Source notes

Marginal note: "Yorkeshire". Italics as in printed text. I have silently omitted hyphens that occur at line endings. The chapter in which this passage is found does not occur in the 1577 edition of Holinshed's Chronicles.

Readers wishing to look up passages cited on IRHB in the original editions should be careful to note the book and chapter names etc. cited in IRHB's source references. The collations of the 1577 and 1587 editions of Holinshed are unusually confused, some sequences being paginated, some having leaf numbers, some neither. Note also that although the 1577 edition is in four volumes and that of 1587 in six, they were often bound (issued?) in two, respectively three, volumes. This is often reflected in PDFs of early editions.
