But the North only saw six or seven months without military preparations within its boundaries. The third period of militarisation since the signing of the Covenant began in March 1642 just about the time Richard Eastbourne should have been issued with his pension, when Charles I arrived at York and began scheming the capture of the massive arsenal which was still lodged at Hull seven months after disbandment. This time the threat of force being raised came from within, rather than from across the border.
5 Over the next months and years as attitudes and postures hardened Johnston became embroiled in the oppositionist cause, influenced or comforted greatly by a prophetess, Margaret Mitchel or Mitchelson, ‘ane poore damaseil’, who gave Johnston the ‘best prognostication we could learne for our business’. Johnston recorded two visits to hear Mitchelson during the autumn of 1638, before she went to his house on 23 October where ‘hir presence [was] useful to me and myne’. 6 On 28 February 1638 at St Giles the first signatures were appended to the Covenant.
A third plan involved the raising of £400,000 in taxes across England and Wales from a wide social range, well beyond the normal bounds of taxation levies. Collection of this levy began quickly, but it was soon misappropriated. No money from any northern county was received at Westminster. It is certain that Charles redirected the collections in Wales to his own coffers during 1642, and it is possible that he was doing the same in the North whilst he was based in York. This does not mean that he was collecting vast sums of money, as the list that details the lack of payments from the North also shows that there was precious little coming in from even the home counties.
