He had been abbot, as Bede tells us (i7. E, iii. 24), of a monastery called Ingetlingum [the place where Osuiu was slain, now Gilling, Yorkshire].
After the death of Felix, Bishop of Dunwich, in 647, Honorius, Archbishop of Canterbury, appointed Thomas, of the province of the Gyrvii, '^ to succeed him among the East Angles. Mission work in this region, however, passed soon to the Lindisfarne ^ This has not been identified. " Fobbinges" occurs (but in Essex), and the word here is a similar form
...in the locative plural. The resting-place of Diuma is given in Die Heil. Eng. , p. 11, as Ceorlingcbwh near the river Wenrisc, that is, Charlbury near the Windrush, Oxon. This river-name is doubtless Celtic and involves probably -isc «= water.
2 Gyrvii means "fen-dwellers, " "Gyrwe-fenn" is glossed "marsh", and Yarrow is given by Bede as In gyruum^ at the mouth of the Wear river, that is the marshy land at Wearmouth. For the land boundaries given in Cart. Sax. Iii, p. 203, we have *' on Gyruwan fen that eft (thence directly) on Bugla fen".
