James CONSTABLE

Born: BET 1515/8

Died: 1546

Notes: A gentleman farmer, he was granted on the 26 Mar 1539 (30 Hen. VIII) lands at North Cliff, South Cliff and Sancton by Mungo Westerdayll. He had just attained his 21st year. He left an Inquisition Post Mortem dated 38 Hen. VIII, Chancery Series, Vol 74, No 45, Exchequer series 242 No 2 and Court of Wards, Vol 31, No 117. In reports of his involvement in the 'Pilgrimage of Grace' (1536-7) he is referred to as the 'heir of Cliffe' which would make think that he was possibly underage at the time. Although this is not proof in itself it does give me evidence for this to have been the case. James survived the revolt without penalty.

II. NUNEATON LINE

Robert CONSTABLE of Nuneaton (Sir Knight)

Born: 1478, Flamborough, Yorkshire, England

Died: 8 Jun 1537, Beverley Gate, Hull, Yorkshire, England

Notes: in his youth he carried off a ward of chancery, and tried to marry her to one of his retainers. In the reign of Henry VII he was of signal service to the crown upon the commotion of Lord Audley and the Cornishmen, who marched on London and were defeated at Blackheath in 1497. Constable was one of the knights bannerets that were created at Blackheath by the King after his victory, 17 Jun 1497.

In the following reign
he was also at Flodden. On the outbreak of the great Yorkshire rising, known as the Pilgrimage of Grace, caused by the beginning of the destruction of monasteries in 1536, he took the leading part, along with Robert Aske and Lord Darcy. Constable was among those who made their submission, and received their pardon. At the beginning of the next year, Jan 1537, when Sir Francis Bigod rashly attempted to renew the insurrection, Constable exerted himself to keep the country quiet. When this last commotion was over, he, like the other leaders, was invited by King Henry VIII to proceed to London. This he refused, and at the same time removed for safety from his usual place of abode to a dwelling thirty miles away.

Hereupon the powerful minister Thomas Cromwell caused the Duke of Norfolk to send him up with a sergeant-at-arms on 8 Mar. He with Aske and Darcy was committed to the Tower till they should be tried, and meantime Norfolk was directed to say in the north that they were imprisoned, not for their former offences, but for treasons committed since their pardon. What those treasons were the Duke was conveniently forbidden to say. There was 'no speciality to be touched or spoken of', but all 'conveyed in a mass together'. True bills were returned against them, and after their condemnation it seemed to the King 'not amiss' that some of them should be remitted to their county for execution, 'as well for example as to see who would groan'. Constable and Aske were therefore sent down to Yorkshire, exhibited as traitors in the towns through which they passed, and Constable was
executed at Hull being hanged in chains over Beverley gate at Hull, and thereby forfeited Flamborough and 35 other manors in Lincolnshire.

For his service under the Earl of Essex (A.D. 1599), in Ireland he received the honor of knighthood; and being involved in the subsequent proceedings of that nobleman, he was arraigned for high treason, but remanded without trial, on a special letter from the Queen, that he and others were unwarily drawn in. On the 20 Mar following, he had her Majesty's warrant, to Sir John Popham, Knt, Lord Chief Justice, to be admitted to bail. Sir William was created a baronet by King James I, 29 Jun 1611, served in parliament, first for the borough of Knaresborough, and afterwards for the county of York, from 25 James I to the time of his decease. He became a great advocate for the liberty of the subject, and being imprisoned on account of ship money, adopted a decided part against the King. He was a colonel in the Parliament army, and his name appears in the warrant for the execution of King Charles. He died during the usurpation, 15 Jun 1655, and thus escaped personally the resentment of the restored monarch, but his lands, &., were especially excepted in the general pardon, granted by Charles II, as likewise, all pains, penalties, and forfeitures, as though the Act of Grace had never passed. He died without surviving issue.
