That’s an interesting link, thanks! I don’t have a better… although I’ve got a fair bit on Wat Tyler’s rebellion in my hard-copy library I’m sure.
I’ve heard at least one different version of that story, possibly apocryphal. In that version, the men of St. Alban’s still burn the Abbey records that hold them in usurious debt, but instead of breaking up the mill-stones the descendants of their original owners triumphantly take them back to their homes. Then later, when Tyler is murdered and the rebellion crushed, the peasants hurriedly sneak back into the Abbey and replace the stones, in (vain) hopes of escaping retribution from the Abbot’s bullies.
