Compare 1577 edition: 1 But vpon the kings approching néere vnto those parties, they sent to him for pardon, promising that vpon a reasonable appointment,The rebels [...] for pardon. for the safegard of their liues, and other indemnities to be had for their benefit, they would become his faithfull subiects, and deliuer into his hands all the ships. Their offer the king vpon great considerations, and by good delibe|rate aduise of counsell, thought best to accept: and therevpon (being at that time in Canturburie) hée granted to their petitions, and sent immediatlie vn|to Sandwich his brother Richard duke of Glocester, to receiue them to mercie, togither with all the ships, which according to their promise they deliuered into his hands.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 But notwithstanding that (as some write) the bastard Fauconbridge, and other of his companie that were got to Sandwich, had thus their pardons by composition at the kings hand; we find neuerthe|lesse, that the said bastard Fauconbridge, being after|wards at sea (a rouing belike,The bastard of Faucon|bridge be|headed. as he had vsed before) came at length into the open hauen at Southhamp|ton, and there taking land, was apprehended, and shortlie after beheaded. This chanced (as should ap|peare by Fabian) about the latter end of October. Moreouer, Roger Uaughan that had béene sent by king Edward into Wales,Roger Uaug|han taken and beheaded. anon after Teukes|burie field (being a man of great power in that coun|trie) to intrap and surprise by some secret sleight the earle of Penbroke, the said earle being thereof aduer|tised, tooke the same Roger, and without delay stroke off his head.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 After this, was the earle besieged in the towne of Penbroke by Morgan Thomas; but the siege was raised by Dauid Thomas, brother to the said Mor|gan,Dauid Tho|mas. a faithfull friend to the earle; and then the earle by his helpe was conueied to Tinbie, where he got ships, and with his nephue the lord Henrie earle of Richmond sailed into Britaine,The earle of Penbroke with his ne|phue the earle of Richmond [...] ouer into Britaine. where, of the duke they were courteouslie interteined; with assurance made, that no creature should doo them anie wrong or iniurie within his dominions. King Edward vi|siting diuerse places in Kent, sate in iudgement on such as had aided the bastard in the last commotion, of whome diuerse were condemned and executed, as Spising one of the capteins that assaulted Algate, whose head was set vp ouer the same gate: and so likewise was the head of one Quintine, a butcher, that was an other capteine amongest them,Execution. and chiefe of those that assaulted Bishops gate, as some write.
