    Excerpt from John Munroe and Old Barnstable, 1784-1879: Sketch of a Good Life

    Ealogical Record from which I quote the following: William Munroe was the first person of the name known in America. In one of the bloody contests be tween the crown and the people in the reign of Charles lst, William Munroe, who was a soldier in the King's army and a loyalist, was taken prisoner by Cromwell at the Battle of Dun bar on the heights of Scotland. For this he was exiled from his country and with a shipload of soldiers sent to America. This was in 1640, twenty years after the landing of the Pilgrims at Plymouth. As prisoners of war they were compelled to work three days in the week for their masters and three for themselves. After a time they were able to buy their Freedom, and from this were called Redemptioners. 'l'hey established their homes in Lex ington, and History tells us that being an united family, they builttheir houses together, each one making his house an addition to the next, so that the long row of one story buildings resembled a Rope work. Though nvilliam Munroe championed a cause that failed and was sacrificed to the will of a tyrant, he was a true patriot to his King and country, and for his loyalty banished with many others from home and exiled to America. Though in England the established author ity was overthrown and kingly rule assumed by a usurper, it nevertheless proved the begin ning of a Constitutional Govern ment and gave the people their first authority in the making of laws and later establishing the Parliament of two houses, Lords and Commons, the established rule of England today.
