Because they were controlled by a Calvinist Sect who wanted a Presbyterian Church similar to the one that had been achieved in Scotland! They also wanted to takeover the Church of England lock stock and barrel and they were more motivated than the Anglicans who didn't respond to the threats made till 1640/1. The Calvinists preparing since Elizabeth's time. Also by an enormous streak of good luck, the navy built up by Charles Ist, and complained about incessantly by the opposition, fell in to Parliament's hands at the beginning of the war!

Finally and these are the major points. East Anglia and London the major places of industry and wealth supported the Parliament.

Charles had to finance the war from the sale of his own goods and those of his supporters, Anglicans like Derby and Royalists such as Newcastle!
