Upon investigation of Dr. Richard Edwards I find evidences first
leading to the fact that his mothers family recieved grants and he
himself raised in the royal household by Henry VIII and made his way at
the Court of Queen Elizabeth I. If he was a natural son of Henry VIII,
why was he murdered and by whom?

"O Death thou stoodste in dread that Edwards by his Art and wisedome
would have escapte thy shaft and fled thy furious Dart. This fear
enforste thy fist thy cursed Bow to bende, and let the fatall arrow
flie that Edwards life did ende...the chiefest of your train, (....the
man that Edwards...) by cruell death is slaine." P143

furious wise, with haste and hedlong rage to kill the flowre of all our
Realms and Phoenix of our age . The fact doth crie revenge, the Gods
repay thine bire,..." PP78-79
