Moyles Court  Hampshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Moyles Court like this:

MOYLES COURT, an old mansion, now a farm-house, in Ellingham parish, Hants; among wooded hills, 3 miles N of Ringwood. It was the seat of the Lisles, one of whom, Col. Lisle, was one of the judges on the trial of Charles I.; and it gave shelter to certain fugitives from the field of Sedgemoor, at the hand of the Colonel'swidow, Lady Lisle, who, for that act, though herself of undoubted loyalty, was condemned to death at Winchester by Judge Jeffreys. ...

Her story is graphically toldin Lord Macauley's " History of England;" and is the subject of a fresco in the new palace of Westminster, where she is represented concealing the fugitives. A monument of her is in Ellingham churchyard.
