Hall, Edward

Hall, Edward

▪ English historian
Hall also spelled  Halle  
born c. 1498, , London, Eng.
died April 1547, Eng.

      English historian whose chronicle was one of the chief sources of William Shakespeare's (Shakespeare, William) history plays.

      Educated at Eton and at King's College, Cambridge, Hall became common sergeant of London in 1533 and undersheriff in 1535. He was also a member of Parliament for Wenlock (1529) and Bridgnorth (1542) in Shropshire. The value of Hall's great work, of which the full title is The Union of the Two Noble and Illustrate Famelies of Lancastre and Yorke (1548; 2nd ed., 1550), is very considerable for the contemporary reign of Henry VIII, and its literary quality is higher than that of most chronicles of the time.
