Naseby

 

English village in Northamptonshire where on June 14, 1645, during the English Bourgeois Revolution of the 17th Century, the army of Parliament (7,000 infantrymen and 6,500 cavalrymen), reorganized by O. Cromwell and commanded by T. Fairfax, defeated the troops of Charles I (4,000 infantrymen and 4,000 cavalrymen).

Cromwell’s cavalry played the decisive role in the battle; it first routed the royal cavalry and then attacked the infantry from the flank and rear. More than 1,000 Royalists were killed, and 5,000 men and the entire artillery were captured. The victory at Naseby was the turning point in the civil war of 1642–46 for the Parliamentary forces.

If the identification made by David Kathman in The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography is correct, Charles Hart was the only one of the three from a theatrical family, son of the actor William Hart (who also appears to have been a freeman of the Weavers' Company), and born towards the end of 1625: Hart would therefore have been a full decade younger than the other two, not yet seventeen at the time of Edgehill, and nineteen at Naseby, when he was promoted to Captain and troop commander.
