Chapter IX
MONKS KIRBY: A TROUBLED HISTORY

IT WILL be observed that in the long indictment drawn up against Sir Thomas no mention whatever is made of any attack on monastic property at Monks Kirby -- an "alien" house at this period assigned to the Carthusian Order at Axholme, Lincs. Yet it was because of a complaint from this source that the King's warrant to arrest Sir Thomas was issued on July 13, 1451, at Westminster. The warrant was directed to Humphrey, Duke of Buckingham, and Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick, and was couched in the following terms:

Know that for a few certain and notable causes set forth in our presence and the presence of our Council we have assigned you to take and arrest Thomas Malory, knight, and John Appelby, servant of the same Thos. Malory, wherever they may be found -- as well within liberties as without -- and to find sufficient mainpernors [sureties] who will be willing to give mainprise for them under good and sufficient penalty, to be enforced by you according to your reasonable discretion, that they, nor either of them, shall cause no injury or evil to the Prior and convent of the Carthusian Order of the Isle of Axholme or to any of our people, nor shall burn their houses, nor shall procure or cause the same in any way, and that the same Thomas Malory, knight, and John Appelby in their persons shall appear in our presence and the presence of the Council aforesaid on the quinzaine of Michaelmas next to answer upon those charges which shall there and then be preferred against them.1
