CHRISTIANNE beheaded 15 June 1381 Bury St. Edmunds John Candish or Cavendish, of London and of Grimston Hall, acquired Grimston Hall from Sir John de la Pole, Knt. He also obtained a grant of the Manor of Overhall and Cavendish from Sir John de Oddyngesles in 1359. It appears by the quo warranto roll, that in the year 1330, John Gernon claimed a market on Monday, at Bakewell; a fair for three days at the festi val of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, and another for fifteen days, be ginning on the vigil of St. Philip and St. James. The last-mentioned fair had been granted in 1251, to William Gernon.(1) Sir John Cavendish became a lawyer and rose to Chief Justice of the King's Bench. He was also elected Chancellor of the University of Cambridge. As Chief Justice he was obliged to suppress the Peasants' Revolt in 1381. His son, John Cavendish, had killed Wat Tyler, one of the leaders of the revolt, for which he was knighted at Smithfield and received a large grant of money from the King. As a result of this, the father, Sir John Cavendish, was pursued by the peasants. He reached St. Mary's Church, Cavendish, where he pleaded sanctuary by grasping the handle of the church door. This was to no avail, however, and he was taken to the market place at Bury St. Edmunds and beheaded by a mob led by Jack Straw on 15 June 1381. He was buried in Bury St. Edmunds. St. Mary's Church, Cavendish, benefited from a large bequest made by Sir John and had its chancel refurbished. Issue I Roger- will 1404/5.

Sir John was in the King's bodyguard and was knighted for killing the rebel Wat Tyler in 1379. There are several claimants for this distinctuion, which has been generally accorded to Sir William Walworth, under whose statue in Fishmonger's Hall an inscription still proclaims that it was: Brave Walworth, Knight, Lord Mayor, yt slew Rebellious Tyler in his alarmes; The King therefore did give in lieu The dagger to the City arms. But the sword on the shield of the Corporation of London was not added at that time and although the old Corporation seal was broken up during the mayoralty of Sir William, the new one was provided on 17 Apr. 1381 whereas the Wat Tyler incident didn't take place until 15 June. Fuller and Stowe both affirm that the blow was struck by John Candish or Cavendish, one of the equires in attendance on Richard II.(1) Issue 10I. THOMAS- m.
