Airmine was born at Ruckholt, the son of Sir William Airmine, 1st Baronet and his first wife Elizabeth Hicks, daughter of Sir Michael Hicks, of Beverstone Castle, Gloucestershire, and of Ruckholt, in Low Leyton, Essex. He was admitted to Gray's Inn on 18 November 1639. He served as commissioner of parliament for the Scots in 1643. In March 1646 he was elected Member of Parliament for Cumberland as a recruiter to the Long Parliament. He succeeded to the baronetcy on the death of his father on 10 April 1651.[1]
