Sir Bevil Grenville & Anthony Payne
Sir Bevil Grenville, also dubbed ‘the most generally loved man in Cornwall’, was a royalist who fought for his King and beliefs. Under the command of Sir Ralph Hopton, Sir Bevil was an essential part of the battles of Braddock Down and Stratton where he led his Cornishmen heroically. By his side was Anthony Payne, considered his bodyguard and known as the Cornish Giant who stood at a staggering 7 foot and 4 inches, he loyally stood by his commander till his death at Lansdowne 1643.
The European wars that devastated the continent in the 17th Century were commanded by kings, nobles and the gentry, some of whom were well versed in the minutiae of battlefield strategy and tactics. Although many led by example, sometimes bravely leading their troops in hand-to-hand combat if necessary, a General’s main role was to thoroughly plan his campaigns rather than getting involved with the riff raff. He is a gentleman after all…
Many Generals went to the battlefield in their personal coach. As the old adage says, any fool can be uncomfortable!
Pulled by four fine steeds and driven by a trusty retainer, the Warlord Games General’s coach is the ideal place for an army commander to consider the upcoming campaign and enjoy a glass or two with what looks like his ‘niece’…
The Earl of Essex famously travelled with his own coffin in his coach, just in case. That may have been a little dispiriting for his troops!
