The principal original historical authorities for the period to which the following narrative relates are, I. The Second Continuation of the History of Croyland*: II. Fabyan's Chronicle: III. An English Chronicle from which there are large extracts in Leland's Collectanea: IV. The Anglica Historia of Polydore Vergil: and V. The Memoires of Philip de Comines: to these is now added, in the following narrative, a sixth authority, of greater value than any of them.
The Continuator of the History of Croyland is one of the best of our English Historians of the class to which he belongs. His name is unknown, but it appears in his work that he was a Doctor of Canon Law, was one of Edward the Fourth's Councillors, and was employed by that monarch upon a foreign mission.
