Notes

During 1647 Lisle’s regiment disappears from records, subsequent to Lisle and Inchiquin arguing and Lisle leaving Ireland at the end of his commission in the April. During April and May 1647 the regiment was planned to be given to John Dalbier, but instead probably ended up being reduced into Colonel William Kingsmill’s Regiment of Foot.
