IRELAND: QUEST TWENTY SIX:

Day Four: Dublin: Although sadly we never had time to see anything of the city of Dublin as such, i did manage a few quick photos whilst traveling to our designated destinations, but certainly a city to come back to and explore at leisure.

 

Driving through Dublin!

 St Andrews Church: Although we were unable to actually stop here due to location and parking challenges, we did indeed drive past and acknowledged that it is now the Central Tourist Office for Dublin! Times change, people change and the use of buildings change, but let us not be sad as it is indeed good to see the building being used and vibrant, even though not in a religious sense.

The original St Andrews Church was located on present-day Dame Street, but disapeared during Oliver Cromwell’s reign in the mid-17th century. A new church was built in 1665, a little further away from the city walls and due to its shape was commonly known as the ‘Round Church’. Thomas Dalton, Lord Chancellor of Ireland was buried here in 1730. The population of the parish in 1901 was 3,058, in 1971 it was 300. It has to be noted also that there is a high Lithuanian population here.

  • Bloodline Connections: Both Albert John Fordham (1928-1987) and John Fordham (1892) were baptised here.
  • Also connection to the Neville line.

Christ Church Cathedral/The Cathedral of the Holy Trinity: This is the cathedral of the United Diocese of Dublin and Glendalough and the cathedral of the Ecclesiastical Province of the United Provinces of Dublin and Cashel in the Church of Ireland. It is the elder of the capitals two medieval churches being founded in c.1030, the other being St Patricks Cathedral. There were extensive renovations being carried out while we were there which were tad disorientating, but the hoardings themselves were fun and very photogenic in themselves, giving an opurtunity for some colourful photography!

 

Christ Church Cathedral: There are many richly sumptuous artifacts and fine decor here, yet at the same time there are equally (or in fact more) relevant and important histotical artifacts seemingly hidden away in corners…

 

The ‘hidden’ artifacts; many of which relate directly to ‘The Neville’ bloodline; but just why would they be kept low key and mostly unmarked?

Christ Church is officially claimed as the seat (cathedra) of both the Church of Ireland and Roman Catholic archbishops of Dublin. The cathedral was founded probably sometime after 1028 when King Sitric Silkenbeard, the Hiberno-Norse king of Dublin made a pilgrimage to Rome. The first bishop of this new Dublin diocese was Dunan or Donat; the diocese was at that time a small island of land surrounded by the much larger  Diocese of Glendalough and was for a time answerable to Canterbury rather than to the Irish Church hierarchy. The church was built on the high ground overlooking the Viking settlement at Wood Quay and Sitric gave the “lands of Baldoyle, Raheny and Portrane for its maintenance.” Of the four old Celtic Christian churches reputed to have existed around Dublin, only one, dedicated to St Martin of Tours lay within the walls of the Viking city, and so Christ Church was one of just two churches for the whole city.

Right next door to the cathedral is a venue known as Dublinia; a historical recreation (or living history) museum and visitor attraction focusing on the Viking and  Medieval history of the city. Dublinia is located in a part of Christ Church Catherdral, known as the Synod Hall.

  • Bloodline connection is to the Neville line

St Patrick’s Cathedral: Dublin: On this occasion, although on our itinery, we never actually made it to St Patricks Catherdral which was some distance away; the journey had been fairly long getting to Dublin from our base that morning and still lots lay ahead. But hopefully in the future was shall be sure to visit. Please do follow the links though to read up about it:

  • Bloodline connection is to the Neville line

St Nicholas Parish Church: Dundalk: After another drive through the Irish countryside we arrived in the busy town of Dunalk in County Louth; part of the diocese of Armagh. This is a bustling and very friendly town, it’s name in Irish is Dún Dealgan, which means “Dalgan’s fort” and it is the county town of County Louth. It is on the Castletown River, which flows into Dundalk Bay, and is near the border with Northern Ireland, halfway between Dublin and Belfast, so we had travelled a fair few miles that day. It has associations with the mythical warrior hero  Cu Chulainn.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dundalk

 

St Nicholas Parish Church, sits on a busy road junction in the heart of the town, surrounded by local shops, cafes and takeaways. Again once inside it is a beautiful church with a very peaceful energy. The original church was built in the 1220’s and some parts of the church have not born the ravishes of time very well, while in other parts restoration has been carried out.

 

The interior of St Nicholas Church

A Dr. Oliver Davies, who examined all the old churches of County Louth in 1945, put the probable date of the church in the thirteenth century and considered that it was the need of a rising seaport which called for its erection. In this connection it is suggestive that St. Nicholas is the patron saint of merchant venturers by sea, and that many sea ports have churches dedicated in his name. During the troubled times of the Rebellion in 1641-50, when Dundalk was taken by assault, and of the campaigns of Schomberg and James II, 1688-90, the church fabric became sadly damaged. It was re-roofed in part in 1702, as a stone in the vestry records, when Rev. Ralph Lambert was vicar, it was “restored in a new and more elegant form.” and as is the case for so many churches restoration continued down the centuries.

 

For a parish church St Nicholas did have some rather stunning stained-glass windows

Day Five: Belfast Jewish Community: As part of the Priory teachings we endevour to gain insight and understandings of all the earthly religions; to see common threads but also differences too. The Jewish community in Belfast dates back to 1079, but this building here was built in the 1960’s; as well as a temple of prayer and service it is also a community hub. The people there were very friendly and welcoming, and to someone who’s first time this was, the ladies kindly guided and engaged me in the service which was a massive three hours long due to the time of year!

DSC06586

It is quite a big building; much bigger inside than it appears on the outside and  is decorated  in a modern style with lots of blue and light coloured wood. As expected, treasures of the religion are housed there for services, but as there was a service taking place when we visited (our reason for going) i was unable to take any photos. It has to be noted though that even in these so called enlightened times, there was a small police presence outside the building the whole time that worship was taking place.

Bloodline Connection: The Neville line

St Anne’s Cathedral: Belfast: A beautiful building with the largest Celtic Cross on the outside that i have ever seen! St Anne’s Cathedral, also known as Belfast Cathedral, is a cathedral of the Church of Ireland in Donegall Street, Belfast, Northern Ireland. It is unusual in serving two separate dioceses (Connor and Down and Dromore). A cathedral is the place where a bishop has a seat but Belfast Cathedral is unusual in having the seats of two bishops – the Bishop of Connor and the Bishop of Down & Dromore. It is the focal point of the Cathedral Quarter, Belfast.

 

The first architect was Sir Thomas Drew, the foundation stone being laid on 6 September 1899 by the Countess of Shaftesbury. The old parish church of St Anne by  Francis Hiorne of 1776 had continued in use, up until 31 December 1903, while the new cathedral was constructed around it; the old church was then demolished. The Good Samaritan window, to be seen in the sanctuary, is the only feature of the old church to be retained in the cathedral.

 

In 1924 it was decided to build the west front of the cathedral as a memorial to the Ulstermen and women who had served and died in The Great War. The foundation stone for this was laid by the Governor of Northern Ireland, the Duke of Abercorn on 2 June 1925 and the completed facade, to an amended design by the architect Sir Charles Archibald Nicholson, was dedicated in June 1927. The cathedral is very grand inside and spacious and of course very photogenic!

Bloodline Connection is that of the Neville line but we also saw a Forde reference too!

Stained-Glass Windows; the stories told: Throughout the lands of mankind, stories and myths have always been told; by scribes, by artisans, by painters, by monks in the old times, verbally by story tellers then and now, and of course by those craftsmen whom painstakingly worked on the stained-glass windows seen in churches all over our lands at certain sacred points in time. To understand the messages contained within, we have to look deep into our past history, yet not as we know it, not as we are told but of the real history, often hidden in plain-sight right there on the windows.

The windows often depict the life and death of ‘The Jesus‘, often showing him with a serpent entwined around a segment of the windows design. One would be forgiven to assume that it was a reference to the serpent of the well-known bible stories and in a way it is.  Yet it alludes to ‘The Serpent Priesthood‘; the path of the true Knight Templar. The serpent connects to freedom,  of being totally consumed by dogma; yet freedom has to be tasted within before it can be tasted without, so one (with knowledge of the Serpent Priesthood) learns over time how to control the serpent; how to be free.

The Jesus is often seen wearing the colours of the Templar (Neville) lineage, of Red and White (silver) representing blood and honour, especially in battle, with honour originating from the past monetery use of silver. Colours are never by accident; they are a very integral part of the hidden symbology and convey numerous meanings.

The lives and deeds of the saints are often depicted and of course it was St Patrick or Saint Columba here in Ireland;  a saint having a certain connection to an area will often be depicted in the local church windows, yet they are also shown in mythological  or esoteric connotations.

Of course many symbols and emblems to be found incorporated in these window designs again relate to the Neville bloodline, the Serpent Priesthood and to the Knight Templars, thus making them a fascinating source of history and thus traceble through time. But just why do these images always connect to each other in the way they do and how or why did they come to be? Enscriptions, together with Masonic and Templar symbols are very often placed strategically on the windows telling a truth without words, hidden from mankind.

The ladies in the life of the Jesus play a big part too, and if one looks closely at the windows, gender is not always what it seems to be either – or what we have been led to believe. Many artists of the day were involved in the creation of stained-glass windows, non more so than the Pre-Raphalite artists who were inexplicitly drawn towards mysticsm and knowledge. Celestial objects; the sun, stars and moon and other lesser-known planets, mean something much different in Templarism and often hold centre stage on many windows, often predicting the future times to come; yet offering a warning too. Caskets, boxes, scrolls, children and of course ‘The Lamb’ are often widely used too, as is nature and flowers, but always with a secret Craft meaning which eludes to the potions of creation.

 

.A selection of the stained-glass windows discovered in Ireland; many with messages hidden well within plain sight

So on these quests we are discovering among many things, how ancient buildings are speaking to us. The stunningly beautiful and exquisite artwork and mosaic tiles that adorn the wall and floors of many a church or cathedral is not just for the sake of the artwork alone, but also for the clues left to us, hidden ‘within stone’ of the true untold history of our country. All left for us to decipher; left for the astute truth seekers to discover and acknowledge – truly and surely a quest for the modern-day Knight…

Dan Brown did kind of have the right ‘idea’ in a very loose sense but was way, way off track with his actual facts and tellings; he had the wrong locations, the wrong churches and followed a few expertly placed red herrings, as one would. However the symbols of the past are all still here, expertly placed within plain sight for all to see, awaiting the astute to rip off their old hoodwinks and to decipher…..

These symbols do not connect to ‘modern day Christianity‘ for they hark back to a much older time, travelling through the lineages of The Knights Templars, the Free Masons, the Eastern Star, to the Egyptian Mysteries, to Ancient Sumeria and even much further back in time and beyond our world. The clues and stories have survived, yet few know of the real meanings and of the ‘placement’ of the clues in specific areas. It is truly a quest of a lifetime and most certainly beyond, and that is why we love these quests so very much!

THE PRIORY INVESTIGATES: QUEST NUMBER EIGHT

  • ST MARY’S CHURCH SNETTISHAM
  • CASTLE RISING KINGS LYNN
  • GYSPSY CORNER MOULTEN

 

ST MARY’S CHURCH SNETTISHAM: One cannot help but wonder what these three seemingly separate sites have in common with each other; yet there is a connection, a thread running through which connects to our quests so far. So here we were in Norfolk once again, starting out on Quest Number Eight, at the stunningly beautiful Templar church; known as St Mary’s Church, Snettisham. This church which in reality is more like a catherdral is mentioned in the Domesday Book compiled in 1066; but most of the ‘present’ day church dates to the period of 1300 – 1340, although there would have been a church on this site which dates back to a much earlier time in history. The spire; one of only five in Norfolk, is second only to that of Norwich Cathedral in height and is, along with the rest of the church, testiment to a much wealthier time in the history of Snettisham, when the wool trade and textile industry kept the hands of the village weavers far from idle!

TK C

Snettisham itself is a very pretty little village situated near the west coast of Norfolk, just five miles south of Hunstanton. It has a beautiful unspoiled beach where many semi-precious gemstones can be found and an abundance of wildlife. Snettisham has a complex entry in the Domesday Book, where it is divided in ownership between Wiilliam de Warenne and the Bishop of Bayeux. It is also know for the Snettisham Horde; a series of discoveries of Iron Age precious metals.

To read more see here:- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snettisham

But we were here to visit St Mary’s Church with it’s strong Templar influences that go beyond even that; connections that go deep into our unrecorded British history. We had tried to gain access to the church on a previous occasion but due to safety aspects of roof repair work being carried out, St Mary’s church was locked to us on that occasion. However we did make an introductory video to mark the occasion of our first vist. Strangely while we were lingering on the church porch inquiring over the phone, about access, another couple arrived whom informed us, had driven all the way from London to visit, and who also eagerly listened to our phone conversation. This was a strange yet not unusual happening for us as ‘co-incidences’ do tend to follow us around – see why in the video 🙂

Follow the link below to our Youtube channel and let our lead researcher give you an introduction and glimpse into this very special church’s history:

SNETTISHAM: THE KING OF TIR & A TEMPLAR CHURCH

The architecture, decorations and fittings of the church are truely amazing and do hark back to times that simply do not relate to christianity at all, but hint to many other ancient paths as you will see in this next video. The true Celtic cross with the Fleur de Lys, that connects to the King of Tir is evident for all to see in the main part of the church; a huge chandelier Merkaba (star of David) decorated with more Fleur de Lys hangs prominently in the vestry, as does a family crest relating to the ‘Neviile’ family; one of the bloodlines we are tracing. Yet most stunningly of all is the stained glass window, to the right of the vestry and along one side of the church which is under repair, is the very rare image of the King of Tir (the original Green Man) So once again we can see very many Knight Templar and Masonic symbolism here and even beyond that. Within the vestry itself i for one can attest to the fact that the magnetic energy is so powerful there, it almost knocks one off one’s feet; i was not alone in feeling this amazing power.

Photos above which show beautifully all the amazing symology and imagery in this stunning Templar church… <click to enlarge imags>

CASTLE RISING: After a brief but enjoyable visit to Snettisham beach, our next port of call was to be Castle Rising; the home of many tales, many families and royal intrigue. This castle is one of the most important twelth century castles in England. The stone keep has particularly fine arcading and embellishments on the fore building and was built around 1140 by William D’Albini to show his increased importance on his marriage to Alice of Louvian, widow of Henry 1st. The most infamous piece of history here stems from when the castle was the home (prison?) to Queen Isabella, the mother of Edward 3rd, who had a hand in the murder of her husband Edward 2nd. The records show that she was visited at the castle several times by her son Edward  3rd. Some say she went mad, some say she was in exile there, some say she is still there… Listen to what our lead researcher has to say in the next video on Castle Rising’s history and it’s tales of mystery…

A GYPSY BOY’S GRAVE:  Most folks local to the village of Moulton near Newmarket in Suffolk, know of ‘Gypsy Corner’ and can tell the sad tale of the young gypsy lad who is burried there; some may know of the gypsy curse attached to the grave site while others may not. But the mystery surounding the small burial site doe not end there and goes way deeper.

Our head researcher  will explain when you follow the link to our Youtube channel.

Conclusions of Quest Eight:

  • St Mary’s Church, Snettisham

Leading on from the previous visit; amazing to actually get inside courtessy of Peter Murray. He is an interesting chap in himself, having much hidden knowledge contained. After a conversation about burial or cremation, Peter assured that ‘we will make sure that this happens for you’. He was certainly more than just an organist.

The Vestry holds the key of the Hamilton surname linked with the Neville surname, with more important aspects of Judaism embedded within this timeless building. The lighting in the vestry is made from wood and the Hexagram ‘Star of David’, with trails around the hexagram of the Fleurs de Lys, gives tales of Judaism enshrined with Templarism. So the world at large would believe that it is the English Christian faith which guided the Templars. Clearly not correct, it was Judaism that over-stood all other beliefs and faiths.

The Celtic connection is contained within this church, spanning over 1,000 years tales to be deciphered, if only some were able to decipher such encryption.

  • Castle Rising

Evidence of Ghostly presence contained within the acoustic room within the castle itself. There is most definitely a regional hub of energy transmitting and being received at this point. Hardly surprising with Pyramid energy gathering at all crossings through this vibrant land of Castle Rising.

Particular attention must be given to the Norman Chapel which contains a sealed entrance to the underground tunnels that will reveal more to those whom seek to find.

It is of no surprise that our visit was enlightened with the presence of a protector, a Guardian of Secrets that brisked through and around us within the acoustic chamber.

  • The Gypsy Boy’s Grave

Of course most know the tale of the young man whom fell asleep and lost one of his sheep, no more than myth, where one is able to clearly identify the myth with that of ‘The Lamb of God’. The boy’s real name is Elias F born in 1828 and subsequently passed in 1841, some 13 years old. But was this boy a Gypsy and was he really guiding sheep? We must look to the meaning behind the name ‘Elias’ as this is where the Quest and the Clues originate. ‘Elias’ means ‘The Lord is my God’. It does not make reference to a God, it clearly refers to a Lord. So whom is the Lord? The Lord is connected to Snettisham Church and to that of Castle Rising. What we are permitted to reveal is that this boy has a direct connection to a Hertfordshire Banker in 1833.
