Not illustrated. 1914 Excerpt: ...companies, dated back to the early days of the city's resistance to Lancaster. Northampton had received Government support in 1382, before the King and his party controlled the Government,1 but when in 1383 he was succeeded in the mayoralty by Brembre, after a fiercely contested election, it was evident that the new Mayor had the sympathy of the King.2 On January 22nd, 1384, Northampton was bound over to keep the peace, but having appealed at the head of a band of rioters on February 7th, he was sent off a prisoner to Corfe Castle, condemned to ten years' imprisonment, and forbidden to come within one hundred miles of the city at the expiration of his sentence. These disturbances in London were considerably more than the outcome of local politics, and masked a struggle between the Court party and the opposition. The disturbances at the Council board in the following February. were but a recrudescence of the same phenomena, and in revenge the Court party hatched a plot against Lancaster. It is said that they plotted to summon the Duke to the King's presence and have him at once tried for treason before Chief Justice Tresillian, but getting wind of the project, Lancaster protested openly to the King and retired to his castle at Hertford. The Duke's action was unexpectedly dignified and moderate, a fact explained by his anxiety to get support for an expedition to assert his claim to the Crown of Castile. But though a reconciliation was patched up, the quarrel flared up again during the Scottish campaign later in the same year, and the Court began to think that the Castilian expedition would be a solution of their difficulties. 1 Cal. of Letter Book H., 2oo-2o1.
