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 honor.
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.

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.

1136. Angus to Hertford.
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.

Suppose him advertised, by the coming of Ra, one of his sovereign's officers of arms, of the unhappy slaughter of Somerset herald by English fugitives called Wm. Leche and John Preistman. The King has caused the committers to be "apprehendit and tane furth of ye girth and sanctuary quhair yai wer kepit in secrete maner, and put wt 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 Nov. Signed, "Be zors lefullie, the Chancellar and lordes of or Soveranis Counsale in Edinbrgh."

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 worth 1,000l.
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. Alnwick castle, 29 Nov. Signed.

R. O. St. P. v., 225. 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, 29 Nov.

Will wait on him on Saturday with the prisoners he writes of, and the earl of Cassillis, who was brought forth of Bewcastledale this Wednesday.

Longleat MS. Hamilton Papers, I. lxxxiii. 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 Beaumont.

1145. Christopher Mont to Henry VIII.
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, 29 Nov. 1542.

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.

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.
