-Randle Ashenhurst'​s regiment were formed by the authority of Ferdinando, Lord Fairfax after Ashenhurst left the service of Sir John Gell. Therefore they officially formed part of the Parliamentarian Northern Association,​ but do not appear to have served with the Faifaxes'​ field army. Ashenhurst'​s ​brother was captured in a skirmish between Hartington and Leek in the Derbyshire Peak District in November 1643, according to the Duchess of Newcastle'​s Memoirs, although it's uncertain whether the regiment was in existence at this time. In March 1644 a //Colonel Ashanhurst//​ was at the siege of Biddulph Old Hall with Sir William Brereton. Col. Edward Ashenhurst was a Major in March 1644, governed Paynsley Staffs, and was Colonel by November 1644, probably of the same regiment. ​+Randle Ashenhurst'​s regiment were formed by the authority of Ferdinando, Lord Fairfax after Ashenhurst left the service of Sir John Gell.
