William of Newburgh

William of Newburgh or William the Little of Newburgh [Parvus], canon of the Augustinian priory of Bridlington in Yorkshire, was according to his latest editor born in 1136, and died probably in 1198. Of his life there is practically nothing known. His great work, Historia Rerum Anglicarum, extends nominally from 1066 to 1198, as originally written by the author; the continuation reaches to 1298.

William of Newburgh, like his namesakes of Malmesbury and of Tyre, is among the few mediaeval historians who are not mere chroniclers.
