Sir Francis is a well known and documented historical figure. He was educated at Oxford and led a revolt against henry VIII, protesting his church policies. Ironically he was a protestant and he was mainly backed by the common people in the North of England. The revolt was put down and he was hung at Tyburn. His lands were confiscated and evidently ended the long history of the Bogod's as a noble family in England from the time of Roger Bigod (1050-1107) to the death of Sir John in 1537.

Biography Sir Francis Bigod was ‘a man that no doubt loved God, and feared his prince, with a right obedient and living fear’. Of gentle birth, he could trace his descent from two former baronial families, the Bigod earls of Norfolk and the Marshal earls of Pembroke. His paternal ancestors had been settled in the north for over 200 years, and during that time they had forged links with the leading families in the region. Bigod followed their example by his own marriage with the daughter of a lesser nobleman.
