Re: Bartholomew de Badlesmere

Bartholomew de Badlesmere was hung at Canterbury, He joined a Rebellion led
by the  Earl of Lancaster he  was captured & hung. Edward II fought against
Scotland.  He lost to Robertthe Bruce at Bannockburn in 1314. General
disorder followed in England.  Edward's cousin, Thomas, earl of Lancaster
virtually ruled England.  Lancaster was moved aside in 1318 by a group of
barons under Aymer de Valence, earl of Pembroke, who conciliated the king
and maintained a relatively stable government until 1321. In that year,
Lancaster led a rebellion against the king's new favorites, Hugh le
Despenser (1262-1326) and his son. Lancaster was defeated and executed 1322
as was Bartholomew de Badlesmere. A Parliament at York 1322 revoked the
Ordinances, and Edward II,  dominated by the Despensers, regained control of
the government.
