Thomas of Elmham (1364–1440?)

Thomas of Elmham. A British historian and monk, born in North Elmham, Norfolk (?), 1364; died about 1440. Little is known of him beyond the fact that he left a ‘Life of Henry V.,’ in prose and verse, and a ‘History of St. Augustine’s Canterbury Monastery,’ which is, in spite of its name, a sort of general chronicle of the kingdom.
