in the middle of them -walked the king of the Scots, with the earl of "Warenne on his right hand, and the earl of Chester on ' his left. And thus, •wearing the crown, he was led into the metropolitan church of Saint Swithin up to the altar ; where, falling on his knees, he devoutly received the benediction from Hugh, archbishop of Canterbury, and was then led to his seat. Eleanor, the queen's mother, was seated with her maids of honor on the northern side of the church, opposite the king. The archbishop of Canterbury also celebrated the mass ; and the king was led by the before-named bishops to the offertory, and was then re-conducted to his seat. After the celebration of the mass, the king was re-conducted to his chamber, the procession going before him in the order above stated. Having taken off his more weighty vestments and his crown, the king put on lighter garments and a lighter crown, and then entered the refectory of the monks to dine there ; on which the before-mentioned archbishops and bishops, with the king of Scotland, and the earls and barons, took their seats at table, each according to his rank and dignity, and feasted magnificently. The citizens of London, having made the king a payment of two hundred marks, served in the cellars, notwithstanding the claim of the citizens of Winchester. The citizens of Winchester, however, served in the kitchen. On the same day, at a late hour, after dinner, the king returned to his mansion in Winchester castle. On the eighteenth day of the month of April, being the day after the king's coronation, Jollan,16 brother of Henry" de la Pomeroy, was accused of having traitorously taken part in the capture of Saint Michael's Mount, in Cornwall, and he chose rather to be banished from England than take his trial on the charge in the king's court. On the nineteenth day of the month of April, Hugh, bishop of Durham, of his own accord, no one compelling him so to do, gave up to the king the county of Northumberland, with its castles and other appurtenances; and the king ordered him to deliver the same to Hugh Bardolph. When William, king of Scotland, heard of this, he imme-, diately offered the king of England fifteen thousand marks of silver for Northumberland and its appurtenances ; saying that earl Henry, his father, held it by gift of king Henry the 15 V. r. John. '7 The word " regis" after this word is superfluous, and evidently a typographical error.
