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). The first named was (the supposed) father of Thurstan (a godson, most likely, of Archbishop Thurstan), whose son Alan exchanged, in 1173, with Archbishop Roger, all the lands which his father and ancestors had held in Stainley for lands in Bishopton, near Ripon.

The name of the patron saint is not known. The church was appropriated to the monastery of Beauvale, Notts, and a vicarage ordained, 16th May, 1355.
