Bridget Lisle

ID#  1608
     Bridget Lisle married Leonard Hoar, son of Charles Hoar and Joanna Hincksman.

"She was a daughter of John Lord Lisle, president of the high court of justice, lord commissioner of the great seal, who drew the indictment and sentence of King Charles I and was murdered at Lausanne, August 11, 1664, and of his wife, Lady Alicia Lisle, who was beheaded by the brutal judgment of Jeffries in 1685. The story of her arrest on a charge of treason for sheltering rebels, her condemnation to be burned alive and her execution by beheading, with all the cruel, ghastly details, forms a disgraceful page in English history." --SOURCE: New England Families G&M.
