  • ID: I4932
  • Name: John Fitzwalter Radcliffe
  • Suffix: 9th/1st Baron Fitzwalter
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: 1 JAN 1451
  • Death: 24 NOV 1496 in Guines, Calais, France
  • Cause: Beheaded following his support of Perkin Warbeck
  • Note:

    The 9th Baron however made a habit of quarrelling with his neighbours and as a result was deprived of his local offices, which may be why he actively supported the pretender Perkin Warbeck in 1493. When his treachery was discovered he was arrested and delivered to court on the 20th January 1495 and condemned for treason. He was subsequently transported to the fortress of Guines in Calais where, after a failed escape attempt, he was executed sometime around the 24th November 1496.
    Sir John Radcliffe and his wife, Margaret, were married before 6 July 1475, when the manor of Attleborough, Norfolk and other lands in Norfolk were settled on them and the heirs of their bodies by a deed of that date [Reference: FitzWalter Peerage Case, Minutes of Evidence, 1842-1843, pp.350-365]
