Twelve years later we find the Normans settled at Aversa under their Count Rainuif.
But in the view of general history Normans and Northmen must be carefully distinguished.
The Normans in England did not die out; they were merged in the existing nation.
With the rest of the north of England, Bridlington suffered from the ravages of the Normans, and decreased in value from £32 in the reign of Edward the Confessor, when it formed part of the possessions of Earl Morcar, to 8s.
Bergen-op-Zoom is a very old town, but little is known of its early history beyond the fact that it was taken by the Normans in 880.
