Montagu, Edward (b. ABT 1500, d. 10 FEB 1556/57)
Note: Sir Edward Montagu was a second son, born in the royal manor-house of Brigstock in Northamptonshire. He studied at Cambridge and was called to the bar at the Middle Temple, where he was an autumn reader from 1524 to 1531. When his elder brother died without issue, he succeeded to the family estates.

In the next few years he served on numerous county commissions. On Nov 12 1531 he was raised to the degree of serjeant-at-law, an event that was celebrated at Ely House in London in an extraordinary feast that lasted five days and numbered the King and Queen among its guests.

At the outbreak of the rebellion known as "the Pilgramage of Grace" in 1536, he acted as commissariat commisioner to the royal forces in Northamptonshire and the following year was made King's serjeant.

He profited hugely from the dissolution of the monastaries, receiving the numerous estates of the Abbey of Bury St. Edmunds in Northamptonshire and adjoining counties as well as other church lands in the area.

He was knighted Oct 18 1537 and on Jan 21 1539 he was named Chief Justice of the King's Bench. In Dec 1541 he assisted the Privy Council in the examination of the Duchess of Norfolk and other preliminaries leading to the execution of Queen Catherine Howard. In 1545 he was transferred from the King's Bench to the lesser (but much less onerous) post of Chief Justice of the Common Pleas.

He was a member of the commission that extracted a confession on Jan 12 1547 from the Duke of Norfolk that would have resulted in his execution, had not Henry VIII died the night before it was scheduled. After the King's death, he was named in his will to serve on the Council of Regency during the minority of his successor, Edward VI. On the council he generally opposed the policies of the Duke of Somerset, the Lord Protector, and voted for his deposition in Oct 1549.

On Jun 11 1553, he was summoned to the council and was told of the Duke of Northumberland's plan for altering the succession in favor of Lady Jane Grey, to prevent the Catholic Mary Tudor from coming to the throne. Told to draft the necessary language in the dying king's will, Montagu objected, saying that it would be void under the provisions of the Act of Settlement. He met the next day with colleagues in the law and they decided that such an action would be treasonable, even if Parliament altered the law. But his fears were laid to rest with a commission under the Great Seal and the promise of a general pardon.

He then drafted the necessary clauses and signed the will as one of the guarantors. On the collapse of the opposition to the accession of Queen Mary, Montagu was sent to the Tower on Jul 26 1553 but he was released on Sep 6, having been fined 1000 pounds and the forfeiture of some of his estates. He was also removed from the Court of Common Pleas.

Montagu retired to his manor at Boughton that he had bought in 1528 and which has been the seat of his descendants, the Earls and Dukes of Manchester, ever since. He died at Boughton and was buried, with great pomp, in the neighboring church of St. Mary, Weekley. His effigy is still to be seen there as is the artfully ambiguous legend "pour unge pleasoir mille dolours" (for one pleasure a thousand sorrows).

His grandson, Sir Henry Montagu, also served as Chief Justice of the King's Bench (he condemned Sir Walter Ralegh), and was created Earl of Manchester in 1626. His son, the 2nd earl, would play a major part in the English Civil War on the Parliamentary side. But he opposed trying King Charles I for treason and retired to his estates. He actively assisted the restoration in 1660. His grandson, the 4th earl, was created Duke of Manchester in 1719.

Sir Edward Montagu was also the progenitor of the Earls of Sandwich. His grandson, James Montagu, served as Bishop of Winchester.

Tyrrell, John (b. BET 1370 AND 1380, d. 1437)
Note: Sir John Tyrrell fought at Agincourt in 1415 in the retinue of King Henry V. His helmet, battered and dented from the fighting and with the Tyrrell crest in bronze on top, is affixed to the wall of a small church in Brentwood, about twenty-two miles from London. With it are the jointed gauntlets he wore that day.

In 1423 he was Sheriff of Essex and Hertfordshire. First elected to Parliament in 1411 and to eleven subsequent Parliaments, he served as Speaker of the House of Commons in 1427, 1431, and 1437, when he had to retire because of failing health. In 1430 he was appointed by the King to attend him as one of his council in France. On March 1st, 1432 he was made Treasurer of the war in France and on July 13th of that year was appointed Treasurer of the King's Household.

There is an article about him in the Dictionary of National Biography. Additional information about him is to be found in John Smith Roskell's Parliament and Politics in Late Medieval England, The House of Commons, 1386-1421, and The Commons and Their Speakers in English Parliaments, 1376-1523.
