Robert Lundy ( - c.1717):
Robert Lundy was sent to Derry in 1688 to command a small garrison which had declared allegience to William III and opposition to James II. As soon as he was threatened with the approach of the opposing army, he announced his intentions of surrendering, and those who desired to resist removed him from office. He was permitted to escape to Scotland in disguise, where he was captured and was for a short time held in the Tower of London. His fate after his release is not known. His effigy is burnt each year when the siege of Derry is commemorated.
