Once upon a time… there were two English families constantly at war with one another. These noble families were the House of Lancaster and the House of York. The English people were sick and tired of it. Finally, a twenty-eight-year-old member of the House of Lancaster, Henry Tudor, married the daughter of Edward IV. Thus, Henry Tudor reined as Henry VII. While he reined from 1485-1509, there was an absence of war with other countries and England’s energy was spent exploring the New World, science and the arts. That was the House of Lancaster.
The role the House of York plays in America’s world famous city comes to us through King Charles II and his land grant to James, the Duke of York. The land grant ran between the Connecticut and Delaware Rivers.
