Hallor Halle Edward

Hall, or Halle, Edward (d. 1547), the chronicler, was born about 1498 in Shropshire, and was educated at Eton and King's College, Cambridge. He then went to London to enter upon a legal career. He become Common Sergeant in 1532, and was several times reader at Gray's Inn. Some years afterwards he entered Parliament, where, as member for Bridgewater, he supported Crown interests. His Chronicle, entitled The Union of the Noble and Illustre Families of Lancastre and York, was first printed in 1542, but this edition is very rare. In 1550 a more complete one was issued, and in 1809 a reprint was published by Sir II. Ellis.
