John Mordaunt; this gentleman obtained great fame by his zeal in the cause of King Charles II., and stood a trial during the usurpation for his exertions in behalf of the exiled monarch, but upon which he was acquitted, by the connivance chiefly, as stated by Lord Clarendon, of the celebrated John Lisle, the presiding judge. The other judges were equally divided as to the guilt or innocence of Mr. Mordaunt, and the president gave the casting vote in his favour. He supseqently made several daring but fruitless attempts to restore the king, and for all those faithful services was, eventually, elevated to the peerage, 10 July, 1659, as Baron Mordaunt, of Rygott, со. Surrey, and Viscount Mordaunt, of Avalon, in Somersetshire. His lordship and Sir John Grenvile, were the bearers of the letters which the king, prior to his restoration, addressed to Monk, to parliament, and to the corporation of London. His lordship, after the Restoration, was constituted constable of Windsor Castle, and appointed lord lieutenant, and custos rotulorum of со. Surrey.

1 Charlotte, m. to Benjamin Albin, Esq.

CHARLOTTE MORDAUNT, the eldest daughter of Lord Mordaunt, married Benjamin Albin, but I know nothing more of her; her sister, Mrs. Hamilton, mentions her casually in her letters, which are among the old papers at Tollymore Park.
