Treaty of Newport
The Treaty of Newport was a failed treaty between Parliament and King Charles I of England, intended to bring an end to the hostilities of the English Civil War. Negotiations were conducted from 15 September 1648, at Newport, Isle of Wight.
Parliament appointed 15 Commissioners: Denzil Holles led a faction that represented a more conservative, Presbyterian interest, and were more inclined for a settlement that favoured the Crown; Henry Vane the Younger lead a faction that represented a more moderate, Independent interest, and though they were by no means radical, they acted to secure a settlement which would guarantee the rights gained by Parliament in the Puritan Revolution. Other commissioners included John Glynne, Nathaniel Fiennes, William Pierrepont, John Crewe, John Potts, Samuel Browne, John Bulkeley, Lords Pembroke, Salisbury, Middlesex, Northumberland, Saye and Sele, and Wenman.
