A.D. 1198. between Jumieges, a castle of tbe king of England, and Vernon, a castle of the king of France, in which combat the king of France and his people being put to flight, he lost sixty84 of his knights, and more than forty8 5 men-at-arms, besides many horse and foot ; the king of England pursuing the king of France with the edge of the sword, until he shut himself up in his castle of Vernon. In the same year, Philip, bishop of Durham, received, by command of king Eichard, the manor of Sedbergh, with the wapentake and knights' fees, and all other things thereto pertaining, as fully and wholly as the charter of the said king witnessed that the same grant was made to Hugh, bishop of Durham. The king also gave him permission to enclose with a ditch and hedge the wood of Cliff and the wood of Raie, and quitted claim to him of view of forest as to them both, and of all molestation on part of his foresters. In the month of September in this year, on the fifth day before the calends of October, being the Lord's day, Richard, king of England, took by assault a castle of the king of France, which is called Curcelles, and another castle of the same king called Burris ; and, on the day after the capture of the said castles, namely, on the calends of October, being the second day of the week and the vigB of Sahit Michael, Philip, king of France, having assembled a large body of troops and citizens, marched forth from Mante on his road to Curcelles. On hearing of this, the king of England went forth to meet him, and fought a pitched battle with him between CurceBes and Gisors, on which the king of France, being worsted, fled to the castle of Gisors ; and, whBe he was crossing the bridge of the town of Gisors, the bridge broke down on account of the multitude of those crossing it, and the king of France feB into the river Ethe, and had to drink of it, and, if he had not been speedily dragged out, would have been drowned therein. In this battle, Bichard, king of England, laid three knights prostrate with a single lance, and there were taken prisoners many Blustrious men among the knights of the king of France, whose names are as foBows : GaBs de Port, Matthew de Montmorenci, Alan de-Rusci, Gerard de Choir, Philip de NanteuU, Peter L'Eschars, Robert de Saint Denis, Theobald de Walengard, Cedunal de Trie, Roger de Modlen, Aimer Thiers, Reginald d'Ascy, Balde de Levigny, Thomas d'Asgent, s* V. r. twenty, 8 5 V. r. sixty.
