Sir (1617, knighted by James I)

[During the seige of Carlisle (1645)] [e]ventually provisions began to grow scarce but Glemham, following his experience in Europe, persuaded the garrison to eat horse flesh. Glemham set the example himself, when one of the Scot's horses was killed during a skirmish with the garrison The shot horse was fetched into town; being a very stately beast, very fat, and because he was not to be cured, [Sir] Thomas Glemham eat him [at] his own table. This was the first horse flesh eaten in Carlisle siege. Later horse became the staple diet of the garrison and few of their own horses remained uneaten. When this too began to run out hempseed, dogs cats and even rats are said to have been eaten, one acccount speaks of them as having eaten things most reluctant to nature. [The Sealed Knot]  -30-
