-Foulis, William Fairfax and Matthew Alured all commanded troops in Lord Fairfax’s army of the Northern Association in early 1643, as did Alured’s brothers, [[http://​bcw-project.org/​biography/​john-alured|John]] and Charles. ​ While seemingly often acting independently,​ they appear to first have been regimented under Sir Henry Foulis. According to Alured'​s pay claim((N. A. SP28/​34/​399)) this was a single regiment under Colonels Sir Henry Foulis, Sir William Fairfax, and Matthew Alured in succession. By January 1644 Sir William Fairfax appears as Colonel, but was killed in action at Montgomery in the September and succeeded by Matthew Alured. ​+Foulis, William Fairfax and Matthew Alured all commanded troops in Lord Fairfax’s army of the Northern Association in early 1643, as did Alured’s brothers, [[http://​bcw-project.org/​biography/​john-alured|John]] and Charles. ​ While seemingly often acting independently,​ they appear to first have been regimented under Sir Henry Foulis.
