Pepy's Diary. 19 Oct 1663. So up; and going by coach with Sir W. Batten (age 62) and Sir J. Minnes (age 64) to St. James's, they tell me that Sir Wm. Compton (deceased), who it is true had been a little sickly for a week or fortnight, but was very well upon Friday at night last at the Tangier Committee with us, was dead-died yesterday: at which I was most exceedingly surprised, he being, and so all the world saying that he was, one of the worthyest men and best officers of State now in England; and so in my conscience he was: of the best temper, valour, abilities of mind, integrity, birth, fine person, and diligence of any one man he hath left behind him in the three kingdoms; and yet not forty years old, or if so, that is all1. I find the sober men of the Court troubled for him; and yet not so as to hinder or lessen their mirth, talking, laughing, and eating, drinking, and doing every thing else, just as if there was no such thing, which is as good an instance for me hereafter to judge of death, both as to the unavoidableness, suddenness, and little effect of it upon the spirits of others, let a man be never so high, or rich, or good; but that all die alike, no more matter being made of the death of one than another, and that even to die well, the praise of it is not considerable in the world, compared to the many in the world that know not nor make anything of it, nor perhaps to them (unless to one that like this poor gentleman, who is one of a thousand, there nobody speaking ill of him) that will speak ill of a man.

Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. 755. This year Cynewulf, with the consent of the West-Saxon council, deprived Sebright, his relative, for unrighteous deeds, of his kingdom, except Hampshire; which he retained, until he slew the alderman who remained the longest with him. Then Cynewulf drove him to the forest of Andred [Note. The Weald in South-East England], where he remained, until a swain stabbed him at Privett, and revenged the alderman, Cumbra. The same Cynewulf fought many hard battles with the Welsh; and, about one and thirty winters after he had the kingdom, he was desirous of expelling a prince called Cyneard, who was the brother of Sebright. But he having understood that the king was gone, thinly attended, on a visit to a lady at Merton28, rode after him, and beset him therein; surrounding the town without, ere the attendants of the king were aware of him. When the king found this, he went out of doors, and defended himself with courage; till, having looked on the etheling, he rushed out upon him, and wounded him severely. Then were they all fighting against the king, until they had slain him. As soon as the king's thanes in the lady's bower heard the tumult, they ran to the spot, whoever was then ready. The etheling immediately offered them life and rewards; which none of them would accept, but continued fighting together against him, till they all lay dead, except one British hostage, and he was severely wounded. When the king's thanes that were behind heard in the morning that the king was slain, they rode to the spot, Osric his alderman, and Wiverth his thane, and the men that he had left behind; and they met the etheling at the town, where the king lay slain. The gates, however, were locked against them, which they attempted to force; but he promised them their own choice of money and land, if they would grant him the kingdom; reminding them, that their relatives were already with him, who would never desert him. To which they answered, that no relative could be dearer to them than their lord, and that they would never follow his murderer. Then they besought their relatives to depart from him, safe and sound. They replied, that the same request was made to their comrades that were formerly with the king; "And we are as regardless of the result," they rejoined, "as our comrades who with the king were slain." Then they continued fighting at the gates, till they rushed in, and slew the etheling and all the men that were with him; except one, who was the godson of the alderman, and whose life he spared, though he was often wounded. This same Cynewulf reigned one and thirty winters. His body lies at Winchester, and that of the etheling at Axminster. Their paternal pedigree goeth in a direct line to Cerdic. The same year Ethelbald, king of the Mercians, was slain at Seckington; and his body lies at Repton [Map]. He reigned one and forty years; and Bernred then succeeded to the kingdom, which he held but a little while, and unprosperously; for King Offa the same year put him to flight, and assumed the government; which he held nine and thirty winters. His son Everth held it a hundred and forty days. Offa was the son of Thingferth, Thingferth of Enwulf, Enwulf of Osmod, Osmod of Eawa, Eawa of Webba, Webba of Creoda, Creoda of Cenwald, Cenwald of Cnebba, Cnebba of Icel, Icel of Eomer, Eomer of Angelthew, Angelthew of Offa, Offa of Wermund, Wermund of Witley, Witley of Woden.

Effigy of Archbishop John Stratford. JOHN STRATFORD was born at Stratford-upon-Avon, in Warwickshire [Map], and was educated at Oxford. Being well read in the canon and the civil law, he became Archdeacon of Lincoln. Shortly after, Edward the Second made him his Secretary, and one of his Privy Council. Walter Reynolds, Archbishop of Canterbury, constituted him his principal official, and Dean of the Arches. On the deposition and death of Edward the Second, his ability stood so high in the estimation of the Queen and her son, that he was appointed Lord Chancellor of England. On the death of Mepham, in 1333, he was, at the King's special recommendation to the Pope, elevated to the Archbishopric of Canterbury. The King going abroad to prosecute his pretensions to the Crown of France, constituted the Archbishop Custos of the Realm in his absence, a circumstance which eventually drew on Stratford a severe persecution; for, Edward having disbursed vast sums of money to his followers and friends in the expedition, applied to the Archbishop for more, who seeing that it was impossible to make further levies on the King's subjects, who had lately so liberally supplied him, advised him to return home. Edward is said to have made his creditors in Flanders believe that Stratford was entrusted with large sums sufficient for paying their demands, and Stratford was charged, on the King's return, with having embezzled money which had really never been in his possession. If so noble-minded a monarch as Edward could have acted advisedly in such a matter, we should pronounce him at once the bravest and the meanest of his race; hut the mysteries of court intrigue cannot at this period be unravelled, so as to extenuate or confirm the imputation. The circumstances of the case are, however, highly in favour of Stratford's innocence; for, a Committee of Bishops and Lords being appointed to examine the accusation against him, their inquiry was never prosecuted, and Stratford was pardoned at the solicitation of the entire parliament. Little, indeed, did Stratford deserve a charge of peculation. So disinterested and indefatigable was his character, that he crossed the channel two-and-thirty times on various public missions, besides making many journeys to the Scottish border, yet received altogether for his pains not more than £300 from the King's Exchequer. Restored to the King's favour, he was permitted to pass the fifteen following years of his life in tranquillity, and died at his palace at Mayfield, in Sussex, in 1348. Stratford's character was strongly imbued with the mild virtues of the Gospel, so often obliterated by the temptations incident on high station. Gentle and merciful, rather lenient than rigorous to offenders, bountiful to the poor, he endeavoured to win men's hearts by that charity which considers every human being suffering from error or misfortune, as a brother. He munificently founded a college at Stratford-upon- Avon, his native place, and was interred in a tomb of alabaster in Canterbury cathedral, on the south side of the high altar. The effigy of Stratford is a beautiful work of art, although it has suffered some mutilation. He is habited in his mitre, cope, and gloves (the hands are fractured). Under his right arm is the staff of his crosier, or archiepis- copal cross (the head broken off). Over his left hangs the jewelled maniple for wiping any defilement from the sacramental cup. Under the cope appears the border of his dalmatic, and beneath the dalmatic a richly edged tunic. Fastened to his breast and shoulders by pins (of gold), is the consecrated pall with which the archbishops were invested by the Holy See, and for which it exacted a heavy pecuniary acknowledgment.

Details. 1. Crocheted edge of the mitre. 3. Cape of the cope. 3. One of the pins fastening the paH.
