writer's accuracy be believed in. Yet the present writer desires to be correct according to his light, and, so far from having any intention to deceive, he is himself only anxious to be instructed. Now here we have an instance of what must needs happen in a hundred cases if the evil day should ever come when all our parish registers are torn up by the roots and transplanted into the very region of a cavernous 'Oupaλós, in Fetter Lane or South Kensington. In such a central receptacle be left to be deciphered by a band of gentlemen of whom I have every reason to speak with sincere respect and gratitude, but who will, of course, be London men, and compelled, by the very nature of their studies, to be more and more exclusively London residents; the blunders such experts will make in local names will necessarily be many, and frequently be ridiculous, and with every such blunder confidence in the professional will be shaken, and, pro tanto, the spirit of the local antiquary will be taken out of him.

THE BEKS OF LINCOLNSHIRE,
In the fourth year of Edward I. (i. e., in A.D. 1276) there were at least three considerable families in the county of Lincoln, all sprung from the same stock. They traced their descent from Walter Beek, who came in with William the Conqueror, "qui habuit hereditatem suam in Flandria et habuit ex dono conquestoris Eresby et multa alia maneria." This Walter married a daughter of Hugo Pinsonne, senescallus, and had by her five sons, with three of whom only are we concerned. 1. From Henry -to whom came the manors of Eresby, Spillesby, Schriuelby, and Wisspington-were descended the Beks of Eresby. 2. From John-" qui tenuit maneria de Botheby in Kessedenene et alia duo"sprang the Beks of Botheby. 3. From Walterto whom fell the manors of Luceby, Wynceby, Neuton, Farlestowe, and Ingoldmels-sprang the Beks of Luceby.
At this point I pause. Any Lincolnshire man reading the above few lines will at once perceive that the present writer knows nothing about Lincolnshire and is an utter stranger to the placenames of that important county. The chances are that the more the present writer goes on with his narrative the more plainly will the Lincolnshire reader detect his blunders and the less will the
I. In the aforesaid year 1276, the Beks of Eresby were represented by three brothers. John, the eldest, had the estate, and that same year received from the king a licence to crenellate his manor of Eresby (Pat. Rot. 46). Thomas, the second brother, was archdeacon of Dorset, and keeper of the king's wardrobe. Antony, the third, was archdeacon of Durham, prebendary of St. Pancras, and (I think) governor of the Tower of London, besides holding one or two other preferments. Of these brothers, Thomas became in 1280 Bishop of St. David's, to which see he was consecrated on October 6-a day very memorable for the diocese of Lincoln, for then St. Hugh's body was translated to the shrine prepared for it, the expense of the ceremony being borne by Thomas Bek aforesaid. The third brother, Antony, became in 1283 Bishop of Durham and (subsequently?) patriarch of Jerusalem, and died on March 3, 1310-11, his episcopate being marked by an important dispute with John Romanus, Archbishop of York, about which much may be found in the Rolls of Parliament, and being further notorious for his pillage of the estates of the see, for the damage to which during his tenure of it his executors agreed to pay two thousand marks.
II. At the same time the Beks of Botheby were represented by John Bek, one of the jurors for the wapentake of Boby (Testa de Nev. 325), and a commissioner of sewers in the same neighbourhood (?) in the year 1284 (Abbrev. Placit. 205).
III. The Beks of Luceby were represented by Walter Bek, constable of Lincoln Castle, whom the citizens of Lincoln did not love because he had stolen from them their recreation ground, so they said, but whom his kinsman Antony, Bishop of
