Excerpt from Lives of the English Saints: St. Gilbert, Prior of Sempringham

Diers; monasteries were stripped of their lands, and many a Saxon expelled from his possessions to make room for a foreigner.1 Geoffrey, the mail-clad bishop of Coutances, alone had 280 manors for his share of the spoil? A love of hunting seems to be the darling sin of our Norman monarchs, and to this William sacrificed whole villages, with their churches and in habitants. He had a summary way of increasing his forest-lands no need of planting trees, or waiting for the slow growth of oaks and beeches. There were then many woods in merry England, and he simply swept away the homes of the villagers who dwelt amongst and near them, so that the lands returned to their natural state of wilderness, and the stag couched un disturbed on the hearth of the peasants or in the long fern where once was the altar of the village church. But the greatest blot on William's fair fame is the ter rible depopulation of the north of England. In the depth of winter the Conqueror went forth to his fear ful revenge; he stalked on boldly over mountains covered with snow and frozen rivers; the horses dropped down dead with fatigue under his knights, but still he pressed on. The aged archbishop of York died of grief at the approach of these miseries, and the bishop of Durham with the relics of St. Cuthbert ?ed before him. Behind him was famine and pestilence, and a hundred thousand men are said to have perished. He left not a village standing between York and Durham.3.
