There were upwards of three hundred knights and fquires, the greater part of them from the Vermandois, Artois, and Corbiois, who had en-tered into this agreement, and, without inentipn-log it to their marfhak, had each informed the. other of their intentions. When the morning came for this expedition, • they were • aft ready arnjed, mounted, and; aflembled. They rode fofth in this array, nothing doubting pf fucçefs, and began to pake a circuit round the hijji of Tour-nehem, in order to gain an advantageous ppfition, and to fall upon one of the wings of the Englifh army. This wing was allotted to fir Robert de Nffnur and his people. Sir Rpbert had bçen .on guard that night, buç towards day-break had entered his tent, and was then fitting «c fupper, quite armed, except his hehnet, and the lord Defpoptin* with him. The French at this moment arrived at the quarters of fir Robert, which were alfo thofe of fome other German and Englifh Lords $ but due guard very fortunately had not difarmeçl them-içlvcs : they immediately oppofed the Frenchmen who came up fpurring and galloping, arçd checked their career. News foon reached fir Robert that his men were fighting, having been attacked by the. French. In an inftant, he pufhed the table. §om him where he had been feated, and faid to the lord Defpontin, € Come, come to the affift-ance of our men.* Inftantly he fixed his helmet i»ord Defponnn. CL Barnes calls him lord of Ponthieu. C 4 on - 23.
