Thin) Reverse side: Blank Narrative: SIR WALTER SCOTT, in his description of the voyage of the abbess of Whitby and her nuns to Holy Island, in the second canto of Marmion, thus speaks of them as noticing Bambrough Castle: Thy tower, proud Bambroagh, marked they there, Kingida'scastle, huealidscluae, From its tall rock look grimly down, And on the swelling ocean frown. The view which Balmer, with his usual effect, has given of Bambrough Castle from the north-west. Bambrough, which is now a small village, was a place of considerable importance during the Saxon period. King Ida, who ascended the throne of Bernicia in 559, first built a castle there, which he is said to have named Bebban-burgh, in honour of his queen, Bebba. It has been conjectured by Wallis, in his history of Northumberland, that the Keep, or great tower, is of Roman original; but Grose, with greater probability, considers it to have been built by the Normans. In 1095 Robert Mowbray, Earl of Northumberland, having rebelled against William Rufus, retired to Bambrough Castle, whither he was followed by Henry, the King's brother, and closely besieged. After the siege had continued some time, Mowbray left the castle in the charge of his kinsman Morel, who continued to defend it with great bravery. The Earl being afterwards seized at Tynemouth, where he had taken sanctuary, Henry caused him to be brought to Bambrough, and there showing him before the walls of the castle, he threatened to put out his eyes if it were not immediately delivered up—a proceeding which caused Morel to surrender the place forthwith.
