(b. 1095; d. about 1142). “Gesta Regum Anglorum,” “Historia Novella,” “Gesta Pontificum,” etc., in the “Scriptores post Bedam,” edited by Sir Henry Saville. Of the first two, there is an edition by Sir Duffus Hardy, published in 1840 for the Historical Society. An English translation by the Rev. John Sharpe, issued in 1815, formed the basis of that made by Dr. Giles, which is included in Bohn’s “Antiquarian Library” (1847). See also Morley’s “English Writers,” vol. iii.   1
