"John Hampden was one of the most remarkable figures to emerge from the English Civil War era. Scholar, statesman and soldier, he was as adept on the battlefield as he was brilliant in Parliament. In 1643, the first year of the Civil War, he was fatally wounded at the Battle of Chalgrove Field. A cousin to Oliver Cromwell, he was a subtle debater and a great Parliamentarian. He was the first member of the House of Commons to achieve a reputation outside Westminster and a truly national popularity. Born into a family of great wealth and powerful connections, Hampden took a robustly independent stand against Charles I's arbitrary style of government, refusing to pay the cynically enforced Ship Money tax and forcing the King to recall Parliament for the first time in eleven years as a result." --
