his attachment to the Stuarts. He was
several times imprisoned, and had his lands
confiscated. Upon the restoration, how-
ever, lie obtained restitution, and was ap-
pointed by the king governor of Chester
Castle. In Pennant's Wales is recorded a
gallant exploit of this stout cavalier. During
the battle between Poyntz and Sir Marma-
dnke Langdale, on Rowton Heath, Colonel
Shakerley was commissioned to carry the
intelligence of an advantage of the Royalists
to the king, in Chester, then beleaguered, and
to avoid a troublesome circuit, he crossed
the Dee in a tub, his horse swimming at the
side ; and offered to carry back the king's
commands in a quarter of an hour, in the
same manner. Charles delayed, Poyntz
rallied, and the royal cavalry were des-
troyed, which put an end to his Majesty's
project of joining Montrose, who was then
in force in Scotland. Sir Geoffrey espoused
first, Katherine, daughter of William Pen-
nington, esq. of Muncaster, in the county
