During the English-Scottish Wars, the King of England was preoccupied with the Hundred Years’ War in France. The border defense thereby fell largely to the Percy Family of Northumberland. During a border raid, the Scottish leader, Archibald IV, Earl of Douglas, was captured at a battle on Homildon Hill by the Percys, led by the younger Sir Henry "Hotspur" Percy. Henry IV demanded the prisoner so he could collect the ransom himself. This demand, though obeyed, was the seed that began the long Percy Family revolt that ended years later with the Battle of Bramham Moor. Hotspur was considered the greatest knight of the realm and held honour sacred.

We have named this hand and half sword for Hotspur and that battle. The fullers are engraved in Latin with the inscription Who lives in falsehood slays his soul; whose speech is false, his honour, something Hotspur took to heart.
