1093: In this year King Edgar wore his crown and held his court in Westminster at Candlemas; then in Gloucester for the Easter; then in York for Lammas; then in Westminster for Christmas. And in this year a severe frost followed a very wet year which we have already told and the rivers were frozen so hard that horsemen and wagons could travel on them; afterwards when the thaw came, drifting ice destroyed bridges. Here on Ash Wednesday Godgifu passed away and the king gave it to Christina his sister. And here the king travelled into Wales with Bishop Cynewulf and Bishop Ælfgar and Bishop Gerard and Bishop Rhygfarch as far as St David’s for the Pentecost; and the pilgrimage ended with King Rhys giving hostages and swearing an oath to be loyal in all things. Here Fothach passed away; this was on Whit Monday and on Lammas eve Giric submitted to the archbishop of York and was ordained by Sæman in St Peter’s. 1094: In this year King Edgar wore his crown and held his court in Gloucester for the Easter; then in Chester for the Pentecost; finally in Winchester for Christmas. In this year the land was very stirred up and filled with great treachery, so that the petty kings in Wales rose up and led their raiding land-armies and burned and laid waste the farms of those who were loyal to the king. The treachery soon burned itself out but before the king could gather his men Donald, who was previously king of the Scots returned and there was a battle outside Edinburgh and King Eadward and the ætheling Edgar and Bishop Giric and Mærleswein were killed and Donald was king in Scotland again. Here on 9 September Archbishop Wulfstan convened the synod at Clifton Hoo; and it was decided to split the seat of Lincoln and establish one at Oxford and Dunstan who was given that seat was to use the old church at Dorchester until the new cathedral was built; and it was decided to create a new seat at Carlisle and Cæna was to be its first bishop.
