Buried: All Saints Church, Huntingdon, England

Notes: born Henry Williams but later took his mother’s maiden name, Cromwell, in order to inherit. His mother was the daughter of the Lord Mayor of London. Known as the Golden Knight. He inherited wealth, but due to carrying out extensive building projects, e.g. a summer retreat at Ramsey, and a remodelling of Hinchingbrooke House, combined with the cost of his lavish entertaining, all bringing work and wealth to the neighbourhood, earned him his nick-name, but also depleted the family coffers. He served as Sheriff of Huntingdonshire four times, and represented the county in parliament on one occasion, but was not considered a figure of national importance at the time, although well thought of by the locals. He bestowed upon his second son Robert (Oliver Cromwell’s father) a house in Huntingdon known as the Friars, formerly the site of an Augustinian Priory. In 1590, Susan Weeks, Lady Cromwell, visited the Throckmortons of Warboys and had an exchange of words with Alice Samuel in which Alice uttered the fatal words “I never did you any harm as yet”. Soon after, Lady Cromwell fell ill and died.

Notes: His contacts with the Bourchier family put him in contact with London merchants and Puritan peers with interests in the American colonies. One of which was the Rich, Earl of Warwick.

Cromwell was Member of Parliament for Huntingdon, as was Sir Robert Payne during the same period and for Cambridge in the Long Parliament of 1640.

Oliver knew the younger Montagus (Edward and Walter) very well. Edward and Walter Montagu had been his exact contemporaries at Sidney Sussex and they had shared both revels and studies. (the King and the Gentleman)

During the Civil War Cromwell spent most of his time in the field but he managed to be present at Paliament and where he violently criticized the Bishops and and the Generals, including his own commanding officer, Edward Montagu, Earl of Manchester. The Montagu's were also high ranked officials of the Admiralty of which Pepys was a member.

He was a member of the House of Commons, Queen Anne's attorney in 1604. Oliver sold Hunchenbrook. He was a subscriber toward Virginia.
He captured between three and four hundred Scottish prisoners, at the battles of Dunbar and Worcester. These Cromwell transported to New England to be sold as slaves. He had defeated the Royalists in England and beheaded the King in 1649. Then he proceeded to the conquest of Ireland.
Did he have a son Thomas, who was related to Giles, perhaps a brother? Debug. Giles objected to the will of Thomas. Rev. John Wheelwright graduated with Oliver and intimate friend returned to England when Oliver (another) was Protector on behalf of colonists then run to Gasbury where he died
