JAMUS IIK On the 9th of January, A. κ. 1310, the examination of wit- A. D. 1S10. neeses was resumed at London, in the parish church of St. Dunstan's West, near the Temple. The rector of the church of St. Mary de la Strode declared that he had strong suspicions of the guilt of the Templars; he had, however, often been at the Temple church, and had observed that the priests performed divine service there just the same as elsewhere. William de Cumbrook, of St. Clement's church, near the Temple, the vicar of St. Martin's-in-the-Fields, and many other priests and clergymen of different churches in London, all declared that they had nothing to allege against the order.* On the 27th of January, Brother John deStoke.a serving brother of the order of the Temple, ofseventecn years' standing, being examined by the inquisitors in the chapel of the Blessed Mary of lierkyngccherehe at London, states, amongst other things, that scordar persons were allowed to be present at the burial of Templars ; that the brethren of the order all received the sacraments of the church at their last hour, and were attended to the grave by a chaplain of the Temple. Being interrogated concerning the death and burial of the Knight Templar Brother Walter le Bachelor, he deposes that the said knight was buried like any other Christian, except that he was not buried in the buryingground, but in the court, of the house of the Temple at London ; that he confessed to Brother Richard de Grafton, a priest of the order, then in the island of Cyprus, and partook, as be believed, of the sacrament. He states that he himself and Brother Radulph de Barton carried him to his grave at the dawn of day, and that Willu'lmus tie Spottfawod iiuctoritatc imperiati notariua qui pnrdictœ inquisition] intcrfuE die, anno, ct loco prsdictifl, tcniibu* pneeentibua supra dictia, ni^num mcum eolitutn eidem apposui rcquisitui, cs propria man u Bcripsi ragatue.—Acta contra Templarìos.
