William of Newburgh

William of Newburgh, 1136?–1198?, English chronicler, monk of Newburgh, Yorkshire. He wrote the Historia rerum Anglicarum, a history of England from 1066 to 1198. Its chief value lies in the commentary on contemporary events, particularly its analysis of the causes and effects of the anarchy under King Stephen.

See the translation of the history by J. Stevenson in his Church Historians of England, Vol. IV (1856).
