Blundell, a noted Catholic, had been called before the Court of the Star Chamber for inciting rioting in 1624. Blundell was found guilty and ordered to pay heavy fines (he had incited another riot when bailiffs had attempted to collect a previous fine). In 1631 the King pardoned Blundell and reduced the fines to a manageable level ((//The Civil Wars In Lancashire 1640-1660//,​ Stephen Bull 2009, Carnegie Publishing ISBN:​978-1-85936-191-7)).
