Not illustrated. 1839 edition. Excerpt: ...27 May 1464: and the only two Earldoms bestowed in Edward's first year (and probably at the Coronation) were, the Earldom of Essex, conferred on Henry Viscount Bourchier, Earl of Eu in Normandy, who had married the King's aunt, the Princess Isabel of York; and the Earldom of Kent, conferred on VVilliam Neville, Lord Fauconberg, one of King Edward's generals at Towton. The former creaion is mentioned by Warkworth lower down in his list; the latter is omitted altogether.--J. G. N. 1. 6.--The Lord Montagu. " And then Kyng Edward, concidering the greate feate doon by the said Lord Montagu, made hym Erle of Northumberlond; and in July next folowyng th'Erle of Warwyk, with th'ayde of the said Erle of Northumberland, gate agayn the castell of Bamborugh, wheryn was taken Sir Raaf Gray, which said Ser Raaf was after behedid and quartred at York. Also, in this yere, the first day of May, the Kyng wedded Dame Elizabeth Gray, late wif unto the lord Gray of Groby, and dougliter to the Lord Ryvers."--The London Chronicle, MS. Cotton. Vitell. A.
