Castle Defender

Norfolk > Castles > New Buckenham Castle

... By 1461 the castle was owned by Sir John Knyvet, a Lancastrian supporter in the Wars of the Roses. The Yorkist king Edward IV sent troops to subdue the castle but they were beaten back by loyal soldiers led by Sir John's wife Alice. According to reports at the time Alice Knyvet stood atop the castle keep and shouted to the enemy that she would die defending the castle. She had no need to, for the king's men retreated.

Contained in the Patent Rolls of King Edward IV’s reign is a story detailing the defence of Bokenham Castle by Alice Knyvet. In 1461, Edward IV claimed Bokenham Castle by virtue of legal inquisition. The castle was, at the time, owned and occupied by John and Alice Knyvet, who did not easily relinquish their estate. The king sent nine commissioners and an escheator to take the castle, possibly knowing that John was away and the castle would be easily handed over.
However, as they approach the outer ward, Alice appeared in the gatehouse tower with the drawbridge raised who kept the castle ‘with slings, parveises, fagots, timber, and other armaments of war’ (CPR, 1461-7, p. 67). We are told that Alice along with William Toby of Old Bokenham, gentleman, and fifty other persons were ‘armed with swords, glaives, bows and arrows’.
