1326 - The Writing of History
by Thomas de Casterford
Thomas de Casterford was born at Houghton and was a Monk at St. John's Priory, Pontefract. He came of the De Casterford family which from 1256 to 1611 was as Whitaker says "of considerable account." Thomas was a well-known historian and wrote a history of Castleford, which is referred to by Camden, the Historian - Just a few leaves of this manuscript are now left.
