1610 ca1648, Aug 28
a Royalist leader in the English Civil War. Lisle's execution without trial, following the siege of Colchester, came to be regarded as a serious miscarriage of justice and Lisle himself was seen as a martyr to the Royalist cause. He gained military experience in the army of the Prince of Orange during the 1630s. He served under Prince Rupert in the Dutch Wars, and was a captain in Lord Grandison's Regiment during the Bishops' War in Scotland. By 1644, Lisle had become a colonel. He was seriously wounded at the Battle of Naseby, and was knighted by King Charles I in December 1645, at which time he held the position of Master of the Household.
