Good questions - he would certainly have written in either Latin or French at the time, depending on who he was writing to or for. Remember too that in England the peasants may have spoken a form of English, but the Plantagenet ruling dynasty regarded themselves as primarily French, and French would have been the most likely language spoken by De Sudeley.
