Not illustrated. 1894 edition. Excerpt: ...men, ' and he supported his kinsman in the fierce struggle with Somerset which ensued (gregory, p. 195; Will. Worc. p. 770). In March 1451 he held sessions of oyer and terminer at Norwich, and in July he and York were ordered to meet the king at Canterbury (Paston Letters, i. 123, 216; Ramsay, Lancaster and York, ii. 146). He does not appear, however, to have joined York in his futile armed demonstration of February 1452 (wavrin 1447-71, p. 265; Paston Letters, i. cxlviii, 232).
