Richard Beauchamp Tourneys, c. 1410
Here showeth how Earl Richard from Venice took his way to Russia, Lithuania, Poland, and Prussia, Westphalia and other coasts of Almane toward England by such coasts as his ancestry had labored in, and specially Earl Thomas’s grandfather. That in war had taken the king’s son of Lithuania and brought him into England and christened him at London naming him after himself Thomas. And in this journey Earl Richard got him much worship at many tournaments and other feats of war.
