EARLS OF ARUNDEL. According to Cokayne (Complete Peerage, i. p. 138, note a) there is an old Sussex tradition to the effect that " Since William rose and Harold fell There have been earls of Arundel." This, he adds, " is the case if for ` of ' we read ' at.' " The questions involved in this distinction are discussed in the pre-ceding article on the earldom of Arundel, now held by the duke of Norfolk. The present article is confined to a biographical sketch of the more conspicuous earls of Arundel, first in the Fitzalan line, and then in the Howard line.
