Excerpt from The Parliamentary or Constitutional History of England, From the Earliest Times, to the Restoration of King Charles II, Vol. 2: Collected From the Records, the Rolls of Parliament, the Journals of Both Houses, the Public Libraries, Original Manuscripts, Scarce Speeches, and Tracts; All Compared With the Several Contemporary Writers, and Connected, Throughout, With the History of T

We shall not dispute any further the Validity of any of these Titles: The strongest Arm then carried it; but there was another Person then in Being, who, after the Death of King Richard without Issue, had been publickly proclaimed Heir Apparent to the Crown. This was Edmund Mortimer, Earl of March, Son to Roger Mortimer, slain in Ireland, who was descended from Lionel Duke of Clarence, elder Brother to John Duke of Lancaster, King Henry's Father, by his Mother Phillipa, only Daughter and Heir to the said Lionel. 'And therefore, says another Historian, the said Edmund thought himself nearer Heir Male to the Succession of the Crown, as indeed he was, than he that, by Colour of Right claiming it, carried it by Dint of Sword.' But this Earl well considered that the Torrent of the Times was far too impetuous for him to withstand, and therefore wisely withdrew himself from all public Affairs to his Castle and Barony of Wigmore, in Herefordshire, where he lived a private Life for several Years: For, as a modern Historian well observes, he had no other Way to secure his Repose, and even his Life, against the Suspicions of a Prince whose Interest it was to destroy him. And it was but too probable that the new King would embrace the first Occasion to free himself from the Uneasiness which such a Rival could created.

But, let the Steps to the Throne have been ever so slippery and dangerous, Henry found himself safely placed in it, and fortified there by the Sanction of the two Houses of Parliament. Some Historians have hinted, that the Lower House was hardly brought to consent to the Deposition of the late King; but at length was overawed by the Great-ones, to a Compliance with it.
