Mary, appointed him archbishop of Canterbury, and, at the feast of Saint John the Baptist, being the Lord's Day, had him consecrated at Canterbury. His consecration was performed by Giso, bishop of "Wells, and "Walter, bishop of Hereford, who had both been ordained at Borne by pope Nicolas, at the time when Aldred, archbishop of York, received his pall. Por these bishops had avoided receiving ordination from Stigand, who then held the see of Canterbury, as they knew that he had received the pall in an uncanonical manner. Herman, bishop of Salisbury, with some others, was also present at his consecration, shortly after which, Lanfranc consecrated Thomas, archbishop of York. These matters completed, the claim of the venerable Wul-stan, bishop of "Worcester, was again considered, Thomas having been now consecrated archbishop, to speak for the church of York ; and, a synod being held at a place which is called Pedreda,47 before the king and Lanfranc, archbishop of Canterbury, and the bishops, abbats, earls, and principal men of England, by the aid of the grace of God, the matter was there concluded, although Thomas, the archbishop of York, and his supporters, used every possible device, though far from being based upon the truth, to lower the church of "Worcester, and to subject her to the church of York, and strove in every way to make her a dependant thereof. However, by the just judgment of God, and the most positive evidence of writings much defaced and almost worn to pieces, Wulstan, the man of God, not only regained the possessions that he had claimed and demanded, but, also, by the gift of God and the concession of the king, obtained that extent of liberty which had been bestowed upon her by the first founders king Ethelred and Saint Hosher, earl of the AViccii, and by Ccnred, Ethelbald, Offa, Saint Kenulph the father of Kenelm the Martyr, and their successors after them, and those who reigned over the whole kingdom of England, namely, Edward the Elder, Ethelstan, Edmund, Edred, Edgar father of king Edward the Martyr, and those who had succeeded them. Lu the year from the incarnation of our Lord, 1071, Lanfranc and Thomas went to Borne, and received the pall from pope Alexander. The earls Edwin and Morcar, finding that king William wished to place them in confinement, secretly fled 47 Petherton, in Somersetshire. 150 ANNAXS OF ΕΟβΕΕ DE HOVEDEN. A.D. 1071.
