THIS DATE IN ENGLISH CIVIL WAR HISTORY

February 1st, 1644 – Sir Edward Dering of Kent, distressed by what he calls the Royalists’ “reckless and immoral” politics, resigns his commision in Charles I’s army and takes advantage of the pardon offer from the Parliamentarians. Many other Royalist officers from Kent do the same. Chuck the First is very displeased with these “defectors”, which, of course, is all the more reason to like them.
