homage and becoming tributary to his conqueror. 868, at Gainsborough, Alfred the Great married to Alswitha, daughter of

the Chief of the Ganii. 870, at Humberstan, Danes landed, destroyed Bardney Abbey, slew the

monks, and devastated the country rouod. 870, at Lacundon (from the event of the battle since called Threekingham),

in September, Danes defeated, and three of their Kings slaio, by the men of Lincolushire, commanded by Algar Earl of Mercia : but the day following, the Danes, who had been reinforced, were victorious ; whea Algar and his I wo Seneschals, Wybert and Leofric, were killed: after which the invaders marched to Croyland, burot the abbey and murdered the monks. Algar was buried in Algarkirk, thence so named, and the residence of his Seneschals is recognized in the villages of Leofrington

and Wiberion. 873, at Torksey, the Danes wintered, and were there visited by Burhred,

King of Mercia, who purchased a short peace. 941, Stamford and Lincoln taken by Edmund l. from the Mercian Dades
