Historical Context Note


Perkin Warbeck had set off from Cornwall with an army of 6000 followers, and advanced through Devon, but when he heard that Henry VII had sent out his general Giles, Lord Daubeny, against the rebels, he panicked and fled. He was captured at Beaulieu Abbey in Hampshire, and taken to the King at Taunton. As a result, the rest of his followers submitted and the rising was quashed.
