The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle
[p. 79]


A. 962. This year died Elfgar, the king’s kinsman, in Devonshire, and his body rests at Wilton. And king Sifferth killed himself, and his body lies at Wimborne. And then, within the year, there was a great mortality, and the great fever was in London; and Paul’s minster was burnt, and that same year was again built up.
