Text Appearing Before Image: URY. 239 as we have already seen, had petitioned for the surveyorship of theTyne, and recompense for his services in its preservation. His claimwas referred to the judges of assize ; and the judges—Sir JohnDenham and Sir Thomas Chamberlain—in their report to the privycouncil, state that Bewick, although summoned, did not appear beforethem to plead in behalf of his petition. They found that a juryof twelve persons sat weekly to judge offences against the preserva-tion of the river; that the commissioners were diligent in the use ofprecautions against all abuses ; and that Bewick had already received100/. for his services. There was a very powerful reason for Bewicks absence from theinquiry entrusted to the judges. On the 13th July, obeying thesummons of a higher tribunal than that of king James, he was laid inSt. Nicholas church with his kindred. Two months afterwards hissecond wife, Barbara, daughter of Edward Craster, was deliveredof the fifteenth child born of his two marriages.
