STORY OF BISHOP WEARMOUTH.

whose uncle offered to adopt him, changed his name when a youth from Story to Storey. It is not unlikely that he was a member of the same branch of Storeys as that to which Mr. John Storey, J.P., of Carradice, belongs.

There is a memorial window within the ancient church of St. John, Newcastle-on-Tyne, at the foot of which are these words:-

"TO THE GLORY OF GOD AND IN DUTIFUL AND AFFECTIONATE REMEMBRANCE |
OF WILLIAM STORY MANY YEARS A COUNCILLOR FOR THIS WARD | WHO
DIED JUNE 22ND 1843 AGED 49 YEARS + THIS WINDOW IS ERECTED | BY
HIS WIFE AND SURVIVING CHILDREN ANNO DOMINI 1856."

In 1842 Edward Story, John Burrell and William Fairbridge, Churchwardens of St. John's Church, gave a silver chalice to the said church. On a brass inserted in an altar tomb, the following commemoration appears:-

    "Sacred to the memory of Edward Story, House Carpenter, died September 15th, 1784, aged 42 years.

    Grace Story, his daughter, died September 29th, 1777, aged 9 years.

    Hannah Storey, his wife, died March 27th, 1803, aged 66 years.

    Thomas Thomson, died April 1st, 1828, aged 81 years.

    John Hunter, died February 2nd, 1831, aged 27 years.

    Eleanor Benson Hall, died May 7th, 1831, aged 54 years.

    Catherine Story, wife of Edward Story, millwright, died August 7th, 1835, aged 55 years.

    Edward Storey, millwright, died November 6th, 1838, aged 65 years.

    Johannah Story, daughter of the above Edward and Catherine Story, died March 10th, 1839, aged 30 years.

THE STORYS, STORIES OR STOREYS AND THEIR ASSOCIATION WITH LIDDESDALE,
ESKDALE AND THE DEBATEABLE LAND.

It is now time to pass on to the association of the Story or Storey family with what is known as the Debateable Land and also to the "Border Papers," since by so doing the causes will become more apparent as to the peregrinations and eventual branch settlements of the Stories and Storeys.

Among Border Riders, p. 124, Vol. I., is the following interesting matter:-

"1583. Within the Nyxons dwell the Nobles, Taylors, some of the Grames, and a few Storyes are hard by the howse of Bewcastell."
