Chronicon Domini Walteri De Hemingburgh, Vulgo Hemingford Nuncupati, Ordinis Sancti Augustini Canonici Regularis, in Coenobio Beatae Mariae De Gisburn, De Gestis Regum Angliae (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Chronicon Domini Walteri De Hemingburgh, Vulgo Hemingford Nuncupati, Ordinis Sancti Augustini Canonici Regularis, in Coenobio Beatae Mariae De Gisburn, De Gestis Regum Angliae Wherefore, being encouraged by the reward of his merits (although merit, in itself sufficiently excellent, needs not additional splendour from other objects), he proceeded in the course on which he had entered, pressing forward with great earnestness to the attainment of the higher honours of sacred theology; in which when he had pursued, and not unsuccessfully, a long career, an ardent desire seized his mind of leav ing to posterity a History of England; there fore, happily commencing from William the Nor man, he studiously compiled a history of the affairs of England to the time of Edward I. For this History I made anxious search at Gis borough, but without success. I once saw a copy in the library at Wells. His other writ ings are nowhere to be found. He lived in the reigns of Henry the Third and Edward his son; and died at Gisborough, where he was buried.
