To the above should be added that, when the Cornish forces later lifted the siege of Exeter, the Cornish leader, Humphrey Arundell, ordered that all citizens be allowed to leave unharmed, refusing to sink to the depths to which the English army and their mercenary reinforcements had sunk. Arundell had already forbidden the firebombing of the city, which had been suggested to him by Breton gunner John Hammon.

Were there no Cornish baddies? Well, yes, there was one. John Kessell, Humphrey Arundell's secretary, who was passing intelligence of his own master's tactics, plans and movements to Russell and Grey.
