Compare 1577 edition: 1 And although fortune was so fauourable to hir, yet hir companie with stormie blasts was driuen on the shore before Banburgh castell, where they set their ships on fire, and fled to an Iland called holie I|land, where they were so assailed by the bastard Ogle, and an esquier called Iohn Manners, with other of king Edward freends, that manie of them were slaine, and almost foure hundred taken prisoners: but their coronell Peter Bressie, otherwise called mon|sieur de Uarenne, happened vpon a fisherman, and so came to Berwike vnto queene Margaret, who made him capteine of the castell of Alnewike, which he with his Frenchmen kept, till they were rescued.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 Shortlie after, quéene Margaret obteined a great companie of Scots, and other of hir friends, and so bringing hir husband with hir, and leauing hir sonne called prince Edward in the towne of Berwike, en|tered Northumberland, tooke the castell of Ban|burgh,Banburgh castell. and stuffed it with Scotishmen, and made thereof capteine sir Rafe Greie, and came forward toward the bishoprike of Durham. When the duke of Summerset heard these newes, he without delaie reuolted from king Edward,The duke of Summerset reuolteth. and fled to king Hen|rie. So likewise did sir Rafe Persie, and manie other of the kings friends. But manie mo followed king Henrie, in hope to get by the spoile: for his armie spoiled and burned townes, and destroied fields wher|soeuer he came. King Edward aduertised of all these things, prepared an armie both by sea and land.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 Some of his ships were rigged and vittelled at Lin, and some at Hull, and well furnished with soul|diers were herewith set foorth to the sea. Also the lord Montacute was sent into Northumberland, there to raise the people to withstand his enimies. And af|ter this, the king in his proper person, accompanied with his brethren, and a great part of the nobilitie of his realme, came to the citie of Yorke, furnished with a mightie armie, sending a great part thereof to the aid of the lord Montacute, least peraduenture he giuing too much confidence to the men of the bi|shoprike and Northumberland, might through them be deceiued.
