The writer of this Chronicle appears to have been a citizen of London. He duly records under each mayoralty the occurrences of the year, but more especially those events which particularly relate to the City. He notes the progresses of the Royal Family, the arrival of illustrious visitors into London, the paving of Chancery, Fetter, and Shoe Lanes, the ill-doings of the 'London prentises,' the state of the weather, the general health of the City, and the principal conflagrations. The destruction of monastic relics, and the gradual changes in religious worship, the names of those who were executed and burned, fill up this catalogue of interesting and curious events. When we remember that, in those days hanging, burning, boiling, and quartering were of almost daily occurrence, it will not appear strange that he should tell us the names of those who died in their beds. It is to be regretted, however, that many years are so curtly dismissed with merely a mention of the names of the Mayors.
