-====James Grey==== +====Colonel ​Grey==== 
-Previously ​a captain in Col. Thomas Grey's Foot. +According to Spring, this was James Grey, previously ​a captain in Col. Thomas Grey's Foot. However evidence uncovered by Ivor Carr suggests that Henry Grey, previously Lt Col of [[parliamentarian:​foot-regiments:​lord-grey-of-groby|Lord Grey of Groby'​s Regiment of Foot]] succeeded Rainsborough.  
 +====Colonel Henry Grey==== 
 +(Lieutenant Colonel of 09/02/44 - 22/09/44; Colonel 04/04/45 - 25/08/46. His service as Colonel is stated as having been in Lincolnshire. This suggests that we may be maybe dealing with two different regiments. In fact it appears Grey took over [[parliamentarian:​foot-regiments:​thomas-rainsborough|Colonel Thomas Rainsborough’s Regiment of Foot]] and that Spring is mistaken in giving this to Col James Grey) 
 +====Officer List==== 
 +  *Captain Henry Higgins (03/05/44 - 29/​08/​44)((N.A. SP28/​258/​book3/​37)) 
 +In May 1645 Parliament ordered that commissions be issued to various officers under Col. Henry Gray in Lincolnshire (Officers marked * had junior officers commissioned under them) 
 +  *Colonel Henry Gray* -Captain Lieutenant Robert Russell 
 +  *Lieutenant Colonel William Chandler 
 +  *Major Peter Stubber 
 +  *Captain Andrew Ruddock 
 +  *Captain Richard Lewis (for the company previously under Captain Tooleday) 
 +  *Captain [Owen] Cambridge* 
 +  *Captain [Robert] Bee* 
 +  *Captain [Samuel} Playford* ​  
 +Chandler, Stubber, Cambridge, Bee and Playford had all served under Rainsborough. Stubber however claimed to have served in Col. Rossiter'​s otherwise unknown regiment of Foot during the period in question. He later led [[commonwealth:​foot-regiments:​peter-stubber|Colonel Peter Stubber’s Regiment of Foot]] in Ireland.
