Walsingham, Thomas

Walsingham, Thomas

▪ English monk
died c. 1422

      English Benedictine monk and chronicler of the abbey at St. Albans (Hertfordshire).

      Walsingham continued the work of Matthew Paris (died 1259) in an attempt to provide an unbroken St. Albans narrative from the creation to his own time. The work of Walsingham is an important source for the reigns of Richard II, Henry IV, and Henry V. His Historia Anglicana (ed. H.T. Riley, 2 vol., 1862–64) covers the years from 1272 to 1422 and is a continuation of Paris' Chronica majora, which itself continues the Flores historiarum by Roger of Wendover (died 1236). Walsingham also prepared an abridged version, the Chronicon angliae, 1328–88 (ed. E.M. Thompson, 1874), as well as other works in this area. An edition entitled The St. Albans Chronicle, 1406–20 was prepared by V.H. Galbraith (1937).
