 +The rest of the regiment seems to have persisted in garrison at Drogheda and Dundalk. By 1647 Tichbourne had joined Parliamentary forces, fighting alongside Michael Jones. In 1649 the regiment was part of the parliamentary garrison of Drogheda (and Dundalk?) that surrendered to Inchiquin'​s Royalists in the July then partly defected to Inchiquin'​s force. Some remnants appear to have been present at Drogheda during Cromwell'​s storm and massacre of September 1649, An August 1649 Royalist muster at Drogheda noted //Their are allsoe many of Sir Henry Titchburne'​s redgment sicke, and noe allowance for them//​((Gilbert.
