learn) of opposing, or grudging at their introducing foreign Jurisdiction, insomuch, that contrariwise we reade, that Irish Princes and Prelats promoted their foreign advancement, by their influence on the Prelats of Canterbury, and commendation of the persons elected in order to their consecration; as may appear by the letters extant (in Usserii Sylloge veterum Epittolar. HUfr) ofTordelvac O'Brian K. of the Southern moyty of Ireland, and of his son and successour Murchertach, both styled Kings of Ireland, and of Ferdomnach Bishop of Kildare and Metropolitan of Leinster (before Dublin was so erected A° 1152). But never a Bishop of any other See in Ireland, nor even of those Ostman Sees, except five of Dublin, the first Bishop of Waterford, and one of Limerick in Archbishop Theobald's time, that ever owned consecration, and canonical obedience to the See of Canterbury.

"York was the Metropolitan see of Scotland till the year of Grace 1471, by which title if Canterbury was the Metropolitan of Scotland is beyond my sphere to dispute, but was no more Metropolitan of Ireland than as Edgar K. of England was conquerour of Ireland Ac 964, by letters patent dictated by his secretary; conscious to none els of his time: or as all the learning and sanctity of Ireland abolished by the descent of Egfrid K. of Northumberland's ffleet in Ireland Ac 684, as Cambden thought, de quibus videsis Ogygiam pag: 39 & pag: 230. Nay Wales nearer home than Ireland was not under the Jurisdiction of Canterbury before the year 1187, in K. Hen. ii' reign, Baldwin being then Archbishop of Canterbury.

"Lastly, I cannot but arraign Doctor Hanmer's partial judgement and forgetfull memory, who saw in his own dayes (A° 1604 deceas'd) Matthew Parker Dean of Lincoln installed Archbishop of Canterbury, by William Barlow Prior of Bisham, John Scory, and Miles Coverdale; and Parker without a stich of a Pall's cross investing 22 Bishopps of as many cathedralls: of which number Barlow was made Bishop of Chichester and Scory of Hereford (Bakers Chronicle in Q. Elizabeth, A° 1559), and yet could not digest, that Irish Bishops in the primitive times of their sanctity, could confer Episcopal orders without one of 'em shouldering a Pall on brest and back.

"In Dr. Chamberlain's 8 chap: Notitise Angl" by the vast number of Scotish KK. and wast time of their 2000 years continuance, I attribut his mistake to his adhering unaware to the modern Scotish stories. In the same chapter I observe his omission of K. James's long line of extraction from the KK. of Ireland, of whom in a direct masculin line, not controverted, he sprung. Videsis Ogygiam passim, the Genealogy of K. Alex. iii. William Slatyr's Palse- Albion, etc.
