Robert Phayre< Back to author list
Colonel Robert Phaire, (1619?–1682), was an officer in the Irish Protestant and then the New Model armies and a Regicide. He was one of the three officers to whom the warrant for the execution of Charles I was addressed, but he escaped severe punishment at the Restoration through having married the daughter of Sir Thomas Herbert (1606–1682). He became a Muggletonian in 1662.Among some of his descendants in the later 1700s the surname was modified to Phair however caution is recommended because some families who were not descendants (such as some of the surname Fair) also took on this spelling. The senior line (descendants of Onesiphorus), continued the spelling Phaire until the early 1800s when they restyled to Phayre ).
