More Details

A broadside of a proclamation issued by King Charles II calling for the arrest of the regicides Edward Whalley and William Goffe. Edward Whalley was a leader in Cromwell's army, and also one of the signatories to the death warrant for Charles I. William Goffe, Whalley's son-in-law, also served as a judge at the trial of the king, and was a Roundhead politician and military leader. At the Restoration, Whalley and Goffe fled to the colonies in New England. Charles II issued this warrant for their arrest, though neither were ever detained or tried. Whalley died ca. 1675, and Goffe ca. 1679. References: Wing C3316; Thomason, 669.f.26[9]; Steele, I, 3257; ESTC R210773.
