
given this manuscript entire, but its owner htta unfortunately 
mislaid it. 

The registers at York contain many documents relating to 
the archbishop's regality of Hexham and his officers. These 
will probably he given on some other occasion by themaelvea. 
It would be perplexing to mix them up in this volume with the 
papers which relate cxeluaively to the Priory.

THE ARCHITECTURE OF HEXH^VM PRIOKY. 

The chief entrance to the close was formerly tlirougli a gate- 
house on the north side of the conventual church, now partially 
ruined. It appears to have bcKii built about the close of the 
twelfth century, and was divided inside into tWee bays, the 
archways at each end heing aemi-circuiar. The first bay from 
the north formed an open vestibule or porch, crossed,, at its 
eastern extremity, by a thick M-all, now removed; In which, 
when Mr. Hufcehinaon wrote his View of JJorthumberlaud in 
1778, was " a large gatewa^y for horsemen and carriages, and a 
narrow one for foot i>a33eiigcrs."'' A walled-up doorway ou the 
west aide communicated with the porter's lodge, of which no 
other traces remain. The vaulting has been removed witliiu 
memory, but Mr- Hutchinson describes it aa " of ribbed arch- 
ing, luecting iu the centre ; the interstices filled with tliin. 
atones or bricksj such as are seen in Boinan works." Mr. Pen- 
nant sayB that " this gate is of the old Sason architecture, and 
perhaps part of the labours of the great Wilfrid.-" In a fence 
wall, built after the Keformation, and leading from the east 
side of this gate-house towards the chiu'ch, are many large 
atones which evidently have formed part of a Sason building. 
Similar stones may be also seen in the westeni boundaiy of the 
churchyard. 

The earliest church at Hexham was begun by Wilfrid in 
6?'4. The most iutelllgiblc deBcriptlou of it has been given us

by Prior Richard in his Hktory of the Church of Hexhara, 
altlioiigli many most desirable paxticidai's are omitted. He says 
that it was an edifice of immense len^h and height, and divided 
iato three stories, in which we recogmze an arcade, and conse- 
quently aisles, a triforium and. a clerestory. The capitals of 
the columns and the " arcus sanctuarit" were enriched with 
sculptm'ea and painting. The nave was surrounded (he does 
not say whetbcr continuously or not) " appentiliis et parlicihus" 
which may have been a series of chapels placed at right angles 
with the navcj and on each sido open to it. In tlieBe append- 
ages or porticoes, which must have been chambered, — since 
eome of tliera retained so much elevation as to appear like for- 
tresses and towers in Prior Richard's day, — Wiltrtd instituted,

also "cochletB," or lofty round towers, probably placed at the 
west end, in a similar position as the " cochlet^" represented iu 
a plan of the monastery of St. Gall, which will be found in the 
fifth volume of the Arclueological Journal. This monastery 
was begun in the year 839, and its arrangements may form 
suggestive illustrations of Prior Richard's desenption of the 
church of Hexham. The founder also suiTOiuuled the atriimi, 
or site of the church, with a wall of great subetance and strength, 
and conducted water tlirough the towu in a stone channel to the 
offices of the monastery. Not many yeai-s ago, some earthen- 
ware pipes were found fitted neatly into each other in situ, in

Lad beeu devastated and ruined during the lapse of QeRnyfive 
iundred years. 

The building of which Wilfrid was ttc founder seems to 
have been completed by Acca, hia Mend and successor. It 
continued uninjured until the year 875, when every part of the 
monastery, except the stoue-workj was destroyed in an invasion 
of the Danes. It is possible that some attempts at restoration 
may have been soon made, but they did not Buccecd, Some 
years after the Conquest, Eilaf, the priest of Hexham, was the 
fir&t person to renovate hia ruined choreh. lie put new roofs 
on the old walls, and did his best to make things seemly and 
decent. . Thia brings the architectural history of Heiham down 
to the time of Prior Richard in the middle of the twelfth 
centmy. It is evident from his description that the stone-work 
of the Priory in his day was the same that Wilfrid Iiad erected 
in the sevonth ccntiiry. ; . , 

I shall now speak more minutely about the reinaiiis of Saxon 
work at Hexham. This, ia a point of the veiy deepest interest, 
heeanae at no other place, in England do we find Cliristian 
architecture brought into closer contact with the handiwork of 
Roman buiJders, native as well as foreign. Wilfiid, we are 
expressly tokl, had a number of Italian and French masons in 
hia en^loy, and I think that some of their work may still be 
recognized. At Bipon, when any exeavatiou is made on the 
site of "Wilfrid's monastery, a number of small white teaaei^ 
are discovered such as are only found in thia country in or near 
Roman camps. In the chapel of St. Mary Magdalene, close 
to the same town, before the altar, lies a coloured teaselatcd 
pavement which cannot hut be traced to the same source, and 
which has evidently been constructed to liU a position such as it 
at present occupies. At Hexham Wilfrid and his band of 
artizana found on the spot, and in ita immediate vicinity, the 
romadna of Roman buildings of considerable grandeur and im- 
portance, and his workmen would recognize with pleasure the 
workmanship of kindred hands. There arc a few sculptured

atonee at Hexham, -which will be alluiled to hereafter, which 
it is difficult to appropriate with certainty either to Cliriatian 
or Pagan hanrls. With regard to the church that Wilfrid 
built at Hexham, we ai'c told plainly that in this country it 
was unsurpassed ; and that in sculpturej painting, and archi- 
tecture in general, there was nothing like it on this &ide of 
the Alps. It owed nothing, in fact, to Pictish or Irish taste, 
nor was it intended that it ehonl-d owe auythingj for it was 
obTioiialy Wilfiid's wish to aaaiinilate English architecture to 
the French and ItaJianj just as he had united tlioae coiintriea 
in ecclesiastical uses and observances. Hciham was the first 
church that he built in Bernicia, and at Hesham, therefore, we 
may expect to Had some traces of French or Italian ai't. The 
principal remains that we have of Saxon sculpture are fragments 
of crosses, and at Hexham we olisene on them that peculiar 
use of the vine which is ao often seen in the earliest churches 
on the Continent. This is shewn by the croaaca whic^h are 
engraved in the first volume of this work, and by one which is 
still preserved at the Spital. In the ease of the cross wliieh 
may possibly hare commemorated Acca, there ia a beauty of 
execution and design which suggesta at once its foreign origin. 
The same thing may he said of the sculptures represented on 
the following page, which are now iu the possession of Mr. 
Fairless. The larger of the two was used for steps oji the site 
of St, Mary's church. There is a classic severity of style in 
the treatmcDt which is at once observable. The same ioSucnce 
may be traced on the banlia of the Tyne, where, the religious 
suaes were, through Benedict Biscop, coimected immediately 
rith Home, The scidptuj"CB at Jarrow bear strong testimony to 

tthis. There is one in particular representing two dovea seated 
an the tendrils of a vine, — a design which ia seen frequently in 

|Italy and France. 

That it was the design of Wilfrid to bring a now character of 

larchiteeture into England, and that he did so to a great extent 
iccessfully, is evident, I think, from the similarity between

the greater part of the Saxon sculptured remains that have beeu 
discovered in tlie tract of countrj' which was ruled over hy the 
Ijiabop or archbishop of York and Lis Buffragaua. That tract 
conapriaed at one time the whole of the Lowlanda of Scotland 
lip to the Frith of Forth. Beyond that barrier, the atonesj 
eovered with myaterious symbols, arc found in grea.t ahundaiice : 
on this side a very different class at once begins ; and at Aber- 
com itselfj the seat of a bishop for a very short period, we have 
on a cross a vine represented in the same remarkable way in 
which it la treated at Hexham. The same pattern may he seen 
at Bcwcastle and at Dkley ; and I may eayj g"enerally, that the 
croeaea from the Frith of Forth Bonthwards, throughout North- 
nmberland, Durham, and Yorkshii'e, hear evident traces of 
huTug been created by the same school of art. The iaflocncc 
of the monks of loiia upon the old kingdom of Northurabria 
lasted for too short a time to enable them to make such a 
school ; nor is it likely that plain simple men, as they were, 
should have Wilfrid's mao;uificent spirit, or any wish to make 
architectui'e a direct means of nursing' devotion. It seems to me 
that Wilfrid was the originator of the heautiiiil forms that appear 
at Hexham and other plaeesj and which overran Northmnbri*. 
I do not say, foe one moment that sculptured €ro38«3 had not 
been in use in that conntry before his time ; far from it. They 
had come into it perhaps with Paulinus, perhaps firam Ireland ; 
but in the hands of "Wilfrid's foreign masons they appeared in 
a now character, with foreign deaigua and ornamentation. The 
Icsaons of taste which these men gave must have been soon 
lost, as the croasea in Northumbria are often somewhat rude. 
There is little of that marvellous beauty ■which characterizes 
the sculptured memorials in the north and east of Scotland, 
and which, although derived perhaps more immediately from 
Irelandj is at the same time of an Eastern character. I am 
not speaking now of the etrange symbols which the zeal and 
inteUigence of the Scottisli antiquaries will, 1 trust, be soon 
able to explain.

vringa of the transept, may not he of this early date. The 
eontig;uous piera of the tower are not bonded ioto these walls 
behiDd tbera. Iiuleed, if the church which the Early Englitih 
btiildei'a of the choir began to recoiistruot hnd a eentrid tower 
iji the poaitiun of that which now remaius of suhseqiient date, 
they could not have removed this portion of the pre^nous clioii' 
without damaging its enatem superstructure. The ividth of 
the apace betiFcen these augles, greater than that which might 
be supposed to have oeeurred in a Saxou fabric, does not aft'eot 
the queatiou ; for the ehuieh which Wilfrid buUt, and which 
probably was repaired and uol altered materially in plan after 
tlic Norman ooiMjuest, Mtis of iniuaual dimensions; and in the 
present church of Stowe, in Lincolnshire — "the only example 
now remaining of ivhat a Saxon church of the largest class 
was " — the ■nidtb of the clioir, as determined by the Sason 
piers of the centrnl tower, is twenty-four feet.-''' Moreover, it 
will be remembered that the capacious centre tower of York 
Minster rests on piers containiu;;: in their cores similar angles 
of Norman work, which could not safely be removed when the 
luljaceiit parts of the fabric were reconstructed. 

If this supposition be correct, Wilfrid's church — or^, at all 
events, one which retjuired rebuilding at the end of the twelfth 
century — must have covered a considerable portion of the 
Space occupied hy the Early English structure, the central 
square of each being of the same dimeusiouB ; and this idea 
may derive some confirniation from the relative position of the 
older and the jircsent choir and the crypt ; for if a line he 
drawn eastward thi-ough the centre of the latter, it will fall 
midway of the tower and these presumed angles of the Saxon 
dioir. It is improbable, also, that WiUnd's ci-ypt was origin- 
ally placed in any other than in its present relative position, for

had it beeu inti-odueed uuder the eastern end of his church, as 
found in churcbee of subsequent date, the Eai'ly Kiiglish 
rebuilders must have rejected westwai'd, beyond theif wallB, a 
coneiderahle portion of a hallowed site which had far more 
that! ordiuary claims on their rpneration and assidiioua pro- 
tection. 

Both Eddi and Prior Kichard seem to have been especially 
struck with the apartments which Wilfi'id /Gonstructed deep 
down helow this chureh, and it itiay have been thut he firat 
iiitJ'oduced such features in English churches. Eddi, speaking 
of the church, aays : — " Cnjns profunditatem in terra cum 
domibus mixifice politia lapidibu3 fundatam," etc. Kichard 
speaks more explicitly of crypts, undergi'omid oratories, and 
winding passages. Of these, with their appurtenant passsgea, 
only oue is now known, and that so recently discovered as the 
year 1726, although, most probablyj it will be found at a future 
day to communicate with another. Whatever position it may 
have occupied with reference to its original superstructure, it 
■was left by the early Euglish rebuilders at the eastern extremity 
of their nave. That portion of the church is now destroyed, 
and the crypt is therefore now entered from the churchyard. 
There is no object of similar character in the kingdom, except 
one in the cathedral church of Ripon, which unquestionably 
owes its origin to St. AYilfrid. The annexed plans^ will describe 
better than words in what respects they resemble each other; 
but it must be remembered that the approach to the crypt of 
Ripon was altered when the central tower wa^ erected above it. 
As to other points of difference in detail, the chapel of the 
crypt at Hexharu is rather larger than that of Ripon, measuring 
13 feet 4 inches by 8 feet, against 11 feet 3 inches by 7 feet 9 
inches. It is also placed much deeper jn the ground, and is 
constructed almost entirely of atones brought froBQ a Romau

country. In the one,' the cells at the west end of the flanking 
passages have triangular roofs; in the other, the cells are not 
defined from the pasaages hy arches, and are covered with Hat 
stones. At Hexham the aiiti-chapel has a barrel vault, at 
Eipon a aemi-vaalt only. In the one, two pasKsgea lead east- 
ward and one southward j the other has hut onp outlet towards 
the choir. In this cryjit the heads of the niehes are flat, and 
there ar& none in the eastern wall ; in the otherj they hare 
semi-circular heads, and there is one on the north side of the 
apace once occupied hy the altar, and a larger one above that 
space, in the middle of the wall. But both the crjijts have 
obviously proceeded from a coiumon type, although the idea ia 
more elaborated nt Hexham than at Ripon. Both chapels have 
their entrances in the same positions. In both, the eemi- 
circular heatle of the doonvays, which are of the same height — 
6 feet 3 inches — are cut out of horizontal slabs. The passages 
in each agree in width within an inch. Both have funnel-lite 
apertures in the heads of the nicheSj and deep round basins in 
the bases. In both, the north-east niche is -pierced through to 
tlie passELge behind. Both have a small rectangular opening

Irrespective of the general interest "which must attach to 
this Crypt as one of the earliest and moat curious of the Sason 
etructurea that we possesSj it is remarkable from having been 
built almost entirely of stones which have been used in au 
earlier work. Two of these bear Roman ioscriptiona, and tlie 
rest are presumed to have had the same oiigiii. Evidently 
they have been used here as the moat eligible materiala which 
"Wilfrid TOuld command, andj as ia shewn by their positionsj 
not for the sake of ornament or enriching the character of his 
design. The lesser inscription contains fragmciita of fire linesj 
which have been so injured by insertion in its present position 
as to be unintelU^ble. The other is on a stonej which forms 
the coTer of the aouth-caat angle of the passage which ilanka 
the crypt on the north. It is engraved iu Horsley's Britannia 
Romana, together with a Boman altaij dedicated to Quintua 
CalpuraiuB Concesainua, apparently a prefect of a troop of 
Corionototari, which was observed also by Stukely and GalCj 
when they visited the crypt in the year in which it was dis- 
covered, hut which cannot now he found. 

Of the sculptured and incised stones which are to be 
observed on all sides in the crypt there are two pieces of a 
Roman eornice in the southei'n passage, of which an example 
is engraved in the Archseological Joiu'ual/ together with two 
patterns, of which Mr. Hudson Turner there saya : — " Though 
some doubt may be entertained, we are inclined to consi<ler 
thera relics of that debased style of art which marked the 
works of the Roman legionariea in Britain." 1 cannot enter 
into his doubtftilncssj being unable to conceive from what 
Saxon building they could have bee)i brought, or what builder 
could have produced aucti works between the departure of 
the Romans and the advent of Wilfrid. Within tlie last few

past been used as a private burial-place, aud the entrruice is 
covered with a table of marble of pi-odigious size, which is not 
usually moved but at the denunciation of mortality. The 
massive clauslram was heaved from the mouth, of the vault by 
iron croTca and i-oUcrs, at which the ground trembled over the 
arches." This covering is removed, but immediate access to 
the crypt is only obtaiucd now, as it was then, by descending

Blink above tlie foot of the original entrance from the weet, 
eeveral of the steps of which, prolonged to their former length 
in the plaOj may still be seen. After passing tlirough a narrow 
doorway or opening in the wall with a semi-circular bead, devoid 
CTen of the accompaniment of a chamfer, the visitor enters the 
anti-chapel, a chamber with a barrel vault 9 feet 2 incbea long, 
5 feet 7 inches wide, and 9 feet in estreme height. Nearly in 
the centre of tlie vault, which shews some atones of the cbarac- 
teriatie Saxon dressing, are tracca nf a small rectangular open- 
ing, like one in a similar position in the crypt at Ripon; but for 
what purpose it baa been used (the coincidence inclining me to 
think it ia not merely accidental) it ia not eaay to conjecture. 
In the south wall is a small rece&s or niche, with a flat head in 
front, hut hollow like a funnel behind, and with a deep circular 
cavity ot basin in the base. This niche, which resembles all 
the rest in the crypt, is al^o perfectly uuoriiamented. From 
this chamber we paas by a doorway oppoaite to that by which 
we entered, and of -simdai' size and character, into the chapel 
or main body of the crypt. It is vaulted, like the anti-chapel, 
and to the aanie height, the length being 13 feet -l- inches, and 
the width 8 feet. There is a niche in the west wall, on the 
right hand as we enter. The only membci;' on the north side ia 
a niche towards the east end, in all reapecta like the rest; but 
with this additionul peculiarity, which appears not to have been 
noticed by previous, writers on the crjpt, that, like the cele- 
brated " St. Wilfrid's Needle," exactly in the same position in 
the crypt at Ripon, it is voided to the passage ou the other side 
of the waU. For what pnrpoj^e these pecidiar openings may 
have been originally used it is, perhaps, now useless to inquire.

apex of which is 8 feet from the floor. Hence we pass east- 
wai-d, through an archway, into a passage 3 feet G inches broad, 
and corered with large atones placed horizontallyj leading in the 
same direction for tlie space of 8 feet 6 inches, witt a gentle 
ascent. At this point it turns sontbward, and further pi-ogress 
was until recently arrested by a dry wall, probably placed 
there, like one in the passage on the opposite aide of the crypt, 
wlieri the ■western piers of the tower of the cliurch were 
strengthened by the superincumbent buttresses. We can, liow- 
ever, now sec that the western side of it continues in the same 
southern direction for the space of ten feet and more, and that 
near the point of divergence another passage has gone forward 
towards the east; but the unprotected state of the earth and 
etonea overhead prevents further investigations from this side, 
though the Bouthem passage might probably be traced by an 
excavation opposite the dooi-way which formerly led from the

remains iinesplored that a person statioaed in it can distinctly 
hear wonis spoken in the transept of the church. It is very 
desii'able that this outlet should he restored, for many persona 
might thereby be enabled to visit the crypt who cannot use the 
present very inconvenient mode of entrance. 

After a very careful examination of the church, I have been 
unable to discover any traces of pure Norman architecture, or 
any materials that might he supposed to have been used in a 
bnilding of that character. It is entirely Early English, com- 
mencing with transitional detail; but how far the gronnd- 
plan has hceu suggested from the previous structure, there are 
no fact* upon Tvbich to base a definite judgment. The work of 
reconstruction commenced with the choir, at the very end 
of the twelfth century. Then followed, at respective periods, 
very briefly removed, the south transept, the west side and the 
end of the north transept, the south side of the same transept, 
the central tower, and the nave; hut whether the latter por- 
tion was completely tranafonncd or not wc are not now able to 
ascertain. In sui-vcying the building I shall proceed in the 
same course, describing first the external, and then the internal 
features. 

The elevations of both the north and south sides of the choir 
exhibit six. bays, the eastern one of each having been recently 
rebuilt. In the aisles they are divided by shallow fiat buttresses, 
or Yjila&tf rs, rising from & splayed base, the heads dying into the 
cnrbel tabic. In each is a lancet light, under a plain head 
supported by single cylindrical shafts, and covered by a hood 
moulding, which passes from light to light continuouBly over 
the buttresses, like the string course on which the windows 
stand. About midway is a pointed doorway walled up on a 
plane with the enclosing wall, but as it hEis neither been moidded 
nor splayed in the jambs or the architrave, and has no hood 
moulding either witbiu or without, it may have originally heen 
introduced for a temporary purpose. In the clerestory the divi- 
sione are made by narrower pilasters than those of the aialeti.

of three pointed memhera siipportpd by single cyliiidrieid ^liafta, 
— the central and widest one enclosing a lancet light, AbovCj 
is a corbel table and plain coped parapet. The eastern fafade 
lias been recently rebuilt, but an idea of its general character 
may be formed from a north-east "prospect" of the cliurchj 
taken about the ycai' UlGl,^ The central Gompartnicnt seems to 
have been flanked by two large buttresses staged only onee on 
a level with tlie parapet of the clereFtorj, above which point they 
aesmne the shape of lofty square tnrreta with pyramidal heads, 
not unlike those which their btiilders may have admired in the 
transitional Norman work of their patron, archbishop Bxjger, at 
Ripoii. On the apes of the gtihle was a lai'ge pinnacle with a 
niche in front, surmqtinted by a plain Latin oross having three 
smaller erosaes at its base, — one on each aide, and one in fi^nt 
attached to the head of the niche. How faithfully the artist 
has rendered the detail may be a question on which different 
opinions may be entertained. The same observation will apply 
to the great east window, which is represented in the same 
plate as divided into five Lighb; under two intersecting sab- 
archea, the space in the head of the main arch, above the point 
of intersection, licing filled apparently with four quatrefoila; 
while the rest of the tracery is formed by merely doubbng the 
number of the mullions of the lights below. The inaccuracy 
which occurs in many of the plates in the Monasticon, especially 
in the d.elineation of tracery, need not indeed have raised a 
doubt whether such a window was inserted at tlie close of the 
flffcee]ith century, when t!ie fittings of the choii- appear to have 
been renovated, had not a window of an earlier character actually 
oceu]iie(l its place luitil about thirty years ago, when another of 
somewhat similar design was substituted, and in its turn was 
superseded at the recent rebuilding of the gable. Wrightj in

his History of Hesliam^ says of tlie window which lie saw in the 
year 1823, that it "is singular ia this, that it is, or appears to 
be, broader at the spring of the ardi than at the base of the 
columns. It i& likewise distingiiislied by that ornameut com- 
monly called the witches' wheel. It is divided by 'slender 
shafts of shapely stoue,' as usual : but the great oriiaoieut of 
sueh buildings, and what ought paiticulai'ly to distinguish them 
—painted glass, ia totally wanting." He then goea on to 
" lament the nmtUaied state in which it is/' a fact which iu one 
resjiect corroboratea the opinion exprcased to me by a competent 
observer who had examined it,, that the tracery had remained 
unaltered for a much longer period than that which had elapsed 
since the publication of Dngdale's engrax'ing. If a conjecture 
may be hazarded on an object of which we have a very impertect 
description, I would suggest that the old window was inserted 
soon after the spoliation of the Church by the Scots in 1296, in 
the place probably of two tiei's of lancet Ughts, anrmotmted by 
a wheel; and that iu the enlargement of the s-pace to obtain a 
lighter efi'ect, while the walla and shafts between the lights were 
diminished to mullions, a semblance of the wheel was fondly 
retained in the disposition of the tracery by which it had been 
displaced. Mr. Fairlesa haa seen a piece of pot metal glaasj 
taken from this window, painted with a brown pattern in the 
style which obtained in the latter pai-t of the thirteenth 
century. 

As to the eastem ends of the choir aisles, their windows 
are obscured in Dugdale'a view, bat each outer angle ia Hanked 
by a large buttress wliich rises above the roof in the shape of a 
square turret with a pyramidal cap; there appears also to have 
been a light on each side for the use of the triforium, flanked 
on the outer side by a pointed blank recess. 

Rinining along the eastern wall there was formerly altind 
of eastern trausept, 59 feet long by %<> in width, called the old 
school. It probably took the place of the sanctuary, or shrines 
behind the altar, in which the remains of the Saints of the

church were for aivhUc deposited.' When they were rcmored 
and laid in closer proximity to the lugh altar, the site that they 
had once occupied seems to have been Tcserved for aacred pnr- 
pnaesj and a sehonl was erected there; for the Augimtinian 
canons were ordered to pay particular attention to learning md 
edudatioa. It is said that this school was bu-fued hy the Scots 
in 1296, when the achoLara were within it. This is the more 
probable, because, after the demolition of adjoining houses, 
the exterior of a building of this description was exposed, with 
five square-headed Decorated windows of three Ughta each 
looking' towards tiic cast, and DUe of four lights in the tiOrthem 
and southern gables, of the customary shape. Under each of 
tlicse windows there was a door. It may be presumed, there- 
fore, that this is the bnildiug which was erected in the fourteentTi 
century, when there was a temporary rest from invasion. Like 
its predecessor, it was used for the purposes of education. It 
appears in Dugdale's view of the church in KiGl. For some 
years the restoration of this curious adjunct to the choir 
was contemplated, hut from want of funds the project was 
deferred; other counsels prevailed, and it was ultimately demo- 
lished. 

On the east side of the eouth transept the clerestory ranges 
with that of the choir, and is made into bays by flat huttresacs 
witli pyramidal heads, but without a trefoil in them. The triple 
arcade, which in each division carries the light in the centre, 
is not supported by shafts hewn from a single stone, as. is usually 
the ease, and as they appear in the choir, but by semi-octagounl 
projections walled in courses. The corbel table, above which is 
a plain parapet, is continued ft'om the choir, A peculiar appear- 
ance is imparted to the aisle by its incluBion, in the southern- 
most of its three hays, of a passage and chamber above, which, 
in most othei* conventual churches, are found intervening between 
the south transept and the chapter-house. In its lower story

topped lights. AIjovc ia a triangular receaa, aiid theu come two 
windowa of the same shape as those beloiv^ but of larger dimen- 
siona. The buttress which flanks this compartment ou the 
north is eemi-octagoual, rising from a rectangular baae, but it 
has not the singular footing for the diagonal sides which appears 
on the CEist aide of the north traoseptj nor any other peculiarity 
about the head, ■which merely sinks into a flat pilaster below the 
corbel table. The buttress, however, nest to tKe choir, is triple- 
gabled at the stage where the octagonal chang^cs into the flat 
surface. The windows are of the Bame character as those of 
the contiguous aisle of the choir, but n&ither the string course 
on which they stand, nor that which eonnecta their hood 
mouldiiag, ranges with those of that earlier portion of the 
structure. 

In the south face of this transept the most prominent fea- 
tures are three plain lancet lights in the upper part, a very con- 
siderable space below having been flanked by the chapter-house 
and an apartment above it, the high pitched roof of which 
encroached on the tower portion of the central light. There 
are octagonal turrets at the two angleSj and the gable has been 
lowered and eornieed like that of the north wing of the tran- 
ecpt, at the cud of tlie fifteenth century. 

The west side, which originally formed a portion of the 
boimdary of the cloistcr-c^onrt, preaeuta, in its basement, a 
eontiuuous arcade of pointed members of varying width ; the 
largest encloshig the doorway which once opened into the 
cburchj and another, of leaser size, that which leads into the 
passage above mentioned at the extreme eud of the transept. 
Above, are the corbels which carried the pent-house roof of the 
eastern cloister. At the height of two courses of masonry work 
above them is a plain string courae, and at the distance of seven 
more, annther, on which, without a divisional buttress or ac- 
eompauimeut of any kind, etand the four lancet lights of the 
triforiura passage in the wall. Above theae, on another stiiiig 
couiae, comes the clerestory, having four seta of triplets with

maaoniy for shafts, as ou the oppnsitf side, and a similar corbel 
table and coped parapet as appear there. 

Of the nave nothing more remains above-ground than a 
fragment at the west end, which defiuca little more than the 
length of this part of the church, before it was burnt hy the 
Scots in 1390; and the I'act, otherwise ohvious, that it had an 
aisle on the north side. Whether the absence of a con-espoud- 
ing member on the south side was occasioned by some arrange- 
ment of the buildings on the west and south sides of the, 
cloister-court, which would uot admit of encroachment on its 
space ; or by some reason connected with the structure of the 
original Saxon nave ; or by «ome custom which prevailed 
among the Augustinian canonsj cannot perhaps be determined ; 
but I may remark that in the conventual obiireb of Bolton-iu- 
Craven, of that order, the nave baa no Bonthern aisle; and, in 
that case, the adoption of the plan must have been voluntary, 
and not dictated by pre-existing' arrangement. Be tliis as it 
may, it la obvious that this pecaliarlty must have produced a 
different design in the elevation of the northern and southern 
Gidesj and liow these were detailed — if the nave was eniirehj 
rvhiilt in. the Early Eugliali period — -we may form a tolerable 
opinion by examining tliose fragments of the two main walla 
which are now embedded in the great modern buttresses which 
support the central tower. On the' south side, the three string 
eourses which define the several peculiar divisions of the west 
side of the contiguous transept are prolonged into this remnant 
of the uave; s^uggesting the idea that, both internally and 
externally, the south side of the nave was of the same design as 
the present west wall of the south transept. Both, too, must 
have been similarly affected by their engagement with the 
cloister. Of the north side, we can only infer that the cleres- 
tory was of the &nm^ chsiracter m that of the contiguous west 
aide of the north transept, troai the continuation, as in the 
other caae, of the string; course \mder the windows, and also of 
the corbel tahlc, The pitch of the navp roof Is defined by the

■ffeather moulding on tLc lace of the toner, and that of itn aiale 
by the same kind, of iudicatioii in the wall of the trauaept. 
There appeura to have been no tower at the west end, and, moat 
probably, the gable was flanked externally by two turrets, like 
those which existed formcily at the opposite extremity of the 
church. The wall which now stands upon the fuundation of the 
»Outh side of tlie nave, bo as to form a screen and carry the 
cloister of the quadrangle, has been built in the fifteenth 
centnrj. 

The north traiwept is of graceful and effeetive character, 
and in several respects differs in design from the opposite wing, 
It rises from a bold basement, at a. libber level than that of the 
choir, into which a dog-tooth moulding is introduced. The 
main front is flanked, on the west hy a flat buttress, on the 
east by one of semi-octagoual form, wliichj after assuming a 
more slender substance below the base of the clerestory, be- 
comes a slight flat projection, the top of which ig sptayed to the 
wall. The doorway, placed in the centre, was erected by the 
Mercers' Company of Loudon, to which the patronage of the 
lecturcRliip in this church belougs ; but it appeaT.s from Dugdale's 
plate that, in the year 1601, one with a semi-circular head had 
occupied its place. Immediately above, and filling the inter- 
mediate space under the base of the clerestory, are three very 
long lancet lights under an arcade of pointed arches, the mem- 
bers containing the lights being the widest; but the cylindrical 
shafts, bauded twice in theii' elevation, which must have added 
materially to the design, are all destroyed, with the exception 
of a nook shaft in the western angle. The clerestory has three 
lancet lights under an arcade rising with the inclination of the 
gable, the members being divided, aa in instances previously 
noticed, not by shafts, but by serai-octagon al masonry. To- 
wai'ds the end of the fifteenth century tlie pitch of tlie gahle 
was lowered, and decorated with a cornice of concave moulding, 
charged with quatrcfoils, which rises frora two plain octagonal 
turrets with pointed heads, hut part of the Early English work.

THE FKEPACB. PART II. 



It is remarkable that these wiuJows, like all tUe rest in tire 
transept, whei-e a patliway crosBed the eill in the ititenor, are 
walled up to about the height of six feet, not improbably after 
the Scottish iunirsion lu 12!)fi, and for the purpose of shclter- 
iug those using the passage from arrows or other missiles that 
might othei'wisc haye been aimed at them bj those mai'auders, 
from whom the canons must have esperiencerl frequent amMnr- 
ance. The north faec of the attendant aisles is enclosed be- 
tween two Hemi -octagonal buttres&es, tlie head of the eastern 
one being adorned with a peculiar little finial. There ia one 
light under a triple arcade, and another above, with a hlunlc- 
pointed areli by its west side, whieh formerly lit the tnforiura, 
but ia now walled up, like the wbole of the clerestory lights oii 
the east aide of the transept. At what period this was done, 
and for what purpose, has not been aacortained. 

The west side of this wing of the transept is dirided by 
three buttresses. That which flanks the outer angle is flat, the 
others in a great degree resemble those on the east side ; and, 
after rising in a semi -octagonal form from a rectangular base, 
diminish to a smallei- substance, retaioiug, howcvcr, the same 
form, and then reeede to the wall to divide, in a flat shape, the 
bays of the clerestory. They difter, however, from the but- 
tresses on the east side, in the three outer faces of the upper 
serai-oetagon ending in a triple gable. The three long lancet 
lights whieh adorn this fajode ai'c not placed under an arcade, 
but are enrmoimted merely by a liood moulding, which moa 
continuously from end to end, passing over tlie buttreasea. The 
elcrestoiy resembles tliat of the opposite wing. 

The same arrangement is followed in the clerestory of the 
east aide of the north transept, where the aisle has three semi- 
octagonal bnttress-es, on rectangular bases, banded by the string 
course which runs at the sills of the windows, the foot of each 
diagonal face being turned up with a curious ornament. The 
heads recede to the wall, and one of them has a amall finial of 
foliage on a slender etcra, rising like a plant out of the upper

part, but not from the apex or estrerac upper surface of the 
frout face. The tliree lancet lights are each placed under an 
nj-catle of three members, the mouldrng which decorates the 
jam'bs and heads of the windowa being continued at their bases. 
The corbel table, prolonged horisontaUy acrosa the north face 
of the aiBle, is of the plainest eharacter. In Dugdale'a plate, 
a high buttressed wallj apparently of mediieval work, nina firora 
the north-east angle of the transept for a considerable distance, 
pa^rallel with tlie clxoiT. 

The tower, placed at the interseotion of the choir and 
transept, rises little higher than its square above their roofs, 
from which it emerges as a mere mass of plain masonry. A 
little above their ridges it ia slightly contracted, and each face 
eshibits, between two flat buttresses, a pointed arcade of five 
members — divided by triple shafts of masonry— of which the 
second and fourth are larger and liig;her than tlie rest, and 
contain in each a pointed window, originally subdi-v-idcd into 
two pointed hgbts by a miiUion now destroyed. The corbel 
table is Hurmouiited by an embattled parapet, enclosing a 
low pyramidal roof. In the plate just mentioned, the roof, 
which was then covered with lead, assumed the form of a 
spire, about as high as the width of the base of the tower. 
TJpon this was placed a cross aurraounted by a vane of con- 
Biderable height. These, however, like the present battle- 
ment, must have been erected after the church was burned by 
the Scots. 

The old bells, which have been for some time melted down, 
were six in number, and, according to Mr. Wright, three of 
them bore the date 1404, St. Mary's bell was the largest, 
weighing as much as 70 cwt. It was called the fray bell, and 
was rung specially when there was an alarm, particularly of a 
foray or inroad. Ita last peal was at the marriage of Sir 
William Blackett, when it was cracked by the boisteraus 
demonstrations of the ringers. St. Audrew^s hell, the next in 
size, was rtmg at f«iieraU, and was called the haly or Iioly bell.

It may here be observed that the roofs of both the choir 
idid transept were formerly covered with lead, and that on its 
being Bmelted, a quantity of silver was obtained from that 
which waa taken from the choir. 

Interior of the Church. — On entering the choir, we 
infer by comparison of the sections of mouldings, and other 
detail, that the south side ia probably a little earlier in date 
than the other. The five columns which divide it from the 
aislea on each side all stand on rectangnlar baaes, a.nd arc com- 
posed of eight members or shafts, not rounded, but shaped in 
section like the end of a lance. On the south side, all the 
capitals are quite plain, hut on the north, foliage of an incipient 
character ia introduced. The eastern rpspondsj indeed, judging 
from the modem edition of them, must have been of tran- 
sitional Norman character, ^' The originals are said to have 
been more spirited." On both sides the abacus ia rectangular 
over those shafts of the pillars which face the cardinal points of

the compasa, but, over those that intervene, it follows tlicir 
pomtcd scctiou. The mouldings of the archivolts, which tbese 
pillars Bupportj are boH and well eomposcdj but their arrange- 
ment, on the south side, differs a little from that on the north, 
and it has also a serrated, instead of the plain hood moulding 
wLicli occurs on the opposite side. 

The triformm — stroagly savouriug of Norman influence, 
both iu the genera! design and the large space which it occupies 
between the arcade and the clerestory — eoutrihutes to this part 
of the church a dignified and powei-fiil effect, not unheeded by 
the huUderg of the transept at an advanced period, when a 
modified form of it might otherwise have been introduced. It 
is divideil, on both aides, into hays hj triple shafts resting on 
semi-cylindrical bases, with something like three nail heads 
projecting from the face of each ; and these again are suppoi-ted 
by floi'ifttod brackets, the string course intervening. The 
mouldiugs of the semi-circular arches, very little inferior io 
span to those of the ai-cade below, riae from two cylindrical 
shafts in the splay and two in the soffit, corresponding with the 
two shafts, jflaced one behind the other, which carry the two 
pointed sub-arches; between which a sunken quatrefoil appears 
in the apandril. On the uorth side there is no decoration 
attempted, except the naU-head ornament in one member of 
the arch, common to both aides, — and iu the last bay westward, 
where the angle flanking the nook shaft is oiiiameuted with 
dog-tooth work; a treatment which obtains tbi-onghont the 
southern triforium, 

Both sides of the choir are lighted alike with plain lancet 
lights on a nail-headed string course passing over the dividing 
Taultiujj shafts, each light appearing in the middle of an arcade 
of three raeinbera. It is s.up[iorted by shafts tripled at the 
level of the head of the pathway which passes over the sill, hut 
single from that point to tlie springing of the head of the 
window. There are consequently two seta of capitals. Bcloir 
the point of springing, the jamb of the window is splayed or

shoulilered, so as to form a trefoil head towarda the interior, 
and to admit more light. 

The east end having been rebuilt needs no other comment 
than that it is of a more advanced character than the lateral 
walls, aud appears to have been compiled from various portions 
of the church, vrithout observing the difl'erent sttiges of develop- 
ment which it presents. As the modem character of the work 
is obviouH to the most careless obaerver, no sncb misconception 
can arise as must be caused by the prolongation, at the same 
period, of the nook shal'ts at the west angles of the chair, which 
were formerly pendentive, and the introduction of the wall 
oriiitment, which occurs only in the latest portion of the church, 
in the north transept. The reredoa behind the altar seems to 
have been suggested from the arcade of the aisle of that portion 
of the church. It is composed of seven trefoil-headed. archeSj 
supported hj shafts, except the central one, which rises in a 
cm-vilinear direction from the wall, without the interposition of 
either capital or bracket ! 

The aisles of the choir have single lancet lights, enclosed 
within a moidded head, supported by cylindrical shafts-, with 
capitala of tranaitionaJ Norman feeling, and a rectangular 
abacus. Thej stand on a bold string course. Both aisles are 
vaulted with stone, supported by pendentive shafts, which varyj 
in section on the respective sides. In the diagonal ribs of the 
groining a large between two smaller reeda appears; in the 
transverse rih^ they are of equal size. The bosses are adorned 
with foliage. In the third bay from the east, on the south side, 
ia a doorway inserted, in the Decorated period, hut now walled 
up, with a trefoil-headed piscina on its west side. Each aisle, 
no douhtj had its altar at the east end, with the necessary 
appendages, but as the bay in which they would have been 
enclosed has been rebuilt, we find no other indication than a 
large locker on each side, the heads of which, however, from 
some whim, not to be explained, were changed in that work 
from the flat to the semi-circular form.

Towards the cloee of the fifteenth century, while Ko'wland 
Lescliman and Ttcunas Smitheou eat in the Prior's stall, the 
whole of tte woodwork of the church seeniB to have been 
renewed, including the roofa of the choir and transept. After 
the Refoxraationj time and neglect wrought their usual effect's 
upon it, though probably some definite idea of the general 
nature of the arrangementB might have been still obtained htid 
not the recent alterations swept away all that reeted on the 
floor, except the rood-screen, and left it only for the student 
to examine the ruin in tragments. This screen, — certainly 
one of the most singular and interesting eomhirkations of 
eandng and painting in the idBgdom, — stands betweea the 
eastern piers of the central tower, and projects or cavea over, 
both to the east and west^ for the salse of obtaining greater 
space in the loft; forming thus on the east aide a continuous 
canopy for the stalls. On this side, the screen shews only a 
panelled front on each side of the central doorway, and appears. 
to have been *' restored." In front, over the entrance, projects 
a ae mi-octagonal jube, the panela of which and the rest of the 
loft, sixteen in number, are each painted with the figure of a 
Saint, archbishop, or bishop, but I could not distinguish their 
particular characteristics from the floor. Being not immediately 
accessible, they remain in a good state of preservation, hut 
require cleaning to bring out the detEul." In the heads of the 
pointed doorways iu the sides of the porch, are two large 
picturea, one of the Salutation and the other of the Annuncia- 
tion of the Blessed Virgin. The west side of the vertical part 
of the screen under the loft ia divided into three bays, the 
central one being occupied by the doorway. The lower portion 
of the rest eihibit a row of sbtteen panela, each containing the 
picture of a mitred personage, — some of them nimhcd, — and 
about 2 feet 4 inches high. A few of their uamea are painted 
on them, but the light ia seldom sufficiently powerful to

coloured in coutraat, red and green, the face of the ribs having 
been originally gilded. The fi-ont of the loft stands upon a 
cornice, in the concavity of ivhich are inserted, along with 
yuatrefoila and roses, the following letters, each with contrac- 
tions, or letters entwined, forming a monogram of a whole word^

According to a plan of the pews taken in the year 1830, it 
appears that there ivere four stalls oil eairli side of the west eud 
of the ehoLP, fourteen on the north side and sixteen on tlie 
aouthj but both series terminated at the same point eastward; 
though, on the north aide, two stalls were included witliin. the 
tliird intercolumniation from the west, hut three witliin the 
same space on tlie opposite side. Thirteen of these stalls are 
now placed at the eastern extremity of each aisle of the choir, 
hut they have no tabernacled heads or canopiesj and, judging 
from the plain surface of the elbows or divisions hetwccn each, 
it does not appear that they originally had such a protection. 
It may have been that they had a panelled screen behindj some- 
thing like the blank tracery workj with a coved ceiling of fan 
traeepy projecting, like that on the weat aide of the rood-screen ; 
but the hcada of the west stalls hare been, so mangled that tliis 
is little more than conjecture. The miaerereB do not attain the 
general iutereat of that class of objects, being chiefly foliage, 
though one bears the figure of a bird which liaa been supposed 
to be a memorial of Edward Jay, the last Prior. The font 
formerly stood immediately in front of the northern groups of 
the wcatern stalls. 

Of the lattices or screens which dinded the main hody of 
the choir from Its aisles, not one now remains in position. 
Probably they exhibited such flaraboyaot tracery as still happily 
remains on the west side of the rood screen, combined with the 
pictured panels whieh hfiye been, and with others that wiU be 
hereafter, alladed to. Some fragments of them, which are 
still preservedj must evoke as high an admiration of the skill 
and piety of those who produced tlicm, as of the opposite 
feeling towards those who destroyed the worts of men into 
whose minds they eonld not enter. 

Before the late "restoration," the sedilia stood under the 
easternmost hay of the choir, on the south side. They joined 
the wall at the east end, and left a passage between the opjx)site 
end and the pillar, not being wide enough to fill the spiu^.

crest-work, engraved at p. clsiii of the Preface of Vol. I,, 
bearing the same shield in connexion with an eagle, was taken 
from the fi-ont of a gallery above the objeet now under descrip- 
tion, but whether it originally formed part of it I have not 
ascertained. Each of the seatB was originally surmomited by a 
Bema-sexagonal canopy, divided from each other by a tall pin- 
nacle which rose from the hinder part of the partition, and 
ceiled with fan tracery, now mutilated, except the bosses, in 
which are introduced two human faces and as many roses. 
Until recently, the sedilia were occupied by the churchwardens. 
Considering the limited space that could be allotted to pri- 
vate altare, iu consequence of the absence of a nave, there 
were probably several screens passing transversely across the 
aislea of the choir, leaving only a processional path between 
them and the wall. Two chapels indeed remained in a tolerable 
state of preaervation until the recent period to which we are 
compelled eo often to allude ; when one was mangled and re- 
moved to another part of the church, and the other waa wan- 
tonly torn in pieces and dispersed, as "old materials," I 
prefer, however, to describe them here in conncsJon with their 
original sites, that the reader may be in some degree enabled 
to recall those ancient associations of the choir wLlcb camiot 
now be enjoyed within its walls. The large&t and moet iute-

resting of these encloguies stood on the north aisle of the choir, 
TcitKiu the aecond bay from the east endj and was popiilarly 
called " Prior Richard's shrine," Whether this appellation had 
its origin before the Eeformationj in coimesion -with a recorded 
fact or tradition that this celebrated member of the house was 
interred in this particular sp&t, or -waa aBsociated otherwise with 
it, will probably never be ascertained. Certain only it is, from 
the late presence of the initials of Prior Rowland Leechman on 
the roof, that it was erected by him, either as a chantry chapel 
of his own foim.dation, — for which I am not aware that the 
reqijisite licence remains on the Patent Rolls, — or as a recon- 
struction of some pre\'ious enclosure connected with Prior 
Bichard] which obtained, therefore, especial attention from 
Leschman when he renewed the woodwork of the choir, and 
which received his mark, like other parts of the fahricj in token 
that — " This made Leschman." The chapel filled the whole 
intercolumniatiou, and projected on the south side beyond the 
biLses of the pillars, having an entrance from the choir at the 
cast part of this front, which was stopped up within memory, 
when another entrance was made irom the aisle, at the east 
end. It did not free the aisle, but a passage occurred between 
it and the wall. As it now stands in the aisle of the south 
tranacpt, the " shrine" raeaBurea 13 feet 6 inches long on the 
BOutb aide, II feet on the north, and is 11 feet 6 inches high, 
and upwards of 6 feet wide ; but how far the sides retain their 
original proportions and respective positions I am not clearly 
informed. I note this only, that in a plate of the shrine which 
may be found in Wright's History of Hexham, p. 78, the base 
of what is called there the south front is now the north front, 
with a doorway at the eastern extremity of it, of which there 
are no traces at present. The plate, however, in other respects, 
is extremely inaccurate. In an architectural point of vicw^ the 
work is of a very debased character, though some portions of 
the flalahoyant tracery of the lattices are beautifully designed.

as regards the fii-st four spaces from the west, — for the rest ai-e 
smaller, — sit a aeries of luue grotesque figures, having the effect 
of supporting the Buperstructure. The tirst is a grim-lookiug 
lion : the second repreacnts a fellow with a rude smirk of aatig- 
fection on his countenance, plajing the bagpipes : the third, a 
fox in a pulpit, caped and hooded, preaching tofourgeeae cleverly 
grouped helow : the fourth, a man sitting on a low stool playing 
on a harp : the fifth, a rude representation of a man with three 
faces, — the middle one the largest^- — hut with little or no body, 
in a fitting posture, apparently on a eouchant animal : the SliLth, 
a man sitting on the ground in a crouchmg posture, the relative 
position of his heiLd and arnia to his body passing all description 
by the pen, hut affording an excellent material embodiment of 
the nightmare : the seventh, a man aitting on the ground with a 
small animal iu hia hands, and wearing a long cap with a t&ssel 
at the top tumcd over on one side ; the eighth, a. woman sitting 
on the ground holding an unintelligible object, rescmbbng dra- 
pery, over her head, the nude arm presented towards the spec- 
tator, exposing the shoulder, below which the dress is rolled up 
in the shape of a wreath or forae : the ninth, a nondescript 
monster, like those fouud in Norman work, and prohably 
copied from such. Immediately above this curious basement is 
a fillet of foliage, not, as usual, interlacing or miuiiug hori- 
zoutally, but every leaf, like those of the aspen poplar, risea 
vertically from a stem passing in a wavy direction from end to 
end. Above this courae is the chief member of the design. It 
is divided into eight panels by moulded vertical projections of 
conaidcrahle auhatance resting on corheia or baseB, not bevelled 
or splayed at the under surfaee^ hut projecting and disengaged 
horizontally as far as the heada of the suppoi-ting figures I have

as the bases. The panels thus uuehisfld are Etjiiare-headed, but 
not of ecjual width, and though their inner hcails are of a trefoil 
bhape, tbey aTe all detailed differently. Tbc fii*6t subject, pass- 
ing friom the wi;3t end, re^jTesents St. George slaying the

witb foliage : the third, the Ancient of Days with streaming hair, 
crowned, holding onr Blesaed Saviour in a most uingnlai" pos-

another, twisted into the form of a. loacngc-shaped wreath or 
toree, the apex being collected into the semblance of a trefoil : 
the fifthj an ape sitting on a. curiously shaped etool with one 
paw resting on his knee, and the other applied to his mouth : 
the sisth, the lily, with foliage aynibolical of the Blessed Vire^n^ 
rising frooi a T^Ae, with a siugLe handle and epout, precisely 
resembling a modem, pitcher ; the seventh, a tonsured front- 
faced figure, holding an unintelligible object in his right hand : 
the eighth, a front-faced figure in a go\m, with no particular 
eharaeteristie. Above these panels is a bold embattled cornice, 
not less tlum a foot deep. The present nortliem basement is 
much plainer in character, though equally singular in its design 
as the one just described. Upon plain masonry, 18 inches 
high, 13 a deeply recessed arcade of eight members, excludiug the 
half panels at each end. The dividing ribs are flat and rudely 
moulded with semi-circular moulded bases but rectangular 
capitals merely chamfered. In the heud of each arcade is a 
compressed trefoil, enclosed unskilfully under a cinquefoil, thus 
giving the effect of a cornice without its projection; the lower 
part is filled with a trefoil -headed arch -with a plain ogee canopy, 
the tops decorated with a series of heads of men and animals. 
It ia to be remarked in connexion with an object shortly to be 
desenbed, that the pilaster which bounds the east etid of this 
northbm basement is ornamented with a piuiel defined by 
incised hues with a semicij-cular head. If this aide did actually 
face the choir when it stood in its origuial position, this pilaster

must liave formed one jamb of the doorway aa clepicted iu 
Wrighfs platCj and the upper portion of the ■Compartment in 
which the door waa placed must have been destrojed at the 
time of the "Restoration," thus causing the present disparity 
in the length of the aides. Upon tliis basement, on each side, 
stands a wooden lattice or Bcreen of more than equal lieight, 
that on. the north remaining the most perfect. It ia now mtide 
into six vertical diviaiona by panelled shafts decorated with 
hlank tracery, resting on brackets, in the form of bewls. Each 
of these ogce-hcaded spaces was divided by a mullioDj enriched 
in tlie hollows with quatrefoils, into two eemieircular-headed 
openings, not foiled j the space between and the cornice being 
filled with delicate flamboyant tracery. There is a flat booi'ded 
ceiling over the chapel, originally ribbed, but all the membcja 
Lave been destroyed, and now only one perfect centre boss 
remains, decorated with a red rose, with seven half bosses at the 
sides, and two comer bosses, all representing well designed 
fohagej and painted, Mr, Fairlcea fortunately possesses a cast 
of One of the centre bosses which assigns the erection of the 
shrine to Prior Leschman. It bears the device of an augel 
holding a shield, charged with the letters V and [ iu saltire, 
their disposition having been perhaps suggested by St. Andrew's 
cross.'' The same idea may have croaaed the fancy of the 
designer of that elegant piece of woodwork, engraved at the 
176th page of the Preface to "The Priory of Hexham/' where 
two objects, supposed to represent barbed arrows, are placed in 
saltire with an R above and an L below the point of intersec- 
tion, not improbably allusive to some trade or occupation in 
life from which the surname of the Prior was derived. Mr. 
"Wright, in his History, published in the year 1833, says that 
the " north side and west end of the shrine are entirely de- 
stroyed j" but, in the flrst instance, he can mean no more than 
that the wooden lattice had been much despoiled, as ia now the 
ease on the aonth side.

At the east end of thia chapel — where it was placed before 
its removal from the choir — is a remarkable stone altar, occupy- 
ing its entire width of 5 feet 3 inches, and 4 feet 4 inches high, 
the cover or slab being slightly chamfered, and bearing- the five 
crosses. On the north side of the Tcrtical face is a square- 
headed openingj 1 foot lOJ inches high, and 9^ inches wide, 
continued through the whole substance of the altar, and pro- 
bably once used as a place of deposit for the sacred utenails. 
On each aide of tlie aperture is a sculptured pauelj the other 
exposed side of the atone formiug part of the inner face of the 
opening, having another panel of like chuacter. That on the 
north side contains a most archaic -looiirig Sason acrollj copied, 
no doubt, from one existing at the time in the Priory, facing 
the spectator ; and, inside the recess, an ape sitting. Opposite 
to it is a hare squatting under foliage ; and, outside, the eame 
stone presents a pilgriiQj with hi* gtaffj wearing a wallet and 
Cap, both with the badge of the escallop shell. lu " the dork 
ages" of English archEeologj) Mr. Hutchinson^ sagely con- 
jectured these figures to be of Roman workmanship, the ape 
representing Silemia and the pilgrim Jupiter : but they are 
obviously of the same date as the rest of the chapel, and pre- 
cisely of the same character as those found on its south side. 

The wKole space between the altar slab and the roof of the 
chapel is occupied by a piece of wainscot, 7 feet high. The lower 
panel, filUng the whole width, contains a singular painting, not 
to be properly viewed witliout artificial light, hut which Mr. 
Wright in his History saya "represented the sufferings oi 
Christ. The Saviour in the centre, his hands crossed before 
him and tied, crowned with thoma, etc. ; on his right hand 
cords and scourges are cross-tied to a tree ; above are thii'ty 
pieces of silver. lu the foreground a figure like a monk in the 
attitude of prayer (not iiuprobglily intended to represent Prior 
Leschman) holds a conspicuous etation. On the ground are 
pincers, etc. On the left hand of the Saviour the garments

are senttercd over the wliole piece,'*' On three npright panels 
above is a figure of St. Andrew, between St. Peter on one side 
and St. Paul on the other, hut much obscured by time and 
ne^jlect. 

There is now placed within this chapel a low altar tomh — 
of the latter part of the fifteenth century — 5 feet long and 2 
feet 5 inchea wide, which, previous to its removal at the late 
"restoration," iit&yd against the wall, towards the eastern 
auglc of the north side of the choir. The base and eomice 
wliich support the cover have simple niouldinge, and there is 
no other feature about it, except that at the west end of the 
Buuth Bide is an armoiiail shield, bearing the letters R. L. in 
saltirCj and most probably appropriating this as the tomb of 
Prior Lesobman. A3 it has neither base uOr Cornice on the 
south aide, we may conclude that the end which now faces the 
west, at that time was turned towards the east. 

Upon this tomb rests the mouumeutal effigy traditionally 
aaid to represent " Prior Richard." In Wright's plate of " the 
Shi*ine" (History, p. 78) this figure is shewn lying in front of 
it, on the south side, and on a alah, which never could have 
been intended to represent the tomb just described; and in a 
plan of the pews, taken in 1830, it ia introduced on the same 
Bite; but I have been told that some time after, when the choir 
was re-pewed, it was removed and placed upon the monument 
ou which it now rests, When Hutchinson ■»-iBlted Heihamj 
in 1776, it would appear that both the monuments were 
placed aa they are now. "Within the choir," he writes, "is 
the recumbent effigy of an eccleaiastio, hooded, on a table 
monument of black marble (wliich the present is wot) in relief;

blematical device to denote mortaiityj being the rescTnljlauce of

of Prior Richard, an historian of the twelfth century. The 
device on the shicldj if it is preaumed to be the tomh of Richard, 
will then appear to he the letters r i placed one over the other.'" 
But, whatever changes may have been made in the relative 
positions of these monuments, it appears evident to me, unless 
the work had been erected, at first, in a, moat unusual and un- 
skilful maimer, that the eflBgy never formed any portion of the 
altar tomb onginally; for not only is the latter complete in all 
its component parts, and properly flnighed by the slab above the 
cornice, but the lower surface of the slab on which the effigy 
rests is disproportionately larger than the upper Eiirfac'e of the 
tomb, and has its own proper cornice and set of mouldings, 
of a more ornamental character, around its aides and end; 
whereas the altar-tomb has been originally placed against a 
wall, and on that side ia wholly unadorned. It is. to be ob- 
served that the crenellated portion of the moulding around the 
bed of the effigy appears only on the west and south sides, 
Buggeating the idea that thc&e were the portions of it originally 
the most exposed to ■view. Mr. Wright, speaking of tliia efSgy, 
says (p. 90), ia the year 1833 it stood ■" exactly in front of the 
shrine on the north side of the centre aisle of the choir, Tfiia 
was not ita oriffinal situation. It uow covers another tomb, on 
which it reeta, and this impropriety of place has caused much 
confusion in the accounts respecting it." Unless, also, " the re- 
cumbent effigy of an ecclesiastic hooded," whi&h Mr. Hutchinson 
saw, " immediately adjoining" the shrine, was one which is now 
destroyed, — a thing extremely improbable,— -he must have seen 
the figure now under consideration in a detached form. For in 
speaking of the tomb at the we^t end of the north aisle of the 
choir, then presumed to he that of Alfwold, king of North- 
umberland, he aaya, " I measured an e^gy which (aye near ih'ia 
tomb, aud found it answenTig exactly in length. Tfie tffiifj/

represents an ecclesiastic vnth lii» hood ihroum back to his fore- 
head, his haud$ elevated, and robed to the feet; the folds of 
the drapery thrown into excellent order, easy and ele-gant." 
Whether Mr. Hutcbinson has fallen into confusion in making 
the two statements I have quoted or not, he evidently had 
considered that the effigy last mentionedj which corresponds 
exactly with that now under review, was not then placed iu its 
original position. 

There stood "near the altar" in the year 1776, and until 
recently, an uncouth statue of a man in an erect posture, about 
3 feet 8 inches high, now removed into the aisle of the north 
tranBcpt. He is represented as wearing a long coat, buttoned 
in front firom the neck to the waist, having three coils or clumsy 
ligatures of what may have been intended for hay or straw 
hand rouud his ancles ; and he holds e)'ect vitli both hands a staff 
or club as tall as hioiaelfj expanding- to a large knot at the 
upper end. His cap is like that which appears on one of the 
figures on the south side of the chapel just described. The 
stone out of which the figure is carved is i-ough and undressed 
on its right hand side, as if that part had jutued a wall or other 
masonry. The opposite side retains two iron hooks, the points 
of each beut in a different direction, and is ornamented with an 
incised panel nith a aemi-circul ar head of precisely similar 
design to that which — aa previously alluded to — appears on 
what waa once the eastern jamb of the doorway leading into 
this chapel; suggesting the idea that this figure may have been 
connected with the eastern end of that enclosure, wliich has 
been long since removed. Mr. Pennant, in hia Tour in Scotland, 
made in the year 1772, in allusion to this statue, says, "Against 
a pillar is a ridiculous figure of a bai'efooted mau with a great 
club : perhaps a pilgrira." Upon which Mr. Hutchinson, four 
years after, remarks, " It in nowise represents a pilgrim ; he 
carries no scrip, and weart* a cap or helmet ;" and afterwards 
says, " This, I apprehend, is the figure of Pan. It is reason- 
able to conjecture that they," — that is, this and the figures iu

the Sasoii crypt, — ""were obtained/' Mr. Wriglit, while per- 
ceiving the " evident identity "" of the fign^re " with the other 
sculptures of the shrine/' ttinka it was "intended to represent 
an offieer of justice, with his staff and plume, his feet bftred 
and manacled, to ebeiv that within the bounds of sanctuary Le 
dared not move towards hia design, and that there his authority 
availed him not. This figure is placed within a short distance 
of the stool of peace." 

Beyond the highest limit to which living memory can 
extend, and moat probably for sis centurieB more, tliat most 
venerable monument of antiquity, the weU-known Frith-stool 
of Hesham, used before the Reformation for the unasaadabla 
security of persons seeking the sanctuary of the church, 
occnpicd a position immediately in front of the last pillar, east- 
ward, on the north aide of the choir, its face being' turned 
towards tte south. Soon after the year 1830, however^ when 
the cburch was re-pewed, neither the unusual local intereet 
wliich attached to it, nor the fact of its being an almost unique 
example of its kiad, could preserve it from removal into the 
north aiale, immediately behind the pillar in front of which it 
had previously stood. Hence it was again recently removed, 
and placed, where it now stauda, in the aisle of tlie south 
transept, at the angle of its junction with the contiguous, aisle 
of the choir. At some distance it has the appearance of a 
cnbical block of atone, out of which a seat has been heivn ; but, 
on closer examination, it will be found to be composed of the 
stone which contains the sedile, of very close grit, and three 
stones below of somewhat eofirser material. The whole block 
is 2 feet 74 inches long, 1 foot 9 inches wide, or firom back to 
front, and 1 foot LO inches high. The plan or section of the 
seat resembles the vertical elevation of an elliptically- headed 
areb. The upper surface, on which the elbows of a person sit- 
ting in the chair would rest, is decorated, on each side, by an

According to a plate shewing the horizontal and Tcrtical faces 
of the Frith-stool, in the Sancttmrium Dwiielmense et Sanc- 
tuanum Beverlacense, published by tlie Surtees Society in the 
year 1837", it appears that either then, or at some previous 
period TV-lien the drawing was made, a large concave moulding 
or cornice intervened between the sedile and its base, apparently 
of Perpendiculaj or Tudor character, and the base appears to 
have been formed of one stone. Be ttia as it nsayj I think it 
is questionable ivhethcr, in the original design, the lines of the 
ornamentation in front were not prolonged into another vertical 
stone below and returned at its base. I may remark here, 
more for the aake of fiiture enquiry tlian otherwiae, that ou the

this is the cathedra of the Saxon bifihopa of Hexham.' 

Until the recent " re eto ration,-" a couaiderable space below 
the third arch from the last, on the south aide of the choir, 
was occupied by a chantry chapel, whicli was always kiLown by 
tha name of " the Lord of the Manor's pew/' until the dis- 
covery of the armorial cresceuta of the Oyle family upon it 
gave it the name of "the Og!c ghrine." From a drawing 
of It, made by Mr. Fairlesa, before it was riithlcByly destroyed, 
it appears that it was of the same Tudor atyle as charac- 
tenaed the rest of the old woodwork of the choir. The eleva- 
tion OB the north side remained much less perfect than on. the 
Kouth, but both bad presented a base of sis panels, merely 
divided by strips without tracery, upon -wbich stood as many 
detached shafts with ogee heads and plain tracery in the »pan- 
drila. Above this was a cornice, returned at the wcat end, 
enriched with qnatrrfoils, as were the beam -which divided the 
panplb'd basement from the lattices, and the outer faces of those 
which supported the east end. The 'chapel ia not r&membered 
to have retained its altar, but on etripping off the baize from 
the pew, before its demolition, a fine trypticli which had sur- 
mounted it was discovered; the removal of wldch from the 
ehureli, as " old materials," was the subject of much indignant 
comment in the jnnmals at the time. It is thus described in 
the public prints of the day :— " This interesting relie," says 
the writer, "is a tryptich of the fifteenth century. It has a 
massive frame of oak, 4 feet 3 inches by 6 feet 6 inches, of the 
same character of moidding and carving as the aereenwork 
empaling the shnnc. The three panels of the picture arc of an 
uniform size — 1 foot 10 iuches by 3 feet 8 inches, and the sub- 
jects in each are confined within, an outline of a vesica forra, 
and enriched with diapered backgroundp. The centre compart- 
ment represents Christ in the act of rising from the tomb, the

tlie Virgin holding the Infant Christ on one arm, and a sceptre, 
annotmeing her sovereignty aa Queen of Heaven, in the other 
hand. The nimbus of this figure is also in high relief, and is 
more elaborate in design than that upon the head of Christ. A 
raised nimbus surrounds the head of the Infant, and the eccptre 
is richly ornamented in relief. The robe of the Virgin is of a 
crimson colour, and has a small geometrical pattern upon it. 
It is fastened upon the breast with a row of embossed eiasp 
ornaments. Over the armj on which she holds the Cliildj and 
below her M-aist, falls a piece of amber-toned drapery covered 
with fleure-de-lys. Thia figure is siirrounded by a double border

moiiUled styles, wreathed with labels of divers colours, but 
apparently without inscriptions. It ia of the same date as the 
rest of the ancieiLt woodwork of the choir, and lias been painted 
ttrougliout, like the coseval rood-screen. Each panel contains 
a full-length figure of a Sainted personage, about two feet high. 
Some of them, have been designated by inscriptions, as in the 
unneceasary instance of St. Peter, but they are all nearly worn 
out, or so obscured, like the symbols which many of the figures 
bear, as to be illegible, witliont cleaning or the application of a. 
powerful artificial light. Like the other paintings I have pre- 
viously mentioned, and others about to be described, tbelr 
execution is not of mder character than might be expected fi'oin 
their age ; but they appear to me to be of considerable value 
for the illustration of English art, particularly as praetised in 
tte religiouH houses, at the close of tbe fifteenth century. For 
although, it is hardly within the verge of probability that they 
may not have been produced by English artists, or independent 
of any foreign feeling, still at least it is infinitely more probable 
ttat this should he so in tbe ease of a large seriea of bulky 
objects of this connected character, than in that of many de- 
taehed and portable pictures of a aimilar date, of the purpose 
and origin of which we can know nothing, neither whence they 
may have been imported. The panel in front of the de 
represents our Blessed Lord holding a croas and pendent' 
strcamerj and elevating His hand in the act of benediction. 
The nest to it, on the north, has a pictiu-e of the Virgin Mary 
with our Saviour in her arms. The interstices between the 
tracery of all tbe panels have been coloured alternately red and 
green, like similar work on the rood-screen. 

At the time when Mr, Hodgson wrote, there were placed 
"over the Litany desk full-length portraits of the Saints 
Wilfirid, Jolm of Beverley, Aeea, Fiidbert, Gilfrid, Alcmund, 
and Eata, with this inscription above their beads, ' Ftmdatofeg, 
hujtis loci.' " I presume Hutchinson" had previously alluded

to tlicBO pictures when he indulged iu the singular observation, 
" TliErc are some grirn and lion-iikc Saints painted in tLc aisles, 
among whom stands St. John of Beverley, of hideous aspeot." 
Mr. "Wright* says that, in the year 1823j they were "more 
advantageously disposed above the screen." Bccently, they 
have been placed — for they are iin two divisions — iu what we 
hope is only a temporary position, one reared before the other, 
at the west side of the north tranBept, where the foremost of 
them can only be conveniently examiuedj though probably they 
are objects unique of their kind. It is a wooden tablet between 
eight and nine feet square^ framed of oak boards, enclosed ou 
the aides and at the top in a frame, of which the concave 
moulding, inclining inwards, ia enriched with quatrcfoilsj whilst 
at the front of it is a sleuder pinnacled buttresBj to which a 
lower one of "flying" character ia attached. The superficial 
surface is occupied throughout by a very curious paintiagj 
divided by pitmacled and staged buttress strips or etylea into 
four corapartuieiits, each 4 feet 9 inches high and 1 foot 10 
inches wide, and surmounted hy a light and elegant &emi- 
hexagonal ogee-headed canopy of wood, the fiidal of which rises 
to the upper cornice or frame of the tablet. The subjects 
below, executed in the time of King Henry VII., and in excel- 
lent state of presen-ation as regards desigu and colour, represent 
four full-length figures of aa many bishops of Hexham. The 
first, mitred and nimbed, wearing the pall and holding a crosier 
or cross staff, may be supposed to represent St. Wilfrid. The 
refit are nimbed and all bear staves, hut the heads are not 
clearly discernible thi'ongh the coating of dirt. I was itifoimed 
that the spandrila between the heads of the canopies contain 
the armorial insignia usually assigned in the middle ages to the 
prelates represented below, and that the name of each waa 
inscribed below t!ie bracket, at hia feet, but the imperfect light 
which reaches thh part of the church did not enable mc to trace 
the one, nor the position of the tablet to sec the other. These

brackets are of «emi-octagooal form, and of Bimilar width and 
pTOJection as the canopiea above, and perhap3j on particular 
occafiioiu, may have supported lights. Behind this tablet is 
placed another of precisely similar design, but of three com- 
partmcnta only. In tlicir original poaition, they do not seem 
to have been joined closely together, bo as to form a eoutinuous 
subject ; for the outer transverse face of each side of the frames 
is orDamented with the quatrefoil moulding ; a fact which also 
BUggeets that they have been placed, at first, like ordinary 
pictures^ agaiiiat the face of a wall, and not inserted between 
pillars or other masonry ; in which case the outer margin would 
have been left plain, to join the stonework, Mr. Fairlcsa wae 
told, long ago, by an old man whose recollection extended 
beyond the period when Hutchinson wrote, that he remem- 
berod the^e pictures to have stood near the east end of the 
choir. It is a somewhat singular circumatance with reference to 
the period when they were executed, and the church where they 
were exhibited, that, at the very time, Huby, abhat of Foun- 
tains, in rebuilding a portion of the church which had been 
erected hy the founder of Hexham at Ripon, introduced aeeries 
of inscriptions comuisnioratiiig the sainted persona who had 
been monks in that monastery in Saxon times, — St. Cuthbert, 
St. Eata, St. Wilfrid, and St. Willebrord, two of whom are 
depicted in these tablets at Hexham. 

The whole of the ancient sepulchral monuments in the choir, 
whether raised above the floor or forming a portion of it, have 
been either ruthlessly destroyed, or removed to another part of 
the church. Mr. Wallis,'' speaking of this church in his Anti- 
quities of Northumberland, published in 1769, observes, " The 
floor is mostly covered with ancient gravestones. Many have 
been inlaid with brass, and othera with croziers. They are very 
entire after they have been trod underfoot for ao many ages ;" 
and Mr. Wright,' even bo recently as the year 1823, tells us 
that "the floor of the ehui-ch is flagged with stones, at one

time nearly all moDumental, Plat coffin-shaped stoaea laid 
even with the paTemeut, on which were simply inscribed the 
name and rank of the person buried, are the moat ancient 
funeral monnmcntB foundwithin our churches, and these appear 
to have been numerous in Hexham j but whpt remains of them 
amouuts to little more than nothing." The " oldest" of theacj 
as he conjectured, waa then " viaible in the floor of b pewj at a 
short distance from the organ loft, raised a little from the 
common floor— long, flatj and cofQu-shapedj in length 6 feet, 
in breadth 2^ feet, divided longitudinallj by a deep cut. On 
the left side of this division is a cross fleury -withgut a shield, 
horder, or any ornament. The inscription is between two amoll 
croaBcs in one line along the opposite eide of the division^ and 
announces aimply that + JOH'3. MALeRBe JACGT HIC." 
This stone is now placed in the al&le of the north transept. 
Mr. AV right goes on to say, " In the south aiale of the choir 
aa-e two table monuments. From one the effigy has been re- 
moved ; and on the other ia the recumbent figure of a knight of 
the holy banner — supposed to be a member of the baronial 
family of Umframville." When Dr, Johnston of Pontefract 
visited Hexham, about two hundred years ago, he found this 
monument ia tlie same aisle, so that probably this was its 
original position, According to Hutchinson-'s account, the 
particular spot where it stood was a little above the inlaid slab 
of Sir Robert Ogle. It is now laid, without any base of 
masonry, in the aisle of the north transept. The head of the 
effig'y rests on two cuahionSj the one placed like a lozenge on a 
square, without supporters. The lower part of the crossed legs 
is broken ofl', and there is no trace of an animal or other object 
againat which they may have rested; in fact the requisite space 
does not seem to he afforded. There is nothing peculiar ahout 
the costume, which eshibita a suite of link mail, partially covered 
with a sleeveless surcoat strapped round the waist. The sword 
is suspended from an undeeorated belt, and the shield, which 
has a narrow gdigc, is charged, in reli&f, with a cinqucfoil, 6ur-

rounded by a niimbor of crosses much batterer!, hut it is to be 
remarked tliat oiiewhich remains uninjured is not a cross croas- 
hi, ae aubsequently "borne in the arms of Umfreville, but a. 
cross jiatee. In Ralph Brooke's" Catalogue and Succession, 
etc., he blazons the arma of Gilbert llinfre\illc, earl of 
Angus, lord of Prudhoc, Ottcrbumc, Harbotle, and Redesdale, 
whom this effigy probably commemorates, "Gueulles a une 
quinkfoUe, & le chamjje croise le patee d'or;" and iu a Roll of 
Arms, of the time of Edward tlie Tliirdj " Le Contc de Angcsse 
jiorte de gonlcB ove irn quintefoil d'or et croiesletz d'or." The 
eiBgy rests on a slab, the chamfer of which ia decorated on the 
south or right side with two semi-glohular objects at the upper, 
and two at the lower end, hut so much worn down as not to be 
positively identified with the " ball flower ornament," At the 
Cast end of it is the crouching tigure of a dog ; the rest of the 
deeign, if any, being lost, through a comer of the slab having 
been broken oflF. On the chamfer, at the head of the stone, are 
three objects, but only one, apparently a dog with something 
before its month, is tolerably well defined. In a particular 
light, another seems like a squirrel with a sprig of foliage. On 
that on the left-hand side of the figure are three auiraaU, pro- 
bably dogs or wolves — for their present situation close to the 
wall of the aisle forbida an accurate examination by the eye. 
This chamfered slab rests on another boldly embattled, but at 
the headj foot, and right side only^ as if the figure had originally 
been placed against &ome object on the north side. It is, I 
think, extremely probable that these auimale introduced on the 
chamfer may have allusion to a very peculiar tenure, by wbich 
the Umfrevillca held lands, in grand scrjcanty, of the Crown. 
Madoi in his Bai-ouia Anglica, p. 244, says that the eastle of 
Harbotle and the manor of Ottcrburue were held of the king, 
in eapite, by Robert Unifi'e\ille, in 1128, by the service of 
keeping the valley of Redesdale free from wolves and robbers.

still may be seen on the surface of the chamfered bed of the

The vacant table near the tomb of UmfrevUle,^' mentioned 
by Mr, Wrightj Traa supposed by him with great probabiiity to 
have been originally occupied by an " effigy of superior work- 
manship, repreaenting a lady;" which, in his time, was placed 
not faj- from " Prior Riehard'a shrine," but now near the tomb 
of Umfreville, in the north trauBept. The head, which reat4 
upon a. large rectangular cushion without supporters, is attired 
witlt a coverchlef ; tlse chin, neckj and ahouldera hcuig enveloped 
in one of those wimples or gorg-cts which provoked the satirical 
poets of the time of Edward the First. The body ia enveloped 
in a, loose mantle with tight sleeves, drawn np under the arm- 
pits, BO aa to throw the drapery mto very effective folds. The 
feet rest against a mutilated animal, pai'tly environed by the 
skirt of the robe. There are no data which will enable iia to 
conjecture whom the effigy commemoratea. 

Another sepulchral memorial remained in the choir in the 
year 1823 which cannot now be identified. Mr. Wright says, 
" stepping out of the shrine, you tread on a stone sculptured 
into a cross hound with garlands. This is hidden by the pews 
Upon it and about it.^' 

In ooncluding my observations on thia part of the church, I 
may remark that there is suspended, above the former site of 
the shi'ine, part of a helmet, which is traditionally said to have 
been worn by Sir John Fenwick, who waa slain at Maraton Moor,

Dr. Charlton, of Newcastle, has a copper chalice which was 
found, a few years ago, in forming tbe warm air flue in the 
choir. At the end of the Preface to the Mrst Volume there is 
an engraving of a small plate of Bilvec, now in the British 
Museum, which came from thia church. It bears tbe figure of 
a Saint, and Is of a vei^ early date. I have reason to believe 
that many other relics have been discovered within the Priory 
wMch have been, most nnfortunately, diapersed. 

The south wing of the transept Eccms to have been, com- 
menced very soon after the completion of the choir. In conse- 
quence of the passage, which generally occutb in conventual 
churches between the outer end of the traitaept and the chapter 
house, having been included here within it, the last southern 
bay is occupied, in a singular fashion, by a platfonn over the 
vaulting' of the passage, rising as high as the pUlara of the east 
aisle. It is approached at the west end by a wide stone stair- 
case of thirty-two steps, which forma a most picturesque object 
from the opposite extremity of the church, and is protected by 
a parapet wall that does not slope in the usual manner, but 
rises five times vertically, to form horizontal stages, and is

finislicd by a plain coping, with a roll at the apex. Umler tl]( 
ataircaae arc four recesses, or cloeeta; the higlicst aiid largest 
has a Beml-circulax head ; the next one of elliptical form ; those 
of the lowest hciug flat. From the west end of the platform 
access is obtained to a geometrical staircase communicating 
with the contigiioua triforium and clefeetoryj and, tliroogh them, 
with the tower. At the oppoaitc end of it a rudely- formed door- 
way admits ua into a chamber, measuring ahout twelve feet by ten 
feet, -nith a barrel-vault dirided by a single transverse rib. It 
is lighted by two very narrow, eiinare-headed openingSj which 
apparently have never been tilled with glass, unless it hung in 
in a frame upon crooks, which stiil remains in one of the lights. 
It is not kni>wn, traditiouiiUy or otherwise, to what uae it was 
anciently applied; hut it may not be a very improbable con- 
jecture that it waa used as a Hanctuary chamher. 

The introduction of the platform curtails the lower portion 
of the east side of the transept within three haysj wliilst the 
trifarium and clerestory have four. The pillars that divide it 
from the aisle have octagonal hasea, and are formed, like those 
of the choir, of eight members, hut have four semi-oetagona] 
faces with as many tripled ahafta intervening. The capitals 
are merely moulded, and the orders of the arches cbamferedj 
without any ornament whatever. The triforium is of the 
same general design a? that of the choir, but 19 a little more 
advanced in the development of the mouldings, and has only 
one pillar to support the suh-archee ; while, in the arrangement 
of the triple arcades of the clercstoryj a stilted arch in the 
middle supersedes that supported by shaft above shaft. The 
fourth bay of the triforium, snrraountiug the entrance to the 
supposed sanctuary chamber, contains only two plain lancet 
openings. The vaulting shafts dividing the hays, now much 
mutilated, have heeu single cylinders above the level of the 
capitals of the arcade of the triforium, but B-priug from brackets 
in a tripled form below. ^Vliere the string course below the 
triforium joins the pier of the tower, is a fragment of another

■with a square face, but wtether of much higlier antiquity^ or 
the initiation of a work that was iraincdiatcly discoutiriued, 
cannot, perhaps, be determined without the remoTal of the 
whitewash. In the latter case, however, there is no apparent 
reason why it should have heen retained. 

The aisle of this wing of the transept hEia two lancet lights, 
like thoae of the choir, but enriched with a convex moulding 
"between the nook shaft and the glaas. Triple shafts, with a 
fillet in front, resting on moulded bracketsj support the vault- 
ing, which has no bosses at the intersection of the groining 
ribs. The string course on which the windows stand ia not 
prolonged from that of the contiguous aisle of the choir, but 
commences, as the other ends, abruptly at the angle, with a 
ditferciit section, and at a rather higher level. The manner in 
wliich the junction of the vaulting of this aisle with that of the 
choir was effected is worthy of examination. The last bay, at 
the south endj is now enclosed for a vestry ; and, judging from 
the uumoulded extremities, it would seem that the lattice on 
the north side is in its old position. It is of Tudor date, aud 
has nine compai'tTuents, divided by neatly panelled mullions or 
styles, with tall pinnaclea. 

Where the passage of the triforium crosses the south end of 
the transept it is lighted from the church by two groupes of 
lancet-headed opcuiugs, the middle arch being wider than that 
on each side and stilted. The triple supporting shafts have 
filleta in front, and, in the eastern gronpe, the nail-head onia-. 
ment appears between the reeds of tlie shafts. In the cleres- 
tory are three tall lancet lights, the central one higher than the 
rest; the interveniug narrow panels, recessed for about half 
their height, being- supported by triple shafts. 

The basement- story of the west side of the transept is 
engaged by tic staircase before mentioned, at the base of which 
a lofty doorway once opened into the cloister. It seems to have 
been the original intention of the architect to build the tri- 
forium after the same design as that of the south end, as shewn

by the arch which joins it, but he afterwards chfknged his plan. 
It dOw presGiita ibur laacet lights, hetwecn vrliich are three 
lancet-headed openings of inferior height. Like thoae enclosing 
the windowsj they have a plain hood moulding:, and their inrpoat 
moiddings are prolonged to the jambs of the arches between 
which they are placed. 

The clerestory ia composed of four bays, each lancet light 
appearing in the middle of an arcade of three members, tlioae 
on each side being lower and narrower, but all much stilted 
above the capitals of the shafts. Itis part of the church retains 
its old roof, of the same date and character as that of the choir, 
but the bosses are more effective, being not bo flat. 

Sis interesting monumental slabs ai'c now preserved in the 
south transcptj aU of them disinterred within the last few years, 
having: been found on the south side of the church. One of 
them, engraved in the Journal of the ArchsologicaJ Institute,

the margin, and is iuacrihed 4- HIC ; JACei MATILDA :

In comiiai'iaon vTith the south wiug of tLe tracaept, tlie 
northern one shews much progression in style, together with 
some alteratioua Iq the design. On the west sLde^ the base- 
ment, — with the exception of the space occupied by the arch, 
which once opened into the aisle of the nave,— is enriched by a 
deeply-recessed trefoil-headed arcadcj of which the shafts and 
hasea with the bench-tahle are destroyed, if the latter is not 
concealed below the modern fioor. The spandrils are filled 
with plain recessed qnatrefoilsj helow each of which a smaller 
quatrefoil of foliage is embossed. TLe pier of the archway, 
once opening into the nave aisle, which ilanka this arcade, 
is of the same date, hut the opposite one appears to be of the 
later date of the west side of the tower, into which it is 
honded. Over this arch are three blank nichesj standing on a 
string course. The triforiuni is lighted by three tall lancets, 
appearing under an arcade of BCTcn members, bo that the cen- 
tral one is flanhed on each aide hy a donble recess of little less 
altitude, but much less width. The shafts by which they are 
supported rise no higher than the ceCing of the pathway, 
causing^, therefore^ the interveution of a vertical and unmonlded 
space between their capitals and the imposts of the arches, of 
such con&idcrable altitude that the latter can hardly come within 
the denomination of being "stilted." The clerestory — similar 
in character to that of the west aide of the opposite wing, save 
that the mouldings are much holder and more effective — -is 
composed of four bays; the opening for the windows in those at

A continuation of the ai-caded basement ornaments the 
north face of the transept. Above are three tall and uaaTow 
lancet lights, ranging with those on the west side, but divided 
by triple and handed shafts. They have a monlding at the 
angle of the jamb, and another next the glass ; and the passage 
that traverses their sills ends abruptly, and does not pass into 
the triforium on the east aide, which is at a much higher levdj 
and is approached by a staircase descending from the clerestory.

the south, has the addition of a uail-hcaded moulding in tlie

the same niGmber of the east side of the south transept and of 
the choir, the triforium exhihits four large, wide, semi-cii-cular- 
headed openings, hut much i-icht-r in the rcdaphcation of the 
moiddlng's ; and the two pointed siib-arches of each are enriched 
with dog-tooth raouldinySj their shafts being tripled and finished 
with octagonal capitals. The vaulting shafte, abo, are tripled, 
and spring from beantiiuUy foliated bosses. The clerestoiy 
resembles that of the west side of the Bouth transept, and the 
roof that of the opposite wing. 

Ill the aisle, the head of the basement arcade oceiu^ at a 
lower level than on the other eidea. It has been highly deco- 
rated in the spandrilg by Bculptured foliage, and probably other 
subjects, much of irliich has been barbarously and wantonly 
hewn away, and the rest choked with linaewasli. The support- 
ing shafts are single cylindrical columns. There are three 
small lancet lights towards the east, moulded at the margin of 
the jarah, and another towarda the north, hut with a trefoil 
head within, formed by shouldering the arch. The vaulted 
roof has riba of several reeds, and bosses of foliage of slight 
convexityj that may have suggested the section of those on the 
Tudor roofs of the choir and transept ; the shafts resting on 
beautifully designed braekets, Tlie aisle haa formerly been 
di\ided— probably soon after it was built — into three chapels, 
the brackets for Btatues still remaining. On* at the south end, 
introduced by Prior Leschman, hears his initials disposed in the 
form of St, Andrew's cross, as occurs in other iuataaces before 
mentioned. 

Between the end of this aisle and the eontiguoua aisle of 
the choir is a tomb filling the whole space between the pier and 
the wall. The masonry of the base supports a slab incised 
with a croMj elegantly adorned with vine leaves, engraved in 
the first volume of this wo]'k, page 3G. It ia canopied by a low 
elliptical-headed arch of the Decorated style, with a continuous 
impost, havhig a bracket for a statue on the west aide, towards 
the north, and one at each side of the jamb, towards the south.

The top of the tomb is. coped liorizoiitallyj with a panelled pro- 
jeetion in the centre of eaeh diagonal face^ whieli may have 
supported a figure. A century ago, ae it would appear from 
HutchinBoii's accountj tluB waa supposed to be the tomb of 
ElfwaJd, king of North umbria, who ivas alain. in 788, and 
buried — "cum niagno hoQore " — in the church of St. Andrew 
of Hesham. I regard this, Lowevor, as a mere baseless coiijee- 
tnve. For, if the eanoua of Hexham, at the memorable traos- 
lation of the relics of their chtircli iu the year llo4, paid no 
especial mark of respect — aa we may infer from the silence of 
Aclrcd, wlio chi-onicled tlie ceremony — to the remains of King 
Elfwald, over the place of whose murder they were told that 
a, ''mysterious light was seen to hover aiid to shine," and 
even a church was huilt; it is very difficult to imagine what 
was the nature of the impulse which could iuduce their aucces- 
sora, or, indeed^ any person, to prefer his commemoration toJ 
that of any of the aaiated persons that are resting; here, and to 
have erected such a monument after he had moiddered in his 
grave between five and six hundred years. Moreover, if 
Camden, when he made his survey in the time of Queen Eliza- 
hethf aud in earnest scai'ch of historical monuments, never 
noted such a auppositiou, while he recorded tlie pre.seuce of the 
effigy of Umfrevillc, aud even ila cross-legged position and 
charged sliield, it is fair to infer that it has arisen in subsequent 
timea. Dr. Johnston, also, who visited ilie church about two 
centuries ago, makes no mention of it. 

At the north end of this aisle, a cross-legged effigy is now 
laid ou the floor, which, moat likely, lias occupied this or an 
adjitcent site at least for a similar period, for Dr. Johnston 
observers, " In the north cross of the conventuall, now the paro- 
chiall church of Hexham, lyith this ethgie with a free stone," 
the same being identified by the armorial bearings on the shield 
-=-a feat* charged irith three garbs. When Mr. Hutcliinsna saw 
it in 1776, it was " in a pait behind the north door;" and Mr. 
Wright reports it, in 1823, as being "near the north door, Wi

moved from its table." The head, which rests on a rectangular 
cushion without sapportea-a, is attirei in a round-topped mail 
hood, hound with a fillet, aud overlying the supcoat. The body 
ia Tested in a suite of mail, covered with a. eleeveleas surcoat, 
fastened i-oiiud the waist by a etrap, which contracts the plaits 
below 8-0 as to appear like a row of fiisila; the hands are ele- 
vated in prayer. A large shield, on which the fesa is sunk so 
that the face of the three garbs with which it is charged is on a 
plane with the fieldj is snspended by a guige over his right 
shouldei". Tlie sword belt is embossed with large mund plates. 
One of the crossed legs is broken off, hut the otheij armed 
with a spur, rests against a couchaut lion. Judging^ from " his 
shield ur hearingj a feese azure with three garbs proper," though 
no colour is now visible ou it, Mr. Hutehiueon conjectured* 
that this effi^ commemorates " one of the Aydena of Ayden 
Castle,"— about five miles tiorth-eaat of Heshiim — " the anna 
assumed by the Edcns of the north at thie day being greatly 
aiinilar." And he goes on to say that " the male line of the 
family waa extinct in Edward the Pii'st's time ; and Emma, the 
heiress and reliet of that family, was by bini, na a royal ward, 
given in marriage to Wallis." The Testa de Nevill has men- 
tion only of Geotfrey de Ayden, as tenant of a caincate of land 
in Whelpingtou, within the barony of Umfreville." I do not 
remember to have seen any ancient roO of arms that confirms 
Mr. Hutchinson's assignation of the heraldic charge on the 
shield, but until the subject can be efi'ectiially investigated, it may 
be remembered that, in Somerset Glover'e Roll, the barou of Tin- 
dale is said to bear the singular coat. Argent, on a fess or, three 
garbs sable— and that he resided at Langley Castle, above six 
miles west of nexham. This barony was held by the family of 
Tindale until about the year 1233, when it appears from the 
Pipe Roll that Nicholas de Bolteby — bo called from big manor 
near Thirsk, in Yorkshire — who had married Plnlippa, daughter

and co-beit'esa of Adam de Tindale, paid twenty marks for his 
relief, and for obtaiiiiDg scisiu of her eatates. I think that 
the effigy represents this Nicholas Bolteby, who died in the 
last year of the reign of Henry III., a period to -which the 
costume of the figure may be assigned. Be this as it may, 
I need BC&rcely add that Mr. Walli* was obviously mistaken 
in supposing this effigy to represent the duke of Somerset, 
who was beheaded after the battle of Hexham, in li&t^ al- 
though, ]>prhftps, it had been ao reported for several genera- 
tions before Lis time ; for in " A Relation of a Short Survey 
of Twcnty-Bix Northern Counties/ made by three Norwich 
soldiers," in the year 1634., they said that, in this church 
"much defaced and decay'd, and now uiiseamely kept,'" is the 
mouuraeut " of a Duke that was elain in a battle against the 
Scotta." 

In Mr. Wallis'a account of this clmi'ch, puL]is.hed in the 
year 1769, he says that, " near the north door on the right hand 
is a flat funeral atone, very ancient. It has a crozier upon it, 
and this inscription — Hic jacet Thomas de Dbvilstonb."* 
Mr. Hiitchiuaon also noticed it " iu the pavement of the cross 
aisle," together with " another with a crosier aud chaliecj in- 
scribed 'Johannes Dew,' with the usual legendary prayer in the 
margin — Ofate pro anivia,"^ etc. But both the stones were 
missing in 1833.'" It is possible that both theae topographers 
may have mistaken some other object for a ci"oaier. At all 
events., there is no such person aa Thomas de Devilstone on the 
list of the Priors of Hexham, and, if he had held that high 
office, it would have been recorded on his gravestone. Tlie 
other stone, wliich, as Hutchinson tells na," was " inscribed in 
very rude characters, Hic jacet Johes dew" etc., may possibly

There are now preserved in the north transept several de- 
tached moimnients of considerable iiitcrcat which Uave been

most ancient is part of the head of a Sason cross. On one 
side ft bo89 in the centre is surrounded with au interlaced scroll, 
on the other the scroll appears without the boss. The edge 
around is left plain, hut a fragment of the shaft attached to the 
lower arm shews that it has been decorated with scroll work, 
and there are traces of an inscriptiou. A delineation of this 
relic irill be found on p. xxxi, no. 3.

stone basin like that of a font, apparently of Early English 
date. It lias been supported lay a, circular ehaft, and may have 
been used as a holy-water atoup in some part of the conventual 
church. 

I may mention also that in the west wall of this transept, 
within the basement, an iron staple remains, fixed, with a fetter- 
lock attached, but for what purpose it has been used I have 
not ascertained. Probably, during the conftiBion of the civil 
war of the seventeenth century, prisoners may have been eome- 
timea kept in durance here, for a temporary period. 

The central tower has been apparently erected after the 
completion of tlie choir and both wings of the transept, and on 
the site of one which covered the same area. Each face of its 
semi-piers ia composed of five serai -circular shafts with plain 
capitalB, and an abacua of the eeime form above the whole; the 
basea, like thoae of the pillars on the east side of the transept, 
being nearly bui-ied by an elevation of tlie floor, which detracts 
much from the effect of this part of the church. On ita eastern 
side, they appear to have been inserted, and are partly detached 
from the walls of the choir and transept ; and fi-om the abrupt 
disconnection of the base of the hood moulding above the 
western a,rch from that on the north, it may be assumed that 
all the sidea have not beencarried up at once. It will be ob- 
served also that the archivolt above the rood-sicreen is more 
richly moulded than the rest.

a doorway with good perpendicidar mouldings has afforded an 
immediate passage between the quadi'angle and the area of the 
mined nave. 

The chapter-house, though a roofleae ruin, remains in better 
couditiun than might liaye teen expected ; for, after having 
suffered successive injuries through the unseemly puiposea to 
which it has been appliedj "to such base uaea" did it "coma

slaaghter-houae. Fortunately, however, m yet it has escaped a 
projected "restoration." It ia immediately adjacent to the 
south face of the trauseptj the passage which usually intervenes 
in conventual churches having, as before explained, been in- 
cluded within the church. It does not aasamc an octagonal 
form, like the chapter-houses of the canons of Bolton-iii -Craven, 
Thornton -ou-Humber, and probably of Bridlington, &ince we 
are told the latter waa "coveryd with lede spere facyon;"" but 
is a parallelogram, like that in the same style which must have 
been among the glories of Kirkham. Until, however, the sites 
of many of the Augnatiniau Priories are relieved of the rubbish 
which must conceal many monuments of antiquity, it will be 
useless to speculate whether the octagonal form was adopted by 
a resolution of the Chapter-Creueral, or otlierwise. It has been

their masonry being liondet!; ami was approached from the 
eastern alley of the cloister tlirough a lofty pointed doorway, 
decorated with dog-tuoth work, and flanked on each side by a 
lancet-headed window, or rather opening, which Las never con- 
tained glass. It vr-M probal)ly covered with drapery in the form 
of a ciirtain. The same arrangement may be seen at Kirkstall 
abbey, and probably once existed in many monasteries. The 
outer face of each of these openings — ^the jambs and bases of 
which are much fractured — waa perhaps^ originally, diiided by 
a mullioit into two of similar form; for that arrangement 
occurred in the interior, in consequence of the shaft of the 
arcade nnder the bay in which the opening was enclosed, stand- 
ing in front of it. The apartment was divided into three aisles 
by two pillars on each side, which have been broken down, to- 
gether with the vaulting which they supported. Each of the 
bays not occupied by the doorways was aubdividcd by shafts into 
two lancet-headed panels, the base of the arcade forming a seat. 
The east end, Uke the west, has a doorway placed between two 
openings, and as the wall of the transept extends beyond it on 
tlie north, and that of a cnntignous building ca of equal leugthj 
there liaa not been a glazed window in the place. I eoujecture, 
Jiowevcr, that what now rem.aiiiii is but the vestibule to the 
chapter- house, though it may have served as such since the 
burning of the church in 1396, when, or at some subsequent 
period, it would appear that the eastern portion has been broken 
down. For, it must be observed that, not only both the esterior 
and the interior faces of the eastern end are arcsded and 
benched, but both the arcade and bench appear to liaTe returned 
and extended at least as far as the end of the aisle of the 
transept. A few inches only of the bench table on the north 
side, indeed, remain J but its plinth, projeeting slightly from 
the wall, may be traced throughout. And n.^ the masonry

vaulting, tbougJi apparently not in the same condition as when

clitipter-liouse has never been rebuilt; and tliat ao miict of tbe 
transept wall as formed its northern side was rcfaced, and left 
da ive see it now. It ia evident, also, from the fractured south- 
east ang'le of the buildingj that the southern wall has been 
prolougedj but how fai', the removal of a heap of nibbish 
alone may shew. There appears, however, to be a thick wall 
embedded in itj of what date is not evideut, running cast and 
west at a few yards' distance from the present termination of 
the ruin. 

Ahc^h^e preeeut portion of the chapter-house has been a 
chamber, wfth a. high-pitched roof, that encroached on the 
central light of tbe transept. It was approached from the plat- 
form at the south end of that member of the chiorch; and 
BOme portion of it, if not the whole, may have been used as a 
Bacriety for the preservation of the sacred veaaela and the veat- 
menta, and many other purposea connected with the religions 
serviceH of the convent. 

On the south side of the chapter- house has been a large 
vaulted apartment, divided by a row of four columnfl, with n 
recess in tbe western wall. It has apparently had no cOTDian- 
nieation with the cloister, and, perhaps, may have been used as a 
cellar, or for the reception of stores. The auperatructure, no 
douht^ was the dormitory of the canons^ who, had that apart- 
ment heen placed elsewheTCj could not, in consequence of the 
rteeti-uction of the nave, have descended readily to their noe- 
tiirnal services in the chm-eli. 

The basement- atory of the modem houaes, which atill de- 
fines the western boundary of the cloister, has apparently served 
as part of the store-liouses and offices of the Prior's lodgings, 
and to have eacaped ruin, from this portion of the monastery

the Priory, ^' Its cloisters and chapel were to be seen not many 
years since ;" anci adds^ " Here is a finely-carved oak hedstead,

were caused by an ignorant worlimau, who nailed the &ing;c to 
the posts of the bed without the moulding, which formerly 
went between them. No part of the old building remains 
except the mauor-offioe, the refectory, and a small specimen of 
the cloiatGrs."" In the year 1823, Mr. Wright obsen-es, "A 
tew years ago the walks of the cloister might be traced; and, 
within the memory of man, an elegant oratory stood on the 
south-east side of tlie garden. Its roof of stone was richly 
ornamented, and supported by four lonie columns." After 
some unimportant rcraarka, he goes on to say, "the large room 
in the present building ia suppo&ed to haYB been the refectory;'* 
and tells ua tliat the houBe " was altered and repaired by Sir 
Walter Calverley Blackett, Bart., about 1730— burned by 
accidentj and entirely rebuilt by T. R. Beaumont, Esq.j — again 
burned, and again repaired within these few yewa.**" 

It ie to be regretted that the&e accounts are not giveu in 
auch particular terras as might have enabled us to have inferred 
more clearly the condition of the house within the present century. 
It would bave been especially interesting to have known more 
about the chapel, and the oratory with the ornamented roof, "sup- 
ported by lonie columns." If the latter, however, did actually 
exist in this form, and the volute of the capitals wae not mis- 
taken for a somewhat similar effect that occnrs in Norman aad 
transitional-lNormau work, it may have been only a garden- 
building or summer-house, constructed, partly, by some of the

owners of the pi-operty out of the ruias of the Priory/ I appre- 
he-nd that wKat Mr. HodgaoB calk "a small apccimen of the 
cloLstcrsj" maj he a very beautiful lavatory, which still remains 
at the extreme southern end of what was once the wall of the 
western alley of the cloister, and on the right ha:nd side of the 
entrance into the refectory ; in which position an exquisite work 
of this kind may still be admired at lCirk!mm, The lower por- 
tion) containing the basin, has been Walled up in comparatively 
modern times, hut the tead or canopy remains perfect, in the 
form of an arcade of seven members, all apparently in their 
original position, the central one being the largest. The ■semi- 
octag^onal panelled shafts with spiral beade^ enriched with 
croelcet& and finiala, that divide the compartments, stand on 
short columns with beautifully ecidptured capitals, which rest 
on fine brackets, projecting like gurgoyles, in the abape of 
human and animal forms. Each of these compartments is sub- 
divided, hy blank tracery, into two trefoil- headed panela with a 
pointed trefoil above each, the rest of the sweep of the aj-eh 
being filled with a circle containing a roiuided trefoil ; and the 
whole is covered with a triangular head with crockets and 
iliuala. As it is very Improbable that the canons wmdd erect a 
work of this character fox many years after the ravages of the 
Scots in 1S96, when their utmost resonreeB must have been 
Bevcrifily taxed to provide for tbem^elvcs, and more necessary 
works in the Church ; it, perhaps, had only been just completed 
when the house was visited with this calamity. In 1312, the 
town of Hexham was burnt in a predatory incursion by Robert 
de Brus, and the goods of the Priory having been totally eon- 
snmtd or stolen, the canons were obliged to di&perse, and in 
1320 were atill unable to retuj-n.!' Collectora were even wau- 
dering about in the country in 1336, with the archbishop's 
brief, in quest of funds for the canons and their Church.'

The refectory stuI kitchen of the coiiveut proliably flanltcd 
the. south aide of the quaclrangle, but the site of the buildiiigs 
is now laid level with the sward, together with that of mauy 
other offices ttat would he iieeeaaarily required for the domestic 
and tt^rif'ultural jHirposes of the House. In consequenee of 
probable alterations made by owners of the property after the 
Suppression, it ia unsafe to pronounce a decided opinion on 
appeai-auces that now present themseh'es in the contiguous por- 
tion of the Priorj", hut it may be noticed that the very small 
fragment of the south aide of the cloister does not bond or 
course witb the west^ra wall. And, judging from the truncated 
form of the east abaft southward of the lavatory, it would aeem 
thiit the aoath wall nnty have been erected before the other, the 
shaft being therefore accommodated to a projection above it. 
In this fragmentj the jamb of a doorway of the Early Decorated 
period occurs, at the heig'ht of ein;Lt courses, but, for the reason 
just stated, it e^nnot be positively concluded that it was that of 
the Tcfectoiy. In Kirkham Priory, the refectory of the canons 
waa entered at tliis point, liaving also a lavatory on the light 
band side ; and, like that of the canons of Eaaby, anil of other 
houseSj was placed above a basement story, occupied as cellars, 
the sides of the apartmenta also being parallel with the conti- 
guous alley of the cloister. It is nevertheless uncertain wbetLcr, 
in these two cases, the declination of the ground may uot have 
influenced the position and elevation. 



Tor nearly the whole of this article" on the fabric of the 
Priory the Society ia indebted to the able pen of one of its vice- 
presidents, Mr. Walbran of Ripon. The publicatiou of this 
volume has been delayed for some months until this architec- 
tural description could be made after a regular survey of the 
church; for in these days of change and destruction, it seemed

to be most desirable that what remains of a place which possesses 
liistorical aasoeiations — equal certainly to those of any other 
church in England — ^hoyld bie properly notefl down. It will he 
seen fifom tlie preceding pages that it taa been cruelly dealt 
mth. But not, the Editor must guard himself here, in an 
ung;cnerous spirit. The coutrihutora ui general, and one family 
in particulaj- — the first in importance in the district — were most 
ansiona to preserve the characteristics of & building of which the 
whole of North limb crl and was justly proud. To secure this 
object large euma of money were munificently proTided, It is, 
however, yery greatly to be regretted that modern arcLitecta 
are so fond of trying to displace by their own work the choicest 
remains of Christian antiquity. They ncTer gain by the eon- 
trastj and the word "restoration" is now, unhappily, only syno- 
nymous With destrtl>ction. In twenty years sCarC&ly one old 
church will be left in the whole country. 

It is much to he I'cgretted that Hexham did not find an 
annalist in the late estimable and kind-hearted historian of 
Northumberland. Mr. Hodgson welL knew the grandeur and 
the iraportatice of the subject, and he was most anxious to 
make himself fully acquainted vrith all its dctaiis. In his last 
Tolume he observes in a note, — 

" The archives of the see of York hive not, I apprehend, been rfi7i- 
fftntf;! searched for materials for the Iiiatifftf 0/ Ike church and franchise 
of Jlexhum, I wish some ffenerons antiqufii'ian Bjnrit icoiild spare me 
that Iro'ihie,"* 

In the ordinary course of the History of Northumberland 
Hexham waa the next place that Mr. Hodgson would haye 
taken up. His naind waa turned especially towards it when his 
health gave way. He was unwilling^ however, to give up so 
favourite a theme without a struggle, as is shewn by the follow- 
ing extracts from a letter which waa addressed to my father : — 

''7/exAajrt, Sept. 6, 1841. / have been. here, a wetk, con/ineil almost

meti you. The ' Blnch Book' I hwe- had , lint, tijler 1' copied a part of 
it, I dare not collnte it; doing so hitrts mj/ head."' 

The result of thia letter was that Dr. Haine went to Hesliam 
on the Thursday, and the Editor, at that time a boy, Eiccom- 
pauied his father, and paid his first visit to Wilfrid's cathedral. 
Our stay at Hexliam was but a short one, as we returned to 
Durhaoi in the evening; but the Editor well remembers how 
much he was impresaed with the architectural features of the 
graud old church. Its " rcatoration" was at that time in agita- 
tion, and this waa, prohably, one of the reasons of Dr. Raine'is 
journey. Tlic following extracts irom a letter addi-esaed by Mr. 
Hodgson to the chairmnn of the committee for the " restora- 
tiou," have TCference to the proposed work, and shew how the 
Btck man's fancy preserved much of its old fire and Bpuit, 
althoitgh his memory was at the time dulled, and liis power of 
expression enfeebled. They will be read with a melancholy 
pleasure by those who knew the amiable writer, when they are 
told that Hexham was the place at which his pen dropped from 
his gra£p, and that this was, perhaps, One of the last letters that 
he wrote on any topographical subject. The committee seem to 
have applied to him for information and advice, and, dcliglited 
with what was then before him at Hesham,'' he urged the 
members to draw up a graphic account of the natural and Mb- 
torie gloriea of Hexham and its charclj. 

" / would remind them of the exceediitrf richness, as well as lavdiness

Mr. Audreios, the lecturer of He^-ham — 'J a.m persuaded i/our church

shewed me in a ruinous part of the chapter -housp, built in the English 
Btgle — the translation of it is, ' Being jireaent (or attendant) Flavius

The Editor cannot conclude without expressing to the 
members of the Society his grati^cation at the kind reception 
■which the first volume of this work has met with at their hands. 
He can only wish that the second had been issued to them 
long ago, as he hoped and expected it would j but all who 
are conversant with literary work and literary societies are well 
aware that punctuality, however desirable, cannot always be 
attained.
