124 ANNALS OF HOGEB BE HOVEDEN. A.D. 1189. Henry, the brother of "William Marshal, to whom the king had given the deanery of York, came to Burton, in Lindsey, and there received orders as subdeacon and deacon on the same day, from Concord, bishop of Aghadoe. But when the said Henry came to York with the king's letters, in order to receive his deanery, he found no one to instai him as dean : as the clergy of the see of York asserted that no person but the archbishop ought to instai him as dean. However, Hamo, the praecentor of York, installed him in the prebendal stall which the king had conferred on him: but when Bucard de Pudsey, the archdeacon of Durham, to whom the king had given the treasurership of the church of York, came with the king's letters directed to Hamo the prsecentor, requesting him to instai the said Bucard, he was unwilling to obey the king's commands. Por he asserted that Boger, the archbishop of York, had given to him the said treasurership, and that king Henry had confirmed it to him ; and he appealed thereon to the Apostolic See ; and thus, both missing the objects of their desire, took their departure. In the same year, Pormator,28 archbishop of Treves, departed this life at Northampton, in England. In this year, also, in the month of September, the men of London, and many others who had taken ship on their way to Jerusalem, laid siege, in Spain, to a certain city of the Saracens, which is called Silvia, and took it ; and, after clearing it of the abominations of the Saracens, they ordained that the Christian law should be there observed for ever, and built a church in honor of God and Saint Mary, the Mother of God, and caused it to be dedicated by the neighbouring bishops, and had a certain clerk of Planders, who had come with them, consecrated bishop of the said city, and then delivered it up to Sancho, king of Portugal. In the same year, Godfrey de Lucy, bishop of "Winchester, purchased of Bichard, king of England, two exceUent manors, namely, Yfargrave and Menés, which formerly belonged to the bishop of Winchester, as was generally said ; and Samson, abbat of Saint Edmund's, bought of him the manor which is called Mildenhall, for a thousand marks, and which, of ancient right, was said to belong to the abbey of Saint Edmund's. All the rest as weU, whoever chose, bought of the king their own rights and those of others ; by which the king acquired a very large sum of money. 53 29 Properly " Formalis." More commonly " Silves "
