http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_Wentworth Sir Philip Wentworth, Knight, of Nettlestead, Suffolk (1424 - 18 May 1464) was an English knight, Usher of the King's Chamber, King's Sergeant, Esquire of the Body, King's Carver, Sheriff of Norfolk and Suffolk, Knight of the Shire for Suffolk, Constable of Llanstephen and Clare Castles, and Chief Steward of the Honour of Clare.  

From Douglas Richardson's Plantagenet Ancestry (see above Wikipedia link): "In 1458 Sir Philip and his mother, Margery, Lady Ros, and their children "of both sexes" received a papal indult that a confessor of their choice may absolve them from all their vows and grant them absolution for their sins. Philip Wentworth served in the army of King Henry VI of England, and died intestate 18 May 1464, being beheaded at Middleham, Yorkshire, after the Battle of Hexham, where he had been taken prisoner by the Yorkists. His wife, Mary, was buried at the Friars Minor at Ipswich, Suffolk."

Sir Phillip Wentworth fought for King Henry VI in The Wars of the Roses, which were a series of dynastic wars fought between supporters of two rival branches of the royal House of Plantagenet: the houses of Lancaster and York (whose heraldic symbols were the "red" and the "white" rose, respectively) for the throne of England. They were fought in several sporadic episodes between 1455 and 1485, although there was related fighting both before and after this period. The final victory went to a relatively remote Lancastrian claimant, Henry Tudor, who defeated the last Yorkist king Richard III and married Edward IV's daughter Elizabeth of York to unite the two houses. The House of Tudor subsequently ruled England and Wales for 117 years. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wars_of_the_Roses
