'Mother, I commend myself to you and let you know, blessed be God, my brother John is alive and fares well, and in no peril of death. Nevertheless he is hurt with an arrow on his right arm beneath the elbow, and I have sent him a surgeon which has dressed him, and he tells me that he trusts that he shall all whole within right short time.'
Sir John Paston at the Battle of Barnet, 1471 - print from a painting by Graham Turner Pastons at Barnet Ref: Gic-G302

Having allied themselves with the Earl of Oxford to help promote their own local interests, the Paston family had no alternative but follow him during the crisis of 1471, and Sir John Paston and his brother (confusingly also John) found themselves in the Earl's retinue at the battle of Barnet, on a foggy Easter Sunday, 14th April 1471.

Sir John wrote the above words in a letter to his mother on the 18th April, after they had found themselves to be on the losing side, to reassure her that although his brother had been wounded, they were safe. The remarkable surviving Paston family correspondence provides an almost unique window into this period of history, adding a personal, human element to the tumultuous events of the Wars of the Roses.
