 +====Colonel John Robinson====
 +In the First Civil War [[http://​yba.llgc.org.uk/​en/​s-ROBI-NSO-1530.html|John Robinson]] (1617-1681) raised a foot regiment for the King from Denbighshire. In 1648 he appears to have been in command of the Trained Bands of Northern Anglesey and declared for the King in the North Wales uprising. After Royalist forces were defeated at Beaumaris Robinson //"​thought it safer to commit himself to the mercy of the sea in a cock boat than to trust to Mytton'​s favour, and after a day and a night rowing arrived safe in the Isle of Man"//​.
