Near this 15th century house on the opposite side of the way stood in 1472 the home of Robert and Joan Wolsey, where the great child of honour Thomas Wolsey, cardinal, archbishop, chancellor, passed his boyhood. In hi power and pride he ranked himself with princes and trod the ways of glory. In his fall he died a humble man at Leicester Abbey about the hour of eight on the morning of November 29th 1530 and was there buried at dead of night
