Deruentio, qui imbribus auctus & quasi irritatus sæpiùs ripas con-
temnit, & vioinis pratis superinfunditur, hinc Wreshill castrum
nitidum, & munitum præteriens quod Thomas Percius Vigorniæ
Comes construxerat, velocior suh Babthorpe quæ clare Equitum familiæ
nomen & mansionem præbet, in Ousam prosilit. Qui iam auctiores
vndas trahens delabitur prope Howden oppidum mercatorium, cuius
celebritas non est ab elegantia, aut frequentia, sed quod nomen terri-
toriolo adiuncto fecerit, (quod Dobodenshire inde dicitur) & Collegi-
atam iampridem quinque Præbendariorum ecclesiolam ostendat, cui
adiunctæ sunt Dunelmensium Episcoporum ædes, qui amplissimas
possessiones eò loci habent. E quibus Walterus Skirlaw qui floruit
circa annum 1390, vt in libro Dunelmensi legitur, Campanile huius
ecclesiæ summæ magnitudinis construxit, vt si fortuita aquarum eueniret
inundatio, incolis esset perfugium.
