A List of officers claiming the sixty thousand pounds granted by His Sacred Majesty—Edward Tyldesley


As noted in a previous post, in 1663 Henry Brome published a list of the officers entitled to share the £60,000 made available under a statute to those officers who had served Charles I and Charles II.

The list was entitled: A List of officers claiming the sixty thousand pounds &c. granted by His Sacred Majesty for the relief of his truly-loyal and indigent party which list is made publique by the consent and at the desire of the honourable the commissioners appointed by act of Parliament for distribution of said moneys. It included the names of 8 men who had served under Sir William Bradshaigh, including Edward Tyldesley:
Sir William Bradshaw
Capt Edw Tildsly HORSE
L John Duhurst
Cap Tho Brockhills
Lieut John Neale (Lieut to Cap Dunhill)
Corn John Foster (Corn to Maj Tho Vavasor)
Qu John Valmsly (Qu to Maj Tho Vavasor)
Q Will Michell
Q Will Tomlinson
Edward Tildsly is presumably Edward Tyldesley 1635—1685, though he would have been a minor at the time of the English Civil War. In addition to being eligible for a payment under the statute, he was also one of those listed to become a Knight of the Royal Oak before the creation of this new order was abandoned.

The list also included Sir Thomas Tyldesley 1612-1651.
