According to page 20 of “The History of Richmond, in the County of York”, by Christopher Clarkson, Esquire, F.S.A., printed at Richmond by Thomas Bowman in 1821,Count Alan persuaded King William II to “assemble”, at York in 1089, England’s very first “High Court of Parliament” “under that name”.

This pushes back the foundation and naming of Parliament 176 years before the official date, that of Simon de Montfort, Earl of Leicester's, Parliament of 1265.
