-Gifford served as a captain or major in Inchiquin’s army in 1646 and by 1647 was in command of a regiment of foot, fighting at Knocknanuss. Following Inchiquin, the regiment fought on the Royalist side at Rathmines. ​They then retired to Cork where in the autumn of 1649 Gifford was one of the leaders of a revolt that resulted in them declaring for Parliament. In January 1650 they were reducing various strongholds in Munster. By the May George Monck was noted as Colonel but this appears either temporary or entirely nominal, as the regiment was soon disbanded. They may have joined Colonel Reeves’ Regiment.+Gifford served as a captain or major in Inchiquin’s army in 1646 and by 1647 was in command of a regiment of foot, fighting at Knocknanuss.
