namely, Eustace, earl of Boulogne, and Baldwin, Raymond,the above-named earl, and Boamond, the son of Bobert Guis-card ; and with these foBowed an immense multitude of people of aB languages. On the seventeenth day before the calends of July, being the Lord's day, Sampson was consecrated bishop of Worcester, in the church of St. Paul, at London, by Anselm, the archbishop of Canterbury. After this, Bobert, duke of Normandy, having determined to set out for Jerusalem with the rest, sent ambassadors to England, and requested his brother William to renew the treaty of peace between them, and to lend him ten thousand marks of silver and receive from him the dukedom of Normandy as a security ; upon which, the king, being desirous to comply with his request, gave orders to the nobles of England that each one should, to the best of his ability, supply him with money with all possible haste. Accordingly, the bishops, abbats, and abbesses, broke up the golden and other ornaments of the churches ; the earls, barons, and sheriffs stripped their soldiers and villains, and supplied the king with no small amount of gold and silver. In the month of September the king crossed the sea and made peace with his brother, giving him six thousand six hundred and sixty-six pounds of silver, and receiving from him Normandy in pledge. In the year 1097, WBUam, king of the English, returned to England at the season of Lent, and, after Easter, set out a second time20 for Wales, with an army of horse and foot, with the intention of destroying all persons of the male sex. However, he was unable to take or slay hardly any of them, but lost some of his own men, and a great number of horses. After this, he sent the Clito Edgar to Scotland, with an army, in order that, after expelling his uncle, Dufenald, who had usurped the throne, he might make his cousin Edgar, the son of king Malcolm, king in his stead. On the thirteenth day before the calends of July, being Saturday, the Christians took the city of Nice. On the third day before the calends of October, and the fifteen days following, a comet appeared. Some persons at this period affirmed that they had seen in the heavens a wonderful sign, like a fire burning in the shape of a cross. 30 This was his third expedition. See under the years 1094 and 1095. 186 ANNALS OF ROGER DE HOVEDEN. A.D. 1097.
