Except Lord Darcy at Pontefract, the friends who gave roughly equivocal aid to the rebels have been lesser figures: Barons Lumley, Latimer, Scrope of Bolton and Conyers. furthermore, there has been not anything feudal concerning the Pilgrims’ oath [Doc. four, p. 143]. in demand landed households didn't even stand jointly. Lord Darcy’s sons didn't soak up their father’s reason.
