    1642 · The English Civil War
    Age 10
    A series of conflicts regarding England's governance during the years 1642 to 1651 is now known as The English Civil War. Charles I summoned supporters to join him against his enemies in Parliament. In October 1642, nearly 10,000 men fought for Charles I and chased Parliament across the River Tamar. Fighting continued for years and was finally ended at the Battle of Worcester on September 3, 1651, with a Parliamentarian victory.

    Name Meaning

    From a Norman French form of the ancient Germanic name Aveza, derived from a short form of one or more compound names containing the first element av (as in Ava ; the meaning is uncertain). The correspondence in form to the Latin word avis ‘bird’ is coincidental.
