It was taken by Robert Aske, leader of the Pilgrimage of Grace, in 1536.
Her mother, Elizabeth, co-heiress of Aske in Yorkshire, was the earliest of that little band of women-friends whose correspondence with Knox on religious matters throws an unexpected light on his discriminating tenderness of heart.
The Lincolnshire rising was over before the middle of October~ the more serious revolt in Yorkshire under Aske lasted through the winter.
Aske was invited to come to London and hoodwinked by Henry into believing that the king was really bent on restoration and reform.
Aske and other leaders were tried and executed, and summary vengeance was wreaked on the northern counties, especially on the monasteries.
