The gallant Colonel had been a member of Warwick for some years before being asked to represent Coventry in 1654 and 1656. It’s debatable that he may have signed the death certificate of Charles I, but he died just before the trial of the Regicides after the Restoration, and so escaped punishment. When Charles I was given the 'red card' at his trial, he was said to have been nervous when placing his head on the chopping block. Really? Does surprise me, I fancied the gallant Roundhead Colonel picking up his head and declaring "Yep, guess that does the trick".

Yes Rob, Pearl Hyde was much respected and I remember her.
