?Following the Pilgrimage of Grace (1536), Sir John Bulmer?s mistress, Margaret, swore she would rather be torn in pieces than leave him, and begged him to take her and their baby son into exile rather than face retribution. Instead, they launched a last-ditch attempt to revive the rebellion, and died at the block and the stake in consequence.?

Geoffrey Moorhouse, Weidenfeld and Nicolson)
John Bulmer (d. 1537) forfeited the estate of Atwick, Yorkshire, for his part in the Pilgrimage of Grace, but it was restored to his son Sir Ralph (d. 1558).
