Post by mrs archer »

From Knights to Squires: the Gentry & Peerage of Towton Vol. 1, by Graham A. Darbyshire, 2008, Freezywater Publications, £6.00. (Freezywater Publications, 13 Rochester Drive, Lincoln LN6 0XQ).

This small fact-filled paperback by the Secretary of Towton Battlefield Society is an extremely useful gazetteer of named individuals known to have fought at Towton: the peerage (Nevilles, Bygods, Beauforts and Percys), local gentry and men-of-war on the Lancastrian and Yorkist sides. A second volume including the royal families is scheduled for publication in 2009. Vol. 1 is available through the Lance & Longbow Society, www.lanceandlongbow.com
