f. 18 blank.

f. 18v Nota quod zacharias pater Iohannis baptiste surdus ... non impono; sed est impositum a deo.

f. 19 Form of receipt by Thomas N, prior, and the convent of Bridlington, to the prior and convent of Kirkham, for #4 6s. 8d., due for the last Martinmas term of the annual pension from Little Kelk owed by reason of their church of Foston [on the Wolds]. Date: Bridlington, 1503.

Presumably imaginary, rather than copied from an original document: Robert Danby was prior 1498-1506, and there is no evidence of a Prior Thomas after 1409, following John in 1408, see V.C.H. Yorkshire ii,204-205. The canons of Bridlington had interests in Little Kelk and a chapel there, but the church of Foston belonged to the Carthusians of Hull from 1378; possibly it was leased to the canons of Kirkham (V.C.H. Yorkshire East Riding ii, ed. K. J. Allison (1974), 245-247, 187).

Miracula (4) S. Johannis Bridlingtoniensis. Ed. Grosjean, art. cit., pp. 121-123, collating (a, b) with Johannes Gielemans (d. 1487), Novalis Sanctorum, whose autograph copy (Vienna, MS Fideicommissar. 9364), from the Augustinian house at Rouge-Clo^itre (Rubeae Vallis), is apparently compared with the versions of these two miracles found (pp. 142 and 144) in the Vita by Hugh, A.San October, (1868), x,135-144, see ibid. p. 144 note; pp. 61-63 in "De codicibus hagiographicis Johannis Gielemans Canonici Regularis in Rubea Valle prope Bruxellas", Analecta Bollandiana 14, (1895), 5-88; and Grosjean pp. 113-116. (c, d) are not otherwise known, apart from the reference to (c) in Boniface IX's bull of canonisation, J. S.

(c) f. 31 The death on feast of St Basil [14 June] 1421 of William Sleghtholme, 'canonicus noster. quondam Capellanus et confessor sancti Iohannis de brydlyngton'.

William Sleghtholme 'tunc temporis capellanus' is cited by `Capgrave': Nova Legenda Anglie, ed. C. Horstman, (Oxford; 1901), ii,70

The text on ff. 45-46 is not found in Beleth; it replaces PL cols 96- 97 in cap 95. A rubric, f. 49, on the blessing of salt and water refers to Pope Alexander IV (1254-1261); Beleth died in 1182.

f. 53 note of the foundation of Bridlington Priory, as on f. 68v below.

So far failed to trace 55v-57r; passage re bps ring 56r-v is roughly the same as Durandus p. 51 but not identical, and untraced in any of works listed p. xv in Prepositinus; not Innocent III, De sacro altaris mysterio 1,xliv-xlvi. The matter preceding the final note is not readily identifiable in Henry of Huntingdon's extant works, and so the note presumably refers to material intended for the following blank.
