Juliana Berners, O.S.B., English writer on heraldry, hawking

and hunting, is said to have been prioress of the Priory of St.

Mary of Sopwell, near St Albans in Hertfordshire.

Born 1388 ... Died 1460


She was probably brought up at court and, after she adopted

the monastic life, she still retained her love of hawking, hunting

and fishing, and her passion for field sports. She is the

supposed author of the work generally known as The Boke of

Saint Albans
, of which the first and rarest edition was printed in

1486 by an unknown schoolmaster at St Albans.
