Event ASC (C-F) 1042-1087  CDE 1055   MS C: There was a council at London, and Earl Ælfgar 46, son of Earl Leofric 49, was outlawed without any guilt; and he then went to Ireland and there got himself a fleet – it was 18 ships apart from his own – and then they went to Wales to King Gruffudd 1 [ap Llewelyn] with that force, and he took him into his protection. And then they gathered a large force with the Irishmen and with the Welsh, and Earl Ralph 1 gathered a large force against them at Hereford town, and there battle was joined. But before any spear was thrown the English army fled because they were on horseback, and many were killed there – about four or five hundred men – and they killed none in return. And then they went back to the town and burnt it with the glorious minster which Æthelstan 64 the venerable bishop had had built. They stripped and robbed it of relics and vestments and everything, and killed the people and some they carried off. Then a force was collected from very nearly all over England, and they came to Gloucester, and went a little way out into Wales, and stayed there for some time. And Earl Harold 3 had a ditch made about the town during that time. Then meanwhile peace was discussed and Earl Harold 3 and those who were with him came to Billingsley and there confirmed peace and friendship between them. And Ælfgar 46 was reinstated and given all that had been taken from him, and the fleet went to Chester and there waited for their pay which Earl Ælfgar 46 promised them. This slaughter was on 24 October.

MS D: Earl Ælfgar 46, Earl Leofric 49’s son, was outlawed, having committed hardly any crime. But he went to Ireland and Wales and got himself a large force and so came to Hereford. But Earl Ralph 1 came against him with a large force, but after a little struggle this was put to flight and many people killed in the flight. The invaders then went to Hereford town and ravaged it, and burnt the glorious minster which Bishop Æthelstan 64 had built, and killed the priests inside the minster and many others as well, and captured all the treasures and took them away. And when they had done the greatest damage, it was decided to reinstate Earl Ælfgar 46 and give him his earldom, and all that had been taken from him. This devastation happened on 24 October.

MS E: Earl Ælfgar 46 was outlawed because he was charged with being a traitor to the king and to all the people of the country. And he admitted this before all the people who were assembled there, though the words escaped him against his will. ... and Earl Ælfgar 46 sought the protection of Gruffudd 1 in Wales; and in this year Gruffudd 1 and Ælfgar 46 burned down St Æthelberht’s minster and all the city of Hereford.

Office WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  i.4 Cuthbert 7 held office of Bishop of the Mercians at Hereford
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  i.7.2-4   Offa 7 king of the Mercians quarrelled with the people of Kent and tried to rob Jænberht 1 of his primacy. At the same time, in his concern to give the realm of the Mercians the distinction of an archbishopric, he communicated with Pope Hadrian 3 by letters, with which, perhaps, went bribes, and prevailed upon him, against all precedent, to mark out the bishop of Lichfield with a pallium and subordinate to him all the bishops of the Mercians (their names were Deneberht 1 of Worcester, Werenberht 1 of Leicester, Eadwulf 7 of Sidnacester, Wulfheard 5 of Hereford), together with two bishops of the East Angles, Ealhheard 1 of Elmham and Tidfrith 1 of Dunwich. The bishop of Lichfield was also called Ealdwulf 13. (Of the bishoprics some have been moved, like Elmham to Norwich, some merged with others, like Dunwich with Norwich, while some no longer exist, like Leicester and Sidnacester.) But the archbishop of Canterbury retained four bishops, London, Winchester, Rochester, and Selsey. This unsatisfactory situation prevailed throughout the tenure of Jænberht 1, though he spared no expense or trouble to press the rights of his see and stamp on the greed of the usurpers.
