Colonel Francis Lascelles, son of William Lascelles and Elizabeth Wadeson, was born probably shortly before his baptism at Sigston, Yorkshire, England, 5 August 1612.1,2 He died before 28 November 1667,1 when he was buried at Sigston, Yorkshire.1,2

Francis married Frances St. Quintin, daughter of Sir William St. Quintin, Knt., Bnt. and Mary Lacy, about 1626.1,3,2,4

Eldest son and heir to his grandfather, he was two weeks old at the visitation of 1612.

He was justice of the peace, colonel of the army of the parliament, and elected member of parliament for the North Riding of Yorkshire in 1645, 1653, 1654, 1656, & 1660.

He was one of the judges or regicides of King Charles I, but as he did not sign the death warrant, he escaped the fate that befell most of his fellows at the restoration.5,1
