"from the battle at Sedgemore"

The Battle of Sedgemoor was fought on 6 July 1685, near Bridwater in Somerset, England.  It was the final battle of the Monmouth Rebellion, and followed a series of skirmishes around south west England between the forces of James Scott, 1st Duke of Monmouth, and the army loyal to the reigning King, James II.  The royalist forces prevailed and about 500 troops were captured. Monmouth escaped from the battlefield but was later captured and taken to London for trial and execution.
