116 ANN AXS OF ROGER DE HOTEDEN. Α.ο . 1189. However, on the bishop of Durham and Hubert Fitz-Walter making complaint as to this illegal conduct on the part of the canons, the duke gave orders that all things relative to the church of York should be in the same state as they were on the day on which his father had been living and dead ; and accordingly the ecclesiastical rights of the archbishopric returned into the hands of Hubert Fitz-Walter and his deputies as before, while the secular benefices of the said archbishop returned into the charge of the servants of the duke. In the same year, Geoffrey, bishop of Ely, departed this life at "Winchester, on the twelfth day before the calends of September, and being carried to Ely was buried there ; on which duke Eichard took possession of all his treasures. The said duke also sent his bishops, earls, and barons to all the treasuries of the king, his father, and caused all the treasures found, consisting of gold and silver, to be counted and weighed ; the number and weight of which it would be tedious to mention, inasmuch as this amount of treasure far exceeded in tale and weight one hundred thousand marks. After this, he sent his servants and bailiffs throughout all the seaports of England, Normandy, Poitou, and others of his lands, and caused the largest and best of all the ships to be selected for himself, which were able to carry large freights, and then distributed some of them among those of his friends who had assumed the cross for the purpose of setting out for Jerusalem, while the others were reserved for his own use. The duke then came to London, the archbishops, bishops, earls, and barons, and a vast multitude of knights, coming thither to meet him ; by whose consent and advice he was consecrated and crowned king of England, at Westminster, in London, on the third day before the nones of September, being the Lord's Day and the feast of the ordination of Saint Gregory, the pope (the same being also an ./Egyptian day51), by Baldwin, archbishop of Canterbury, who was assisted at the coronation by Walter, archbishop of Bouen, John, archbishop of Dublin, 'PormaBs, archbishop of Treves, Hugh, bishop of Durham, Hugh, bishop of Lincoln, Hugh, bishop of Chester, WiBiam, bishop of Hereford, WiBiam, bishop of S 1 Egyptian days were unlucky days, of which there were said to be two in each month. It is supposed that they were so called from an ^Egyptian superstition, that it was not lucky to bleed or begin any new work on those days.
