A.D. 1194. UECOSCILIATIOJÎ OF THE BISHOPS. Second, and that after him, king Malcolm, his son, held it in peace for five years. Upon this, the king of England, after taking counsel with his people, made answer to the king of Scotland that he would give him the whole of Northumberland, excepting the castles, for the said sum ; but the king of Scotland declined to receive it without the castles. On the twentieth day of the month of April, the king of England caused the more wealthy persons to be separated from the rest of those who had been taken prisoners in the castles of Tickhill and Nottingham, and the other caetles of earl John, and to be placed in prison to be ransomed ; while the others he let go, on their finding sureties that they would appear at his summons, and abide by the judgment of his court ; on which each of them found sureties for a hundred marks, if he should not return to the court of the king.
