    • "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:
