I Thomas Sparke, a Monk of Durham-of Durham College, Oxford-B. D. 1 March, 1528-9.-Prior of Holy Island-Suffragan Bishop of Berwick upon Tweed, under Tunstall, Bishop of Durham, in 1537, by the act 26 Henry VIII. consecrated by Lee, Archbishop of York, in the same year-Master of Gretham Hospital, in 1541-First Prebendary of the third stall in Durham Cathedral, in May, 1542-Rector of Wolsingham in 1547. His will, which is printed at length in RAINE'S NORTH DURHAM, p. 128, and which is of a very interesting nature, makes provision for his burial in Durham Cathedral, in front of the altar at which he had officiated when a Monk; but Chambre, the Durham Historian, states that his steward and executor sold the marble slab, which the Bishop had, in his life-time, prepared for the purpose of covering his remains, to one of the Prebendaries, and buried his master at Gretham. For other particulars relative to Bishop Sparke, whose name has so often occurred in the preceding pages, the reader is referred to the History of NORth Durham.
