  • Notes 
    • "Major Genl. Poyntz in the army of the Parliament is well known, but most of his kinsmen were fighting for the King. Captn. Newdigate Poyntz was killed at Gainsborough; and as he had assigned his property before the Civil War began, his estate was nominal: yet a fine of 30 was imposed on his widow, who lodged this short petition:

      30 Apl. 1646. The humble petition of Mary Poyntz widdowe late wife of Newdigate Poyntz deceased. Sheweth that yor petnr' husband was Captain of a troope of horse under the command of Colonel Candish in the garrison of Newark and at the Seige of Gainsborough he was slaine.

      The widow's case was urged by Speaker Lenthall, who wrote thus on her behalf to the Committee at Goldsmiths' Hall:

      'Gentlemen, This bearer's late husband Captain Newdigate Poynes haveinge beene in armes about three yeares since, and he now being dead and she lefte with five younge children, her case hath been specially recommended to mee by her brother Major Gen1 Poynes now at ye seige at Newarke, that you and the house might be acquainted therewith, hee makeing it his request that she might receive favor for his sake; wheh I am confident ye house will doe; nevertheles she desires herewith to present herselfe and her case unto you wch I shall upon sight according to ye desire of Gen1. Poyntz acquaint you withall and the house when it shall come thither, ever resting

      Yor assured friend
      Wm. Lenthall
      30 April 1646" [2]
