Crusaders slaughter Jews in Stamford, England during the Lenten fair. In addition to being inflamed with passion for crusading, the Christians are also apparently jealous of the fact that the Jews have money and they don't.

According to one chronicler:

"They [the Crusaders] were indignant that the enemies of the cross of Christ who dwelt there should possess so much when they had not enough for the expenses of so great a journey.... considering, therefore, that they could be doing honour to Christ if they attacked his enemies, whose goods they were longing for, they boldly rushed upon them, nobody either of the inhabitants of the place or of those who had come to the fair opposing such daring persons and some even helping them."
