FUNDS FOR DEFEATING WYATT'S REBELLION. The Kentish rising known as 'Wyatt's Rebellion' after its leader, Sir Thomas Wyatt the younger, broke out on 25 January: it was motivated in part at least by a desire to prevent the queen's marriage to Philip II of Spain. Wyatt reached Southwark on 3 February at the head of 3,000 men, and on the 7th attempted to advance into London from the west, but his force disintegrated, and he surrendered, to be executed on 11 April.
