2. The Regicides Marker
Edward Whalley and William Goffe were two of the seventy-six judges that signed the death warrant for English King Charles I. When Charles II became king, following the death of Oliver Cromwell, the judges were offered pardons if they surrendered. Some surrendered, many were executed or imprisoned. Whalley and Goffe fled to the colonies. They went to Boston, then New Haven, Connecticut. They spent three years in Milford. Finally they traveled to the then remote town of Hadley, Massachusetts.
