    (Ragland is also also called Raglan Castle)
    .
    The siege and capture of Ragland castle, by Fairfax, in August, 1646, A.D., when the library, containing a great treasure of MSS., was destroyed, has been the subject of much lamentation; and the opprobrium of the deed has been laid (as is usual) upon Oliver Cromwell, who was not in the least concerned in it.
