1 The Priory of Mountgrace, in Cleveland, was founded so late as the year 1398, by Thomas Holland, Duke of Surrey. Every memorial of the dispersed inmates of our religious establishments is interesting.

3 Robert Aske was the chief promoter of the northern rebellion, generally termed the Pilgrimage of Grace, in 1536, the object of which was the re-esta blishment of such monasteries as, being under the yeariy value of £200, had a few months before been dissolved by act of parliament. The rebellion was soon suppressed, and Aske was pardoned. We have here an affectionate bequest to him by one who was grateful to him for his exertions, although they had been unsuccessful.

1 John Carr, of Hetton, in the parish of Chatton, and father of Thomas Carr, who, by his marriage with Elizabeth Heron, grand-daughter and heir of Sir William Heron, of Ford Castle, became possessed of Ford and other large estates in Northumberland. This marriage caused much commotion. The Herons of Chipchase, Meldon, &c., pretending that the Ford estates were entailed upon male heirs, proceeded, not by law, but by open violence, to eject Carr from pos session. In a skirmish, arising out of this quarrel, Robert Barrow, Mayor of Berwick, lost his life under the walls of Ford Castle.

2 It is very probable that the Carrs of Northumberland, and the Kers of Cesford, in Scotland, were one and the same family.
