http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Touchet,_5th_Baron_Audley

James Touchet, 5th Baron Audley, son of John Tuchet, 4th Baron Audley and his wife Isabel, was a distinguished veteran of the Hundred Years' War. In the opening phase of the Wars of the Roses he raised troops from his estates in Cheshire, Shropshire,Staffordshire and Derbyshire and commanded the Lancastrian force that moved to block the Yorkist Earl of Salisbury's route to Ludlow where he intended linking up with the rest of the Yorkist army. The two forces clashed in the Battle of Blore Heath on 23 September 1459 and Audley was killed, possibly by Sir Roger Kynaston of Stocks near Ellesmere. After the battle (Kynaston incorporated emblems of the Audley coat-of-arms into his own). Audley's Cross still stands on the battlefield to this day, and marks the spot where he died. Audley was buried in Darley Abbey, north of Derby, about 40 miles away from Blore Heath. Unfortunately, the Abbey no longer stands, so his final resting place is no longer marked. -------------------- James Touchet, 5th Baron Audley From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
