Sons of Noblemen Series: Sir Henry Chicheley

Sir Henry Chicheley had served in the royal army before emigrating to the colony of Virginia. He was such a conspicuous adherent of the royal cause that the Puritan Council of State, in granting him a license to emigrate, required him to furnish security that he would do nothing prejudicial in the existing government. Sir Henry was the son of Sir Henry Chicheley and a brother of Sir Thomas Chichely of Wimpole.  Thomas Chicheley owned the home between 1640 and 1670. Pictured is Wimpole Hall,  a manor house begun in 1640, with its 3000 acres is now owned by the National Trust and are open to the public.
