68 AKNALS OF EOGER DE Π ΟΥ EDEN. A.D. 953. invaded Northumbria with a hostile force, being compelled by necessity, he went over with his followers to Canute; and after having taken the oath of fealty and given hostages, he was slain by a certain very wealthy Dane, Thurebrand, surnamed Holde, Canute giving his sanction thereto ; and in his place his brother, Eadulph Cudel, was substituted. Earl Ucthred left three sons surviving him, Aldred, Eadulph, and Cospatric. The first two of these were successively earls of Northumbria ; the third, who did not enjoy the honor of the earldom, had a son named TJcthred, whose son was Eadulph, surnamed Eus, who, in after times, was the leader of those who murdered bishop Walcher ; indeed, he himself is said to have slain him with his own hand. However, shortly afterwards, he himself was slain 'by a woman, and was buried in the church of Gede-worde ; but afterwards such a mass of filth as his body was cast out from there by Turgot, formerly prior of the church of Durham, and archdeacon.

But, in the third year after, when, a treaty having been made, he had come to Hardicanute to be reconciled, he was slain by Siward ; who, in succession to him, had the earldom of the whole of that province of Northumbria : that is to say,. from the Humber to the Tweed. On his death ho was succeeded by Tosti ; who, having been banished from England for the great injuries which he had done to Northumbria, his earldom was given in charge by king Edward to Morcar ; and, afterwards, by king William. Morcar, finding his attention distracted by weighty matters in other quarters, entrusted the earldom beyond the Tyne to Osulph, a young man, son of the above-named earl Eadulph. Morcar being afterwards taken prisoner and placed in confinement, king William gave the earldom of Osulph to Copsi, who was the uncle of
