  • "The Vale was known in former times as the Forest of White Hart, from a curious legend of King Henry III's reign, in which the killing by a certain Thomas de la Lynd of a beautiful white hart which the king had run down and spared, was made the occasion of a heavy fine."

    Tess of the d'Urbervilles

    This "legend" also appears in a derivative work of the Battle Abbey Roll by Catherine Powlett, Duchess of Cleveland, titled The Battle Abbey Roll with some account of Norman lineages. It was published two years prior to Tess of the d'Urbervilles.
