      Sir Oliver Cromwell 1563 -- Aug 1655
      Born in Sir Oliver Cromwell 1563 -- Aug 1655
      Born in Hitchenbrook, Huntingtonshire, England. Was known as Sir Oliver Cromwell of Hitchenbrook. Married first to Elizabeth Bromley, daughter of Sir Thomas Bromley, the Lord Chamberlain of England, in Tamworth Castle, Staffordshire. Married second to Lady Anne Hiffman, widow of Seignor Horatio Palvincuni of Genoa. Knighted at the coronation of James I. Died in Ramsey, Huntingtonshire. Buried at Ramfey, 28 August 1655, aged 93.
      Siblings included Robert (father of Oliver, the Protector); Henry, d 29 Oct 1630; Elizabeth; and Henry II, who died young. All from [ColFam]. Or, Robert; Sir Philip; Joan [Zinkie].
      Sir Oliver was to see the end of Elizabeth's reign and would be the first to entertain James VI of Scotland as he traveled south to London to assume the throne as James I of England. He arranged a meeting in his home where James would confer with three influential Puritan ministers who presented him with the Millenary Petition. This asked for mild reforms and an ecumenical meeting between the chuch Bishops and the Puritans to iron out differences. James was open to the idea of a new translation of the Bible and this occasion was used to set up the Hampton Court Conference which produced the King James Version of the Bible. Oliver's lavish entertainment set the standard of that day. His home was so popular that the King too often returned. The family wealth was exhausted by the time of his death. [TimC]
