The first we knew of Alice was NOTE II of the family bible, "Passages from The Diaries of Mrs Philip Lybbe Powys", edited by Emily J Climenson and published by Longmans Green in 1899.
The above eventually led me to GEC's superb Complete Peerage and found therein a short article on John, Lord Lisle. This in turn led me to find the article on him in the British Dictionary of National Biography, leading on rapidly to the articles on Alice Lisle herself and those on the two men she sheltered, John Hicks and Richard Nelthorpe. I also found her in that useful but none-too-thorough compendium, Burke's Commoners.
I put all this on this internet site.
This then led to a fascinating correspondence with Phil Roberts who had taken a special interest in this case and had obtained copies of the text for both Alice's trial and her speech at the executioner's block, now added to this site. He also provided a useful outline of the events. Finally he takes the view that Alice was, of course, guilty.
