The magnificent monument to Denzil Holles, 1st Baron Holles of Ifield stands in the north aisle of St Peter’s Church, Dorchester. When on 2nd March 1629 Sir John Finch, Speaker of the Houses of Parliament, tried to adjourn Parliament at the command of King Charles I, Holles along with Sir Walter Long held the Speaker down in his chair with the instruction that "he should sit still till it pleased them to rise". Holles, along with his associates, was tried, convicted and imprisoned in first the Tower of London and then Marshalsea Prison. Holles was released in early 1630. During the Civil War he fought on the Parliamentary side, but later he was critical of Cromwell, and campaigned for the restoration of the monarchy.
