1 Thomas Spark, a monk of Durham, was constituted Suffragan Bishop of Berwick by Bishop Tunstall, under the Act 26. Henr. VIII., having previously been Prior of Holy Island. See his will hereafter.

2 These notices are valuable. Here is a will, accompanied by an inventory, both acknowledgedly in the hand-writing of the Curate of the parish. Hymers was a Durham man, and his inventory goes far to prove that he was a schoolmaster upon the island. The Reveleys were men of considerable property at Ancroft, &c., upon the main land, but within the parish.
