1589 ca1662, Sep/Oct 12
an English author and politician who sat in the House of Commons from 1640 to 1644. He supported the Royalist cause in the English Civil War. He was called to the bar at Middle Temple in 1615 and was Lent reader in 1640. As Reader, he delivered two discourses to the effect that 'a parliament may be held without bishops,' and that 'bishops may not meddle in civil affairs.' The lectures attracted the notice of William Laud, and Bagshaw was prohibited from continuing them. He was later arrested and sent to the King's Bench prison at Southwark in 1644. While imprisoned, he composed the greater number of his works, mostly legal treatises.
