 Lieutenant Colonel under Skippon he led the regiment on Fairfax’s Western campaign of 1645. Eventually promoted, he led the regiment as Colonel during their time in Scotland, though was often absent in London. In 1659 he was of Fleetwood’s party, and in July was sent to inspect Dunkirk. He supported Lambert and was cashiered. In 1660 he was ordered to leave London on pain of arrest. He was probably the Quaker Richard Ashfield who died in Newgate Prison in 1677 after being imprisoned for non-conformity. Lieutenant Colonel under Skippon he led the regiment on Fairfax’s Western campaign of 1645.
