Richard Plantagenet of Eastwell (Kent)

American Branch member Anne Smith has pulled together a summary of the sources on Richard of Eastwell for the website, building upon Peter Hammond’s work in Back to Basics. Here is some background for any listmembers wanting to pass on sources, folklore and tips.

Quote from the e-mail of the gentleman who sent me the photos: “I am sending a close up of the grave. If you look at the tombstone there is a rectangular plague which reads – ‘This is reputed to be the grave of Rychards Plantagenet December 22nd 1550’ I presume he is buried underneath”.
