This enormous and definitive work on the Englishman Amos Burn assembles and analyses all extant games and provides a thorough biography of the famous chess master of the 19th and early 20th centuries. It chronicles in exceptional detail the broader picture of chess development throughout that era. Burn was active for a long time, winning victories over such masters as Blackburne, Marshall, Steinitz his mentor , Alekhine, and Zukertort.
He was a fighting player who relished tactical battles against his more romantic rivals but was also one of the world's best defensive players. He made a number of valuable discoveries in such openings as the Queen's Gambit Declined and the Ruy Lopez, and even today his name remains associated with a variation of the French Defence. Burn's life is painstakingly traced from his birth on the last day of to his death of a stroke at age The great international tournaments in which he took part are paid particular attention, with extensive quotation of notes by Burn himself and his contemporaries.

The statement that Edward the Third founded a religious house at Greenwich in appears to rest on no authority. Francis of a piece of ground which adjoined the palace at Greenwich, and on which they had begun to build several small mansions, was confirmed in by a charter of Henry the Seventh, who founded there a convent of friars of that order, to consist of a warden and twelve brethren at the least; and who is said to have afterwards rebuilt their convent from the foundation.
The friars of Greenwich were much favoured by Katherine, queen of Henry the Eighth; and when, during the question of her divorce, they had openly espoused her cause, the king was so greatly enraged that he suppressed the whole order throughout England. The convent at Greenwich was dissolved in Queen Mary reinstated them in their possessions, and new-founded and repaired their monastery. To postell vpon a kyry ] i.

Skelton has the term again in his Garlande of Laurell , v. Compare Hoccleve;. The slender accounts of it that have reached our times, ascribe its origin to Bertram de Bulmer, an English Baron, who is recorded by Camden to have built it in the reign of King Stephen, A.
From the Bulmers it descended by marriage to the noble family of the Nevilles, and continued in their possession upwards of years, through a regular series of reigns, until seized by Edward iv. In , in consequence of the death of Richard at the Battle of Bosworth Field, it became the property of King Henry vii. The Castle and Manor were subsequently granted also by King James, according to Camden, and the original grant confirmed by Prince Charles after he ascended the throne to the family of the Ingrams, about , and are now in possession  of their lineal descendant, the present Marchioness of Hertford.

From this Survey it will appear evident, that the Castle was dismantled and almost in total ruin in the time of James I. From the present appearance of the ruins, it is plain that the Castle was purposely demolished and taken down by workmen, probably under an order from the Crown, in whatever reign it might happen, and not destroyed by violence of war. However, since this devastation by human hands, the yet more powerful and corroding hand of Time has still further contributed to its destruction The Castle stands upon a rising bank or eminence in front of the village, and its ruins may be seen on every side at a great distance.
The vast forest of Galtres formerly extended nearly all round Sheriff-Hutton. When Skelton wrote the present poem, Sheriff-Hutton Castle was in possession of the Duke of Norfolk, to whom it had been granted by the crown for life: see note on v. Encraumpysshed ] i.
