MISCELLANEOUS: 1536 - Concerning George Hyndmers - Sub-Prior of Hexham. "on the 28th of Sept 1536, Sir Cuthbert Radcliffe, Lionel Crag, William Grene, James Rokeby, and Robert Collingwood, the King's Commissioners, with a few attendants, rode up along the banks of the Tyne with the purpose of putting an end to the foundation of Hexham. When they reached Dilston the strange news arrived that the "Canons" were up in arms, and had fortified their house with guns and all manner of artillery intending to themselves to the last. A halt was ordered, and an anxious discussion ensued as to the best steps to take under the circumstances. Eventually, it was agreed that Gray and Collingwood should go forward with a small company. When they reached Hexham they found that the news they had received was perfectly true. The steep and narrow streets, as they passed through,were full of angry and excited men, who were hurrying to arms to the tolling of the town "alarum bell", as if they were preparing to resist an invasion of the Scots. The great fray bell of the priory rang out an answering peal that only added to the general babelof sound, and announced the approach of the expected foe. the people hurried out to defend their beloved church, and the Commissioners arrived only to find the doors all locked and barred and the walls lined with armed men. The Master of Ovingham, who was the ringleader of the resistance, stood upon the walls in complete harness with a strung box in his hands. So dangerous a situation must have seriosly disturbed the equanimity of the Commissioners, but the least they could was to demand instance admittance and the respect due from loyal subjects to the King's writ and seal. The Master of Ovingham boldly replied: "We be twenti brethren in this house and we shall dye all, yet shall ye have this house." The Commissioners then presented their credentials, and the Master of Ovingham retired to take counsel with his brethren. Before long however, he re-appeared accompanied by the Sub-Prior, George Hyndmers. His only answer was, "We doo nott doubte bott ye bring with yow the kings seall of auctiorite for this hous, albeitt ye shall se here the kings confirmacion of our hous under the great seall of King Henry the VIII th God save his grace. we think it nott the kings honor to gyff furthe oon scall contrary to an other, and afore any other of our landes, goods, or hous be takin frome us we shall all dye and yt is our full answer."
