CHAP. XL. THE EARL OF • DOUGLAS, THOUGH MORTALLY WOUNDED, ORDERS HIS BANNER TO BE RAISED* AS THE BEARER HAD BEEN SLAIN, AND FOR-BIDS HIS LAMENTABLE STATE TO BE MADE KNOWN TO HIS MEN, URGING THEM ON TO THE COMBAT, BY WHICH THEY DEFEAT THEIR ENEMIES AND MAKE SIR HENRY PERCY WITH MANY MORE PRISONERS. HPHE young eari of Douglas had this night performed wonders in arms. . When he was iiruck down, there was a great. crowd round him ; and he could not raffe himfelf, for the blow on his head was mortal. His men had fol-lowed him as clofeiy as they were able • and there came to him his confins, fir James Lind-fay, fir John and fir Walter Sinclair, with other knights and fquires. They found by hi? fide a gallant knight that had conftantly attended him, who was his chaplain, and had at this time ex-changed his profeffiôn for that of a valliant man at arms. The whole night he had followed the earl with his battle-axe in hand, and had by his exertions more than once repulfed the Eng-lifli. This conduct gained the thanks of his countrymen, and turned out to. his advantage* for in the fame year he was promoted %o the archdeaconry and made canon of Aberdeen* His. name was fir William de Norbenich*. To fay * William of North Berwick. See note, p. 271. «il
