  • Government response to Pilgrimage of Grace
  • Government response to Pilgrimage of Grace
  • End of Pilgrimage of Grace
  • The government was caught off guard and soon the Pilgrims held sway over virtually the whole of the north. Faced with a force larger than he himself could muster, Henry wisely played for time, sending a delegation led by the Duke of Norfolk to meet the rebels, who presented their 5 York articles.
  • End of the Pilgrimage of Grace
  • I, the Lancaster Herald, am to read the King's pardon
  • A truce was signed on 27th October, under which Sir Ralph Ellerker and Robert Bowes were to meet with the King. In the meantime, the Pilgrims kept their forces and chain of command in place. At the meeting, Henry offered no concessions, except that he'd pardon all but 10 ringleaders.
  • Sir Francis Bigod's revolt
  • The representatives of the host armies met again at Pontefract between 2nd and 4th December to finalise their demands in the 24 Pontefract Articles. They were presented at a meeting between Norfolk and Aske. 
  • Sir Francis Bigod's revolt
  • Henry had given Norfolk permission to grant a general pardon, a prolonged truce and the promise of a parliament to discuss the issues raised. Aske agreed, but insisted that the monasteries must not be suppressed before the parliament met. It was reluctantly accepted by the Commons, who dispersed on 8th December.
  • Whilst Aske toured the north trying to sell the deal he had made to the gentry, a disaffected rebel, Sir Francis Bigod, remained unconvinced of the governments sincerity. He planned to capture Hull and Scarborough, and force the Duke of Norfolk to act as a go-between.
  • The scheme went into operation on 16th January 1537, but it collapsed in a few days. Bigod fled and was eventually arrested in Cumberland, where the frustrated commoners had launched their own unsuccessful attack on Carlisle in early February.
