Welles' Rebellion and Battle of Losecoat Field aka Empingham

Before 03 Feb 1470 Robert Welles 8th Baron Willoughby de Eresby 8th Baron Welles -1470 attacked Gainsborough Old Hall home of Thomas Burgh 1st Baron Burgh 1431-1496, a senior Yorkist, Edward IV's Master of the Horse. It isn't known whether this attack was a consequence of local or national issues. King Edward IV summoned Robert's father Richard Welles 7th Baron Willoughby de Eresby 7th Baron Welles 1428-1470 and uncle-in-law Thomas Dymoke 1428-1470 (married to Margaret Welles 1432-1480 sister of Robert Welles 8th Baron Willoughby de Eresby 8th Baron Welles -1470) to London. Both initially went into Sanctuary Westminster Abbey but were pardoned on 03 Mar 1470.

After 03 Mar 1470 Robert Welles 8th Baron Willoughby de Eresby 8th Baron Welles -1470 continued to resist King Edward IV by raising forces in Lincolnshire. King Edward IV travelled north and threatened Robert Welles 8th Baron Willoughby de Eresby 8th Baron Welles -1470 with the execution of his father and Thomas Dymoke 1428-1470 if Robert persisted in rebellion.

On 12 Mar 1470 King Edward IV (27) commanded at the Battle of Losecoat Field (Empingham). The battle apparently didn't take place since the army of Robert Welles 8th Baron Willoughby de Eresby 8th Baron Welles -1470 fled in the face of the Royal army. The name 'Losecoat' not contemporary; Battle of Empingham may be. Robert Welles 8th Baron Willoughby de Eresby 8th Baron Welles -1470 was captured with documents describing the fomenting of rebellion by Richard "Kingmaker" Neville 16th Earl Warwick 6th Earl Salisbury 1428-1471 (41) and George York 1st Duke Clarence 1449-1478 (20).

On 12 Mar 1470 Richard Welles 7th Baron Willoughby de Eresby 7th Baron Welles 1428-1470 (42) and Thomas Dymoke 1428-1470 (42) were beheaded at Queen's Cross Stamford. Note. Some sources say on battlefield immediately prior to the battle.

Joan Welles 9th Baroness Willoughby Eresby -1475 succeeded 9th Baron Willoughby de Eresby. Richard Hastings Baron Willoughby de Eresby 1433-1503 (37) by marriage Baron Willoughby de Eresby. He, Hastings, a favourite of King Edward IV (27), younger brother of Edward's (27) great friend William Hastings 1st Baron Hastings 1431-1483 (39).

Before 23 Jan 1475 Joan Welles 9th Baroness Willoughby Eresby -1475 died. King Edward IV had father and son Robert Welles 8th Baron Willoughby de Eresby 8th Baron Welles -1470 and Robert Welles 8th Baron Willoughby de Eresby 8th Baron Welles -1470 posthumously attainted some five years after the Welles' Rebellion to ensure Richard Hastings Baron Willoughby de Eresby 1433-1503 would continue to enjoy the benefit of the Welles' estates; he was given a life interest in the estates on 23 Jan 1475. Another example of King Edward IV being somewhat disingenuous with the legal system to his own advantage. He, Edward was, in effect, disinheriting Christopher Willoughby 10th Baron Willoughby de Eresby 1453-1499 who should have inherited Baron Willoughby de Eresby and John Welles 1st Viscount Welles 1450-1498 who should have inherited Baron Welles following Joan's death. Christopher Willoughby 10th Baron Willoughby de Eresby 1453-1499 de jure 10th Baron Willoughby de Eresby. Margaret Jenney Baroness Willoughby Eresby by marriage Baroness Willoughby de Eresby.

Around 1485 John Welles 1st Viscount Welles 1450-1498 (35) succeeded 10th Baron Welles when the attainders on Richard Welles 7th Baron Willoughby de Eresby 7th Baron Welles 1428-1470 (57) and Robert Welles 8th Baron Willoughby de Eresby 8th Baron Welles -1470 were reversed.

Earldom of Northumberland returned to the Percy Family

On 27 Mar 1470 George Neville 1st Duke Bedford 1461-1483 (9) was created 1st Duke Bedford 3C 1470 by his first cousin once removed King Edward IV (27) in preparation for his marriage to Elizabeth York Queen Consort England 1466-1503 (4) which didn't, in the end, take place. He, George, was nephew to Richard "Kingmaker" Neville 16th Earl Warwick 6th Earl Salisbury 1428-1471 (41) whose defection to the Lancastrian side may have caused the King to change his mind about his daughter's marriage. The attainder of John Neville 1st Marquess Montagu 1431-1471, if it was enacted, would have resulted in the King appropriating the estate of John Neville 1st Marquess Montagu 1431-1471. Eight

On 27 Mar 1470 John Neville 1st Marquess Montagu 1431-1471 (39) revoked his title of Earl of Northumberland 3C 1464 so that the Earldom could be given to Henry Percy 4th Earl of Northumberland 1449-1489 (21) of the Percy family who were its traditional holders. A deeply unpopular move with the Neville family who had been longstanding enemies of the Percies in the North. He was created 1st Marquess Montagu instead. Possibly a consequence of the defection of Warwick the Kingmaker (41) to the Lancastrian cause as evidenced by the Welles Rebellion earlier in the year.
