5 Mr. Ellis (Yorks. Arch. and Top. Journal, iv., 247) draws attention to the fact of this tenant in capite being called elsewhere in the Survey "comes Albericus"; and in the Recapitulation his name is thus written. He presumes him to be none other than Aloeric de Coucy, of Coucy, near Laon, who attested letters of Philip, King of France, dated 1067 and 1076. Count Alberic was appointed

Earl of Northumberland in succession to Walcher, Bishop of Durham, who wa assassinated in 1080. "Albericus Comes' had held manors in Leicestershire, Northants. Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, and Wiltshire. By Ada, his wife, heiress of Marle, he left a daughter and heiress, wife of Enguerrand, sire de Boves.Enguerrand VII. married, in 1365, Isabel, eldest daughter of Edward III., and was created Earl of Bedford, but died without male issue.

7 Presumably, as Mr. Ellis suggests (Yorks. Arch. and Top. Journal, iv., 384), Gospatric, son of Archil, a powerful chief of the Northumbrians, who made a treaty of peace with the Conqueror, by whom his son was accepted as a hostage. He took an active part in the attack on York castle, whilst William Malet was governor, and his estates were, doubtless, forfeited. The son appears to have "found favour in the King's eyes." Sigrida, the mother of Gospatric, was a daughter of the Yorkshire thane Chilvert, son of Ligulf. She had been the wife of another Archil (son of Fridgist), and also

of Eadulf, Earl of Northumbria. patric's estates were divided (it seems probable) amongst his sons-Gospatric, Uctred (de Allerston) and Dolfin (de Thoresby).
