About Percy Herbert, 2nd Baron Powis

...........Herbert, Sir Percy (c.1598-1667), 2nd Baron Powys The son and heir of Sir William Herbert, the first Lord Powis (see above). In 1621 he was elected MP for Shaftesbury after the sitting member was expelled from parliament. The following year he was created a baronet in his own right. He was involved in raising the trained bands for the county and was appointed to the Council for Wales and the Marches. In 1639 he was the collector for the county of the moneys contributed by Catholics for carrying on the war against the Scots. He was convicted of recusancy and treason in 1651 during the family's exile from Powis Castle and imprisoned. On his father's death in 1655 he became the second Lord Powis. In 1660 he headed the nobility and gentry of North Wales who met the newly restored Charles II and took back possession of Powis Castle. The order for the demolishing of the castle was rescinded apart from the removal of the outer works. Sir Percy himself seems to have lived at Buttington. [MW; "Powis Castle"- National Trust]
