Barker, who sue the bond, may produce it to this committee, to be disposed of as you think fit. 136 64a

Thomas Bulkley, alias Lord Bulkley, Beanmaris, Co. Anglesea, and Richard, his Son.

21 Nov. 1649. Vol. A No. or p.
Information that Thomas Bulkley, being of great power and command in the county, victualled Beaumaris Castle upon pretence for service of the State, but in pursuance of the design for the revolt of Anglesea in 1648. He was a great contriver of it, and resumed the authority of the Commission of Array to put in execution the said design. During the revolt he held correspondence with the rebels in Ireland, the Isle of Man, and the Scots, and agreed with some contrivers of the revolt to send Capt. Martin as an agent to Charles Stuart, the late King's son, for a commission and instructions, tending to promote the war against Parliament. Upon some jealousy of Martin's fidelity, he dismissed him from his agency, and employed Major Phillips in his place. 21 306
That Richard, the son, acted as general in the revolt, without a commission but from his father and his confederates, and both father and son gave intelligence to, and held correspondence with, Charles and his adherents beyond seas; Richard, secretly flying away from his own country, has been beyond seas for that purpose, until the passing of the Act, and waited upon Charles in foreign parts. Had it not been for Thomas and Rich. Bulkley, there had been no revolt in Anglesea; notwithstanding upon the first reducement of it to Parliament, on his covenant and promises of fidelity, Thomas was freed by Ordinance from delinquency, and put in all commissions of the peace and of deputy-lieutenancy, and most places of trust. At the very time of plotting the revolt he, by letters and otherwise, swore all fidelity to Parliament, yet within a few days after, openly violated his faith, and made war against Parliament. Thomas and Richard were prisoners of war, and are disabled and made incapable of the benefit of the Act for General Composition of North Wales, by several orders and votes of Parliament which are not yet repealed. Thomas has public money in his hands, for which he ought to have accounted, and has not discovered or paid the same to the Treasurers for the Army, within the time limited by the Act.
