No business recorded.
1127. Angus and Sir Wm. Evers to Hertford.
Have received his letters with schedule of men appointed for a
raid to Eccles, and accordingly have debated the cause with Master
Douglas, Sir Wm. Bulmer, "my son Sir Rauf," Ralph Bulmer and the
captain of Norham. As Eccles is 17 miles off, and the only passage is
by Fier Brande milne, 14 miles off, if rain or thaw chance the rising
of the water would force them to come along the Marse by Berwick in
danger of the whole power of the Marse and Tyvidale, "for they must
come the same way that your Lordship journeyed the three first days ye
went into Scotland." Espials, and Sir John Witherington, who is now
come out of Scotland, say that only 100 men are gone out of the Marse
and Tyvidale, and the wardens are at home. Horses here are sore worn,
for Angus, Douglas, Sir Wm. Bulmer, Sir Ralph Eure, Ralph Bulmer,
the porter of Berwick, and the garrison were out on Thursday watching
for the Scots, and this morning upon warning by the captain of Norham.
Also those of Norham have been burning in Scotland. These gentlemen,
therefore, beg him to permit them to perform a journey they have
devised. Berwick castle, 26 Nov., 4 a.m. Signed.

1128. Sir Thomas Wharton to Hertford.
Sat this day in the Motehaull of Carlisle to receive presentation
of the Scottish prisoners, but, as things were not ready, has deferred it,
by proclamation, until next Monday.
Lord Dumlanrik has said to him, "There are now in your hands upon
these Marches those men, with good order, which may make peace or
conquest of Scotland at the King's will." Dumlanrik desired to speak
with Maxwell secretly, and the writer supped with them, and heard their
talk. Maxwell spoke to like effect, and desired to speak secretly with
Oliver Senklere, but Wharton would not grant it. Thinks that if Hertford
would come to Carlisle, the sequel would redound to the King's
The king of Scots lay at Loughmaben castle the night before the
enterprise, and came to Burnswarke hill to see the fire. Was himself
with the English standards further into Scotland than that the day
before. The standards with him both days were lord Parre's in the
rule of Walter Strikland, Sir Wm. Musgrave's, Sir Thos. Curwen's, Sir
John Lother's, and Wm. Pennyngton's. These, with Sir Jas. Laburn,
Thos. Dacre, John Leighe, Thos. Sandforth, Edw. Aglonby, Ant. Dukket,
John Preston, Gilb. Wharton, John Warcope, Cuthb. Huton, John Musgrave,
Thos. Blenerasset, Thos. Denton, Wm. Porter, the Grames, and
many others, served the King better than he can write. Won more
standards than those aforesaid. Lord Somervell says there were 30
standards in the field. "There was th'earl of Glencarn, otherwise called
th'earl of Kilmaures, now prisoner, th'earl of Cassillis, some saith that
he is slain, th'earl of Arell and th'earl of Menteth." Trusts to-day to
get most of the prisoners of honor and gentlemen of name and keep
them asunder. If Hertford come hither, will attend him from Hawtwisell
over the moor. Carlisle castle, 26 Nov., 5 a.m.

1129. Albert Duke Of Prussia to Henry VIII.
Thanks him for granting "literas passuum" to the sailors of his
ship now in England. Has no need of the ship, and has directed his
men to sell both ship and goods, offering it first to the King. Begs him,
if he does not want it, to suffer them to sell it to others or take it
elsewhere. "Date e Regiomonte ut supra."

1130. Hertford to Henry VIII.
Encloses letters and schedule of names of prisoners, received this
Monday [at noon] (fn. 1) from Wharton. As they begin to speak of peace
and conquest, has commanded that ten of them, and such others as
Wharton thinks fit, may be sent to Newcastle on Saturday next; for
it seems more to the King's honor to have them brought to his warden,
and more displeasure to their friends to have them conveyed further into
England. Seeing Maxwell's desire to speak secretly with Syntclere, who
is "the most secret man living with the said king of Scots," has ordered
Wharton to keep them apart until they come to Newcastle. Another
reason against Hertford's going to Carlisle is that lord Lile will arrive
at Newcastle, and should be instructed of affairs and where to direct
his men and the earl of Cumberland's. Alnwick, 27 Nov.

Thanks for his letters with the names of Scots taken at the West
March. Hears that many more are lacking, either drowned or killed
or kept secretly. Hertford should command that no prisoners go into
Scotland until the King's pleasure is known. Six war ships are ready
to come out of Scotland, and divers merchant ships with them. The
Cardinal and Murray, great lieutenant, lie at Hadyngton, and purposed,
if this journey had prospered, to have come into the East Marches of
England to one of the Border churches, and there interdicted the realm
by the bp. of Rome's authority. The lieutenant should then have
remained in Gedword, and put garrisons in Tevydall and the Marsse.

in his castell of Edinburgh, to be punissit according to yair demeritis
and qualite of ye cryme." That the punishment (as the herald was a
"public and privileged person") may be known to all other princes, and
no fault imputed to him and his lieges, his Grace sends supplication for
a safe conduct for certain heralds and gentlemen to repair to his uncle
to declare it. Beg him to forward the supplication. Edinburgh, 28

bowyer to the Prince. Recognisance (cited) of Wm. Pratt and Wm.
and Robt. Dickonson, bailiffs of Cambridge, to fulfil an order (detailed)
to make amends for having seized the goods of John Cowlter upon a
false report that he was executed in the King's camp in Scotland. The
fourth bailiff, who remained at home on plea of impotence, is to pay
double, and also his share of the costs of the other three in coming hither.
Execution of this order to be certified by Mr. Wendye and Mr. Sherwood.

1140. Hertford to the Council.
Yesterday night arrived Henry Rey, pursuivant at arms, declaring
the shameful murder of Somerset herald on his way hither with
answer from the earl of Morrey touching delivery of the prisoners in
Scotland; whose letters I was bold to open, and had I known the contents
sooner it might "have cost many of their lives." Gives reasons for
believing that this murder was not done by Leche and Prestman, but
by Scottishmen and by commandment. Knows that in Somerset the
King loses a wise, discreet and trusty servant as any in the office of
arms. Sends herewith Murrey's letters to Norfolk and to Berwick
pursuivant, with Berwick's declaration.
On the 25th the captain of Norham's company and Thos. Sotell burnt
Hilton and took 35 prisoners, 40 horses and 20 beasts. On the 27th
they, with the constables of Etell and Ford, burnt all Batrigeside and
Swynton, where the Scots "took the church for their soocr" (succour).
At "the rising of the day star" they assaulted the Scots in the church,
who defended themselves until 10 a.m., and hurt 12 Englishmen. Two
of the Scots were slain and 16 taken, most of them sore hurt and six
like to die; also 30 horses, 20 nowt and 100 sheep brought away. Also
on the 27th Sir Ralph Evre, Sir Geo. Douglas, Sir Wm. Bulmer, Ralph
Bulmer, the porter of Berwick and others burnt a great town called
Wedencrawe, where were 60 ploughs, and other places as East and
West Reston, White Rigge and Bastill Rigge, and corn in the fields
Finally, unless speedy provision be sent, lord Lisle's garrison cannot
continue long; for all the garrisons report that they cannot get provision
for money, notwithstanding any proclamation Hertford can make.

2. Report that Somerset herald and Berwick pursuivant came to Edinburgh
14 Nov. (altered from 29 Oct.), 34 Hen. VIII., and were brought
before the earl of Morrey, lieutenant, the Cardinal, the earl of Argyle,
the bp. of Abberdyne, Sir John Camell and other Councillors. The
Cardinal asked whence they came. Replied from my lord of Norfolk,
the King's lieutenant, with a letter to the King. The Cardinal
answered that the King was beyond the Furth, hawking, and had left
them to receive all letters. Delivered the letters, and were promised
answer shortly, and provided with lodging, Tarried there from 14
Nov. to 25 Nov. (altered from 29 Oct. to 10 Nov.), when Sir John Camell
delivered them a letter to my lord of Norfolk, saying that since they came
from the lieutenant they were answered by the lieutenant, and gave
them 20 cr. as the lieutenant's reward, but had they come from the
King they should have had a better reward and answer from the King.
Having been warned that harm was intended against them, they
asked for a pursuivant to accompany them, and left Edinburgh 25 Nov.
(altered from 10 Nov.), accompanied by Dingwell pursuivant. Two miles
from Dunbar, as it began to be dark, Somerset and his boy were
riding in front, when two men on horseback and one on foot
passed Berwick and Dingwell, and, coming up to Somerset, one of
the horsemen ran him through from behind with a lance while
the other struck him to the heart with a dagger, and the third
struck down the boy with his sword. The horsemen then
lighted off their horses, and the pursuivants rode up, saying,
"Fie on you, traitors, ye have done a shameful act." They then ran for
their horses, one saying to the other, "Fie, we have lost the other
heretic," which Berwick hearing spurred his horse and escaped. The
strange men then returned to the body of Somerset, which they spoiled
of all save doublet and hose, and gave the boy ten bloody wounds, and bade
the Scottish pursuivant witness that they were John Prestman, Wm.
Leche and his brother, banished Englishmen, who had slain Somerset.
Berwick fled to Ennerwik castle, and sent next day to the Council, to
speak with the King and them, who sent answer by letter for James
Hamilton, laird of the castle, with one Wm. Hume, to convey him safe
into England. Which was done; but first he went back, and had
Somerset's body honestly buried in Dunbar parish church, and the boy's
wounds attended to.
Berwick says there were eight good ships of war ready to sail with all
haste. Hamilton and Hume said there was like to be contention between
the temporal and spiritual lords, because the temporal lords were
not of counsel "of the late rode made in the West Marches of England
where the Scots had the overthrow." The names of the ships are
Salamander, Lyon, Unicorn, and Mary Willoughby; the other four
are merchants' ships. Signed : Barweck Porscovant.

1141. Hertford to Wriothesley.
Has received his of the 25th, and one from his wife, who is
better than he feared she was. Thanks for declaring his excuse in
the letter he wrote on the 13th, although he wrote no word that he
cannot justify if forced to it. To make a note in writing of all the laws,
constitutions, and orders of the Borders would keep him here until
Easter, for the most part "is contained in the opinions of men which
hath affection to their particularities." Will do his best, and refer the
rest to lord Lisle and the bp. of Dorram, who knows most therein. A
crayer bound for France, with salmon and leather from Scotland, has
been driven into Tenmouth. When Hertford's deputy boarded her,
one of the ship, who feigns himself sick and cannot be brought aland,
threw letters into the sea. Hertford's deputy brought away her sails
and left six men in charge. She is the John of Hunflu. If the salmon
is Scottish men's, Wriothesley may have some for Lent. Alnwick castle,

Sadelar, praying them to make their money ready for the post, and to
play fairer play than they did before my departing."

he writes of, and the earl of Cassillis, who was brought forth of Bewcastledale
this Wednesday. As commanded, encloses names of men of
honor and gentlemen taken with an estimate of the number taken and
slain on both sides, and the guns won. Will travail before coming to

2. "A remembrance made by Sir Thomas Wharton, knight, and delivered
to the right honorable the earl of Hertford, then lord warden
of all the marches, containing briefly the overthrow given to the Scots
between Heske and Levyn by the West Marchers of the same, the
xxiiijti of November."
The Scots lodged the night before in two powers, one at Langhome
and the other at Morton kirk in the Batable land, in all 14,000 (some
say 20,000), fortified with strong forays and reliefs. They had 4 falconets
of brass, 12 bases, "two upon every cart and three half bases upon one
cart," and 30 standards. They began to burn an hour and a half after
daylight at Heske foot, and so burnt to Akeshawhill, 2 miles. Wharton
had assembled divers gentlemen, "whose names are written and
their numbers herewith," at Carlisle on 22 Nov., and they had on the
23rd burnt Middlebie and certain houses on Kirtill water. As
they returned to Carlisle, before supper, Hertford's letters from
Alnwick of the 22nd arrived, showing that the Scots would with
great power on the 23rd or 24th burn Hesk and Levyn. That
night espials reported the Scots at Langholme and Mortonkirke,
and at daybreak Wharton marched towards Levyn with
300 men. Describes how they halted by the water of Levyn, and their
prickers drew the Scots towards Artureth howes; how they then with
six standards (viz., lord Parre's under "my" cousin Walter Strikland,
my cousin Sir Wm. Musgrave's, my brother-in-law Sir Thos. Curwen's,
my cousin and deputy Sir John Lowther's, my son-in-law Wm.
Pennyngton's and mine own), about 1,200 men, crossed the Levyn
to Howpsikehill, alighted from their horses and prepared to fight;
how the Scots advanced and then retired in disorder to Sandyford
beside Artureth mill dam where they had a moss on
their left hand and the Heske before them, and there our
prickers overthrew them and 1,200 prisoners were taken, 20 slain and
divers drowned (ten were drawn out of Heske with fisher nets three days
after). Two earls, five barons, and 500 lairds and gentlemen were
taken, 20 carted pieces of ordnance, 6 score half-hakes and many handguns,
30 standards, and all flags among the footmen,—none were "borne
on hight" over the Sarke. The English numbered not 2,000, of whom
7 were slain and one taken afore noon.
A little before "day going," all men drew to the standards, and
Wharton proclaimed that no prisoners should depart without presentation
before him. "This is briefly the truth, but to hear of the spoil
and taking of prisoners that night in Scotland by the Anerdalles, Eshdalles,
Ewesdalles, Wawcopdalles, and some of Liddersdalles, it is for
good Englishmen pleasant to hear; for surely there are some prisoners
mo by the Scots' good help that night sent back from their home going
into England to be kept." The King of Scots lay the night at Lowmabane,
and came to Burnyswarke hill, six miles off, to see the burning.
That night he was "most in a rage" with the news, and on the morrow
hastened by Braggewell towards Sterling, speaking displeasant words
against his Borderers for their spoil that night. The Scots purposed to
lie the night at Gretno, and on the morrow burn along the marches to
Endd. : "Sir Thomas Wharton's report for th'overthrow of the Scots.

The German troops have returned from the Hungarian expedition,
having done nothing worthy of such beginnings. Whether it be the
fault of the leader or of the soldiers, the indignation is so general that
it will be difficult in future to arrange a Turkish expedition. The
Protestants lately held a Diet (conventum), which deputed four doctors
hither to Spires, who refused the judgment of the Chamber, and openly
protested that, henceforth, they would not appear before this tribunal, as
not impartial. Count William a Furstenberg has now got all his
captains at Strasburg, which many think is done in the name of the
Protestants. The Saxon and Landgrave make great preparation to
repel attack; and next summer there is likely to be trouble unless the
Emperor comes, the Papists and Protestants are so opposed to each other.
The Emperor's captains are collecting soldiers and, some say, 20 standards
of foot shall go to Italy in May. German soldiers who, contrary to
the edict of the Empire, have accepted French pay, are proscribed.
The Diet (comitia) at Nürnberg, which was indicted for 15 Nov.,
makes little progress, and is said to be put off until January. Many
think that little will be done, as the Emperor and princes are not
there in person. There is little mention of the Council at Trent. The
Roman bishop's three legates, the cardinals of Paris, Modena, and England,
are already there, and lodgings are assigned to the Italian bishops.
The Roman bishop sent Otho Truchses, provost of Trent, to the king
of Poland, to indict the Council. Encloses copy of the indiction. Spire,

Have received his letters and thank him for granting prorogation

of the sum of money, to be paid at Christmas; although, on account
of wars and dangerous ways, it is very inconvenient, rather than longer
abuse his patience, they have commissioned the bearer to pay the whole
sum, 10,000 fl., at the said day. Lubeck, 3 kal. Dec. mdlxij (sic).

(cited) of John Dacken, of Horton, Dors., to fulfil order taken by
Mr. Philips between him and — Derbye, the King's servant. Letters
sent to lord Scrope to convey lord Kilmars, lord Maxwell and other
Scottish prisoners, from Sir Thos. Wharton to the President of the
Council at York; and letters to the President to commit them to Sir
Hen. Savell and Sir Thos. Wentworth, to convey hither. Letters to
Norfolk declaring order taken with Mr. Stanhop for provision of grain
against March next.

1148. Henry VIII. to Sir Thomas Wharton.
By his letter of the 25th and other letters sent therewith to the
Council, and, before that, to the earl of Hertford, perceives the victory
over the Scots and the names of prisoners then brought in. Thanks (1)
Almighty God and (2) Wharton, and all who were with him, to whom
he shall read these letters. (3) Wharton is to keep good espial on the
Scots—that this victory be not blemished for lack of foresight, and also
to keep them waking by devastating their country and keeping them from
sowing. (4) Intends to be liberal to the takers of the prisoners; but,
considering how the Scots have used Sir Robt. Bowes and those taken
with him, desires 20 or 24 of the very best of the Scots now taken conveyed
to London before Christmas, including those named in a schedule
enclosed, unless Wharton can pick out better. Wants only such as are
noblemen or of the King of Scots' chamber, or of such substance as to
be worth the sending. Wharton is to convey them to lord Scrope and
such others as he thinks meet, who shall convey them to the President
at York. Measures are to be taken to prevent secret conferences on the
journey or knowledge beforehand of their departure. Of the rest the
best are to be surely kept and the meaner men used for redemption of
Englishmen in Scotland.
The ward of R. Brisco is to be appointed to the order of the widow or
other as Wharton thinks fit.

which must be sent to him with speed.

1149. John Dudley, Viscount Lisle.
Certificate by John Uvedale, headed "Alnewike ultimo die
Novembris ao xxxiiijto H. viijvi," that this day arrived here the Viscount
Lisle, and, immediately upon sight of the King's instructions, Uvedale,
treasurer here, made a brief view by estimation of his disbursement of
the King's treasure, viz. :—Received at divers times 19,837l. 7s. 3d.
Whereof paid out in the time of the earl of Rutland, duke of Suffolk
and earl of Hertford, as appears by his book, 16,197l. 7s. 3d. Leaving
in his hands 3,740l., "and some odd money;" whereof nigh upon 30l
is broken and refuse gold.
Hol., p. 1. Endd. : The declaration of John Vuedale, &c.
1150. Ralph Bulmer to Hertford.
Sir Ralph Eure and he have fulfilled Hertford's command to burn
Caldstreym, and have gotten much nowt and sheep and prisoners. Kept
the purpose secret until they came to Crookam Moor Stone, and there
declared it to the captains upon charge of secrecy. Devised to send Francis
Bulmer with 80 men to demand the house in the King's name, so that,
if that were denied, they might put all to the sack and with more slaughter
requite the death of Somersyde. But the Prioress had warning, and sent
away all who could not safely remain, with horse, harness, 2,000 sheep
and a great drift of nowt. Their measures to prevent embezzling were
frustrated by the men who gave warning, viz., Hugh Paitt of Cornnell,
and others. Their men found that this Hugh Patt had taken the
Prioress's brother and others prisoners before they came, and were met
at the gate by the Prioress and priests bearing the Cross; so that they
could not for shame do any slaughter, and would not have burned but
that Hertford was so earnest to have it burnt. As it was, the nuns
sat on their knees singing "salmens" while Sir Ralph and he fired the
house. The writer then set fire to the church and the corn (which the
captain of Berwick esteemed at a great sum); and went near being himself
burnt, for Master Dowglez, setting fire to the town, raised such a
smoke that, with the church on fire behind and the abbey and barn on
either hand, he wist not which way to take. Afterwards he and his
cousin Harry Evers, "who is a very free burner," burned many stacks
and kilns. Is sorry for Hertford's departure, for if he tarried till Midsummer
they would waste the whole Mars from Gedworthe to Codynggam,
provided that Hertford would straitly punish such as break the
proclamation, warn the Scots, or go away with spoils without showing
them. Thinks Mr. Charles Brandon should be recompensed for 160
sheep, which were yesterday assigned to him, and afterwards taken away.
Alex. Shafto can show who took them, who was appointed to divide the
goods by Sir Ralph Eure and the writer and four quartermasters, "which
was my cousin George Bowes, my uncle Sir Ralph and other." Describes
how one Hedwayn gave very ill words to Shafto, which so
exasperated the writer that he drew his dagger and sword upon him, and
they had to be separated by Master Brandon, Tom Gray, and others.
Sir Ralph Eure and he desire leave to rest this day, as they and their
horses are weary. Will, if commanded bring up him who gave warning
to Caldstreym, together with the Prioress's brother, and his other prisoners.
George Selbey took from one Roger, of the writer's retinue, a
casket, which apparently contained money. Offers to bring Selbey and the
casket also. Much stuff is conveyed to Cornnell, and the writer suspects
(reasons given) some "pakkyn" between the lord of Cornnell and the
Prioress. Offers to search his house and examine him and the Prioress,
who is there, what stuff came from Caldstreym; which should go to
those who have loss by serving the King rather than to them. Begs that
Hedwayn may be let off with some light punishment here at Berwick
by Sir Wm. Evers, for the writer was himself something to blame.
Desires to know his pleasure by 8 o'clock to-morrow, or else he will
wait upon him at Alnwick soon after noon. 30 Nov. Signed.
Thinks Hertford should, before departing, send for the captain of
Berwick and Sir Ralph Eure, and thank them for setting forth his
affairs in the King's service.
