The Mystery of the Ancient House: John Sutton

Did Charles II hide in Ipswich’s Ancient House during his epic flight after the battle of Worcester in 1651? While compelling evidence exists to refute this idea, a more distant association between the

two can be established. For the woman who played the most vital role in Charles II’s preservation – the royalist heroine Jane Lane

– almost certainly took refuge in the Ancient House when she herself was on the run shortly after the Merry Monarch’s Great Escape. This is a tale of derring-do, intrigue and suspense.
