Kets Rebellion 1549

Hy1 Rebellions

How did the rebellion start? The rebellion started by the angry crowd at Wymondham who tried to pull down the fences of unpopular lawyer Flowerdew, but he tried to bribe people and encouraged them to attack the hedges of his enemy Robert Kett.
How did Flowerdew's plan backfire on him? kett joined the rebels and helped them tear down his own fences before leading them to Flowerdew's house where they ripped down his fences. Kett became their leader and his leadership turned the riot into a rebellion.
Where did the rebels March to? The rebels Marched to Norwich and camped on Mousehold Heath (12th July), there were 16,000 rebels.
What Kett do? and what was the Gentry's response? Kett produced a set of articles and waited for a response while the gentry did little to break up the rebellion as they felt powerless, the size of the rebellion had shocked them.
how did the leaders of Norwich deal with the rebels? The leaders of Norwich disagreed about how to deal with the rebels. Town was outnumbered and people sympathised with Kett so they decided not to use an army against the rebels.
What happened during 21st July? 21st July, a government herald arrived at Norwich, offering the rebels a pardon if they went home and government promised to stop enclosures, reduce the price of wool.
how did rebels respond to government's reaction? Many rebels wanted to accept the pardon but Ket said no, so the herald ordered Kett's arrest however the crowd became angry and he was forced to leave the city.
What did Somerset decide to do? Somerset sent a small army led by Marquis of Northampton to negotiate and cut off supply lines and offered a full pardon but only 20 accepted.
Who was Northampton? Northampton was a noble but he lacked any authority, his poor handling turned a popular demonstration into a full scale rebellion.
What did the Government then decide to do? the government fathered more troops led by the Earl of Warwick and Marched to Norwich, he offered the rebels a pardon but they refused so he attacked them.
What happened after the government attacked them? 3,000 rebels were killed and Kett was arrested and hanged with 49 other rebels.
what were the main causes of the rebellion? The main causes of the rebellion were social causes.
What was one of the main social causes? one of the main social causes was due to enclosure in wooded pasture areas. Enclosure helped landlords make money in the wool trade.
What did the local customs allow the gentry to do? Local customs allowed the gentry to pasture their own large sheep flocks on peasants and common land, so peasants were left with nothing. The fold course system.
How were the attacks on common rights another main social cause of the rebellion? Attacks on common rights were another social cause as landlords were ignoring peasant right. Townsend used the fold course system as the first step towards gaining more land at the peasants expense.
Why did the rebels not trust the system? They didn't trust the system to fight for their rights because they believed it sided with the gentry.
why did the commons dislike for the gentry turn into a rebellion? Kett said the government should force the gentry to stop attacks on people, most gentries did nothing until Warwick arrived and even provided food for the rebels as they were afraid.
Why was Local government impossible? Local government was impossible because there was no trust between the two groups, people could see the difference between their own loves and their lords.
How did people's anger grow worse? Attempt to start new trades in the city had failed so people's anger grew worse, people also disliked men like Flowerdew who made money out of land disputes and also worked for the gentry.
What did Anthony Fletcher believe to be cause of the rebellion? Anthony Fletcher says, 'The rebellion started because of the unrealistic social policy of Somerset who was being heavily criticised at this time.'
Who was Somerset known as? Somerset was known as the 'good Duke'. Kett was confident in Somerset's support.
How was the fact that there was no important nobles in the area at the time a reason for the rebellion? there was no important noble in the area at the time, gentry families fought over power and land with no one to control them, perhaps why they refused to join together against the rebels.
Why did the commons get angry? Government didn't accept complaints as valid which angered the commons.
Was there any religious causes? there are no attacks on the Protestant faith because many of the rebels were Protestants themselves however Kett wished for congregations to choose their own Priests as they were criticised for living in luxury.
Was there any other reasons for the rebellion? There were also personality clashes, for example people hated Flowerdew.
What impact did the rebellion have after? Somerset lost power because he didn't deal with the rebellions. Warwick's success in Kett's rbellion helped him gain the position of 'Protector Northumberland'. The rebellions marked a turning point in English Foreign Policy.
What was Northumberland forced to do after the rebellion was over? Northumberland was forced to make peace with Scotland and France because of the lack of military sources.
