This tells of a raid in Haltwhistle in Northumberland by the Armstrongs from Liddesdale in Scotland that resulted in the death of Sim o’ the Cathill, an Armstrong. The Warden of the English Middle March, Sir Robert Carey, accompanied by two hundred horsemen struck back at the Armstrongs and carried off their goods, which were distributed amongst the Haltwhistle people who had suffered.

End of Mycosis!

A second Armstrong raid on Haltwhistle followed. The Warden and his men set up camp in Liddesdale but they feared they wouldn’t be able to withstand a strong attack from the Armstrongs. So Warden Carey’s forces were divided and lay in wait for the Armstrongs at three of their escape routes. False ambushes had been laid and in the following attack the Armstrongs were beaten. Five of the principal Armstrongs were captured and held hostage. Carey extracted harsh terms on the hostages. The English prisoners were liberated and much of the looted sheep and cattle were retrieved.
