> When he returned to England in 1660 the King granted various annuities and gifts to the people such as the Pendrill brothers and Jane Lane for their services. They were summoned to Whitehall Palace to attend the King and did so for a number of years. For Thomas Whitgreave and Richard Pendrell, Charles created annual pensions of £200 to be paid to them and £100 to the descendants of Richard Pendrell in perpetuity. At some point the Whitgreave pension lapsed (it may never have actually been paid) and so did Jane Lane’s because she had no children. The other Pendrell brothers also received lesser pensions. The pensions to the Pendrells are still being paid to a number of their descendants today.

Never-be-Ashley: The most interesting thing about King Charles the First is that he was 5 foot 6 inches tall at the start of his reign,
but only 4 foot 8 inches tall at the end of it.
Kongbuck: Historical information that I could find only went back to 1751, but using that inflation calculator, £200 in 1751 is the equivalent to over £40,000 in 2017.
Ron_Paul_2024: The story of how King Charles II escaped the clutches of the republican forces gave a new spark for love of the monarchy and the military style republican England made the English people want the return to having also a monarchy in England.
