 +Possibly Purefoy'​s regiment served at Stow on the Wold, if Major Hawksworth is to be equated with Major Hankefford of the Warwick Regiment: E.334.1 Lord Astley was taken prisoner at Stow by Nicholas Whitehead, servant to Major Hankefford of the Warwick Regiment. He gave his arms and money to Whitehead, seven pounds in Gold and three pounds in Silver.
