[2359] A widower with five children, John Clopton, courted young Elizabeth Paston. She refused his marriage proposal, and her parents locked her in a dark room without food and almost beat her to death. Bloody but definitely unbowed, she held her ground. John would spend the rest of his long life overseeing the construction of Long Melford's Holy Trinity Church. And Elizabeth, why, she married twice, and became one of the wealthiest women in England. In 1485, John was summoned to be made a Knight of the Bath at the coronation planned for the young Edward V. However, while John was shining his armor, his kinsman was busy plotting murder, and John's chances of becoming a knight died along with the little Princes in the Tower.
