He was created a baronet by Charles I and was a moderate Royalist. He lost his seat during the Civil War, but returned to Parliament after the Restoration in 1661. This pamphlet reprints urging moderation in efforts to limit the king's power. Doing so will enable the efforts of "disturbers and subverters of our peace, our liberties, and our lawes."
