About Daniel Cromwell

Bound by Westchester Creek to the east and Pugsley Creek to the west, the peninsula of Castle Hill Neck was first settled in 1685 by John Cromwell, a cousin of Oliver Cromwell, the famed Puritan statesman and Lord Protector of England, Scotland, and Ireland.

John Cromwell's father, Colonel John Cromwell served in the Puritan forces, fighting against the Royalist army during the English Civil War. When the Puritans planned the execution of King Charles I, Colonel Cromwell spoke out against this extreme action. Serving as an emissary of Prince William of Orange, the ruler of the Netherlands, Colonel Cromwell delivered a plea to his kin, Oliver Cromwell, for the king's life. When the Lord Protector rejected the plea, Colonel John Cromwell fled in fear to the Netherlands.

His son, John Cromwell, eventually settled along with other Puritans in what is now the Bronx.
