In 1642 England broke into civil war when the Parliamentary troops fought the Royalists. The Brisco family like many in the period were split in their loyalty. As they had been for over 500 years previously most of the family were loyal to the crown and fought in the Cavalier Army alongside King Charles I, an ancestor of the current family. However not everyone! William Brisco MP was known to be a strict Parliamentarian and served under Cromwell, at first to his reward but ultimately his downfall.
