  30    Hen. Falconberg [in October 1330 William de Eland/Elland and other knights led Edward III through a series of passages off "Mortimer's Hole"under Nottingham Castle to arrest Mortimer. Henry de Falconberg is the Sherriff at the time! Is this the hated Sheriff  of Nottingham mentioned in the ballads of Robin Hood? At this point Edward III truly becomes king, this may be the "Comly King" who meets with the"Contrariants" still hiding in the 'Greenwood' where he pardons them.
Henry de Falconberg/Faucumberg has been ousted and his control over the forest of  Sherwood and South Yorkshire are at an end.
These relict outlaws from the Battle of Boroughbridge had been opposed to Edward II, Gaveston and the Despensers but then supported Queen Isabella & Roger de Mortimer whilst Falconberg was given a third tenure as Sheriff of Nottingham. After the Nottingham coup they now  had a  new, young and Arthurian King
Wm. de Elland, Wm. de Midgley and other Yorkshire  supporters are knighted after this time. They supported Edward II against Lancaster and then later opposed Isabella and Mortimer becoming followers of John 8th earl of Warrene.
