In the yéere of Grace, saith he, 951, king Edred put the archbishop of Yorke in close prison, bicause of often complaints exhibited against him, as he which had commanded manie townesmen of Theadford to be put to death, in reuenge of the abbat Aldelme by them vniustlie slaine and murthered.
But such was the ordinance of the mightie Lord of hostes, who disposeth althings at his pleasure. The earle of Huntington and his companie seeing the force of the townesmen to increase, fled out on the backside, intending to repaire to the armie which they found dispersed and gone. Then the earle seeing no hope of comfort, fled into Essex.
The lords perceiuing the danger, got them to their armor and weapons, and did their best by force to breake through and repell the townesmen. Fl. out of Tho. Maudelen fléeing into Scotland, was taken by the waie, and brought to the Tower. Walsing. Thom. Thus all the associats of this vnhappie conspiracie tasted the painefull penance of their plesant pastime.
