Savez s'il y a chez les Basques de France quelques chauds defenseurs de leur nationalite ? Si vous en connaissez, vous pouvez me donner quelques nonis, avec adresses, pour que je leur envoie rna brochure. Ma sante est chaque annee un peu plus mauvaise ; et je suis force de me resigner a ne plus faire presque rien. Votre bien de>ou6, H. GAIDOZ.

The many friends of M. Gaidoz in the British Empire will hope that his health will not grow worse. E. S. DODGSON.

THE LORD'S PRAYER IN THE TWELFTH CENTURY (9 th S. x. 445, 496). With re- ference to the poetic version quoted by MR. A. C. JONAS under this heading, I should like to know whether a twelfth- century prose translation of the Lord's Prayer is known, and, if so, where it can be found. An exact copy of the text would still more oblige one to whom many books are inaccessible. M. BASSE.

BARNWELL PRIORY, CAMBRIDGE (9 th S. x. 488). The introduction to Mr. John Willis Clark's book, 'Observances in use at the Augustinian Priory at Barnwell,' 1897, describes the buildings so far as known, and gives a ground-plan drawn by Mr. St. John Hope. " The excavations undertaken in 1886 were extremely disappointing " (p. xxvii).

BRASSES IN KIRKLEATHAM CHURCH (9 th S. x. 305). MR. HOOPER says of one inscription in allusion, I presume, to the fact that the age is given in years, months, and days "The age is evidently stretched out to fill in the whole space of the plate." I do not think this inference is at all warranted. It was the custom in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries to give the age in years, months, and days. This is the case in nearly all the Dutch monumental inscriptions in Ceylon, and the custom was continued in British times. J. P. LEWIS.

FlTZALAN OF ARUNDEL (9 th S. X. 427). The

query of F.R.C.S. possesses some interest for me, because Elizabeth and Margaret Fitzalan were two of the coheiresses of the manor of Tyburn, the descent of which I have taken some trouble to work out.

1. The pedigree of the Lenthalls is a little puzzling. According to that given in 'The Visitation of Devon, 1620,' published by the Harleian Society, vol. vi. p. 169, the lady who married Sir Thomas Cornewall, Baron of Burford, was the daughter (and not the granddaughter or great-granddaughter) of the Sir Rowland Lenthall who married for his first wife Margaret Fitzalan. In this pedigree she is called Agneta, and not

Elizabeth. But I cannot vouch for the accuracy of this pedigree, for it gives no issue to Sir Rowland by his second wife, Lucie, daughter, and eventually coheiress, of Richard, Baron Grey of Codnor, K.G. (ob. 1418), by his wife Elizabeth, daughter and coheiress of Ralph, Baron Basset of Sapcote (ob. 1378). By this lady Sir Rowland Lenthall had a daughter 'Catherine, who married William la Zouche, Baron Zouch of Haryng worth and Baron St. Maur jure matris (ob. 1468) ; and owing to failure of heirs of Henry, Baron Grey of Codnor, grandson of Ralph, the baronies of Grey of Codnor and a moiety of that of Basset of Sapcote fell into abeyance between the descendants of Lucie Grey, the wife of Sir Rowland Lenthall, and her sisters, Elizabeth, who married John Zouche, of Codnor, and Eleanor, who mar- ried Thomas Newport, whose present repre- sentative is the Earl of Bradford.

2. The Barony of Burford seems to have been merely a titular distinction, and not a peerage which gave its possessor a right to a seat in Parliament. The last Baron of Burford was Francis Cornewall, whose daughter and heiress Anne Maria (ob 1741) married George Legh, of High Legh, co. Chester. Through this marriage the Corne- wall-Leghs became heirs-general of the old Barons of Burford. From Sir Rowland Cornewall, the younger son of Sir Thomas Cornewall and Agneta or Elizabeth Lent- hall, the Cornewalls of Delbury, co. Salop, derive their descent.

3. I have every reason to believe that Elizabeth Fitzalan left no issue by her third husband, Sir Gerard Ufflete. I should, how- ever, be glad of any information, based on contemporary authority, which may be given with reference to the descendants of Elizabeth Fitzalan and her sisters.


TENNYSON AND KINGSLEY (9 th S. xi, 8). 1 do not suppose Tennyson was alluding to Kingsley's refrain, but rather that they were both independently alluding to the same phenomenon, namely, the moaning of Bideford Bar, which can be heard for many miles inland. It generally takes place in calm or almost calm weather, and is due to the " ground sea" resulting from a distant gale in the Atlantic. BASIL HALL.

"FROM THE LONE SHIELING " (9 th S. X. 64).

Quite six months ago I read in a London newspaper the announcement of a forth- coming volume of " exile " poems, compiled, if my memory is accurate, by a John Macleay. I have made some fruitless inquiries respect-
