pot of ale, containing four flaggons, with competent bread and cheese, as had of old been accustomed."


The habit of the brothers was a simple russet and black cloth garment. They were bound by their vows to be chaste and sober, temperate in diet, and to apply their revenues to the use of the poor and the sojourner. If any one had violated this rule, and was found, at his death, to be possessed of any property, he was refused the rites of christian burial, and his money was cast into the grave after him with an imprecation-"thy money be with thee to perdition!"

At the dissolution, the revenues of this house were resigned into the hands of the mayor and burgesses of Grimsby. "20 June, 34 Hen. VIII. Court held before the Maiore there. Unto ys. Cowrt Cumys. John Hatteclyffe ye. elder dyd surrender to the Maiore and his Comburgeses all suche Intrest, Clame, and Grawnte whyche he had off & in one Hospital or Spyttal Hows grawted by ye saied Maier & hys Comburgeses."* The property in Grimsby is now in the possession of Lord Yarborough; and in Weelsby, of George Robert Heneage, Esq.
