Martin Harvey quotes Birth Records (September 22, 1444 OS, 2:00 AM LAT). He gave the source: William of Worcester's Annales Rerum Anglicarum, printed in Liber Niger Scaccarii, London 1711, Vol. 2Liber Niger Scaccarii myself, and found that Harvey has it wrong. 22 April is correct. 02:00 LAT gives 01:56 LMT.
Sy Scholfield also quotes April 22 in William Worcester's "Annales" (1728) translated and reprinted in James Gairdner's 1898 "History of the Life and Reign of Richard the Third" (Reprinted by Greenwood Press, 1969), p. 4: "Elizabeth, the second daughter, born at Rouen at two A.M. on Tuesday morning, April 22, 1444." Gairdner adds, "But April 22 was a Wednesday." Scholfield notes that in the original Latin it means the same: "in mane diei Martis" (on the morning of the day of Mars [i.e. Tuesday])" so in either language the day given does not match the date given. Gairdner adds a footnote on the same page: "The error here appears to be in the month, which should have been September. See the genealogy appended by Hearne to W. Wyrc., 525-6." Scholfield notes that 22 September 1444 is given in various accounts as Elizabeth's date of baptism at Rouen Cathedral. NB. William Worcestre (c. 1415 – c. 1482), was an English chronicler and antiquary.
