Fleetwoods regiment with his Major Harreson, what a cluster of preaching offecers and troopers ther is//.  After the Naseby, Langport and the siege of Bristol the regiment returned east, besieging remaining Royalist strongholds. Quartered at Islip, they prevented the Oxford horse from breaking out to join with Lord Astley, not involved directly in the Battle of Stow on the Wold, they nonetheless captured many fugitives. ​+The regiment was formed from Fleetwood’s Regiment of Horse of Manchester’s army and was said to be composed chiefly of Independents;​ //Look on Col.
