WHALLEY, EDWARD, regicide; born in England, presumably about 1620; joined the Parliamentary party in the revolution of 1642; led a command which defeated the cavalry of Sir Marmaduke Langdale at Naseby in 1645, for which he was appointed colonel. Later he had charge of King Charles at Hampton Court, and was one of the members of the high court of justice which pronounced the death penalty against him, and also one of the signers of his death warrant. He fled to America with William Goffe, his son-in-Iaw, after the restoration. He died in Hadley, Mass., about 1678.
