    1642 · The English Civil War

    Age 16

    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

    English (Suffolk): variant of Munning, with post-medieval excrescent -s. Munning is from the Middle English personal name Munding (Old English Munding, a derivative of names in Mund- or -mund). This form of the surname is the more common one in Britain.
