having come into the possession; and, indeed, the date ascribed to them is subsequent to that which is assigned to her death; but a portion of the lands of Earl Sigeline, her father, who is called Lord of Meopham, Cowling, and Leanham, continued in its Chartulary, and the paramount manor of Monkton, in Thanet, placed the whole of that İsland (the endowment of the Abbey of Minster, which was afterwards transferred to that of St. Augustine, already comprehending one half of its extent) in the hands of the Church. In recording this last gift, it is only reasonable to observe, that the fertility of that district, which the Monks were pleased to represent as a blessing upon the spot which afforded the first shelter to Augustine, may, with better foundation, be ascribed as the blessing of God upon

those labours which were carried on under the direction of the ecclesiastics, in the clearing of woods, the draining of fens, and the reclaiming of land from the sea. Indeed, whilst we deplore the fabric of superstition which they reared, it would be uncandid to suppress the acknowledgment due to the superior intelligence displayed by them in mechanics, in agriculture, and in all the ordinary affairs of life.

In the history of the arts, Dunstan could hardly escape honourable mention ; but the Church is scandalized by his canonization. He died at the age of 64, in the year 988, and his relics constituted a source of wealth both to the Cathedral of Christ Church, and to the Abbey of Glastonbury, whose rival claims were prosecuted with indiminished warmth even to the eve of the Reformation ; that Abbey, of which he had been the “ nursing father," claiming to have rescued them from the smouldering ruins of the ancient Church, when Canterbury was destroyed by the Danes, in 1011, and Warham disclosing the shrine to which they had been translated by Lanfranc.
