    I think it has been slightly altered, however, it appears to be from John Aubrey’s Miscellanies upon Various Subjects (1695)

    “Not long before the death of King Charles II. a Sparrow-hawk escaped from the perch, and pitched on one of the iron crowns of the white tower, and entangling its string in the crown, hung by the heels and died. Not long after, another hawk pitched on one of the crowns. From Sir Edward Sherborne, Knight.”
