ter at seven, and in summer at eight at night, Richard and the keys delivered to the prioress. That the prioress and all the sisters lodge nightly in the dorter, unless sick or diseased. That none of the sisters use the ale-house, or the waterside, where the course of strangers daily resort. That none of the sisters have their service of meat and drink to their Os chambers, but keep the frater and the hall, unless sick. That no sister bring in any hman, religious or secular, into their chambers, or any secret place, day or night, &c. That the prioress license no sister to go a pilgrimage, or visit their friends, without great cause, and then to have a companion. That the convent grant no corodies or liveries of bread, or ale, or other victual,

tery was surrendered, and afterwards became
a ruin. Thomas Lord Fairfax built a hand-
some brick house upon the site; which, with
the estate, was subsequently purchased by
Mr. Alderman Milner, a merchant in Leeds;
and is now the seat of his great grandson Sir
W. M. Milner, Bart.

BISHOPTHORPE, anciently St.
Andrew's Thorp, (P.); 3 miles S. of York.
areThe palace of the Archbishop of York, built
by Walter de Grey, in the early part of the
thirteenth century, is situated here. Since
that time the house has undergone several
reparations by the succeeding Archbishops.
The gardens contiguous to the palace were
laid out almost wholly at the expense of
Archbishop Sharp and the house received
great alterations from Archbishops Dawes
As and Gilbert, but the most considerable im-
anprovements were made by Archbishop Drum-
mond. Nor did this prelate confine his
munificence to the palace; he took down and
rebuilt the parish church, dedicated to St.
Andrew, in the year 1766, and adorned it
with a curious window, which was brought,
together with the stone used in building the
gateway in front of the palace, from the castle
of Cawood. There is here a National School,
built in 1815, patronized and supported by
the present Archbishop and his family, of
which Mr. Thomas Richardson is master.
