Andrew Trollope after the Second Battle of St Albans, 1461 - Original Painting by Graham Turner Andrew Trollope - original painting Ref: GT-AT

Andrew Trollope established his reputation as a professional soldier in France before being promoted to the important post of Master Porter of Calais, from where his acts of piracy gained him some notoriety. His decision not to back his captain, the Earl of Warwick, at Ludford Bridge, and to lead the Calais garrison over to the king, would subsequently see his talents used to great effect by the Lancastrians at Wakefield and against Warwick at the Second Battle of St. Albans. After the victory Prince Edward made several knights; 'The fryste that he made was Androwe Trolloppe, for he was hurte and myght not goo for a calletrappe in hys fote; and he sayde, "My lorde, I have not deservyd hit for I slowe but xv men, for I stode stylle in oo(one) place and they come unto me, but they bode stylle with me."

With the battle won, Andrew Trollope takes a moment to have his injured foot seen to, before being summoned into the royal presence by the approaching herald. The pauldrons (shoulder defences) of his Milanese armour are being removed, revealing the points (laces) that attach the pieces of armour to the arming doublet beneath. The billman behind him wears the badge of Lord Clifford on his livery, with a bend (diagonal sash) overall: 'And be-syde alle that, every man and lorde bare the Pryncys levery, that was a bende of crymesyn and blacke with esteryge (ostrich) fetherys.'
