Thomas Churchyard

Churchyard, Thomas, 1520?–1604, English author. In his youth he was page to Henry Howard, earl of Surrey. He spent most of his life as a professional soldier, serving in Scotland, Flanders, and France. His best-known work, the poem Shore's Wife, was contributed to the 1563 edition of the Mirror for Magistrates. Much of his work reflects his war experiences, most notably the narrative poems, Wofull Warres in Flaunders (1578) and General Rehearsall of Warres (1579).
