This victory fell to the Scottes the xvij. of Fe|bruary, the report whereof was right diſpleaſant to the Engliſh nation, but ſpecially the loſſe of that worthy Gentleman ſir Rauf Evre, was greatly bemoned, and that euen of the King him ſelfe, for the noble prowes and great loyaltie whiche at all times had bene founde in him. His ſeruice had ben ſuch in theſe warres againſt Scotland,His ſeruice a|gaynſt the Scottes. that he had brought the more parte of all the Scottes within xx. miles ſpace of the Engliſh borders, vnto the obeyſance of the king of England, although at length they holpe to worke his confuſion as before you haue hearde: and here I haue thought (good although out of place) to ſay ſomewhat further in the dew com|mendation of this noble Gentleman.

Compare 1587 edition: 1 His ſeruice in the rebellion tyme.In time of the great rebellion in the North partes, whiche chaunced in the xxvij. yeere of King Henry the eight, when many other the Noblemen and Gentlemen of thoſe parties had conſpired togither with the commons by leuy|ing warre to reſiſt the Kings proceedings, this Sir Raufe Evre beyng then within Scarbor|rough Caſtel,He is beſieged in Scarbor|rough Caſtell. accõpaned onely with his friends, ſeruants and tenants, whiche of very good will were contented to ſerue vnder him, was beſie|ged in the ſame Caſtell, and kept from all reliefe & ſuccours that might come or be brought vnto him from any parte, during the terme of ſixe weekes or there about, ſo that for the ſpace of xx. dayes after theyr prouiſion was ſpent, they li|ued onely with bread and water, hauing little or no other ſuſtenance, whiche extremitie not withſtanding, he kept the fortreſſe in ſafetie to the Kings vſe vnto the ende of that dangerous rebellion, and then to his high prayſe and com|mendation deliuered it like a faithful Gentlemã into the Kings hands. This I ſhould haue ſet downe in place where mencion is made of that rebellion, but the note came not to my hand till that parte of the booke was paſte the preſſe, and ſo rather here than not at all, I haue thought good to imparte it to the Reader. But now to returne to the purpoſe for the doings in Scot|lande. About the ſame time that the victory be|fore mencioned chanced to the Scottes, Robert Carncorfe biſhop of Roſſe departed this life,Death of By|ſhops. to whome ſucceeded Dauid Pantane, Secretary to the gouernour an Priour of S.
