He lived in exile in Holland with Charles II court until the Restoration in 1660. After a return to England, enemies at court included his name among those on a list of Catholic lords to be proscribed. He was committed to the Tower in October 1678 where he remained until a decision was made to put him on trial before the House of Lords on November 30, 1679. His enemies assured his condemnation by 55 votes to 31. He remained confined at the king's pleasure until he was attainted and beheaded on Tower Hill.
