Excerpt from Durham Cathedral: An Address, Delivered September 24, 1879

As I proceed in my relation I shall have to bring before you a number of great figures - men, some of them of extraordinary eminence, capacity and religious zeal in their several times and places. The first of whom I have to speak is Paulinus (625-633), the great missionary of the North of England in the earliest time, who had been consecrated bishop to accompany Ethelburga, daughter of Ethelbert, king of Kent, when she was sent as bride to Edwin, king of the Northumbrians. He preached throughout the ancient kingdom of Northumbria, in which are comprised the present counties of Northumberland. Durham and Yorkshire, together with South-Eastern Scotland up to the Frith of Forth. There are several places well known to many of you where he taught and baptised, one of which, Pallinsburn, near the site of the well-known Field of Flodden, may possibly have got its name from him. The Derwent, the Eure and the Swale, in Yorkshire, and the Glen, in Northumberland, are rivers associated with his . mission, and his traditionary well at Holystone, in the valley of the Coquet, where he baptised, is familiar to most of us. He was obliged, A.D. 633, to leave the country, when, after the death of Edwin, slain in the battle of Haethfelth (Hatfield, near Doncaster), Northumbria was conquered by Penda, king of Mercia, and Cadwalla, a king of the Britons, and in a great measure relapsed, with its two kings, into paganism.
