 +Peachey & Turton ((//War in the West: The Fall of the West vol 3 pp 361-2// Stuart Peachey & Alan Turton (1993) Stuart Press. ISBN 1858040353)) give this colonel as probably Francis. However the Journals of both the House of Commons and the Lords. ((//​Journals of the House of Commons, Volume 4, p.137// and //Journals of the House of Lords, Volume 7, p.364//)) and several later pay claims (see below) suggest it was John. 
 +
 +There are a number of possibilities here:
 +  *Two separate regiments one commanded by Francis & one by John - (However the histories and possible officers of the two overlap.)
 +  *A single regiment commanded by first Francis and then John - (However there is no evidence for a second Cocker amongst the regiments officers)
 +  *Francis, for whom no rank is given in the sources cited by Peachey & Turton, was not the regiments commander.
 +  *Francis commanded the Plymouth Trained Band, but when a volunteer regiment was formed it was under John.
