Laurence Minot (1300? – 1352?) was an English poet. Nothing is certainly known of him. It has been suggested that he was a cousin of Thomas Minot, Archbishop of Dublin 1363-75.[1] He may have been a soldier. Eleven poems are attributed to them, all of which appear uniquely in London: British Library, MS Galba E. ix. In them, he celebrates in northern English and with a somewhat ferocious patriotism the victories of Edward III over the Scots and the French.
