Noble Friends,

Wikipedia is somewhat vaguely promoting today as the beginning of Jack 
Cade's Rebellion. This 1450 rising in Kent was against the government of 
Henry VI. Cade and his followers managed to enter London where they 
looted and pillaged, plus executing several nobles whom they blamed for 
the loss of Normandy and for general corruption. King Henry pardoned 
Cade and his followers and they dispersed. When the rebels were no 
longer a direct threat, he withdrew his pardons and had them ruthlessly 
hunted down and killed. Cade himself was mortally wounded in a skirmish 
in July.

Mungo Napier, Laird of Mallard Lodge
