Transcript (p. 108)
Sir Edw. Harwood, born nigh Bourn1, was a valiant souldier2 and a Pious Man3. His having killed a Man in private Quarrel put a period to all his carnal Mirth. No possible provocations could afterwards tempt him to a Duell; he refused all Challenges with more Honour than others accepted them, it being well known that he would set his foot as far in the Nose of his Enemy as any Man alive. He was one of the 4 standing Colonels in the Low Countreys, and was shot at the Siege of Mastricht 16324 (Fuller) 5
