Offices and lands came to John Howard by reason of that fellowship. Henry VI., when restored, summoned him to parliament in 1470 as Lord Howard, a summons which may have been meant to lure him to London into Warwick's power, but he proclaimed the Yorkist sovereign on his return and fought at Barnet and Tewkesbury.
For six months in 1470-1471 he emerged to hold a shadowy kingship as Warwick's puppet.
York himself only landed in England on the 8th of September, two months after Warwick's victory at North ampton.
After Warwick's success and Henry's restoration Margaret still remained in France.
So it was only on the very day of Warwick's defeat at Barnet (14th of April) that Margaret and Edward landed at Weymouth.
Hooper became Warwick's chaplain, and after a course of Lent lectures before the king he was offered the bishopric of Gloucester.
In foreign affairs also Edward thwarted Warwick's plans by favouring an alliance with Burgundy rather than France.
For six months Edward had to submit to Warwick's tutelage; then on the occasion of a rising in Lincolnshire he gathered an army of his own.
Clarence had made his peace with Edward, but was at enmity with his other brother Richard of Gloucester, who now married Warwick's second daughter and claimed a share in the Neville inheritance.
