98 ANNALS OF HOG EE DE HOTEDEN. A.D. 1188. on which occasion this Hugh, with nearly the whole of his household, and Henry, the bishop elect of Dol, with his household, died there. On this, the king of Scotland gave the bishopric of Saint Andrew's to Roger, son of the earl of Leicester, his chancellor, John, bishop of Dunkeld, being present, and making no objection thereto. The king of Scotland also gave his chancellorship to Hugh de Roxburgh, his clerk. In the same year, on the twelfth day before the calends of October, being the third day of the week, and the vigil of Saint Matthew the Apostle and Evangelist, nearly the whole of the town of Beverley, with the noble church of Saint John the Archbishop, was burnt. In the same year, master John GBbert, of Sempringham,83 first founder and pastor of the order which is caBed the order of Sempringham, departed this Bfe, and was buried in his church at Sempringham, among the nuns. In the same year, GBbert de Ogleston, a brother of the Temple, who had been elected and appointed by our lord the lung of England, together with some others, clerks and laymen, to coBect the tenths, was detected in the mal-appropriation thereof; but as the king could not, by the ordinary mode of trial, pass sentence upon him, he handed him over to the Master of the Temple, at London, in order that he might be dealt with according to the statutes of his order. On this the master of the Temple placed him in irons, and inflicted on him various punishments; but as to what those various punishments were, it is for you to enquire, who feel an interest in the concerns of that order. In the same year, a thing took place at Dunstable, in England, very wonderful to be mentioned and glorious to be seen, on the vigil of Saint Lawrence the Martyr, being the second day of the week ; for, about the ninth hour of the day, the heavens opened, and, in the sight of many, both clergy and laity, a cross appeared, very long and of wonderful magnitude, and it appeared as though Jesus Christ was fastened thereto with nails, and crowned with thorns ; His hands also were stretched out on the cross, and the wounds of His hands, and feet, and sides were bloody, and His blood was flowing down, but did not faB upon the earth. This appearance lasted from the ninth hour of the day tiB twilight. 8 8 In Lincolnshire—called *' Semplingham" in the text. This order was, from its founder, called " the Gilbertines." Both men and women lived in their houses, but separated by high walls.
