Sir Harry Vane (the younger)
Person Male Born 1613 Died 14/6/1662
Statesman. Born Debden. As a Protestant dissenter he failed to secure the advancements at the King's court for which he had hoped and so set off to the newly established Massachusetts where he was elected Governor. Returning to England he joined in the revolution against Charles I but opposed the execution of the King and so fell out with Cromwell as well. On the restoration of the monarchy he was charged with treason, arrested at his Hampstead home, and beheaded at Tower Hill.
