Sir Thomas Wyatt (~1522-1554)


instigated "The Wyatt Rebellion of 1554" ...

The fear of England becoming re-Catholicised combined with the proposed marriage between Mary and Philip of Spain, led to the Wyatt Rebellion of 1554. This was a rebellion led by nobles principally Sir Thomas Wyatt from Kent, Sir Peter Carew from Devon, Sir James Croft from Herefordshire and the Duke of Suffolk from Leicestershire. However, it had one major weakness it did not have the popular support of the people across the land and was doomed to failure.
