William Laud en
William Laud was Archbishop of Canterbury from 1633 to 1645. One of the High Church Caroline divines, he opposed radical forms of Puritanism. This, and his support for King Charles I have been considered by some as reasons for his beheading, which was brought by 10 specific articles of Attainder, in the midst of the English Civil War.
