The Neasham bull settles the name as Gerardo, and shows that he must have been created some three years earlier, unless these slight discrepancies are held to impugn its authenticity. They should hardly do so, since the authorities for the dates of these early cardinals appear to be very mcagre.

The following is a translation of the document :

Adrian, bishop, servant of the servants of God, to his beloved daughters in Christ, the boly nuns now or in future serving the Lord in the Church of the Blessed Mary of Nesham, and professed in perpetuity to a regular life.

To the prudent virgins who in religious garb with lighted lamps have set themselves in order to go to meet Jesus Christ the true bridegroom. In so much as they are known to be more inclined to sojourn in the service of the Lord and to hasten through good works to the nuptials of the Eternal King, so the more benefits to be conferred upon them by the Holy Roman Church. Therefore, beloved daughters in Christ, we, of our clemency, assent to your just requests, and we take under the protection of Saint Peter and of ourselves the aforesaid monastery, of which by the Divine indulgence you are now possessed, and this we confirm by the authority of this present writing. Firstly, decreeing that inasmuch as the monastic order according to God and the rule of Saint Benedict is known to be established in the same place, that it be there observed inviolate in perpetuity. Further, whatever possessions, whatever goods the said monastery at present legally and canonically holds or may in future obtain possession of, by concession of Pontiffs, by liberality of Kings or Princes, by oblations of the faithful or by other methods legal before the Lord, they shall remain firmly secured and unimpaired to you and your successors. Amongst which we have expressly mentioned : The place in which the before-named church is situated, called Sahaldecroft,19 which Emma, the daughter of Waldef, gave to you; one carucate of land of the lordship of the said Emma in Nesham, with a moiety of her offna ma rum20 in cultivated land in meadow and in turbary, and common pasture of all her land; the cultivated ground which is called Sadelflat; the mill upon the Kent; the cultivated ground between the mill and the church. Of the gift of Engelais one carucate of land; all your rithes of your lordship in Nesham whether in corn or otherwise. Of the gift of Halan, son of Torphin, one carucate of land in Phornetuna. No one shall presume to demand tithes

18 Giovanni da Mercone, cardinal priest of S. Silvestro e Martino ai Monti from 1145.- 1bid. p. 71.

19 In the grant to Lawson, 32 Henry VIII., there is mention of a close called Madencrofte,' also of 'a close called Saddelflat.'

20 • Offnamarum.' What is the meaning of this word ?

21 Meant for · Thornetona.' See deed of Henry II. Surtees, Durham, vol. iii., p. 238, and in Dugdale's account of the monastery mention is made of land in • Thornton.'



from the land which you have brought under cultivation with your own hands or by hired labour, or of the food for your animals. We also concede free right of sepulture at the same place, so that no one shall make any opposition to the piety or last wishes of those who may have thought of being buried there, unless perchance they may be excommunicate or under interdict : Saving, however, the rights of the Mother Church.

We decree, therefore, that it is unlawful for any man to rashly disturb in any way the said church, either to take away its possessions or to retain them if taken, to diminish or harass it by any vexatious proceedings whatever ; but all things shall be preserved whole and unimpaired of those for whose future government and sustentation they are conceded with use and enjoyment of all kinds. Saving the authority of the Apostolic See and the canonical rights of the bishop of the diocese.

If therefore, in future, any person, ecclesiastic or layman, being cognizant of this our written ordinance, be rashly tempted to act contrary to it with a second or third reminding, unless he make amends for his presumption by suitable satisfaction, he shall be deprived of his power, honour and dignity; he will know himself to be a criminal under divine judgment for perpetrated iniquity ; he will be debarred from partaking of the most sacred body and blood of God and our Lord Redeemer Jesus Christ, and at the last judgment will be subject to the severest punishment.

But the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ will be with all in this same place who keep his laws, so that here they will be partakers of the fruit of good works, and when before the severe Judge will receive the rewards of eternal peace. Amen. Amen. Amen.

[Read on the 30th day of November, 1892.]

NORTH SHIELDS. The paper that I read before the Society in December last recorded Some forgotten burying grounds of the Society of Friends at Gateshead, Whickham, Boldon, and South Shields. This evening I propose to give some account of grounds that existed at North Shields high end and at Cullercoats. In the paper referred to I mentioned a meeting that was surprized in 1661 at the house of Robert Linton of South Shields when all present were taken prisoners by major Graham, the deputy-governor of Tynemouth castle, and cast into nasty holes' within the said castle where they lay a full month, and then were turned out as no charge was made against them. One of the persons so confined was George Linton of North Shields, who only survived his imprisonment a few months. One of the registers at Somerset House has the following interesting entry regarding him :

1661. George Linton of North Shields dyed in North Shields & by the furry of-the tymes, was by relations & souldiers carryed away from friends and lyeth buryed in the down end of Tinemouth kirk, the month & day not certain, but it was as fifteen thought, in the 11th or 12th month. This interment is confirmed by the parish register, although there is a difference of two years in the date :— 166 George Linton of North Shields buried excommunicate.'

I am indebted to Mr. Horatio A. Adamson for the extracts from the parish register, and he informs me that this is the only record there of an excommunicated person being buried.

Subsequently the Society of Friends appears to have opened a burial ground in North Shields. It was situated in Coach lane directly opposite Trinity church. It is still intact, separated from the public road by a high stone wall. For a great number of years no burials
