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.

 In 1640 the regiment were given ash and red colours ((//ECW Flags and Colours 1: English Foot//, Stuart Peachey & Les Prince 1990, Partizan Press ISBN:​0946525846)).
