After much talke, the lords declaring, how ther was no prolonging of tymes and dayes so departed to their chamber, being intertained and cheared as apperteyned to their honors. On the next morow at the tyme prescribed, they had her furth as she was very fainte and feble, and in such case, that she was redy to swounde. iii. or. iiii. times betwene them. What should I speke here, that can not wel be expressed, what an heauy house there was to behold the vnreuerent and dolefull dealing of the Lordes, but especially the carefull feare and captiuitie their innocent Lady and mistres? Now to procede in her iorny, frō Asheridge al sicke in þe litter shee came to Redborne, where shee was garded all night: from thence to Saint Albons to syr Rafe Rowlettes house, where shee taried that night al heauy, both feable in body and comfortles in minde. From þt place they passed to Maister Doddes house at Mimmes, where also they remained that night, and so from thence shee came to Highgate. Where shee being very sicke, taried that night and the nexte daye, during which time of her abode, there came many purseuantes and messengers from the courte vnto the Lordes: but what aboute I cannot tell.

From that place she was conueyed to the court, wher by þe way came to mete her many gētlemen, to accompany her hyghnes, which were very sory to see her in that case: but especially a great multitude of people there were standing by the waye, who then flockinge about her litter, lamented and bewayled greatly her estate. MarginaliaLady Elizabeth brought vp to London.Now when she cam to the court her grace was there straight wayes shut vp, and kept as close prisoner a fortenight, seyng neither King nor Quene, nor Lord nor frend al that tyme, but onely then the Lord Chamberlain, sir Iohn Gage, and the Vicechamberlain, which were attendant vnto the doores. About whiche tyme syr William Sentlowe was called before the coūsel, MarginaliaSir William Sentlow committed to the whose charge was layde that he knew of Wyates rebelliō, which he stoutlye denyed, protestyng that he was a true man both to God and his Prince, defying al traytours and rebels: but beynge straightly examined, was in conclusion committed to the Tower.

In conclusion, after long debating of matters, they declared vnto her, that is was the quenes will & pleasure, that she should go vnto the tower, while the matter were further tryed and examined. Whereat shee beinge agast, sayde that shee trusted the Quenes maiesty woulde bee more gracious Lady vnto her, and that her highnes wold not otherwise conceyue of her, but that shee was a true woman, declarynge furthermore to the Lordes, that shee was innocent in all those matters wherein they had burdened her, and desired them therefore to be a further mean to the quene her sister, that she being a true woman, in thought, woorde, and deede towards her maiesty, might not bee cōmitted to so notorious and dolefull a place, protesting that she woulde request no mercye at her hand, if she should be proued to haue consented vnto any suche kinde of matter as they layde vnto her charge. And therefore in fine, desired their Lordshyps to thynke of her what she was, and that she might not so extremely be delt withall for her truth. Whereunto the Lordes annswered, that there was no remedy, for that the Quenes maiesty was fullye determined that she shoulde go vnto the tower, wherewith the Lords departed wyth their caps hanging ouer their eyes. But not longe after, within þe space of an hower or lytle more came foure of the foresayd Lordes of the Counsayl, with the gard, who warding the next chāber to her, MarginaliaLady Elizabeths seruantes remoued frō her.secluded al her gentlemen & yeomen Ladies and gentlewomen, sauing that for one gentleman Vsher, three gentlewomen, and two Groomes of her chamber, wer appointed in their roomes thre other men of the Quenes and three waytinge women, to geue attendance vpon her, that none should haue accesse to her grace.

In heauie mode her grace requested the Lordes that shee mighte tary an other tide, trusting that the nexte would be more ioyouse and better.
