Lunsford committed a murderous assault upon Sir Thomas Pelham in 1633 and was outlawed for failing to appear to receive judgment in 1637. He was pardoned in 1639 and joined Charles I's army. He was appointed Lieutenant of the Tower of London in 1641. He was removed on petition from the Commons; knighted in 1641; made prisoner during the Battle of Edgehill in 1642 and released in 1644. He went to Virginia in 1649, where he died in 1656.
