1400. Perfon thnt infpired them with this defign. This Man,
though a private Gentleman only, had all the Qualities
proper for fuch an undertaking ; if Forces fo little confi-
derable as thofe of the JVclfli could have promifed him a
happy fuccefs. Neverthelefs, he fo managed this project,
that for feveral Years he freed his Countrymen from the
fervitude, wherein they thought themfelves kept by the
Englijh. A Law-Suit he had loft at London with the Lord
Grey of Ruthin, his Neighbour, was the firft occafion of
the difguft he conceived againft the whole Englijh Nati-
on (1). The Confpiracy before fpoken of, breaking out
in England at this very time, Glendour, not doubting it
would caufc great disturbances, thought it a favorable junc-
ture, to deliver his Country from the Englijl) Dominion.
He privately founded the ll'eljhmcn, and finding them
very inclinable to receive his impreffions, he eafily per-
fuaded them to refolve to throw off the Englijh Yoke.
He would have immediately difcovered his deiigns, if the
ill fuccefs of the Englijh Confpiracy had not reftrained
him. The moment he faw the King engaged in the
War with Scotland, he prepared to execute his project ;
and fo ordered it, that the JVelJh unanimoufly renouncing
their Allegiance to the Crown of England, acknowledged
Aft Pub. n j m f or Sovereign. From thenceforward he always ftiled
16- j'si. ' himfelf Prince of Wales, as appears in feveral Acts.

His firft exploit was againft the Lord Grey his adver-
fary, whom he took Prifoner in a Battle, and then made
him marry his Daughter, without giving him his Liberty,
contrary to his word.
Glendour Emboldened with this firft fuccefs he made an incur-

Mar'l'of '" 10n int0 Herefordjhirc. Edward Mortimer Earl of
Mmh March, who was retired to his Lordfhip of Wigmore,
pnfmrr. finding the King was employed in Scotland, thought to
Waiting. (] jjj,^ a f,g na [ S er vice, .by drawing together the Gentry
of the Country, in order to flop the progrefs of the Re-
bel. But he had the misfortune to be taken -Prifoner
in a Battle, and though he offered a large ranfom, could
not obtain his liberty. Glendour imagined, a Prifoner of
that confequence might be of ufe hereafter, or at leaft that
the King would fpare nothing for his deliverance ; and
therefore it would be more advantagious to treat with the
Henry a King, than with the Prifoner himfelf. But he was mif-
E rl°\ Mh ta ' cen m n ' s conjecture. Henry was too well pleafed, to
fortune. fee the Earl of March a Prifoner, and unable to hurt
him, to contribute towards his releafe. Glendour, how-
ever, ftill kept his Prifoner, in expectation that, by his
means, he fhould one day be able to give the King fome
difturbance, as it actually happened. The Earl was not
afterwards forry for being in the hands of the JVelJh.
Henry's jealoufy of every thing relating to his Crown,
and his feverity to thofe that would difpute it with him,
made the Captive Earl fenfible, that his Life was fafer in
Prifon than at his own Houfe. Mean while, the King
being bufied in a Scotch War, Glendour had fufficient time
to ravage the Country on the Weft of the Severn, and
carry away a great Booty.
•Thi Emperor About the end of this Year, Manuel Palaeologus, Em-
•/ Conftan- peror of Conjlantinople, arrived in England, to defire af-
ri%i*i?' hftance againft Bajazet Emperor of the Turks. The King
England, received, and prefented him honourably, but as for affi-
Waiiins- fiance, put him off till his affairs were better fettled in his
own Kingdom. The Emperor went from England into
France, from whence he departed not till two Years af-
ter, upon News that Bajazet his Enemy, was vanquifhed
and taken Prifoner by Tamerlane.
1401 O n the 20th of 'January 1401, Henry affembled a

Statutes in Parliament, which palled feveral Acts, with relation to
cburcb- tne Church. The firft confirmed the Statutes made in
CrWs the Rei S ns of Edward Ul and Richard II, againft fuch
Abridg. as follicited for papal Proviiions (2), or carried to the Ec-
clefiaftical Courts, Caufes belonging to the Cognizance of
the Judges of the Realm. This was the old fubject of
Quarrel with the Court of Rome. Whatever rigour was
ufed to flop the courfe of thefe abufes, it was not poffible,
becaufe it was the intereft of too many to counte-
nance the pretended Prerogatives of the Pope. But how-



ever this Parliament, confiden'ng the Pope ftill continued 1401
to engrofs the Collations of all the Church-Preferments of
the Kingdom, and that the Ecclefiaftical Courts were per-
petually encroaching upon the Civil, refolved at laft to
oppofe it effeaually. For that purpofc was revived v ic '■ • r„ »/
old Statute of Provifors in the Reigns of Edward III and l>r: "'
Richard II, commonly known by the name of Praemu-
nire. As this Term often occurs in the Englijh Hiftorv,
it will not be improper to explain it. By Praemunire Explicit™
then is meant, either the Statute itfelf, or the Penalty. '/•'""
Former Parliaments, led by the fame Motive as thisj had ' f,rm -
ordained punifhrnents againft the Provifors-, that is, againft
fuch as fued for Bulls, called Prvuifimes or Gratia: Ex'ec-
tativa, to the Court of Rove, for Benefices, that were,
or fhould be, vacant. The fame Punifhrnents were or-
dained againft thofe, that carried to the Ecclefiaftical Courts
what belonged to the Civil. When any Perfon was guil-
ty of this fort of crime, a Writ or Order was iffued againft
him, beginning with thefe Words, Praemunire facial,
whereby he was commanded to appear in the King's Court.
Hence the Statute, as well as the Penalty, were called
Praemunire (3). This Penalty confifted in forfeiture of
Lands, and Goods, and imprifonment during the King's
pleafure. In procefs of time, feveral other offences of a
like nature, with thofe that were the firft caufe of the
Statute, were made liable to the fame Penalty. So all the
Statutes of Praemunire, are only enlargements of thofe
made in the Reigns of Edward III and Richard II. In
general, the Praemunire, chiefly concerns offences com-
mitted in matters Ecclefiaftical, belonging to the Civil
Jurisdiction.

The Clergy were always fo intent upon favouring the
pretentions of the Court of Rome, that the endeavours of
trm former Parliaments had been incapable to ftop the
courfe of this abufe. The Statute I have juft mentioned,
was but little more effectual. The attempt, laft j ear, to
dethrone the King, giving him occafion to fear the like
Confpiracies for the future, he had refolved to ihew great
regard for the Clergy, in order to attach them to his
intereft. Accordingly, though he did not think proper
to refufe his aflent to the new Statute, he connived how-
ever at the breach of it, as much, or more, than any of
his Predeceffors. But this was not the only thing he did
to gain the affection of the Clergy. His condefcenfion for
them in another Article, of no lefs importance, drew on
him the bleflings of the Ecclefiafticks, and caufed him to
be confidered by the whole Body, as a Prince exceeding
zealous for the Church.

Since Wickliff firft publifhed his opinions, about the Statute a-
end of the Reign of Edward III, this Doctrine was foZ""'J i fl ""
fpread, that the Clergy were in continual apprehenfions willing.
of its prevailing. I have already related, that, in the Reign
of Richard II, the Bifhops obtained a general Licenfe to
imprifon Hereticks, without being obliged to have a parti-
cular Order from the Court ; but that the Houfe of Com-
mons caufed it to be revoked. From that time there
was no alteration, except that the King more frequently
granted fuch Orders. However, as the Penalty of Im-
prifonment was not capable to check the pretended Evil,
dreaded by the Bifhops, Henry, ever propofing to gain
the affection of the Ecclefiafticks, earneftly recommended
to the Parliament the care of the Church's concerns.
How reluctant foever the Houfe of Commons might be
to profecute the Lollards, the credit of the Court and ca-
bals of the Clergy, obtained at length an Act for the
burning of obftinate Hereticks (4). This Statute was no A L ,| Iali
fooner paffed, but the Ecclefiaftical Court immediately hint.
condemned one IVilliam Sawtre (5) a Lollard, who be- Aa - p "'°-
ing delivered over to the fecular Arm, was burnt alive V l p ''"
by vertue of the King's Writ (6) directed to the Mayor (7)

death in England, for the fake of Religion. During
this Seffion feveral Acts were likewife paffed (8) con-
cerning the Difputes between the Englijh and the Court
of Rome, which I fhall have occafion to (peak of elfe-
where (9).

Since the revolt of the Weljh, Henry had made no
preparations to reduce them to obedience. Mean while

tion of his Fraternity (6). Many more were apprehen-
ded, up:;n finding among the Papers of a certain Prieft,
a Lift of the names of thofe, that declared Richard was
alive. But upon ftrict examination, it appeared he had
made that Lift, on purpofe to make the news the more
probab,e, or upon groundlefs Conjedures. So, he fuffer-
ed alone the punifhmentof his rafhnefs. The King's great
feverity upon this occafion, contributed very much to
efface the good opinion conceived of his Clemency and
Humanity.

Whilft thefe things paffed in England, Henry was ne- M «ri« e . r

the reafon. Before he took up Arms againft the Weljh,
he was defirous of finifhing his affairs with France, and
even intended to make a ftrict Alliance with that Crown.
As he knew the Rebels could have no alliftance but
from thence, he believed, if he could deprive them of that
protection, they would not be able to fupport themfelves
long. Mean time, the Negotiation with France procee-
ding more fiowly than he wifhed, and Glendour ftill
continuing to infefthis borders, he could no longer delay judicial to them. This was the reafon that the Duke of



Marriages, the firft and laft were concluded this fame year"
but the Prince of Wales's did not fucceed.

Henry, in refolving to efpoufe the Duchefs Dowager iuc n n.f
