Margery Kempe entry: Overview screen.
Margery Brunham (later MK) was born in Lynn
(later called King's Lynn).
At about this date MK began dictating the story of her life.
28 April 1438
At the suggestion of her priest-scribe, it seems that MK began adding a shorter second part to her book, telling what had happened in the interim.
Some time after April 1438
MK died at an unknown date; she seems to have been alive during this month.
The early printer Wynkyn de Worde
printed seven pages from MK's text as A Shorte Treatyse of Contemplacyon Taught by Our Lorde Ihesu Cryste
