Most Graciovs Sovehaigni, 

iLthough I thinke not the meane fruit of my 
Studies worthy fo great a Patron, as your 
Selfe, (yet after fiftic yeares labour and expe- 
rience i Now treating of Nobilitie,Honour, 
and Afmes , which are deriued from the 
Fountainc of Royall authoritie of Kings and 
Princes, and being hereunto partly lead by 
vertuc of my Office of a HerauM, wherein I 
haue ferued your CMa]eftiz_j , and the late 
Quecnc Elizabeth of famous memoric,thele 
fortic yeares, and more) I held it myboun- 
den dude, thus much at leaft (by humble 
Preface) to intimate vnto your Highncjji_j, that here I difcouer and re- 
forme many things heretofore groflely miftaken, and abufed by ignorant 
perfonsi who venturing beyond their owne element and skill to write of 
this fubieft, haue (hewed thcmfelucs more bold and bufie , then skilfull in 
Herauldric, and haue thereby fo troubled the cleare Fountayne of Hono- 
rable Titles and Defcents, that true Nobilitie is greatly blemifhed and ob- 
fcured thereby. For the amendment and preuention of thefe and the like 
abufes hereafter , I moft humbly pray a reformation, and that Vpftarts 
and Mountebankes within this our profeffion , may bee prohibited to 
make their profit and credit, vpon the difcrcdit and impoueriflaing of 
your CMajefties poore Scruants the Officers of Armes f who labour daily, 
and fpend both their bodies and fubftance, faithfully to preferue and 
kecpcinRegifter, the Defcents and Achiucmcnts of the Nobilitie and

To the Honourable and iudicious 
Reader. 

; Ou haue here afecond Edition of this Beoke , which, 1 haue 
not onelymuch inlarged,with diuers good Notes, and Re- 
cords, omitted in the former Imprefton j But Amended al- 
I fo, many efcapes,and miftakings, committed by the Prin- 
ter, whil/t my fukneffe abfented me from the Prejfe , at the 
| fir ft publication. 

Too ft flips hauegiuen my enuious Dctrafrers occafion to 
carpe at my labours : again ft which, I hope, they fhall now haue no ju(l caufe of 
exception. But howfoeuer, lam perfwaded that ettery peaceable-minded Rea- 
der, who is able to judge things of this nature, will eafily perceiue , thatthey 
are but friuoulous Cauillers , who Jhall feeke to traduce my labours on this 
fubjetl. 

x^iboue fftie yeares practice, I haue had in this Profefion : During which 
time, I haue omitted no cojl, nor oportunitie tovnderfiand the truth of theft 
particulars 1 treat of. Neither haue I beene guiltie of fo much enuying any 
family, tofalfifie ought, toihedifhonour of it: nor found fo much bountie in 
this Age, as {in any meafure) to reward my long trauatles ; much leffe , to bet 
hyred to infert ought vntruc,for the honour of particular Houfes. And there- 
fore, as in rejpecl of my long experience, and great p nines, it is not likely, that 
young Nouiccs can be eafily able to dijproue me : So, it is not probable (nor ha- 
uing,nor needing a bribe from any man) that 1 would to no purpofe, in this 
my old age, endanger my credit, and make vaine, all my labour, by leauing to 
pojleritie a Catalogue ofvntruthes. 

if you weigh from what vncertayne intelligences , many men doe now a- 
dayes, gather their Notes ; How much they take vp on trust to others credites^ 
How frequently they are deceiued in the Names, Beginnings, and Titles of 
Noble Families, becaufe they haue not alwayes Records to make good what they 
deliuer : you would graunt that it were nojlrange matter , for an ancient He- 
rauld, to fet forth thofe things which may appear e vntrue to fuch, asmijfe- 
cenfure all men, who affirme not , just that , which their orene few papers in- 
forme them of. For my owne part, I haue reafon to thinke my felfe afwellfur- 
nijhed to per forme this worke with as much exactnefft as an other man-, ha- 
tting gotten into my cuflodie the collections ofmoji the principall Heraulds 
deceafed before, and during my time (and without Oflentdtionbee itjpoken) 
hold my Librarie better furn/Jhed t hen the Office ofArmes. %^4nd if I haut 
failed in fome things (which is not impofiblt in fuch ataskeas this) thofe who 
will goe about to cenfuremee , jhall faile in many more material! points when- 
foeuer they vndertake the like imployment. 

Seeing 



To The Reader 

Seeing then, all contradictions, are net to be reeeiucd as vndenyable truths 
(and forafmuch, as I neither haue, nor look e for, other recommence of my tra~ 
uailes,faue onely, your fauour -able cenfures) I dejire, that if my Detraftors, 
/hall hereafter , continue their calumniations ; you would be pleafed; Firft, 
to compare our experiences \ Secondly, to obfetue my intent in writing, with 
theirs in cauelling; Thirdly, toe onceiue, how muchmore painefull it is , to 
compile a laborious Volume, then to carpe at it. And when you haue fo done, 
I make no doubt of your approbation, fo far forth as 1 Jhall defer uts.

twenty fourth day of February after, he with his 
Queene lfabell y were crowned at VVeftminftcr, 
by Henry Bifhop of Winchcftcr. Hee caufed 
Walter de Langton , Bifhop of Couentry and 
Lichfield, and Lord Treafurer of England, to be 
arretted by Sir lohn Felton , Conftable of the 
Towtr of London , and fent to VVallingford, 
there to be kept prifoner, and his goods to bee 
confifcate, andgiuen to PieresofGaue/lo»,\vh\ch 
Pieres being before banifhed England by the faid 
Bifhopsmeanes, was now fent for and receiued 
againe into molt high fauour,and made Earle of 
Cornwall , his principall Secretaric, and ,Lord 
Chamberlaine. By whofe company and fociety, 
he was fodainly corrupted; whereby he neglefted and difdained the good 
counfell and company of his Nobility, giuing himfclfe to wanton nes,paf- 
fing his time in voluptuous pleafure, and riotous exceffe. And tohelpe 
this matter forward, Pieces furnifhed the Court with Iefters, Ruffians, 
flattering parafites, and other vile and naughtic rybalds , that the King 
might fpend both dayes and nights in iefting, playing, banquctting, and 
other fuchdifhonourablecxercifes. And toaduancethofelikevnto him- 
felfe,he procured for them honourable Offices and preferments.alf w hich 
greatly encreafed the hatred of the Nobility, and the more , in regard of 
his high and haughty cariagc of himfelfe. Beeing now advanced to ho- 
nour, he would not once yeeld an inch to any; which procured him great 
enuyamongft the cheifeft Peeres of the Realme: namely. Henry Lacy, 
Earle of Lincolne; Guy, Earle of Warwicke;and Aimer ick de Valence JtLzrlc 
ofPenbroke, the Earle of Arundell, and others; whovpon fuch wrath 
and difpleafure as they had concerned againft him, thought it not meet to 
fuffer the fame any longer; in hope that the Kings minde might haply be 
altered to better purpofe,if the corrupter thereof were once banifhed from 
him. 

Hereupon they nfTembled together in a Parliament time, at the Newc 
Temple in London, and there agreed,that the faid Pieres fhould dcpart,6c 
be banilhed the Realme againe the fecond time; & not to returnc againe at 
anytimeafter. Tfe this the King ( but fore againft his will) agreed, and 
made his Letters Patents tothefaid Lords, to witneffe the fame: and the

fhould aide, helpe, or maintaine him. Whereupon Pieres was conftrained 
to (hip himfelfe at Briftow for Ireland.thoughToreagainft the Kings will, 
threatning the Lords tobereucnged. But not long after, Pieres returned 
againe into England, and came to the King at Yorke; at whole comming 
the King greatly reioyced; and lying in the Bilhops Pallace, caufed Pieres 
to be lodged in the Caftle, not farrc from him. 

Not long after,the King was willing(forhis recitation) to take the Sea, 
leauing Pieres of Gaucfton at Yorke. The Barrons purfued Gaucfton,who 
fledde to Scarborough, where the Barrons tookc him,and carried him to 
a place called Blacklow, and there the ninth of Iunc, caufed his head to be 
ftrickenoff. Afterwards, the young Prince, theQueene and Nobilitie, 
finding fault with the two Spencers ( Hugh the Father, and Hugh the Son, 
for mifleading and abufing the King and State.in like manner asGauefton 
had done) caufed themlikewifeto be taken and put to death, with out any 
triall or anfwer. Which done, the Queen with her Son and the Nobility, 
called a Parliament, wherin King Edward was iudged not worthy to beare 
or weare the Crowne;but(for diuers caufes)was to be depofed,and Prince 
Edward his Sonne, to be chofen in his place. This being agreed on, King 
.E^TW^beeing all this while prifoner in Kenihvorth Caftle ,was taken 
and carried from thence by night, to Corffe Caftle, and from thence to 
Barkeley Caftle, wherehe was moft cruelly murdered, by Thomas Cornej, 
and lohn Mahreuers, and others his keepers. He was depofed the twentic

that if they did aflume that Title of Honour , it was 
done more vpon their owne wills, then by any iuft title 
or right they had to the fame: but fee more of this in

affirmed, That they were defended of Honourable and Noble Families, and 
fo were not the Spirituall Barons. Which matter being well vnderftood,

M. Camden in his Britannia, page 469. affirmctb,That this Michael de 
la Pole, Earle of Suffolke, was a Marchant of Hull, and fonne to William 
de la Pole, Marchant and Maiorof Kingfton vpon Hull; That hec was 
borne of meanc Parentage , and that King Edward the third did make 
him a Banneret ; which I hold to be very vntrue : for it was William de 
la Pole,xbis Michael Vncics fonne (theymeane) that was the Marchant 
of Hull, and which did leaue his Paternall Coat of Armes,to bearc Azure 
twobarres wauie Argent (asa token of his imployment at Sea.) And 
for further proofe hereof, this Michael was a Knight of the Garter; which 
hec could not hauc beene at that rime, by the Statutes of that Order, 
had hee not beene a Gentleman of three Difcents (as hee was;) for his 
father and grand-father were both Knights. And that it was not this 
Michael de la Pole, but William his father, which King Edward the third 
made a Bannerer, thefe Letters Patents following will teftifie.

Duke of Aquitaine, &c. Know you, that when our faith full andxtelbeloued
