Aliases: Hale, Adam le Boscu d’Arras

Life

Born: between 1220 and 1250 (NG favors late 1340's)

Died: probably between 1285 and 1288

Biography Adam le Boscu (who declared that he himself was not hunchbacked like his ancestor) seems to have been well established before 1272, when a collaborator Jehan Bretel died. His nephew Jehanes Mados in 1288 mentions his uncle's recent death in Italy, but a "maistre Adam le Boscu" was hired for Edward II's coronation in 1307.
