GARDINER, THOMAS (fl. 1516), a monk of Westminster, probably died before the dissolution of the monastery, as his name is not among the signatures of the deed of renunciation (1540). He wrote a chronicle of English history from Brutus to the seventh year of Henry VIII, entitled β€˜The Flowers of England,’ but the manuscript, which is among the Cotton MSS. (Otho C. vi.), has been so injured by fire as to be illegible.
