Sir Anthony Morgan

Anthony Morgan (1621-1668) at first fought for the Royalists but came over to the Parliamentary side with Sir Trevor Williams in 1645. He impressed Fairfax, was given a captaincy in Colonel Henry Ireton’s Regiment of Horse and rose to be Major. He was a close ally of Henry Cromwell, sat as an Irish member in Parliament, but lost his commission in 1659, eventually ending up on the Royalist side once again and being knighted by Charles II. Pepys dined with him in 1668 and thought him a very wise man.
