Bolton Hall in the Ribble Valley was the home of the Pudsay family in the 15th century, and it was in 1464 that Sir Ralph Pudsay took the risk of hiding the Lancastrian King Henry VI, who was fleeing from his Yorkshire enemies after the defeat at the Battle of Hexham. Sir Ralph was quite a character having three wives and 25 children.
