262 ANNALS OF BOGEE DE HOYEDEN. A.D. 11C5. sea receded a distance of three thousand seven hundred and fifty paces,32 leaving vast quantities of fish of various kinds on the sands; and when the inhabitants of the country adjacent to the city that had been overthrown flocked together, and were intent upon taking the fish, the sea flowed back again and surrounded them, and swept them away into the deep. In the same year, William, the brother of Henry, king of England, departed this life. In this year also died Octavianus, the antipope, and was succeeded by the antipope Guido of Crema. In the same year, the abbey of Cupar was founded by king Malcolm. In this year also, Sumerled, the thane of Arregaidele, rose in rebellion against his natural lord, king Malcolm, and, landing in Eenfrew with a vast army of Irish, was there slain by a few of the people of the province. In the same year died Herebert, bishop of Glasgow, and was succeeded by Ingelran, the king's chancellor, who was consecrated by pope Alexander, at the city of Sens, although the deputies of Eoger, archbishop of York, vigorously opposed it. In the year of grace 1165, being the eleventh year of the reign of king Henry, son of the empress Matilda, the said king assembled a great council at Northampton, where he inflicted great annoyances upon Thomas, the archbishop of Canterbury. For in the first place, the king made his own horses take up their quarters at the archbishop's lodgings, on which the prelate sent word to the king that he would not come to court until his lodgings had been cleared of the king's horses and men. On the day after the council, archbishop Thomas came to the king's court, attended by his suffragan bishops, and demanded his leave immediately to cross the sea to go to pope Alexander, who at this time was staying in France ; this, however, he could not obtain ; but the king said to him, " You shall first answer me, for the injustice you have done to John, my marshall, in your court." For this John had made complaint to the king that when he had claimed in the archbishop's court a certain piece of land against him, as held by hereditary right, and had for a long time impleaded him in respect thereof, he was unable to obtain any redress from him, and had appealed from the jurisdiction of the archbishop's court upon oath, according to the custom of the kingdom. To this the archbishop made answer :— 32 Nearly three miles and a half.
